When I moved to South Korea and had to give up making cakes entirely and started making cookies for REAL and not just for kidding any more... I was still just a girl and her sugar. I had a Ziploc bag full of cookie cutters. And a baking sheet that could fit six cut-outs at a time.

At that time, this new wave of cookie decorating was really just beginning. And by "new wave," I mean -- cookies that were CRAZY adorable and still delicious at the same time.

I don't think it's a secret that I'm obsessed with my own chocolate sugar cookie recipe. I think I could make it blindfolded, using only chopsticks and a broken Lego. Except for the oven part. That would just be dangerous. And I may be a risk taker...but not with ovens. Or alligators.

But since people typically don't understand all the details and nuances that I've associated with that word throughout the entire history of my existence, it usually requires a follow up along the lines of, "I make cookies every day of my life."
