Easter Egg Cookie & Jelly Bean Tic-Tac-Toe!

I have made many cookie tic-tac-toe sets. They consist of a giant cookie “board” and LOTS of cookie minis of various designs, but these guys…so much easier! Just one large egg cookie with a side of jelly beans, and you’ve got yourself a sweet treat of fun for the Easter baskets! A brief low-down on how I created them […]

Easy Bird Nest Cookies for Spring

It feels like an eternity since I’ve posted something new on the blog. The last few weeks have been a flurry of school obligations, home life, and Cookie Con. The latter being the most fun and most exhausting. I think I have finally recovered from talking cookies for 3 days straight, yet the loot I amassed from the trip […]

Good Eggs

For those who know me personally, know my love of eggs. I eat them every day. Over-medium, poached, scrambled, or soft boiled. As a quiche, on a bagel, with cheeses or toast. So versatile.

Keep Calm and Hop On

I finally got the cookie mojo back last week and began some Easter holiday goodies! Of course I am quickly running out of time to get them all done, but I will do my best to accomplish as many as possible. I do not own a KopyKake (yet!), so my lettering always lacks the perfection and […]
