Yard Line Cookies


Football season is almost here! I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest football fan but I like watching the games because they’re a great excuse to gather friends and eat some good food! The extent of my football knowledge is the rules can be confusing and fantasy football is a big deal. That’s about it. So I always make sure I bring good treats to make up for [Read more >>]

Coffee Shortbread Cookies


I wouldn’t need much if I was ever stranded on a desert island. Drop me off with a Kindle full of mystery books, a hammock, and my dog, Finley.  Oh, and can I please have a full coffee shop on this desert island? There would never be a line early in the morning! I’ve watched my fair share of Gilligan’s Island and am confident I could rig up [Read more >>]

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

I absolutely, positively cannot apologize for posting Valentine’s recipes early. For one, it’s my job. The second the Christmas candy goes on clearance and the heart-shaped candies come out, it’s game-on. And secondly, everyone is all rah-rah kale and diets in January. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to run from the kale and ruin [Read more >>]

Chocolate Dipped “Good Fortune” Cookies

Chocolate Dipped Good Fortune Cookies

I cannot believe that 2015 is this week. Seriously, I thought I was just celebrating 2014 last month — now you mean to tell me it’s already a new year?! In years past (when I was younger and chipper and able to stay up late), I would wait until midnight and run outside banging pots and [Read more >>]

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 >>]

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 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 >>]

Graveyard Chocolate Doughnuts


I really want to take this time to personally thank the person who invented breakfast pastries. Croissants, doughnuts, danishes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, bear claws … thank you. Because without you, breakfast would essentially be eggs and oatmeal. And if breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, why not [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 >>]
