Whimsical Sugar Cookies

March 8, 2011 in cookies - 2 Comments

I just love little girl stuff–cute Sunday dresses, lovely butterfly decor, adorable flower headbands.  Every time we are at the store, I longingly look at these things and sigh.  My husband just laughs and says, “Maybe our next kiddo will be a girl.”  Don’t get me wrong; I love my little…

Cranberry Orange Scones

March 5, 2011 in scones - 4 Comments

  Home.  It’s my favorite place to be.  When I’m having a bad day, all I can think about is being home, sitting on the couch with a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate, watching the fire, and letting my problems melt away.  When I’m out shopping, I think…

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies

March 3, 2011 in cookies - 3 Comments

It was my friend Alonna’s baby shower this past Saturday.  I was asked to make favors (I was so honored!) and decided to make cute baby-inspired lemon sugar cookies.  Her baby room theme was “unofficially” jungle  (as she called it) and I used this background paper as my inspiration. When…

Bittersweet Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups

February 26, 2011 in frozen desserts - 1 Comment

Nothing says comfort like peanut butter and chocolate.  When I’ve had a really bad, rotten-awful day, peanut butter and chocolate satisfy my soul.  Sometimes I just dip a square of chocolate into a jar of peanut butter, but that was before I got married and didn’t care how many times…

Well, since by the time you’ll be reading this, today will mostly be over.  So, I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day!  For me, my husband and I had dinner in, with me making shrimp linguine for dinner and bittersweet peanut butter cups for dessert.  (I’ll post both recipes…

Super Bowl Party

February 11, 2011 in cookies - 6 Comments

Well, the Super Bowl was almost a week ago, and this post was supposed to be up by Monday.  My husband’s birthday was Wednesday, and this post was supposed to be up by Monday.  My sister asked me to post the desserts I made for the Super Bowl/Eric’s 29th birthday party,…

Personalized Picture Frame

February 1, 2011 in crafts, misc. - 6 Comments

I was at the local craft store this past week, armed with some birthday money, (which is a very, very bad thing), when I came across this wooden picture frame.  I wanted to make a cute picture frame for my baby and this was an inexpensive way to do it,…
