Mother’s Day Sugar Cookies

April 29, 2011 in cookies - 5 Comments

Growing up, I was always jealous of my mom on Mother’s Day.  She had a whole, special day to herself and our family did everything she wanted.  My sisters and I even tried not to fight for the whole day, (which was always her biggest wish), and believe me, when there’s…

Easter Sugar Cookies

April 22, 2011 in cookies - 9 Comments

It’s been such a busy week, I am sorry that I haven’t posted in a while.  At work on Monday, I had two co-workers ask if I could make Easter sugar cookies.  One wanted a dozen polka-dotted eggs for their office aides, (I work in a high school), and the…

Reflecting

April 14, 2011 in musings - 2 Comments

This cupcake was the most recent dessert I made, which was on Saturday.  Sadly, I came to the realization that I’ve made too many sugary treats the last couple of weeks.  This epiphany occurred when my husband was eating chocolate chips out of the bag because there wasn’t a cookie or scone or cupcake…

Bittersweet Chocolate Chunk Cookies

April 7, 2011 in cookies - 2 Comments

In this season of my life where there are days that it’s hard to “look on the bright side,” I am trying to focus on what I have to be thankful for and the many blessings that God have given me.  Some of my favorite joys in life (and in no particular order) are: watching a sunset…

Chocolate Mint Sundae Cups

April 1, 2011 in cookies - 4 Comments

Mmmm, I love mint and chocolate. Especially warm mint and chocolate.  I bought some mint chips over the Christmas holiday and was waiting for the perfect dessert in which to use it.  And the idea came to me yesterday.  This dessert provides all the comfort of chocolate and mint in…

Spring Flowers

March 28, 2011 in cookies - 6 Comments

I am trying to will spring to come.  Yes, yes, I know it’s officially here, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it.  There are streaks of sunlight, but it’s quickly gobbled up by ominous clouds and cold rain.  Making spring cookies was my way of letting Mother Nature know that it…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

March 23, 2011 in breads - 6 Comments

  I am overly ambitious every time I go to the grocery store.  When I see all the yummy fruit, I buy way more than Eric and I could possibly eat.  I justify this by telling myself I’m going to eat all of my daily serving of fruit.  Unfortunately, this rarely happens. …

Mint Oreo Truffles

March 16, 2011 in frozen desserts - 12 Comments

I like to think I’m Irish.  I look enough like one, (red hair, fair skin, and freckles), that I don’t think anyone would question me if I said my ancestors were from Ireland.  I even participated in the Shamrock Run last weekend (although it wasn’t to support the Irish).  It’s…
