How To Prime A Chalkboard

Today, I'm sharing a simple tutorial for how to prime a chalkboard. 

How To Prime A Chalkboard | Detailed steps for an important process after you use chalkboard paint.
This summer, I had this wild and crazy idea to paint one of the walls in my office with chalkboard paint. Top to bottom, y'all. It was an all or nothing kind of thing. With a chalkboard this huge, I had to do some serious priming to get it conditioned for regular use. I thought I'd document those steps so I can show all my friends here how to prime a chalkboard...you know, for when you go all kinds of crazy and paint an entire wall that way, too.

Glazed Caramel Apple Cookies

These Glazed Caramel Apple Cookies are a mouthful of autumn!
Glazed Caramel Apple Cookies with Two Icing Options | The perfect fall cookie...either with a praline-like glaze or a cake-like frosting! Delicious.
I'm a big fan of cookies. I'm a big fan of apples, too. But more importantly...cookies. When I set out a couple of weeks ago to make some fallish cookies, it occurred to me that I didn't want to go on pumpkin overload this year (honestly, I have an obsessive personality and can go on overload anything if I'm given carte blanche...pumpkin especially). I mean, I definitely love pumpkin, but I also want to bring in a few more fall flavors into my baking this year. 
But, y'all...I make these pumpkin cookies that I found over on Heather Bullard's blog years ago (although, I think she has removed the link, because I absolutely can't find it anywhere...sniff, sniff) and I really love not only the taste...but also the texture. They're a big fluffy cookie with a luscious frosting that kind of makes my heart skip a beat. And of course...they are all pumpkin-y inside. I wanted to find another fall cookie with that type of texture, but an entirely different flavor. And these Glazed Caramel Apple Cookies are all of that...and more! Check out the recipe below.
