spring break this year happened to be the week before easter, which meant that holden and fam were able to join us in some of our easter traditions and activities. one such tradition in this house involves an overkill of spring themed sprinkles and the decorating of easter cookies. with hazel down for the count, […]
much the same as my stress making of pies for thanksgiving, i attempted to bring all the holiday joy by baking a million cookies. i kicked things off with some old favorites from over the years, plus some hits from last year. i made up the cut out sugar cookie dough (regular AND gluten free!) […]
