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 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 Sweet Potato Jerky and Gluten Free Dog Biscuits

As much as I love my pup, sometimes, he can be just a little pathetic when he stares at me in the kitchen, but I don’t blame him! Here I am cooking and baking away for me and the main man of the house, and the little fur ball only gets table scraps (and by…

On Dog Treats 2.0

As much as I love my pup, sometimes, he can be just a little pathetic when he stares at me in the kitchen, but I don’t blame him! Here I am cooking and baking away for me and the main man of the house, and the little fur ball only gets table scraps (and by…

On Chocolate Chip Cookies: The Final Chapter [OR IS IT?!]

Part 3: Nope, this is not it…and browning butter? Yeah, definitely not a fan of that. I didn’t even get to baking this batch because 1) I couldn’t stand the smell, or taste, of the butterscotch embedded in the batter, and 2) My batter basically hardened like a caramel…ugh, baking is hard ya’ll. I’m telling…

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 Chocolate Chip Cookies Part 2

Now that I think about it, I should have asked my mom for this recipe YEARS ago…this is where I should have started, because these cookies? ALMOST PERFECT! [So, yes, there will be a part 3, but no recipe for this post…I want to share the final recipe when I’ve tested it to perfection, but…

On Chocolate Chip Cookies Part 1

As I bake more often, I’m realizing that the process of baking makes me incredibly nervous, where cooking relaxes me, excites me. Baking excites me too, or rather the idea of it, but I find I second guess myself a lot when I’m in the actual process of baking. For one, is my butter too…

On Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

It’s baking time! Last week’s brownies were a big hit, so I thought this week, since Frankie was craving them just a little, I would make Oatmeal Raisin cookies! Not the most complicated thing to make, but I’m working up to it! My hope is, one day, I’ll be making adult birthday cakes (or Funfetti…
