Ever had Lofthouse Sugar Cookies? Yeah, me too. Yum 🙂 I’ve been making sugar cookies for several years now, and I have NEVER been able to make a batch so soft and yummy as the ones I made last weekend. [See photos below for a good drooling] 😉 The cookies themselves are NOT very sugary. They are soft, and have a slight sweetness to them. However, then add the frosting on top, and you have a sensationally sugary burst of… Read more »

Beating the Heat -- Courtesy Upsplash

Here we are with Foodie Friday tailored to the Beating the Heat Summer Series here at My Life In Snippets. Eating the right foods in the summer is vital to staying cool. During the late fall and winter time, my stomach frequently longs for comfort foods like baked potatoes, soups and heavy meals. However, in the summer time, it’s better to keep meals light and on the cool side. I posted in a prior piece that during the summer you… Read more »

Completed Cupcakes

  This summer, I have the honor of working with and advising a group of IT Interns (in the same place as I was last summer).

Image of Espresso Caramel Ice Cream Cake

Two weeks ago was my other half’s birthday. His love of coffee, espresso and all things caffeine inspired me to search for an ice cream cake recipe last summer for his last birthday. The cake was such a hit he asked for it again this year. Of course, after making something once, you typically find some adjustments that work better for you! I’d like to thank Martha Stewart’s site for the original recipe for this cake – although I have… Read more »
