Cookie Butter Blossoms

Living in the UK has meant that when I’m in the US, I’m kind of like a kid in candy land.  “Ah, you can get butterscotch chips!  Hand them over!  What are those special edition Milky Ways?  I need some!”  If I was living here and able to regularly go to the grocery stores, I […]

Lemon Stuffed Oreo Crinkle Cookies

Sometimes I forget how cool my home state of Delaware is.  I’m home for a week with my family, getting a bit of relaxing time and all I want to do is go to the grocery store (although I’ll be sharing some photos from browsing my local shops.)  But I noticed that the limited edition […]

Modern Irish Food and Buttermilk Soda Bread

Pink Lemonade Crinkle Cookies (with a Pink Lemonade Glaze)

I came back to London armed with a cute little set of the Valentine’s Day cards that American children give out to their friends in school.  This is apparently a purely American concept – the reason I can’t find them here is that apparently in London, Valentine’s Day is simply a romantic holiday, rather than […]
