Do you ever find yourself at work, not even close to lunch hour, but starving even after having a well-balanced breakfast? This happens to me all the time. I always bring some kind of snack to work to hold me over until lunch. It’s usually some kind of granola bar, nut mix, or muffin.
When I was a kid, I didn’t really like sprinkles on my cakes. I just thought that the texture was weird and it didn’t taste like anything, so what’s the point? I didn’t care for how it made cake more appealing or how festive they can be.
Now that I’m older, I can appreciate the use of sprinkles, even embrace it. That’s why I decided to try these funfetti cookies. They can really brighten a person’s day. These days, it’s all about making someone’s day just a little bit better from the life problems that we all have.
Sometimes you feel like you’ve had such a bad day that you just need to do something that will make you feel better… anything to get your mind off of all the bad things and just focus on what you are doing in the moment. Baking is that thing that helps me get through those bad times. I feel like no matter what I bake, I have a recipe right beside me to help me out.
There’s something about holidays that just scream sugar cookies. Just choose a shape and you’ve become very festive. My mom gave me a heart cookie cutter and that started my sugar cookie making. I first made these and I’ve been wanting to improve my cookie-cutting and icing skills.
I feel like you need to have the right tools in order to make good sugar cookies.
Apple pie is just one of those desserts that I either really love or just can have a couple bits of. You might think that sounds a bit crazy, but you’ll find out why very soon. So you know there are, at least in my books, two types of pie eaters: one who loves the filling and one who loves the crust.
A couple years ago, I decided to try and make Alton Brown’s version of the classic Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie and decided that this is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (as you might have seen here). The only thing I changed was the size of the cookie. I didn’t have the same size scooper as Alton Brown used in the recipe, so I just used the one I had on hand.
Have you ever had the Mother’s iced oatmeal cookies? They’re the crunchy oatmeal cookies with the icing on top… or you can just take a look at the picture here. Yep, it will definitely jog your memory of having these cookies before. If you haven’t, then you can either go buy some or make these cookies right here!
Cut-out sugar cookies are something that I want to master. They’re just so versatile and you can make them for any occasion with just a good sugar cookie recipe, some cookie cutters, and royal icing. When I saw these cookies on Not Martha’s website a few weeks back, I knew I had to try these. Sure, it might be way out of my league (I’ve only made cut-out sugar cookies twice in the past), but I knew I wanted to try them in the near future. I immediately sent the link to D- thinking he’d be amused by the cookie, and he told me that his workplace is actually holding a bake-off for their Halloween party. We totally were going to make this for the bake-off.
