almond butter & jelly sandwich cookies

LR Sample Edit-4035

Sandwich cookies that look like little sandwiches, oh my!!

These cookies just might be the cutest baked goods I’ve ever made [that’s right, I’m not afraid to (not-so) humble-brag]. And so, in my excitement (and also good fortune for having such great natural light at the time of this photo shoot), I took a boatload of pictures.

In other words: Prepare yourselves.

toasted coconut & salted caramel rugelach

LR Sample Edit-3641

Question: Have you ever logged onto Facebook, skimmed through your News Feed, and then proceeded to spend the next 15-20 minutes looking at/ through your own page? (I’m talking pictures, old posts, the works.)

Welp, that sounded overly narcissistic.

For those of you who answered “no,” well, I guess I already lost ya. I guess you’re also a million times better at using your time productively. For those of you who answered “yes”… wait, did anyone else answer yes? Probably not – I’m just a weirdo, sometimes. Don’t mind me.

brown sugar snickerdoodles


I didn’t think it would be this long before I blogged again.

I guess I got caught up in first semester chaos – exploring the city, adjusting to classes, working on papers, rehearsing presentations, fighting the dreaded Freshman Fifteen.

Despite my intentions to continue TMB while away at school, blogging definitely took a backseat to everything else going on in my life.

chocolate shortbread fingers


Over the past five or so months, I have learned an abundance about blogging.  Food blogging, in particular.  Shall I share a brief list with you?  Why not!

1.) As a new blogger, the majority of your readers are friends or family.  Really, this is not all that surprising.

2.) Blogging is addicting.  Fact.

3.) Your computer hard-drive becomes overloaded with pictures.

4.) The absurd quantity of pictures seems even more absurd when you consider the fact that the pictures are of food . . . and only food.

5.) Speaking of pictures, bigger isn’t always better.  I doubt you want to spend an hour waiting for all the pictures on a single blog post to load.  I sure don’t!

6.) Taste Spotting is very critical when accepting submissions. 

7.) Dessert Stalking is not. 

8.) Post titles should be straight-forward (unlike this list is turning out to be).

9.) There’s a lot of butter involved.  It’s dangerous.

10.) Exercise is recommended.
