What’s for Dinner: February 2015 Meal Plan

We’re back with another meal plan! Can you believe that 2015 is already 1/12th over? I’m still writing 2014 everywhere, and it’s February. At least I got my Christmas decorations down in a timely fashion this year. One year, I actually contemplated just taking the ornaments off the tree and decorating it for Valentine’s Day, […]

Grandma’s Drop Sugar Cookies

Growing up, it was rare to find store bought cookies in our house. It was even more rare to find them at Grandma’s house. Cake, cookies, pies… whatever treats she had on hand were homemade. Cherry pie, frosted brownies, and these drop sugar cookies are some of her staple treats. Grandmas are the best, aren’t they? […]

Orange Sesame Beef

Confession time: we order Chinese food at least every other week. We’d probably order it every week, but we always have lots of leftovers. I know, I know. I’m a food blogger. Why order take out when I can whip something up myself? But truth be told, I just haven’t been able to replicate some […]

White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Snaps: Home Cooked Love from Pennsylvania

Christmas is always bittersweet. I love being able spend time with our families in Pennsylvania and Alabama, as well as our adoptive family of friends in Virginia. But it feels like we just get to town when we have to leave again. I hate leaving my family. But I can’t complain too much. Even though […]

Our Favorite Rolled Sugar Cookies Recipe

When my sister and I were little, we used to look forward to Christmas cookie day. A few weeks before Christmas, we’d make rolled sugar cookies with our mom and grandma. I used to love cutting out the shapes and decorating the cookies with colored sprinkles. We’d make several dozen – and believe me, everyone […]

Fruity Pebbles Cookies

That’s right. Cookies with Fruity Pebbles in them. If you love this breakfast cereal, you’re going to love these cookies. Now I’m not a fan of fruity pebbles. In fact, I’m not sure if any of us Boyer ladies are a fan of them. But recently a coworker posted these on my wall on Facebook begging […]

The Best Gingerbread Recipe Ever #fbcookieswap

When I was a kid, my aunt made gingerbread one year, and thus began my obsession. My mother is affectionately known as the “cookie lady” in our neighborhood because she makes these huge delicious cookie platters to give away around the holidays, but she never made gingerbread. She probably skipped it because she already made […]
