Easter Tic Tac Toe

Growing up I couldn’t wait to get my Easter basket!  My parents never really splurged that much on us kids, but I always knew there was going to be a basket on Easter morning.  My sister and I would fight over who got the pink basket or the purple one.  I think I always lost …

Easter Chicks

Shamrock Cookies

It seems that my underlying theme on this blog is “keep it simple!”.  I am not an artist.  I really don’t think I have an artistic bone in my body, never have.  It’s very frustrating!!!!  But I try to find ways to compensate for that lack of talent.  My latest accomplishment?  The shamrock, or 3-leaf …

Zebra Cookies

I have a neighbor across the street having her very first baby shower!  Her and her husband are from Czechoslovakia, and their idea of a baby shower is to celebrate with friends and have a nice evening.  So I asked the mother-to-be where they were registered…..and she just stared at me.  “What is this registered?” …

Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Recipe

A friend approached me about doing some cookies for her, and that started me thinking on making some test cookies for her to taste and see which ones she liked best.  Nothing fancy, mind you.  Just making batches of  my Quick Sugar Cookie Recipe and changing the extracts to give different flavors.  Then it dawned …
