This was my first SF foodie event!
A holiday cookie swap at 18 Reasons in the Mission. After last year’s successful swap in Boston, I was excited to find another one to participate in this year. All I had to do was bring 3 dozen cookies for sampling and swapping. [...]
I baked for the sake of baking over the weekend. I had no one to feed nor an occasion to celebrate, I just wanted to make something in the kitchen. The result was quite delightful.
I made a shortbread type cookie flavored with almond extract. Dipped in chocolate and topped with powdered sugar, [...]
The latest sweet treat to come out of my kitchen is a white cookie sandwich a.k.a. oreos blanche.
I made soft sugar cookies and butter cream frosting for the filling, both with a touch of lemon zest to cut some of the sweetness.
These cookies were an exercise in patience and [...]
I looked back over the past month, and was surprised to see a grand total of two savory recipes on this blog (I can’t count Lindsay’s spicy recipe from yesterday, a breath of sugarless air!) I suppose I don’t put the same effort into making lunch and dinner as I do [...]

It’s Christmas Eve, it’s still Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa starts on Monday! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend with family, friends, and hopefully a fireplace.

Sit back in your seats for this post, there is a lot to see.
The cookie swap yesterday was a big success. I have never seen so many different types of cookies before in my life, not even in the supermarket. The goal for bakers was to bring as many cookies [...]
We are just about to head out for the Cookie Swap for a Cause. I figured it is safe to tell you all about my cookie recipe now.
I wanted to make something special with a simple execution, because more cookies is better. I decided on thumbprints because they are a [...]
I had big plans for the past weekend.
I have never made a gingerbread house from scratch so I decided to give it a go on Saturday afternoon. First, I loaded up on candy for decoration at the corner convenience store. They have 2 for $1 bags for candy, so I got a [...]
This is quite possibly the most important thing I will ever post on the blog.
Speculoos cookie butter is now available at Trader Joe’s.
A deliciously unusual spread reminiscent of gingerbread and made with crushed biscuits.
I opened it the moment I got home from the grocery [...]
