They Draw & Cook

The Dish is teaming up with Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, founders of They Draw and Cook, all December to share holiday recipes rendered by artists and inspiring all sorts of seasonal cooking with Food Network chefs. Each day, stop by the Dish for a new drawing and Nate and Salli's liner notes about the illustrations and the artists. Tell us which you like and why. A dollop of this, a dash of that and some talent add up to interesting ideas in the kitchen. Visit theydrawandcook.com for more info.

Artist (and baker!) Sarah Ward from Sheffield, United Kingdom, makes these stunning cookies seem simple to make. Her super sweet illustrations lead you easily from one step to the next. We both love her fanciful lettering style and tumbling snowflakes. The end result could not be one bit sweeter than the little girl winking in the cookie window. It's 100 percent charming, as is every single illustration on Sarah's website. We think these would make beautiful ornaments for your tree; don't you?
