On M&M Cookies

The other day, with all the cookie making I’ve been doing recently (check out my Facebook and Insta for the Mardi Gras themed cookies I made over the weekend!) Frankie asked me if I now preferred baking over cooking. The answer is no, I don’t prefer either over the other. In fact, while cooking provides…

On Gingerbread Sheet Cake & Christmas

It’s that time of year, when we pull out our most festive threads, put up & decorate the tree (which I think Frankie did a TERRIFIC job of doing this year), and deck our home in Christmas lights and ornaments in all the vases I almost never put any flowers into. Let’s just say, I am…

On Corgi Cut Out Sugar Cookies

First off…oh. My. Goodness. Thank YOU, all of YOU, my readers, my fans, my fellow corgi owners and Corgi fans for the positive feedback on these cookies! I have said time and time again, I am not a good baker, mostly because I don’t always have the patience or precision for it, but these cookies,…

On Asian Chicken Salad & Gluten Free Brownies

Cooking With Alex: We did do a quick recipe a couple weeks ago (after Alex was also sick…that summer bug is going around, so watch yourselves!) and I know I never got a chance to post it or talk about it, but since her busy season at work has started to pick up, our weekend…

On Sad Goodbyes, Wedding Plans, CSA, and Other Things

Okay y’all, so I know it’s been a bit of a drought without a good post, but planning a wedding and getting ready (with just about 100 days left to go) takes it all out of you. Plus, I was sick all last week, so my plans to work on a good post last week…

On Mini Turtle Cheesecakes with Salted Caramel Sauce

I can’t believe how much I look forward to these posts! I love to cook on my own, don’t get me wrong, but getting to cook with one of your best friends (and my oldest friend for that matter, going on almost 22 years of friendship) and see actual moments of what it is that…

On Christmas Parties & First Christmas Trees

I don’t know WHY I bothered trying three different grocery stores, but when it came to finding party sized samosas, spring rolls, and spanikopita, ONLY TONY’S HAD SOME! Seriously?! Ugh, and I think I may have posted about Tony’s when I was making Empanada’s and how Tony’s was the only place that sold the premade empanada…

On Baked Apples (aka. Rainy Day Away Apples)

My apologies dear readers for the delay. This season has been a busy one, but with Christmas only a week away, and all of my gifts now safely in transit or arrived at their various locations, I am able to finally breathe and get back to a more normalized schedule! Oh, and did I mention…

On Banana Cake

Fall = Baking Fever! I know I’ve really dropped the ball on the baking challenge I had set for myself at the beginning of the year, but with Fall officially upon us, all I want to do is fill my kitchen with warmth and the smell of baked pies and cake!! Basically, I want my…

On Pupcakes

On Sunday, we celebrated Tuggs’ Second Birthday! In dog years, that’s 14 years old, which makes Tuggs an actual dog, rather than a puppy, but he’ll always be my puppy forever. But to make his day a little more special (because I am that kind of dog mom, which if you don’t believe me, just…

On Smitten with Brown Butter Krispie Treats

So, we are still not totally unpacked, and likely won’t be for some time. Why is it so much faster to throw things into boxes than it is to pull things back out again? Yes, organizing is one of my most favorite things to do in this world, but at the same time, our dining…
