We recently received the new My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Fluttershy DVD and I couldn’t think of a more fun way to celebrate than with Fluttershy’s Cake Mix Cookies.

I’m always excited to attend the Macy’s Culinary Council events that take place at the Oxmoor Center here in Louisville.  There’s usually one that takes place right before the Derby so I’m able to get recipe inspiration for our Kentucky Derby party from the chefs that participate.

This shop and my soft molasses drop cookies have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MembersMarkCares #CollectiveBias

When I shared Gram’s recipe for Corn Fritters with you the other day, I mentioned how this time of year is when I seem to miss her most.  Spending time in the kitchen with her was something I always loved.

These Old Fashioned Soft Molasses Drop Cookies are topped with a maple glaze and a bit of walnut.

I’m fortunate to have many of my favorite recipes that were hers on recipe cards in her own handwriting.  For many years she always tucked one or two into my stocking at Christmas so I could add them to my collection. Continue reading »

There are a lot of times I’ve missed my Gram in the last year and a half since she passed, but this time of year it’s especially so.  Gram was all about Christmas and everything it entailed from making our own fresh wreaths in her barn to baking up fat stacks of cookies to deliver to friends and family to decorating her house from top to bottom.

Classic Candy Cane Cookies are the perfect sweet treat for the holidays

One of the cookies that she made every year were her Candy Cane Cookies.  They were probably my favorite holiday treat that she baked and she would bring them to our house by the dozen.  I’m pretty sure there may have been times I ate them by the dozen, too. Continue reading »

I have quite a collection of go-to Christmas cookie recipes.  Between my own that I’ve accumulated over the years plus family-favorites that I make every season, I’m never at a loss for something to bake.  But sometimes I like to browse online and see if there’s anything new out there that catches my eye, or even an old favorite that I’ve forgotten about.

Christmas Cookie Recipes: Sugar Cookies

One way to look for great recipes is with Bing Smart Search.  You don’t even need to open a browser, you can just swipe and tap to get started.  The search results are really visual; you get a web preview without even having to click.  I love that feature, especially when I’m searching for recipes or crafts.  Cutting down on unnecessary clicks saves me time.
