The Fear of Making Macarons

The Fear of Making Macarons Do you know dogs and bees smell fear? I am pretty sure that pastries can smell it from a mile away as well.  About a year ago macarons were popping up everywhere, except in Arizona of course. At first I didn’t pay much attention, but then I became intrigued.  I started reading about making macarons.

Birthday Cookies for Nana

Cookies for Nana There is nothing quite like creating a unique gift for a very special person.  This week I was blessed to be able to make birthday cookies for Nana.  Aleene Wilcox, born February 17, 1920, is my Nana.  She is known for her hospitality and grace to all who come in contact with her.  Aleene, came from a different era.

One of my customers helped me come up with a great new product during Christmas that I am so excited to share with you.  She wanted to decorate cookies...

Happy Birthday Jesus

Happy Birthday Jesus!   Tomorrow is a very special day that my family loves to celebrate. We have just a few Christmas traditions that we do every year. One of our favorites is making Jesus a birthday cake. And yes, we sing Happy Birthday Jesus! After all it is celebration of His birth.  It started when my son was young.  A visual picture to help remind him of the significance of what Christmas was all about. Now my son is older. Yet he still loves this tradition. It is really neat for me...

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012: Clove Crisps

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012: Clove Crisps I am so excited to be apart of The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012. It took me a couple of weeks to figure out what recipe I was going to make. I finally narrowed it down to three different cookies, but one cold evening the cookie I choose spoke to me. Yup, that’s right my cookies speak to me! What is better on a cold winter night than a spicy cookie with hot coffee or tea? A few weeks ago social media sites were buzzing about The...
