    Lucky Charm Cookies are the perfect last minute St Patricks Day treat!  They are not only super fun they are SUPER YUMMY!! Are you a Lucky Charm? I was strolling down eh cereal aisle the other day, remembering all the kid cereal I ate growing up.  Everything from Coco Puffs to Captain Crunch (I liked the one with berries) to Cookie Crunch… and then I saw Lucky Charms.  I LOVED the marshmallows in Lucky Charms so much.   The unicorn was my favorite one, but I was also a big rainbow fan as well.  As I was standing there reminiscing for a second it hit me… let’s put them into…

  • Iced Sugar Cookies

    These Classic Iced Sugar Cookies are a MUST MAKE.  They are super tender, topped with a delicious icing with hints of vanilla bean in each bite and fun sprinkles.  A perfect cookie for any Holiday or Special Occassion. No rolling here One of the things that annoys me about sugar cookies is having to roll them out.  Rolling pins and I don’t have the best relationship.  I tend to roll things too thin, or not thin enough…it just never seems to be right.  With these cookies though there is no rolling…that is one of the reasons why I love these cookies. I also love how tender they are.  Not so…

  • Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

    Sugar Cookies have never been better than these Gluten Free Sugar Cookies!  Yes… Gluten Free and they are AMAZING! The Great Sugar Cookie Debate… Are you a thin & crispy sugar cookie person or a fluffy and chewy sugar cookie person?  For me I like both.   My MeeMaw would make me her sugar cookies every time I would come see her (you can find the recipe here), and they were thin & crispy and SO GOOD!  Like super yummy, I would eat all of them and not share with anyone. On the other hand we had a family friend who would make more of a lofthouse kinda cookie with…

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

    It is pumpkin season and these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect Fall treat. Pumpkin + Chocolate = Must Make I am all about pumpkin anytime but when you throw chocolate to the mix… well I am ALL IN.  I love pumpkin pie spice (especially this Trader Joe’s version) and chocolate together.  I first fell in love with spiced chocolate when I made these Mexican Spiced Brownies several years back. I love how the spices really mesh with the bitterness of the chocolate and enhance each other.  I know that sounds very foodie but try it… you will see what I am talking about. Extra Chocolate… Please Can there…

Here are my little secrets to making the best curd.  Patience and a wooden spoon.  First, know that you are going to stir quite a bit and that the time will vary each and every time you make it.  Second, your…
