Poppy Seed Thumbprints

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been super-busy at work, and blogging has fallen by the wayside.  But baking and crafting haven’t!  This coming week, I plan to post a pattern I created for a basic, cozy cowl, knit in the round.  In the meantime, please enjoy this simple, hearty cookie recipe, perfect for […]

Raspberry Jam Cookies

For those of you who envy my baking-filled, knittastic lifestyle, I have a guilty admission for you: I sometimes fall down on the job.  I bet you are absolutely shocked.  The plague that I complained about a couple of posts ago caught up with me even more, and I didn’t bake what I had planned […]

When I was despairing of the rate at which I was going through Kashi Oatmeal Dark Chocolate cookies – those things aren’t cheap! – I felt inspired to try to bake some of my own.  Recipes I found searching online were complex and required more ingredients than I felt like dealing with.  Anyway, an exact […]
