Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

I’m all about pumpkin lately, as you’ll see in my upcoming posts, and why not? ‘Tis the season! I’ve been snapping up recipes even faster than I’ve been snatching cans of pumpkin from the food store. I’ve made pumpkin soup, put pumpkin in my breakfast smoothie, some in my tomato sauce, and, of course, in […]

Snickerdoodles

It was time for Baking GALS again this month, and I decided to try something new – Snickerdoodles. I have always enjoyed eating these cookies, the same way I enjoy just about anything that involves cinnamon. I had a few recipes logged away, but this one seemed the most straight-forward, and I tried my best […]

Peanut Butter Cookies

For a friend’s birthday, I wanted to send her a little treat. Her grandmother always made the best peanut butter cookies ever, so I thought I’d try to match those and send her some. (I hope these compare, you’ll have to let me know!) I scoured a bunch of recipes, and finally decided on one […]

Jello Cookies

I was looking for a kid-friendly recipe for a barbecue around the 4th, and considered doing red, white, and blue layered Jello when I came across this recipe. They seemed simple enough to make, and I thought it was a pretty cool idea to use the Jello for the flavoring in the cookies. (You could […]

Baking Gals #1 (for me, anyway)

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you’re all surrounded by love and happiness today and every day! This past week was the first time I participated with Operation Baking Gals, and it was really exciting for me. I stumbled upon this post from Brown Eyed Baker while going through her archives for recipes, and it […]

Superbowl 2010

Ah, the Superbowl. A whole lot of preparation and chaos (and food!) for a few hours of camaraderie (yelling) amongst friends. I went to a party with the friends I normally watch pro games with during the season, and it was insanely fun. I brought some dessert by request, and I’m totally fine with that. […]

Homemade Oreos!

How awesome is it finding a recipe for something you love, and hearing from the people that have already made it that it’s spot on? I was so excited to find this recipe. I figured these were my dad’s favorite cookies, and let’s face it they’ve got to be most peoples’, so I couldn’t wait […]

Apricot Rugelach

For the second installment of the 2010 Tax Season Cookie Rollout, I decided to make what I recently discovered was my dad’s favorite cookie – apricot rugelach. I had no idea. Seriously, the man loves chocolate so I would have said Oreos. (They’re coming, Dad.) Turns out my grandma used to make these kind, and […]

2010 Tax Season Cookie Rollout – Pinwheel Cookies

Thanks, Mom, for this headline. My father’s an accountant and for a few months every year he disappears into the seemingly infinite abyss of 1040s and W2s and whatnot. I decided I wanted to make him some cookies to help him cope, and when my mother told me he was already losing weight I knew […]

Jersey Shore and Biscotti

At work a week and a half ago we had a Jersey Shore viewing party. If you don’t know about Jersey Shore, you’re probably better off, but I LOVE IT! Total guilty pleasure show, but I’m not as ashamed of it as you might think – or maybe as I should be. Anyways, I’m not […]
