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 with a laundry basket full of dirty clothes that smell like a campfire.
Looking for a unique cookie idea that doesn’t require a ton of time to decorate? Then I have just the one for you, and it’s perfect for the upcoming Fourth of July weekend. These patriotic bunting cookies use only 3 colors and require only a single icing consistency.
Baking Star Wars fans, you’re in for a sweet treat today. The people at ThinkGeek have an array of Star Wars trinkets to geek out over. However, if you are in need of some rebel help in the kitchen, this might be the droid you are looking for.
By now, you might know that I have a great appreciation for anything vintage or retro, as evident by my old-fashion telephone cookies, retro back-to-school cookies, vintage vacation cookies, and vintage letter cookies.

Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you! If you regularly follow this blog you know I like to do something special on this special day.

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 […]
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 […]
