Also, I would say that color is a big part of how I decorate. A lot of times I find myself creating designs to fit colors I've already chosen. Because I LOVE deep, dark, saturated colors. And bright colors. And contrasting colors. And sometimes, I really like soft, muted colors too.
Your favorite cookie design and why?
I really like long and thin rectangle cookies. Especially the cookies that have multiple frames or tiles. They are kind of more work to make, but I just LOVE the idea. Now I'm sad that I haven't made any in a while. That's it. I'm totally going to make more of them this winter. And hopefully have enough patience to make them all smooth and pretty this time.

What are your 3 Favorite Cookie Decorating Tools?
Toothpicks, toothpicks, toothpicks! Ha ha ha, I'm only kind of kidding. I really do use toothpicks for EVERYTHING. I also just figured out this great thing a few months ago....its called a dish towel. WHY has everyone been keeping this secret from me? I get a dish towel just a little wet and leave it next to me while decorating cookies. That way I can wipe my tips off between cookies, or put toothpicks on it, or wipe up that big glob of icing that came out the top because I filled the piping bag too full. Ooh, and the other thing I love is a set of colored plastic cups that I purchased for my children. (And then I stole them back. And had to buy them another set.) They are the perfect size to set my piping bags in while decorating. And since they are all different colors, I don't get my icing bags mixed up.

It is a movie night: Comedy, Drama or Romance?
Oh --comedy, hands down. I love to laugh and I like to be happy. I can't watch dramas because they always make me so nervous. I mean, what if things DON'T turn out all right in the end? What then? I'll tell you what happens -- I have to watch a comedy after that. And I still hide my face when people kiss in a movie, so romantic movies are out.

Coffee or Tea?
Neither one, actually. I like to drink ice water. And then I eat the ice. And someday it will ruin my teeth and I will regret it. But until that day comes....I refuse to change. :)

What's your favorite color combination?
I like dark red mixed with just about any other color. I call it "crimson" because it makes me feel trendy to use color names like that. I especially like crimson and white and silver. Hmmm. But I also really like navy and white and light yellow. (Anyone know a trendy name for light yellow?)

Did you pick a name for your new addition to the family?
Yes. I think so. I'm pretty sure. Mostly. Maybe not. Okay, actually, we're still working on it. I was so certain with my first two children...but this little girl seems so elusive. What if I pick the wrong name and she grows up hating me because she SHOULD have been a Julia and I named her Lucy? You can't be too careful. This is her whole future we're talking about here.
I love living in this country though. I have gorgeous green rice paddies outside my window in the spring and summer seasons. Walking is a way of life here, not just something you do if you run out of gas. Every restaurant I go to is a culinary adventure. And I'm forced to try new things ALL THE TIME. Like....cookies. I used to make cakes almost exclusively. And then I moved to Korea and my oven is insanely tiny. So I started making cookies. Where would I be without Korea?
