Pumpkin Spice Overload?

It seems like everything this fall is pumpkin spice flavored.  Pumpkin spice lattes, Oreos & M&Ms. Pancakes, soup, even BBQ sauce!  Isn’t enough enough already!?! NO WAY! Pumpkin is such a beautiful flavor.  Make is savory.  Make it sweet (actually, just make it sweet for me, thanks!)…it’s lovely in almost any form in this baker’s eyes!  I’ve been on a pumpkin kick this October and have been enjoying every minute of it!

Let’s Celebrate with Cookie Cakes!

I recently celebrated my 37th birthday (I know, I know…a girl is never supposed to tell her age.  But I just really don’t mind, since life just keeps getting better and better!), and my husband didn’t even have to ask me what I wanted, because the answer is the same every year….COOKIE CAKE!

I have always loved cookie cakes. Well, I have always loved cookies, but cookie cakes are something special.
