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 weekday. (Note: Drink responsibly, kids!)
Recently, I’ve gotten a few emails from people interested in decorating cookies but weren’t sure what supplies were needed to get started. I figured I’d take the time to list a few tools I think are most helpful for those wanting to give decorating cookies a try. Some of these items aren’t essential for decorating […]
Last weekend, I picked up a new toy that I can’t wait share with you. I was roaming the scrapbook aisle of a Michaels craft store and found a cool-looking stencil by Heidi Swapp.
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. […]

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 […]
Merry Christmas Eve! Boy, has it been a crazy month. With putting in overtime at work during the week, mixed with holiday parties (and the accompanied holiday hangovers) on the weekends, it’s been a challenge finding time for making and posting about cookies. I know it might be too late to actually make these in […]
What do you get when you have the skilled, professional background of an architect crossed with the talent for making some killer cookies? Edible ingenuity, that’s what! That’s how I describe my friend Rebecca, The Cookie Architect.

With good reason, it just looks really cool and retro. I’m in awe every time I see an artist’s hand-lettered work on chalkboard. Case in point: Arty McGoo’s awesome chalkboard cookies. […]
