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. …

Making candy can be scary. I know it’s scary. I’ve tried making candy so many times and have been so unsuccessful that I’ve thought about giving up on the whole process, until I discovered the wonder that is gumdrops. These little homemade candies brought meaning back in my life, in that I really can make …

These are Zach’s fool proof slightly modified chocolate chip cookies, and I must say he worked very hard on them. =) These cookies are great in their normal state, but with the added candy bar pieces, they are unbelievable.

I’d be sad if many of you didn’t know what Rugelach was and where it originated from, but that is why we are here to learn new things and bake/cook fabulous dishes! 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 …

This is another one of those cookie recipes that I just had to try. I’ve had them before, but I’ve never actually made them. Since this year we have decided to make every cookie imaginable, these were of course at the top of our list! I didn’t realize that they would be so easy though! …
