I’m lucky to have two things in life that I’m very passionate about: My school and my baking. Sometimes, those two intersect, like when it was my classroom’s turn to make Friday breakfast this week.

Here we have chocolate cheesecake flavor, as well as cake batter and gluten-free vanilla, with various toppings.

Question for the audience: Do donuts count as a love language?

There are many things to be said for the beauty of simplicity. Something about, say, your classic snickerdoodle and the subtle way that those two foundational flavors work so well together.

HOWEVER, there is just as much to be said about the opposite. Sometimes, simplicity should be shelved. Such is the case with these caramel pretzel M&M cookies, which have been a favorite of mine (and others) for several years. The name itself is a mouthful, what’s not to love?

Chaotic? Yes.
One-of-a-kind? Also yes.

In the background you may also notice some very sensible chocolate chip cookies. Just so y’all know that I haven’t completely lost my marbles.

💐 April showers bring May flowers! 💐

Or…. Treats that resemble flowers, at least.

Good morning, everyone. It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? While I am very lucky to say that I love my non-baking career, I must also be candid and admit that it has occupied most of my free time and energy. Nobody ever said that teaching would be easy, so I digress. 🤷🏻‍♂️

✨ HOWEVER ✨, as I transition towards a less busy time of year, I’ve set an intention to update this page more. It’s not that I haven’t been baking. Belieeeeve you me, I’ve been baking. In fact, I’m very excited to share with you the cupcake recipes I’ve tried this season. So, back to the good stuff.

Here are some lemon poppyseed cupcakes and GF lemon cookies with either blueberry or cheesecake buttercream. I made these about two weeks ago by now. This blueberry buttercream was absolutely GORGEOUS in person, y’all, and delicious to boot. 💙🥰

More to come. Keep in touch?

Fresh out of the lab this week is my new amaretto sour cookie for all of you high-flyin’ fancy-pantsin’ Great-Gatsbyin’ types. Or…heck, maybe you just really like the notes of rich almond and tart citrus-cherry like I do! Either way, this one is a must-try.

One aspect of baking I love is the emphasis on trying something new. Whether it be methods, flavors, or colors, the possibilities are endless. In that same spirit, I'd like you all to meet my vegan double chocolate chunk cookies.

Stay tuned for two brand new vegan flavors, coming this Friday.

🥂🍋🍓NOW OFFERING SPRING FLAVORS🍓🍋🥂

Strawberry lemonade at the fair.
Mimosas at brunch.
A scoop of ice cream after a hike.
A glass of champagne when you and your own had ample reason to celebrate.

Imagine any or all of those flavors, except on a light, soft sugar cookie.

I invite you to try out my Desserts and Beverages Bundles. Both the Desserts (Neapolitan/Blueberries + Cream) and Beverages (Mimosa + Strawberry Lemonade) Bundle contain 2 dozen cookies for $22. I've put these four flavors together in particular because they are, in my opinion, the MUST-TRY flavors of my spring season.

I am also offering each flavor listed below a la carte for $14 per dozen, or 2 dozen (choice of flavor) for a discounted price of $24.

Those of you who are kind enough to place orders over $50 will also receive a FREE half dozen cookies of your choosing (pick any from this menu or classic chocolate chip)

I am able to ship to the continental US for a flat rate of $11 per 4 dozen cookies.

FREE DELIVERY TO THE GREATER DENVER AREA!

I will always relish the opportunity to return to my roots. In the beginning, there was only chocolate chip. This same recipe has been recreated, tweaked, tailored, or faithfully reproduced more times for more people than I’d ever like to be tasked with counting.

There’s just something about the classics. Ya can’t quit em.

Of course, this time around, I also had to make a dependable variant (mint chocolate), and try a new experimental recipe while I was at it (maple pancake cookies, y’all stay tuned).

Tonight was a night I gave to nostalgia. Here’s to one decade down, and to several more to come, friends.

💜💛🧡 The warmth has returned, friends, and so have I! I wish to ring in a well-earned spring with flavors that call to mind some of your favorite ways to stay cool. Meet my initial offerings for the seasons of sun. In clockwise order beginning at the top, we have:

- Strawberry Lemonade
- Blueberries and Cream
- Champagne (best enjoyed while celebrating)
- Neapolitan (My personal favorite)
- Mimosa (Bottomless, of course)
- Blueberry Lemon

Stay tuned for my first long-awaited Spring bundle dropping next week!

As always, cookies can be ordered a la carte by the dozen for those that want to get in on this now.

Brighter days are coming, friends. 💜💛🧡

Ok friends, I think my newest addition to the team might be a little shy. However, with a soft cookie base, hand-candied almonds and fresh toasted coconut, I’m sure they’ll fit right in. I made these with very little but togetherness and new horizons in mind. Their name embodies that same sweet spirit.

Everyone say hello to another original labor of love, the Turtledove. 🥺

New year, old traditions.

On my final night of 2020, I decided to make the two recipes that started it all as a treat for my coworkers. Reflecting on this year is.... an odd sensation, and I’m sure I’m not alone in this. By virtue of that, however, I’m equally sure I’m not the only one that sees a better way for all of us.

2021 will see bold new recipes, assortments to rival my popular Winter 2020 Bundle, a number of Huggernaut-style fundraisers for all manner of worthy causes, and a heaping tablespoon of light-heartedness.

I’d be honored if you’d join me.

No more tears today, friends. Let us take today to smile and recognize the fact that we are here. That has to count for something. 💜

Here it is, folks. The Winter Bundle in all its delectable diversity. Seeing the year’s finale of my craft after these nightmarish 12 months is... powerful.

Some may scoff at a 30-year-old getting choked up while packaging cookies, but I say let them. My friends, we have NOT fought as hard as we have this year to be laughed off the stage.

This is how I love. May you be as unashamed of your own beautiful methods as I am, friend.

Packing another big order tonight, and wanted to take the time to remind the world that this is, was, and always will be an act of love.

🥳Hello world!🤩
For the FIRST-EVER post on my page, I'd like to show off what recipes I've perfected while holed away for the Winter. Introducing, for my debut, Huggernaut Baking's Winter Bundle:

- Gingerdoodle cookies finished with handmade ginger-infused sugar or spiced icing
- Hot cocoa cookies with a double chocolate drizzle and crushed peppermint (also available without peppermint)
- Apple-cinnamon PB&J Delights made with hand-ground cinnamon

From now until Friday (12/18/2020), a dozen of each of these unique treats (plus a dozen of classic chocolate chip) can be YOURS for $28. That's 48 handmade cookies for under $30! Half-orders are also available for $16.

Surprise a loved one! Set a new cookie standard for your break room potluck. Or, equally as important, treat YOURSELF. We all deserve it after this year.

With that being said, it's nice to meet all of you. I hope you and all my other new friends decide to stick around a while and join me on my adventure a decade in the making.
....Or, shall I say, in the BAKING.

Brace yourselves, friends. There will be puns.
