One of my many, many Target shopping binges inspired these cookies. After Christmas, I’d grabbed three packages of Winter Oreo cookies because they were on clearance. I’m not really sure why, although I do love Oreos, because I try not to keep prepackaged sweets in the house. We have enough homemade treats at any given […]Read More Red Velvet Oreo Cookies

Birdcage Bakeshop has been keeping me on my […]Read More Citrus Olive Oil Cake with Strawberry Rose Compote

Yesterday my baking company, Birdcage Bakeshop, participated in the Artisan’s Market held monthly at Williams Sonoma. I know. (Squeeeeee!) Navigating the world as a new business owner is exciting. And terrifying. Luckily, the sampling went well and I fielded lots of questions on what to do with the granola I was selling. “Funny you should ask. […]Read More Baked Stonefruit with Granola
