Bird and Butterfly Cookies

April 28, 2018 in cookies - 2 Comments

  The colors of spring are so vibrant right now!  I just love walking through our backyard to see the tulips, peonies, and rhodies blooming.  And while getting up early for work has never been easy, it puts a smile on my face to hear the birds chirping their lovely…

Besides just the overall merriment that comes with this holiday season, one of my absolute favorite memories around this time of year is baking.  Usually I have my staples of certain desserts I like/have to make, but try to add a few new items that hopefully make it to my…

7 Layer Bars

Today hit a high of 50 degrees.  You’d think it was spring, based on all the people I saw wearing shorts and sweatshirts around downtown Portland.  It almost will be, since we dealt with freezing temperatures for about a month now.  20 degrees warmer and we’re pulling out the lighter gear…

My junior year in college, my roommate and I thought it’d be fun to have a tea party.  We made cute little sandwiches, where we cut them in small triangle wedges and trimmed the crust, had different fruit bars, and of course, a variety of teas.  Our friends came over…

Pacific Northwesterners love snow.  I say this because we don’t get it very often and it usually doesn’t last.  Yesterday was our first snow of the season, and it was a very light dusting.  My one-and-a-half-year-old son was intrigued by the large white stuff floating down from the sky and…
