Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions this year? I made a few. One is to be more punctual with my commitments. As you can see from this very late New Year’s post, it’s a work in progress. I have my mind set to be more proactive with my blog posts this year. Hopefully, like getting motivated to go to the gym, this resolution won’t die out by the end of February. Fingers crossed.
When I was a kid, one of my fondest memories of the Christmas season was pulling out the Christmas decorations from storage the day after Thanksgiving. That’s when it really hit us that Santa would be visiting in a month’s time. Back then, life was simpler. We stored all of our Christmas decorations in used, […]
The last of my giveaways this season is admittedly one I’m very excited about. Out of all the cookie cutter shapes in the world, I would have to say plaque cutters are the must-have pieces every cookie decorator should have in their cookie cutter arsenal. Plaque cutters not only cut beautifully shaped cookies, their shapes […]
Tis the season for giving! What better way to spread holiday cheer than to hand out more gifts!
With Thanksgiving now over, it’s officially Christmas season here on this blog! To start the celebration of this joyous holiday, I have a special gift for one lucky reader.
As we near closer to my favorite holiday, here’s one more idea I wanted to share for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities. Staple images like turkeys, pilgrims, and Native Americans are pretty common cookie designs around this time of the year. However, I haven’t see many Mayflower cookies. I hope to change that with this post. […]
Hello. Remember me? I used to blog about cookies, but seemingly dropped off the face of the Earth for 3 months. Well I’m back! I’m also totally fine, just needed a break and a recharge after what I would call “cookie burnout.” I’m kind of sad I didn’t come back from my hiatus in time […]
Plaque cutters are, by far, my favorite type of cookie cutter. Their shapes are typically whimsy and unique, while their purpose is so universal. Plaques are great for writing messages, creating name plates, and framing out a general image, just to name a few.
The inner kid in me can’t help but be giddy when a childhood cartoon gets remade into a live-action film. (X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe and How the Grinch Stole Christmas were some of my major giddy-enducers, just to name a few.) However, when a childhood cartoon gets remade into an edible treat, […]
One of my favorite summer activities is camping. I’m pretty lucky to live in a state with so many camping options. Whether it’s hiking in the lush green mountains of the San Juan Islands, or taking a wine-tasting excursion in the Yakima Valley desert, either way you are sure to come home from the experience […]
