I had the pleasure of going on Talk of the Town last Friday to bake my Soft-Baked Sugar Cookies. The holidays can be nuts, so I set out to make a sugar cookie recipe that is super simple and totally kid-friendly. These are not only fun to eat but a joy to make!
The stockings are not quite hung by the chimney with care ... but I'm working on it! Christmas decorating started today and to get us in the mood, I turned on Elf, lit a fraiser fur candle, and whipped up a batch of these Chewy Molasses Cookies.
I love living in the South but one thing I've always wanted to participate in is the Northern tradition of apple picking. Yes, we have great summer peaches and blackberries here in the South but there is something about the crisp fall air and the idea of picking apples with your family that makes me, well, a little jealous.
A couple of months ago, I went to the opening of Sprinkles in Nashville. I was thrilled to get a swag bag with yes, cupcakes. I was even more excited though about the cookies included. I had no idea Sprinkles even had cookies! Oh, do they have cookies. The most amazing cookies.
Lately I have been snacking on pretzels dipped in Nutella. Sweet and salty. A dangerous combination. One afternoon while scraping the bottle of the Nutella jar with the very last pretzel (don't you dare judge me), I had a thought ... a brilliant thought. Why not make Nutella brownies with a pretzel crust? I didn't know just how brilliant this idea was until I made them. And ate them. All.
It's a Snickerdoodle time of year. As the weather gets cooler and we move into full-fledged fall, these sugary cinnamon cookies are just what your taste buds ordered.
I'm not kidding. These Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies are the chewiest most delicious creation. They are almost like the texture of toffee cookies but chocked full of oats, fruit and nuts.
Valentine's Day is this week which means it's time for pink and red heart shaped goodies for the ones you love. It's time to make something sweet for your sweetie and these Linzer cookies are really something special.
Several years ago my mom gave me an adorable cookbook from the London's famed Hummingbird Bakery. While I'm dying to travel across the pond to try their sweet treats in person, the homemade versions will just have to do.
So how long did you think that it would take for me to get back to baking?! After a couple of weeks of green smoothies, granola bars and hummus, my sweet tooth finally won out and I my oven came calling.
I recently spoke at the Keen Digital Summit about Food Styling (check out my 10 Food Styling Tips to Make Your Food Photographs Delicious). I really wanted to make something for the attendees of my session. Because most of the bloggers, small business owners and publisists that came to the conference were from out of town, I decided to make a "Nashville Cookie" to showcase some of Nashville's best ingredients.
