Hi! My name is Sarah. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the cookie world!
I'm a self taught home baker, student of the Instagram Cookie Video rabbit hole. I'm not a baking scientist, nor a blank cookie canvas artist - just someone who enjoys bringing a little sweetness to the world.
Originally from Minneapolis, MN, I currently live in a suburb of Madison, WI with my husband Kyle and two children Andrew & Elizabeth. My interest in baking has grown from a general enjoyment to an all around obsessive (and expensive) hobby.
I've always had an interest in baking, including birthday cakes for each of my two kids. But I hadn't decorated my first cookie until February 2019, for my son's 5th birthday. Everyone was so sweet in their complements, but the truth is, I never would have imagined myself taking orders and selling my decorated cookies after that first attempt, and it took me several months to pick up a rolling pin again. I can't quite be sure what enticed me back, but I forced my husband's family to endure my sugar cookies in the Summer of 2019, and then again a month later when we had a backyard barbecue with friends from our children's preschool. From this journey came my first paid order in September 2019 and I've been having a blast ever since!
When I'm not stressing out about whether you're going to love your cookies or if I've over-communicated in my long reply back to your order inquiry, I enjoy spending time with family & friends, using far too much sarcasm, watching obscene amounts of cookie decorating videos (and crime dramas) and pretending I'm witty & hilarious. *wink*
Truly though, thank you for checking out my website and social media pages. It means the world to us. As the saying goes, your support helps with the extra little things in my and my family's life... karate, swim, gymnastics, travel to see family and friends, and a nice chai latte now and then.
Welcome to my kitchen! This photo was taken by my friend, fellow mama and fabulous photographer Teresa of Family Tree Photography.
This is how I picture my fabulous life. It's my favorite picture of myself, taken March 2016, enjoying a kid free night out with my husband and friends.
The reality is so much better though, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Check out a few fun photos of my littles and I here.
