  • Coconut Macaroons

    Coconut Macaroons. I think I first started making these for my in-laws for Passover early in our marriage. The first time I brought them my husband’s grandparents jubilantly stated that these were the best macaroons they had ever had. Ever. Coconut macaroons were their favorite cookie so they knew what they were talking about. Now I make them for the family for any holiday. They are so simple with only 5 ingredients and come together quickly.   I also think they make the perfect holiday “snowball” cookie and they make their way on to our Christmas Cookie plate.

  • What to wear for Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving has always been a favorite holiday in my family. This year we will be having a very low key family filled Thanksgiving and remembering what we are grateful for in this life. I am sure I will be wearing something comfortable and casual… but dressing up is fun too! It is only two weeks away so here are some ideas of what to wear when gathering for the holiday.

  • Gluten Free Sugar Cookies (for cookie cutters)

    Every Christmas my family made sugar cookies. We had about 50 different cookie cutters, we each had our favorites (mine the dachshund!), and loads of sugar decorations. To me Christmas and sugar cookies go hand in hand. Since discovering that I have an intolerance to gluten we have tried many different mixes and recipes so we can still have our Christmas tradition… none of them produced the same delicious cookie we all loved. I set out to find, create and perfect a Sugar Cookie that was gluten free. I tried a ton of different recipes and created this one as a result. It may have taken me to Valentine’s Day…
