Is this really what I sound like???

Hi cookie fans - I'm so so so sorry for being so MIA this last past month. Thankfully it was actually crazy busy with the holidays and all that between baking, eating, baking a little more, entertaining family, baking AGAIN, eating a lot more, making my family bake, taking my final (yay!!!!), baking, eating buffets, Christmas mall runs, baking, traffic school, baking, radio spots, baking, podcast sots, four ugly sweater parties, two cookie exchanges, and three white elephant parties, somehow blogging fell a little behind. So sorry! AND to make it even worse, I had two live cookie interviews in one week that I so wanted to blog about but couldn't! They were pretty awesome though! One was for the Gourmet Club that's podcasted on the Union Tribune's website with host Robert Whitley and his regular co-hosts Caron Golden ( and Maureen Clancy ( It airs every Wednesday at 11 and they talk about anything and everything food! Totally my kind of show.

And the other was a hook up from my super rad friend Emily with getting the cookies on 101.5 KBG's morning show with Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw. The phones were ringing off the hook after this one. I swear I sound like a 6 year old though... :)

Office supplies, office furniture, office depot, office cookies!

There's another reason why I love San Diego - with this much sunshine, how can someone not be shiny and happy? Like my super friendly neighborhood Office Depot copy girl! I just made a new friend not only for all my copying and printing needs but apparantly she's also got a few baking tips and tricks up her sleeve too. Like this pineapple cookie recipe she sent me. I tried it and it was delicious only I used butter instead of shortening and I added a little orange zest as well. Moist but not cakey with awesome flavor! Unfortunately, my camera crapped out on me so I can't show them to you guys but I'm taking this recipe and tweaking it for the pina colada cookie!
