Celebrate With Cookies >> 19 Favorite Cookie Decorating Designs

We always envy our friends who can whip a plate of delicious AND gorgeous cookies that somehow capture the essence of whatever party or event they are hosting. For Ashley's baby shower, Vicki managed to create darling intricately decorated baby carriage cookies and always has a plate of fabulous football field cookies at the entrance to her legendary college football viewing parties.

I always chocked up Vicki's baking and decorating talents to the “things her mother taught her” category. Much to my surprise, Vicki recently revealed her secret to me. She sprung the $40.00 to take Anne Yorks online Celebrate with Cookies – 19 Favorite Cookie Decorating Designs Craftsy class! Yep! I guess we now have no excuse to serve plain rather than decorated cookies! And it turns out Vicki not only watched Anne Yorks' class, she has been enrolling in Craftsy cooking decorating classes for years! According to Vicki, each class helps her practice and perfect her technique.

And while meatloaf is not typically part of their regular diet, Jessie had taken on the noble task of developing Bon Appétit’s Best Meatloaf. Not a turkey loaf, not a lentil loaf, a meatloaf. It doesn’t sound pretty. Go on, say it, “Meat. Loaf.” But a meatloaf like this one is a thing of beauty.

Here is not only the recipe but also a description of what went into developing their recipe for the best meatloaf ever. Continue Reading →
