Their common connection? One talented baker (no, not me). But one who makes a great tasting cookie and whom I can always count on to dream about trips to Ikea with me over coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. So, obviously the coffee thing makes me feel like she’s one to be trusted. Plus she’s from the West Coast of our continent (West is BEST!). And it’s very possible I will be her in-law 20 years from now if my mini-baker keeps holding her son’s hand whenever she sees him.
It’s been a rough week, work-wise, home-wise. Some weeks just stink. My recent cake disaster didn’t help boost my confidence in the kitchen (But I did eat it, right? So my complaints need to be held to a minimum). I have something like 330+ other cake recipes that I could try so I need to suck it up and get over it. This I will do while eating chocolate covered pretzels from Trader Joe’s.
I thought you might be having a less-than-stellar week as well. Which leads me to sharing the work of my wildly talented, super-sweet Canadian-Nashvillian baking friend. She’s a modern baker – no vintage recipes in her repertoire (I don’t think so anyway) – but some things are too good not to share! Her artistry makes rough weeks just a bit better. Her cookies look and taste great (sorry Williams Sonoma, but she puts your fancy cookies to shame).
I would aspire to be this talented but I know it will never happen. I’m just not that kind of girl. But she is, and I’m proud to share her work with you.
All pics and cookies from Eat My Words. Check her out on Facebook (Eat My Words). Scroll through her photos. There are amazing cakes and cupcakes on there as well.
And order from her, for crying out loud!! You must know someone in the Nashville area that would appreciate amazing cookies. Order some for yourself, even. Good grief, let’s send her the amount of love her talent and tasty treats deserve.
