Because my mother is awesome, I tend to consider Motherâ€™s Day months prior. This year, I went through the same series of hurdles when trying to decide what to give her.
I could buy her some nice slippers. She has an odd fetish for them, or something. Iâ€™m certain if I opened her closet several […]Continue Reading →
It was only inevitable that at some point I create a baked good with a Star Wars theme. Letâ€™s face it. Star Wars is to the internet as the KardashiansÂ are to celebrity gossip magazines. Or the Yankees are to baseball. Tim Tebow is to ESPN coverage.Â Politicians are to adulterous affairs. Frantic women to DVRâ€™ing […]Continue Reading →
1 FineÂ Cookie is out-of-control busy.
WithÂ Halloween orders,Â catering, cooking, and blogging, I contemplate running away and joining El Menudo.
That kid has some major cojones hitting on an older woman. Perhaps EL MenudoÂ started the whole cougar thing. By the way, someone ( who happens to be older than me!) said that I am practically […]Continue Reading →
I’m certain I mentioned my mom several million times around Mother’s Day this year. I probably mentioned how awesome she is. I know, most people think their mom is awesome. But mine really is, even if she isn’t your mother.
That’sÂ my mom. You know, the chick on the right. (I amÂ in […]Continue Reading →
I was contactedÂ for Tatum and Steffen’s engagement party. Stephanie, a family friend, wanted to order something special and personal. She explained to me that the future bride loves balloons, pink, and Butterfinger.
First of all I love theÂ fact thatÂ sheÂ likes balloons. Do you remember Jerky Boys? TheyÂ sold […]Continue Reading →
Okay, okay FINE! I will create something incredibly clichÃ©d and obnoxious for the 4th of July. Yes, not only will it have red, white and blue, but I have successfully made it so that it explodes in your mouth. Like fireworks. This is totally in your face and over the top. Sort of like America.

Okay, soÂ a beer cupcakeÂ sounds strange. I know, I know.Â I can just see it now, you people in your so-called forums. “Oh that sounds gross,” or, “I don’t know if that would be good.” Well, don’t knock itÂ ’til you’ve tried it.
Let me just say I haveÂ a special friend who is possibly the pickiest eater I […]Continue Reading →
Father’s day is just around the corner, so you best be deciding on what to do for him before he writes you out of his will. Earlier in the week, I postedÂ a tutorial on how to make golf ball cake pops, made out of beer and bacon cake with frosting.
Â Â Â Â Â Â If you are just joining me now, last week was my birthday. Don’t worry, I’m not here to make a big deal out of it. I am not one of those people spend an entire month celebrating their bday. Um, a week is too much already. It is calledÂ birthDAY-Â notÂ birthMONTHÂ or birthWEEK, […]Continue Reading →
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Moms are so kick ass. For real. Not that I have to tell you that. I know some very kind and generous people out there, but nobody tops my mom. Literally, the most selfless person I know. She would give away everything sheÂ owned toÂ me and my siblingsÂ if we […]Continue Reading →
