Sugar Cookie Bars with Fluffy Frosting

These copy cat Lofthouse sugar cookie bars are fast and easy…and perfect for when you need to feed a small army something deliciously sweet. These remind me of the sugar cookies with frosting you find in the grocery store I used to devour as a kid…except way better!

Coconut Macaroons Three Ways

I don’t hate Mondays anymore.  I used to.  I used to have the Sunday scaries – when you have that deep pit in your stomach because you know the next day is work.  Nah.  That takes way too much mental energy, not to mention how bad it is for your health. That was when I’d…

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

Happy International Women’s Day!  Wooo hoo!   On International Women’s Day, I thought I’d pull out a few facts related to mothers, who are the life source (literally and figuratively) of our society.  There are so many issues expectant mothers face and we haven’t made much progress on them…yet.  Here are some of the issues…

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

On a scale from 1-10, how much do you love this classic?  A 14?  Yep.  Me, too….

Funfetti Cookies

This past week, John and I went to a lawyer who specializes in estate planning.  But what “estate” do you have, Kathryn?  My thoughts exactly.  We don’t have a Ferrari parked in our townhouse parking lot, and we certainly don’t have overseas accounts from all the cash I’m raking in teaching.  Hell, we can barely…

No Bake Oatmeal Cookies with Peanut Butter and Chocolate

‘Memba these from back in the day?  There isn’t one particular memory associated with these oatmeal, chocolate, and peanut butter cookies but they give me a general sense of nostalgia for the seemingly endless summer nights that were some of the most carefree days imaginable.  My best friend’s mom used to make these and they…
