On Chocolate Chip Cookies (The Remake)

I’m reposting this cookie recipe, which I just made recently for the two men while we were in-law-less this week, and I realized…I may have misprinted the recipe and needed to redig for it. SO I DID and I was WAY off…so I have adjusted the recipe and NOW it should be correct. Man oh…

On an UPDATED Sugar Cookies & Royal Icing

Now, I know that I posted a recipe for sugar cookies & royal icing links before, but this time, the amounts below are what works for me after years of trial, error, and adjustments. The biggest game-changer right now is that, per tutorials and guidance from a How To Cake It 4-class cookie tutorial, I…

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 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 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 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 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 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 Chocolate Chip Cookies

In what ended up being a 4 part experiment in nailing the perfect chocolate chip cookie…I did what anyone at their wits end would have done. I asked my mom! With this batch, I did the butter traditionally, softening it using a cool trick because my kitchen is almost the second coldest room in our…

On Mini Cheesecakes with Strawberries

This week’s baking challenge was cheesecake! Now, I know not many people like cheesecake (Frankie being one of them), but I happen to adore them, especially ones made for our monthly office birthday celebration by one of my coworkers! She makes all sorts of delicious flavors and they’re always gluten-free, which makes these cheesecakes even…
