Welcome, I’m Danielle!
Welcome to my website, a labor of love, filled with hundreds of cheesecake varieties, the craziest cookies ever and the most incredible weeknight dinners! Basically, we have something for everyone!
I am the baker, cook, decorator and photographer behind the scenes at Hugs & Cookies xoxo!
This love of baking and cooking all started the day my husband and I returned from our honeymoon back in 2002. It was our first time living together in a new apartment with our very own kitchen! I planned a dinner and dessert that night and had so much fun preparing it all. My husband was definitely “wowed!” and it was the beginning of a wonderful food-related journey (and marriage, too! ❤️).
As fate would have it, my husband is also a foodie and truly adores every dinner I create! What a pleasure it is to cook for someone who appreciates the entire process. I also have 2 delicious boys, my official taste testers, and they enjoy the desserts even more than the dinners. Go figure! 😀
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to come visit my website. I began this page in 2007 as a hobby and have enjoyed sharing recipes with so many of you over the years. If you need a delicious weeknight dinner or a decadent weekend dessert, you definitely came to the right place. I Hope your day is filled with Hugs and Cookies!
