Apple Spice Cookies

March 27, 2012

When I went on my apple picking adventure to Indiana back in October I had a feeling once I was hauling my apples back to the car that I had over picked. But it didn’t really hit home until I loaded my apples in the refrigerator and they completely filled both my crisper bins.  For […]

Chewy Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

January 20, 2012

For most of the winter thus far here in Chicago temperatures have been balmy and mild.  Christmas came and went with barely so much as a dusting of snow.  Brown Christmas indeed.  I was starting to naively believe that we’d hit spring by February.  But then last week we finally got a little over two […]

Candy Cane Biscotti

December 15, 2011

For a long time I hated peppermint.  It makes me feel like a bit of a scrooge to say so this time of year given the iconic nature of candy canes and my especially unabashed love of Christmas.  As a kid I’d never turn down cherry flavored candy canes, but the mint ones, for me, […]

Candy Cane Blossoms for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

December 12, 2011

The sugar high continues here on The Pink Apron with the reveal of our recipes for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  I know I thoroughly enjoyed participating because I definitely enjoy baking for others much more than for myself and I also really, really enjoy receiving packages.  Getting my boxes reminded me very much […]

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Layered Biscotti

December 6, 2011

Last year it felt like my job was conspiring to keep me from enjoying the holidays. The time I so desperately wanted to use for shopping and baking was sucked into a vortex of powerpoint, taking my holiday cheer with it.  So this year, when faced with a free Saturday and a kitchen stocked with […]

Holiday Baking

December 1, 2011

It feels a little too early to be posting about holiday baking.  It’s only December 1.  I still have leftover turkey in the freezer from Thanksgiving waiting to be morphed into a new meal next week.  And yet, our packages for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap need to be in the mail no later […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Drop Cookies

October 31, 2011

I must admit that I am one of those girls who takes quite awhile to deem a new place ‘home.’ I’ve been in my new apartment a month now. My boxes are almost entirely unpacked, the pictures hung, and the mail forwarded. Yet, it still feels a bit odd. I occasionally still get off the […]

Chai-Spiced Peach Oatmeal Cookies

October 3, 2011

If there is one thing (well, not true, there are probably many, many things) I dislike, it’s moving.  Sure it was fun in college, with the help of my parents to organize, pack, unpack, reorganize, and repack things, but when you’re a girl on your own it is decidedly NOT a fun endeavor.  Because of […]

Compost Cookies

May 17, 2011

Despite the rainy and unforgiving weather here in Chicago, our contribution to the National Food Blogger Bake Sale to benefit Share our Strength was successful.  Over $1,000 was raised and 30 people (bloggers and non-bloggers) volunteered to make it happen.   (I’m including links for the other bloggers that came in case you want to […]
