    Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies

    I can’t pinpoint exactly when my family sugar cookie tradition began. I have no idea where we even got the original recipe. I can’t begin to list all the ways my mom and I have tweaked the recipe (more like trial by [lots of] error). But, what I can tell you is that for at least the last decade, we’ve been making (and perfecting) this sugar cookie. When I was baking this year’s batch, I stopped and realized that the condition of the written recipe is truly amazing.

    Utah, underrated.

    A best friend of mine moved out to Salt Lake City, Utah about 2 years ago. She had just married to her childhood neighbor (yes, like in the movies), who is a fighter pilot and stationed in SLC. Between deployment and weapons school, she’s spent quite a bit of time alone since she’s moved there. We’d been trying to get something planned, but you know how that goes.. Hello, excuses: #work #time #money #life.. But, I knew I needed to just book the flight and get out there. Whenever I mentioned I was going to Utah, I was shocked with how many people asked, “Utah?? What? Why?!” Maybe it’s my…
