Lemon Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies

How is everyone doing this fabulous Monday afternoon? Is it raining? Snowing? Otherwise miserable outside? Hopefully I will make your day a little better with these lemon vanilla cookies! Winter makes me gloomy, so naturally I wanted something bright, summery, and fresh to elevate my mood. These really did the trick. It’s funny because I got the idea from a vegan vlog. They took the animal products out and I threw them back in. How often does that happen? lol. I[Read more]

Melt In Your Mouth Molasses Cookies


Happy Wednesday! How is everyone’s week so far? I’ve been feeling pretty productive holiday-wise. The stockings are hung, the tree is up (smells soooooo good) and I even put up some lights outside. I’m exaggerating a bit on that last one since it’s been days now and the lights aren’t even plugged in yet. It’s quite pathetic, actually. At one point I gave up mid-decorating because I was fighting a colony of fire ants while trying to wrap some lights[Read more]

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

How is everyone doing this wonderful Wednesday morning? Are you glad to be halfway through the week? Today is a particularly exciting day for me because apparently a cold front is supposed to move through this evening! I’ll tell you, that’s been one of the weirdest things to get used to in Texas. The temperature change is sometimes so fast and so drastic that you can actually feel it happening. It could be 70 degrees outside and suddenly a gust of[Read more]

  Lovelies! Did you miss out on my Fluffy Pumpkin Sheet Cake? If so, there is no need to worry because I’m bringing you yet another (slightly modified) recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook (with “new” being 1981)!  I don’t quite prefer the terms “adapted” or “modified” to describe changing up a recipe. That is why I have decided to instead to call it a remix, and I hope you will too. One caveat: it’s imperative that you say[Read more]

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Hello, lovelies! Hopefully you caught last week’s Almond and Amaretto Cookie Fudge recipe. If so, then you already know I’m on an amaretto kick. I had some of those delicious little cookies left over, so I figured what better way to use them then to do a Tiramisu inspired layer cake. 🙂 I know that most of my cake entries focus on decorating alone, but for this one I think the flavors are the true star of the show (Plus my[Read more]

JUMBO Chocolate Chip Cookies

My high school had the best lunch program ever. Not only did we have a contract with Subway on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but the grannies in the kitchen sure knew how to throw together some tuna salad. They’d add negligible amounts of the healthy junk (celery) and opt instead to just load it with mayo. Then they’d slap a good glob of it between a hamburger bun and wrap each one in plastic wrap. It was heaven! I had a[Read more]
