Royal Icing Transfer Flowers; Babies in Bloom Cookies

babies in bloom flower cookies

This weekend was great! I got to attend a baby shower for my best friend. I just found out she was pregnant and it was a fabulous surprise. I was excited to make some cookies for the event. It's been a little while since I've been inspired to make cookies. It is WAY more fun when you have a personal interest in the cookies. The baby shower was unique because her family combined baby showers for three cousins. The theme of the shower was spring flowers. So I thought it would be fun to … [Read more...]

Christmas Sugar Cookies 2015

I wanted to share my Christmas Sugar Cookies for 2015. I probably should have shared this BEFORE Christmas, but it just didn't happen. I always like making Christmas cookies. There are so many (maybe too many) possibilities. My pile of Christmas cookie cutters is as big as all my other cookie cutters. But this year, I wanted to make sure that I focused on one thing. That Christmas is about the birth of the Savior. Sure, there are snowmen and Santa Clause and elves... And I did make some of … [Read more...]

Chalkboard Cookies Using A White Food Color Marker

You might remember a few months ago I shared a way to make a white food color marker.

Well, you have to use about 3/4 cup of food coloring to get icing that is … [Read more...]

I feel like I've been missing in action this whole summer from the blogging scene. The summer has flown by and I can't believe it  is coming to an end. I always start to panic at the end of the summer that we didn't do enough as a family, that we didn't take full advantage of the summer.  We've had many panic vacations at the end of summer due to this feeling. I've had to keep reminding myself that we've had quite a monumental summer 2015. Here's a little recap. Ironman 70.3, White House … [Read more...]

Simple Sunshine Cookies

simple sunshine cookies

Yesterday was a trifecta of a day in our family. It was Father's Day, it was our son's 2nd birthday and it's the first day of  summer. I made these cookies to celebrate. These are some cool-cat simple sunshine cookies.  It was appropriate treat since the sun was out in full force and the temperature was a balmy 99 degrees. It's only going to get hotter now. And I love it! I even sort of took pictures of the process. Which I always forget to do. These are so quick and easy to make. … [Read more...]
