I‘m so late to posting my Easter cookies this year, but that’s okay. What I’m about to show you could work for any occasion.
When I was searching for springtime inspiration, I randomly came across a brilliant post by Andrea of It’s the Life. She shows how to easily make an edible moss effect for cakes and cupcakes. It’s genius really. Luckily, with a few tweaks to Andrea’s method, it works for cookies, as well.
A special miracle occurred in the cookie world last week. Two cookie bloggers that I truly admire, Georganne of LilaLoa and Callye of Sweet Sugarbelle, each gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Callye and Georganne are so admired and highly regarded as leaders and teachers in the cookie community. I guess you could say […]
I know, I know. It’s been over a month since my last post, but I swear I have a good excuse. My month of March has been crazy (the phrase “March Madness” seems totally fitting). The workload at my day job has picked up, which keeps the days interesting but busy. Family also came to […]
I always look forward to St. Patrick’s Day. Some people might consider it a non-holiday, a day not worth celebrating. However, I find a day of green beer, Irish whiskey, and dreams of finding pots of gold quite festive. Plus, this year it’s a great excuse to consume more adult beverages than you should on […]

I‘m not a huge football fan, but there is no escaping the excitement when your home team is having a great season. And what a season it was. Now the Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl! If you’re making cookies for the big game, most likely you’ve gotten requests for the teams’ logos. […]
I have been on a vintage kick lately. It could very well be a carry-over from my last Downton Abbey post. There is just something charming about vintage style I’m really drawn to. This also could explain why I tend to linger around the Tim Holtz scrapbook section at craft stores. In fact, it was […]
For the past few years, usually starting around January, I form this annual habit— I speak with an annoying English accent. You see, it happens every time I finish watching an episode of Downton Abbey. I can’t help it! It’s not like I have full conversations with people with the accent. I just like repeating […]
New Year’s is always so bittersweet for me. I’m really looking forward to what 2014 will bring, but I also can’t help reflecting on how fast the past year has gone by. There were so many ideas I wanted to try out this year but just couldn’t find the time. That seems to happen every […]
