Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing green? Gleefully pinching friends and strangers alike? Stuffed full of cabbage? Drunk before noon? Reminiscing fondly about the time St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland? What a weird, wonderful holiday this is. In keeping with this solemn celebration of Ireland’s patron saint, I have made you…

Pistachio Shortbread Cookies

Valentine’s Day may be long gone, but you will have to pry my heart-shaped cookie cutter from my cold, dead hands.* We’re talking shortbread cookies today, and I’m convinced that shortbread tastes best when cut into twee heart shapes, dipped in chocolate, and sprinkled with colorful accents. Don’t ask why, and don’t even think about…

Great news, guys! The universe gave my plan to get more sleep a giant cosmic high-five. Shortly after I posted about my resolution to sleep more and work less, I was stricken with the flu-flu, which is the clever name I just coined for when the influenza-flu and the stomach-flu get together and have a…

[Please note that that should be read in a cheerful, playful voice, not in a scary Jack-Nicholson-from-The-Shining-voice.] I took a short, unplanned hiatus from blogging after the holidays.

Some might even say “cute as a button.” Second, they’re packed with holiday flavors like cinnamon, ginger, molasses, chocolate […what? chocolate is an every-time flavor!], and orange zest. Third, one batch…

If ever there was a week for big ole cookies, it would be this week. These are “Heck yes, the weekend is coming!” cookies. These are also “I spent the last 48 hours fighting with my computer and my web host and now I want to swan dive into a giant pile of cookies and…

You guys, I just had the best week EVER. Jason took Asher on a trip to visit the grandparents for a week, leaving me home alone. I repeat: HOME. ALONE. Picture me doing the patented Macaulay Culkin hands-to-cheeks pose, but instead of screaming in fear, I’m shrieking with delight.
