I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Valentine's Day Cookies

There's nothing like fresh, from scratch sugar cookies made almost entirely by your two and four year olds cooling on the counter to remind you of how full of love your heart can be.

Super proud Mama moment:  the kids suggested putting orange and lemon in the cookies.  We added 1/2 T of each zest and 1/2 t of each juice in the butter and sugar, as recommended in one of the variations on sugar cookies in Brilliant.

The kids measured, mixed, rolled, cut and decorated the cookies.  Look how beautiful!  And they taste really delicious.  Talk about Roots and Zest!!


  1. Beautiful! Happy Valentine's Day, sweet Corbetts!

  2. They look delicious! My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures!

  3. We started adding cinnamon and nutmeg to our sugar cookies, they look a bit browner when they come out but then we slather then in icing so it doesn't matter.

    You'll have renowned chefs on your hands in no day if they keep playing with recipes.

  4. Those are so cute and sound delicious.
