Stars and Spice and Everything Nice

These are the ingredients to make the perfect little cookies… Not sorry about that reference. Or these babies. When you look at a typical sugar cookie coming into the holiday season, you imagine a crisp, yet soft, icing covered cookie. Probably decorated by your mom who was expecting you to help, or your overly eager…

Smorgasbord Cookies

One of the things I said I was going to do when I restarted my blog was transfer out some recipes and update some others. It’s kind of nice to go back and see some of the work you’ve done and how far you’ve come. I did this recipe redo before I flipped blogs, but…

Monday Squares

The Happy Baker is easily one of my favorite recipe book finds. All of her recipes are non-chalantly related to her dating/home life, which adds a little bit of humor and solidarity to whatever you’re making. As much as I love the book, Yum Yum Squares is not one of my favorite names for a…

Dark Chocolate Chip Blondies

Yahoo! My first recipe redo on the new blerg. If you’ve read my intro post, you’ll know that I initially started my blog to teach myself how to take better photos. One of the reasons I wanted to relaunch my blog was to go back through old recipes and recreate them to see if they were…
