Lavender Vanilla Bean Palmiers are a simple yet elegant cookie. Only 5 ingredients! Make with fresh puff pastry or leftover scraps.

I’ll just say this up front- I am aware that there are many people who dislike lavender in food and that’s quite alright! I promise you I will not force you to make these cookies. I, on the other hand, love using lavender as a subtle ingredient. It adds a very unique flavor.  [Read more...]

These Dark Chocolate Chunk Rumchata Cookies are seriously amazing. People will beg you for the recipe!

I should make it clear right up front that this recipe is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Rumchata. I just really like the stuff and it’s not the first time I’ve used it in a recipe. What can I say, I love adding booze to dessert. I’ve previously used Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kalua, Chambord… it just adds such a tasty, fun element to my recipes. And it’s always a crowd pleaser. Walk into a room and say “Who wants boozy cookies?” The response is typically positive. [Read more...]

Chai Spiced Pistachio Snowdrop Cookies will add an exotic twist to your holiday parties!

What a strange, surreal, and freakish winter it has been so far. In less than one week Jeff and I are headed to Tucson, AZ for Christmas with his family and I cannot wait to get out of town. I feel distracted and unsettled. I’m tired. I’m also craving normalcy and my old routine and I know I might not get back there until the beginning of next year. It’s ok, though. Things are definitely moving in the right direction. And I’m looking forward to visiting with family and eating some quality Mexican food (something DC sadly lacks). [Read more...]
