Happy Hour: When in Doubt, Cookies

Jun 25, 2021

One of my a-number one hostess tricks is cookies.  I make a batch of cookie dough, freeze it, and then bake a few when people come over.  They’re also a great option for potlucks and backyard barbecues.  Because everyone from kids to adults loves a good cookie.

These Gooey Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are the kind of cookie where you’re texting the recipe to people as they eat their third one.

A chewy molasses cookie is also a nice option.  And if it’s an event with kids, making sugar cookies and bringing along multiple cookie cutters and toppings will keep them busy for a bit.  Or if you’re baking in the moment, these decadent s’mores cookies are really fun.

In the summer, my fashion formula is dresses that look more expensive than their tag price, that can be dressed up or down.  This floral dress from Old Navy is such a dress.

It’s so comfortable.  I wash it in the machine.  And it’s so flattering.  They also offer it in green, blue, and black — all of which are selling out.

Whether you style it with a block heel sandal and earrings or a cute sneaker and denim jacket, this dress just works.

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.
