Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies
I am a Britney Spears fan. Big Time. Like I almost filmed my very own “Leave Britney Alone” video. Yes, I know that she can’t really sing that well. And yes, of course I feel embarrassed when I have great indie bands grouped into the same playlist as BSpears on my Spotify…but what can I [...]
Peanut Butter Cream’wiches
‘Twas the night before the Cookie Swap and all through the kitchen; I was cooking and baking and moanin’ and bitchin’. I’ve been here for hours, I can’t stop to rest. This rooms a disaster, just look at this mess! Tomorrow I’ve got three dozen cookies to send. Will the hunt for the perfect cookie
Biscoff Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting
I have a secret that I kept from y’all. Wednesday was my birthday! I was really nervous about this birthday. Growing up I had set goals and ages that I thought I should reach those goals by…funny how clear hindsight is. I told anyone who would listen that by 22, I would graduate college. By more »

Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts
Growing up I had a serious obsession with sparkles, sequins, or polka dots…and any dress that had one of those items, and I had to have it. It didn’t matter the color, or the style, I only had eyes for the shine. I would grab any dress that caught my eye and show my Mom who [...]
Simply Perfect Lemon Curd
Situation 1: You go to the store for milk and see that Oreo’s are B1G1 Free. So you buy 4 packages of Oreo’s…because you know, they are B1G1 and helllooo they go perfect with that gallon of milk your wife asked you to pick up. -If you are this type of person, you are a [...]
Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken
Considering how well y’all took to me re-blogging the Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, I decided to proclaim this week throwback week. So far I have managed to watch season one of Buffy, drink a Sonic Oceanwater with vodka (helloooo highschool, err ummm college), and listened to as many boy bands as
