I decided to take a leap of faith here and try something new. No I’ve never made dog cookies before, but I had to. Just had to. Poor little Cilantro sits there and watches me every day as I make the daily cookie, and his cute little face just looked so sad. I knew he …

I really wanted to make something with marshmallow this year (even though Zach doesn’t like it – I know he doesn’t like anything!), and my time is running out. With only 3 Days left of 20 Days of Christmas Cookies, I had to come up with something before it was too late! Fudge doesn’t count. …

Rugelach is an inspiring, yet challenging cookie that is so rewarding if done right. It has nutty, fruity goodness combined with a sweet, …

Caramel…Butter…Bars…What is not to love about that name for a recipe? I haven’t really taken a stab at caramel this year yet (for Christmas cookies that is). That’s because I have little to no luck with the stuff. I could go on and on about my experiences: about how the last time I tried to …
