These seashore sandy beach cookies are kind of awesome, in my unbiased andÂ humble opinion. I have mentioned missing the ocean quite a bitÂ since moving to central Texas. Well, this weekend I finally traveled to the gulf coast. Everyone laughed when I said. “Wow, the water. It looks so…brown.”

I made these sea glass candies, you see. Probably because I miss the ocean, you see.
I moved from Boston to Austin about a year ago, and the one thing I miss the most about home is the beach. There’s plenty of lakes, rivers and swimming pools here. Just no beach. No Cape, Vineyard or […]Continue Reading →
I’m pretty pumped to announce that 1 Fine Cookie now has a YouTubeÂ channel. That’s right. I will be gifting (polluting) the inter-webs with even more glorious cooking videos!
Some will re-visit my classic evil concoctions, while others will accompany fresh, (and so clean, clean) nueva posts.
This was a huge learning […]Continue Reading →
Whenever I get a rare second to think (millisecondÂ is more accurate), I think to myself how much my life has changed since I became a food blogger and freelancer food writer/photographer.

My friend JillyÂ loves to cook. She posts her food photos on Facebook and such. Usually, when people do this I am like, “NobodyÂ cares about your hot dog, fella,” but Jilly’s posts make me want to stop by her houseÂ Ã la Steve Urkel style.
Come running in uninvited, trip over the rug and […]Continue Reading →
Justin contacted a few months ago. He asked, “You ever make, “Muppets” cookies?”
No. But I have been waiting for someone to request the Muppets. Or Pretty much anything Jim Henson produced.
Only the most legendary children’s show of all time. Nix that. Legendary show produced FOR children, yet COMPLETELY appropriate for adults to […]Continue Reading →
I always say it’s hectic around here at 1 Fine Cookie, so it’s no shocker that when you toss in Â moving across country, a massive influx of orders, new projects (more about that later), and a new home with no furniture, and a doggy with multiple complications from a surgery, I’m just about ready to […]Continue Reading →
Oh, you think I only stuff cake into strawberries? Although the cupcake-stuffed strawberry is my most popular recipe creation since I started baking, I like to switch it up from time to time.
Think about it. Chocolate cookies, whipped cream, and strawberries. All dipped in white (or milk or dark if you prefer) chocolate. […]Continue Reading →
