Decorative Sugar Cookies – Jaladay Style

Happy Jaladays! As gifts this year, I decided to make jalapeño-shaped cookies for my clients. As fate would have it the stars aligned, and Etsy delivered, so I was able to get an adorable custom cookie cutter in the shape of my logo from The Fussy Pup, as well as custom cookie tins from the […]

Old Fashioned Gingerbread

While I’ve made my share of gingerbread men, (not really) ugly Christmas sweaters, and other ginger-themed cookies in the past, a friend of mine requested I make some actual gingerbread for a dinner he was hosting.

The recipe calls for matzah cake meal which, from what I understand, is just finely ground matzah. I’d recommend going out […]

Matzah Bark 2013

It’s a bit of a cop out to re-do a recipe, but I haven’t made this in 3 years! And it’s fantastic, quick and easy to make, and I did put a 2013 spin on it! I also had mentioned it to my coworkers, and they were eager to try it. It’s so easy to […]
