How about a virtual cookie exchange to kick off the weekend?
Since we all know I've yet to learn how to use my shiny sewing machine—I've had it for over a year. I like to think I've honed my cookie-baking skills instead (err, somewhat). Of course, I have been known to jump to conclusions by just mixing all the wet and dry ingredientses* before reading the instructions. Lesson learned: not all cookies are created equally (case in point). Despite my occasional lack of patience and attention to details, it's hard to royally mess up sweet concoctions that consist of butter and sugar. If anything, the holiday season is a great excuse to whip out your mixer and colorful sanding sugar. This weekend, why don't you throw on your apron and try one of these cookie recipes? *Anyone notice my snarky nod towards Teresa Giudice? I'll keep the Bravo references cumin.
