“Chubby Hubby” Cookies, Freshly Baked And No Freezer Required

“Chubby Hubby” Cookies, Freshly Baked And No Freezer Required post image

We all like to enjoy ice cream in our household; however, I would probably call my hubby more of a “connoisseur” of it. You see, I'm pretty much a creature of habit when I enjoy this delicious treat of the cold and creamy kind, as I'm a “Rocky Road” or "coffee-flavored, slow-churned-lower-fat-variety" kind of gal, not really deviating much from that flavor profile or style when I'm shopping for ice cream for myself. My husband on the other hand, loves to try out various flavors and ... {more please!}

Two years can go by in an blinding flash. When my husband and I embarked upon this “labor of love” that is The Cozy Apron, we had zero expectations; after all, we had no clue as to what it meant to have blog, and how having one can truly change your life when you fall head over heals in love with the process of producing content for it week after week. When we began, all we really hoped to do was share a few recipes here ... {more please!}

I feel like I've only just gotten used to writing “2013” in the blank line next to the word “date” on any given paper requiring one. Where has the year gone? I have a mixed bag of emotions on this, as on one hand, I look at the upcoming year as a completely blank slate, ready and willing to receive me and whatever new growth will accompany; yet on the other hand, if I'm to be honest, I feel like I haven't even begun to scratch ... {more please!}

My, oh my, how time flies! I can hardly believe I'm sitting here writing a post for the blog's one-year anniversary, already! It seems like just a few weeks ago that my hubs and I were saying, “Wow, it's been 4 months since we've started the blog...it's been 6 months...8 months…”. Funny how life seems to move at light speed when you're going from blog post to blog post. I'd really love to share with you what a pleasure it has been this past year for ... {more please!}

A Cozy Holiday: “Rudolph’s Favorite” vs. “Santa’s Favorite” Christmas Cookies, To Each Their Own

A Cozy Holiday: “Rudolph’s Favorite” vs. “Santa’s Favorite” Christmas Cookies, To Each Their Own post image

Now, I'm not criticizing, but by the looks of Santa, it seems that he's definitely eaten his share of Christmas cookies over the years. And I'm certainly not one to pick on Santa, of course, but I have the feeling that he's been just a wee bit naughty himself, and hasn't shared as many cookies with his faithful reindeer friends as he could've. Last I saw those precious reindeer—those hard-working, sleigh-pulling, North Pole-weather-enduring lil' fellas—they frankly looked a touch peeked to me, a little on the ... {more please!}
