Hi, my name is Amber and I live in Sacramento, California.  I am a blogger who predominantly shares recipes inspired by entertainment and creates beauty recipes using food grade ingredients. I am also a guitar hobbyist of 15 years.
As a huge fan of anime, video games and cartoons, my creative inspiration as a professional cook and guitar aficionado are derived from these sources of entertainment.  I secretly want to become a voice actor for animation + video games

Why did you start a blog?  

I started blogging while recovering from a restaurant related injury. I wanted a creative outlet relevant to food. The rest is history!

Autumn Spice Shortbread Cookies:

Shortbread is one of the simplest of cookie recipes, so today I am sharing a yummy cookie perfect for fall!

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup unsalted butter (cold)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

In a food processor, combine all ingredients until a firm dough ball forms.

Let dough rest in fridge for about 30 minutes.

Portion cookie dough onto a parchment lined sheet tray.

Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes.

Dust with powdered sugar (optional).

Your cookies will be flaky thanks to incorporating cold butter, and pumpkin pie spices lends your home the aroma of fall!

I hope you enjoy this simple recipe! Thank you, Leanna for having me today!
