Sometimes, you just feel like making cookies from scratch. And you have cookie cutters to represent the states you live in. And so you make state-shaped cookies from scratch. What? I tried a new recipe - the hubs didn't love it, but I did! Whenever you are rolling out dough and using cookie cutters, you… Continue reading State Cookies + Archie Griffin

Columbus Adventures, Life As I Know It

Weekend in Review

This was one of those weekends that managed to strike JUST the right balance of fun, productivity, and relaxation. They are rare, but OH how I love them. Pre-weekend, I presented at a small conference on Friday here in Columbus. Lots of schools from across the state were represented, and we ended the day in… Continue reading Weekend in Review

Peanut Butter Blossoms

Senior year of college, our suite-mate Sam made THE most killer peanut butter blossom cookies (Sam, give a shout out if you're reading this). She was kind enough to share her recipe with us, and from time to time I love to pull out this classic cookie favorite. Please enjoy! Ingredients: 1 3/4 c. flour… Continue reading Peanut Butter Blossoms
