Eggnog Spice Cookies

Eggnog Spice Cookies

  Eggnog is one of those love-it or hate-it things that’s pretty divided into those two categories. Some people get SO excited for the holidays because of eggnog, and others cringe at the thought of it. And while I wish I could commit to a side, I’m honestly in the middle. Sometimes, I crave eggnog [Read more >>]

Rudolph Cookie Bites

Rudolph Cookie Bites

I just love these adorable, edible reindeer! When it comes to crafts, I’m best with food-related crafts. I’ve always been envious of the people who can take glittery picks and sparkly ribbon and create gorgeous wreaths. Or those who can take random household objects to create amazing, one-of-a-kind doodads, like a chandelier made of Mason [Read more >>]

Oreo Ornaments

OREO ORNAMENTS!

If it were socially acceptable (or if my family would allow it) I would be putting up Christmas decorations the day after Halloween. Christmas is my favorite holiday by far. I love the feeling in the air, I love shopping for presents, wrapping them, blasting Christmas music, baking Christmas cookies, and decorating my house like a [Read more >>]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not going to maintain a diet during the holidays. My attempts will be futile and I should just give up now. I mean, let’s face it: yesterday I kinda sorta engorged myself on turkey, stuffing, and the like. And today, I’m having leftovers of the same meal [Read more >>]

Dessert “CONE-UCOPIAS”

Dessert Coneucopias

Did any of you guys ever watch Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee when it was on the Food Network? I was weirdly obsessed with Sandra Lee’s show. One, because her recipes were great — I love that semi-homemade approach to cooking. And two, because her tablescapes were always so stunning. But I had to wonder: WHERE did [Read more >>]

Scarecrow Oreo Pops

Fall is, by far, my favorite season. There’s nothing like cuddling up at night and watching a movie by the fire; drinking piping hot, fresh-pressed apple cider; going pumpkin or apple-picking; the homey scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, apple, and clove; the baking that comes along with those same scents; scarves; boots; chunky-knit sweaters… the list is [Read more >>]

Caramel Apple Oreo Pops

Have you guys seen the new Caramel Apple Oreos yet? They. Are. Life-Changing. For a caramel-apple lover like myself, I could not stop eating these bad boys! They taste exactly like caramel apples in cookie form… a dangerously delicious invention, if you ask me. Besides pumpkin, nothing says ‘fall’ to me more than caramel apples! Every [Read more >>]

Cherry Cookies

Cherry Cookies // Miss Candiquik

Any other 80′s babies out there?! Was it just me, or were cherries quite popular in the 90′s? Think cherry tattoos, cherry rearview mirror ornaments…you with me? Cherry seat covers. They were right up there with the fuzzy dice. In fact, I saw someone with the cherries dangling from their rearview mirror in their car [Read more >>]

Sunflower Cookie Pops

So yes, I’ve been known to hoard candy. And sprinkles. Because you just never know when you’re going to need candy corn to make sunflower cookies, right!? Or jumbo nonpareils for eyeballs. I’m sure some of you understand… Well today I was glad I had not only one color of candy corn, but TWO. (Keep [Read more >>]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Lollipops

Cookie-Pops-11b

When it comes to desserts, I have my staples. One of them being chocolate chip cookies. Probably because not much beats a warm homemade chocolate chip cookie in my book. They’re quick and simple to make, they melt in your mouth and there’s just something sooo comforting about gooey chocolate chips, buttah, and sugar… So [Read more >>]
