It’s probably no secret that I enjoy sketching out cookie designs. Actually, it’s my favorite part of the cookie-making process. A few years ago, I mentioned some of the drawing resources that have helped me improve upon my cartooning skills. From those resources, there is one tip in particular I found very helpful to keep in mind while sketching that I wanted to share.
Hocus pocus! You know, if I had magical powers I would make it autumn already. The long days of summer have been great, but I say bring on the cooler temps! I’m most excited about the fall jacket weather. Not because it’s cozier to have layered options, but functionally, jackets mean extra pockets. Over the […]
Summer is nearly over, but I wanted to fit in one more summer themed treat before we all get flooded with pumpkin spiced everything (“hashtag” cantwait).

Hello from southern California! After a two month break I’m finally settled into my new digs and ready to get back to baking. I really do miss Seattle, but I’m slowly embracing what sunny SoCal has to offer– one of them being the beach!
Possibly the most underrepresented animal around Easter time is the lamb. Sure you have your basic bunnies and baby chicks that steal the show, but in my opinion the lamb is where it’s at. Lambs just add such shear warmth (literally) to the spring season. It could also be time to write the people at […]
Top o’ the evening to ya! As promised in my last post, today I’m going to share with you the cookies that accompanied my St. Patrick’s Day hat cookies. These rainbow pot of gold cookies will add some considerable bling to any St. Paddy’s Day dish. It all begins with a common cookie cutter you […]
