It’s kind of funny starting a blog, knowing that there aren’t any readers yet. So to whom do I write? (and do I need to use perfect grammar, or not?!) I guess I write to all of those who will find us along the way. I’m so glad you found us, and I hope that you’ll enjoy reading my posts and be inspired to try some fun new things in the kitchen.
I guess a little “About Me” might be nice. My name is Karen, and my husband Mike and I run a little online cookie supply shop called Karen’s Cookies. I love the art of the decorated cookie, and most of my posts will revolve around that subject. As much as I adore decorated cookies, I also thoroughly enjoy many other types of baking, so you will see posts on other subjects sprinkled in. I’m sure that drop cookies, pies, pastries, cakes, breads and other goodies will find their way onto the blog occasionally. (Oh, and since I have a store, and because I can, I’m sure that giveaways will abound!)
I started a blog several years ago when we opened our shop. My pictures were horrible. Beyond horrible. UG-LY. I would show you one, but they have long been deleted and (hopefully) forgotten. One of my favorite things about blog hopping is the beautiful photography, and my own blog certainly wasn’t delivering. So I kind of gave up, while still wishing I could create a fun place to share my kitchen adventures. Recently Mike and I got to talking about giving it another try. He taught me what he knows about macro and aperture and shutter speed, and we’ve invested in some decent lights for the kitchen. So far the results have been fun and exciting! Hopefully I can keep all the camera settings straight and continue to improve my skills with time.
Thanks again for stopping by! Feel free to comment, make suggestions, or just say hi. I’d love to hear from you!
