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 […]
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. […]

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 […]
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.
