Life is flying by these days at an impressive rate. Just when I think I may be able to catch up, grasp the moment and wring everything possible out of it, I”m falling behind again, watching it all whiz on by.

Like the month of October. It seems like it was only yesterday that I …

Magic Cookie Bars grace just about every holiday table, desirable not only because they’re very quick and easy to assemble, but also because the blending of flavors is pretty darn fantastic.

It’s been one of those push-push-push yourself weeks. I decided to challenge myself by committing to a few more projects, but they all converged this week–along with my birthday–and I had to set some limits.

I grew up well after the era of the malt shoppe. I can’t say I’ve ever even seen one. We did have a sweet shoppe for a short while in town–a little bit of bliss on the corner of Water and Main–but they served ice cream and candy, if I recall correctly. No chocolate malts …

I hated missing Week 9 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies & Sweets. Truly loathed having to do it. But with Thanksgiving falling on the same day, there was far too much going on in the kitchen and far too little daylight to go around to document it. I chose to let it go …

Christmas is creeping ever so closer. Before you know it, it’ll be here and you’ll be declaring, “Where did the time go?” It’s tricky like that. First you’re complaining about decorations being up in the stores in August, then it’s here and you’re not at all prepared.

Yes, I’m late. Technically, it’s Week 7. And there will be a Week 7 post later this week. But I have a really good excuse.

No, the dog didn’t eat my homework. Instead, my town was hit by a freak October Nor’Easter that dumped nearly 2 feet of snow on us. With leaves still …

We’re now less than 2 months away from Christmas. Hard to believe, isn’t it? To take the sting out of that realization, here’s another cookie recipe for you. You can pretend it’s for Halloween or Thanksgiving instead. It’s okay. I won’t tell.

I’ll admit, I have a history of problems with oatmeal cookies. I …
