cookies and cups

Shelly Jaronsky is a Texan at heart, living in New Jersey. She blogs about her adventures as a mommy, wife, and baker on her website cookies and cups. Shelly loves pop culture, shopping, and sugar in equal measure and started her site in early 2009 as a place to share her messes and successes. There is no pretense to her cooking, and often refers back to church cookbooks and family recipes for inspiration.Shelly firmly believes that no one can frown while eating a cupcake, so she works hard making people smile, one cupcake at a time!
