These seashore sandy beach cookies are kind of awesome, in my unbiased and humble opinion. I have mentioned missing the ocean quite a bit since moving to central Texas. Well, this weekend I finally traveled to the gulf coast. Everyone laughed when I said. “Wow, the water. It looks so…brown.”

Well, football season is almost over. It was a struggle keeping up with the home team considering they now play on the other side of the country from me. I refused to purchase the NFL package after wasting a pretty penny on the MLB package (I’m still waiting for the Red Sox to reimburse me, damn [...]Continue Reading →
Yes. I combined something delicate and French with a very gaudy and tacky (nostalgic and classic too, of course) US American candy. I created an oxymoron.
Alas, it’s my blog I do what I want.
Since Pop Rocks are the most overused ingredient for Independence Day recipes, and I also wanted [...]Continue Reading →
Because my mother is awesome, I tend to consider Mother’s Day months prior. This year, I went through the same series of hurdles when trying to decide what to give her.
I could buy her some nice slippers. She has an odd fetish for them, or something. I’m certain if I opened her closet several [...]Continue Reading →
It was only inevitable that at some point I create a baked good with a Star Wars theme. Let’s face it. Star Wars is to the internet as the Kardashians are to celebrity gossip magazines.

1 Fine Cookie is out-of-control busy.
With Halloween orders, catering, cooking, and blogging, I contemplate running away and joining El Menudo.

I’m certain I mentioned my mom several million times around Mother’s Day this year. I probably mentioned how awesome she is. I know, most people think their mom is awesome. But mine really is, even if she isn’t your mother.
That’s my mom. You know, the chick on the right. (I am in [...]Continue Reading →
I was contacted for Tatum and Steffen’s engagement party. Stephanie, a family friend, wanted to order something special and personal. She explained to me that the future bride loves balloons, pink, and Butterfinger.
First of all I love the fact that she likes balloons. Do you remember Jerky Boys? They sold [...]Continue Reading →
Okay, okay FINE! I will create something incredibly clichéd and obnoxious for the 4th of July. Yes, not only will it have red, white and blue, but I have successfully made it so that it explodes in your mouth. Like fireworks. This is totally in your face and over the top. Sort of like America.

Okay, so a beer cupcake sounds strange. I know, I know. I can just see it now, you people in your so-called forums. “Oh that sounds gross,” or, “I don’t know if that would be good.” Well, don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.
Let me just say I have a special friend who is possibly the pickiest eater I [...]Continue Reading →
