Dog Bone Cookie Tutorial

The holiday season is upon us and a wonderful seasonal tradition for many is making cookies! But before you rush out to the stores to stock up on cookie cutters you will use once a year (although I fully admit to having plenty of those and I will probably still buy more), take a look at what you already have or treat yourself to new cutters that you can find uses for all year round.  You can put a ...

Thanks for Nothing! Thanksgiving Cookies

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks, it's also a time for eating. Unless of course, you're on the menu.

Halloween Alice and Wonderland Cookies

Did I mention I love Halloween? There are so many directions you can go with Halloween, it's so versatile - from cute and funny to spooky and fun all the way to gruesome and gory. Generally, I tend not to be a big fan of the last one. I don't watch horror movies because they are too scary. Hocus Pocus is about my Halloween speed. Since meeting my husband I have ventured out to a few haunted ... Read the Post

Happy Halloween Eve! Halloween Cookies

I feel ashamed that it has taken me till Halloween to write about Halloween. My favorite holiday, it warrants a month long celebration of Halloween desserts, foods and decor. But I suppose my celebrating, decorating, baking and multiple trips to the pumpkin patch have kept from the blogging part! To be fair, I did manage to get in a set of It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown cookies, an ode to ... Read the Post
