Matcha Shortbread

This is the first thing I have baked in a long time. After deciding to revisit this blog with Kimmy I decided that I needed to drag my butt back into the kitchen and bake something. Part of me has become afraid of baking. After deciding to not pursue it as a career anymore, part of me fears that if I start baking again, maybe I will regret my decision to stop professionally. Of course the other part of me says that is ridiculous. Lately I have been itching to create things again and this was a feeling that had completely stopped when I was baking as a career.

Lately my life has been all spreadsheets and Netflix so creating these Matcha Shortbread cookies was a much needed escape. I love Matcha. Its earthiness pairs well with sweet treats. And I love how it makes everything green!

Hello fellow readers!

I'm sure you know from the previous post (from Kaitlin) that this blog is going to represent our journey through life and be a collection of our interests and activities both together and apart. I thought it'd be fitting that I also spend a little blerb introducing myself (Kimmy) and what I hope this blog will be.

First I thought I'd do that by showing you a little bit more about us:
 I'm happy and extremely lucky to say that we've gone through many many years of friendship. During those years we've always noticed that the activities that we find cathartic have always been similar - using our minds and working with our hands to form something, to create something (crafts, food, and more food). We also really really like cats (and most other furry animals).

So on this blog you'll find a conglomerate of posts regarding life, crafts, food, and most probably cats.

With that being said, I'm excited to see how this blog will grow. Be ready, readers!

An Update and Moving Forward


I wanted to give an update on the future of this blog. I am excited to announce that this blog and all its content will no longer be a solo venture. Instead it will be the combined work of myself (Kaitlin) and my best frand Kimmy.

Kimmy and I have always shared a combined interested in cooking, crafting, blogging, and just making thangs in general. We got to talking one night about starting up one of our old blogs. In usual blogger fashion we could not remember our old usernames/e-mails, so I recommended we use this one. I feel like the name and concept behind this blog resonates with what Kimmy and I hope to create on here. This blog is a simple space among all the spaces floating around in the interwebs where Kimmy and I will share with you (our lovely readers) the things we enjoy to create.
