When I discovered the recipe for these cookies, they seemed simple enough to try on a busy night. I did, and they were the softest, most wonderfully vanilla-y and butter-y cookie I’d ever had. I loved them. So, the tender, sweet goodness that is these cookies has become a fixture in my cookie jar. Speaking […]

It’s been quite a while since I last baked. Baking takes precision, measuring, several bowls … all excesses that I just haven’t had time for recently. I’ve been working hard on writing, taking care of my children all the while. Life, it just keeps moving no matter how much you wish it would slow down […]

It all started last night, when one of my oldest friends called to say that she and her family were in the area. They wanted to get together. Sure, great! I thought. Living in two different states and different worlds – her in the city and I in the burbs, it certainly hasn’t been easy […]

Today, I made peppermint bark, dozens and dozens of vanilla bean cookies, a roast, roasted potatoes, and other things that elude me. And now, I can barely keep my eyes open. Scratch that. I can’t keep my eyes open. It’s been a long day. Back to the biscotti – this is the second year that […]

I spent Tuesday morning doing something I despise. Ironing. A sheet. It seems that despite the expensive price of this sheet set, the manufacturer couldn’t quite make something that would come out of the dryer without deeply embedded wrinkle lines. Ugh. So, section by section, I ironed, starched and ironed again until it was all […]

Back in April, Kalyn posted a question to me here. I tactfully (or perhaps not so tactfully) ignored it because it wasn’t one I was ready to answer in public. But I think I have waited a sufficient amount of time now. So, the answer is yes, Kalyn, I am pregnant. Will, my sweet little […]

I received The Good Home Cookbook in the mail a few days ago after Andy of Spittoon Extra fame alerted me to these babies being given away to good homes so long as they got honestly written about. Honesty? That’s my specialty! First off, I was totally shocked by the size of this cookbook. It’s […]

I am not a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies. Really. I rarely touch them. So you can imagine my surprise when that was exactly what I wanted – no craved – last week. It must be the hot weather getting to me…or the medicine for the bronchitis (yes, ladies and gentlemen, I managed to […]

I made these triple chocolate chunk chocolate cookies. YUM. Let me tell you. They are simply amazing. The combination of flavors is exquisite. My husband was so excited about them that he ate three as soon as he came home. But then again, so did I. That’s why I have been bad. I ate too […]
