Eggnog Sugar Cookies

I know I've said this before... but California has to be the best state ever. It's not even my home state - where I was born and raised. But it sure does feel like "home" now. Archie and I LOVE to explore, and one of our favorite ways is hiking. There are so many places to go hiking here. This past weekend we went hiking with our hiking buddies, Jeremiah...

The Great Cookie Swap 2011 – Gingersnap Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookies

A few weeks ago, on twitter, I saw that Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil was going to be hosting a cookie swap! It was such a fantastic idea that I had to join in.

Browned Butter Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies – Sugar High Fridays #68

I spoke way way too soon. About many things... 1. That the weather hadn't been over 90 degrees here all summer, and California weather was never hot. Well, we sure got our fair share of it this week. It got to 106 degrees on Tuesday, and Monday and Wednesday were equally as hot. Our new house doesn't have air conditioning, and when we walked in the house on Tuesday night...
