Everything's Coming Up Daisies!

I don't know about you, but I love daisies.  So much that I decided to theme a Sweet Sixteen Birthday party around them along with crisp, clean black and white stripes and dots.  It was the perfect combination of Sweet and Sixteen, right?  I started with an invitation I purchased, added ribbon and the daisy which was included.

Garden Marker Cookies!

Most of you know I'm not one to be outside digging around in the dirt planting a garden.  Don't get me wrong, I love fresh vegetables, in fact I grew up on a farm getting to enjoy the labors of my mom and dad's hard work.  However, I didn't carry on their legacy...
I went to the grocery store. 

I do remember the markers used in the garden and wanted to recreate them in cookie form.  This way I will dig around in the dirt, or you might say Oreo crumbs.

Summer Rice Krispie Treats

I love spring, even if we're still getting cold weather, it's just knowing Summer is around the corner.  No more coats and no more scooping the walk.  Okay, when have I ever scooped the walk?   Anyway, when I found this pan, the first thing I tried, was making shortbread cookies.  Did you notice I'm not posting about shortbread cookies?  Nope, those didn't exactly work out.  But the Rice Krispie Treats did.  You know whenever I mess something up, I make Rice Krispie Treats.  Because I'm a pro at that.  And because it's almost Summer...almost.

Unicorn Oreo's!

You've got it!  Or should I say I've got it?  I'm finally hopping on the Unicorn trend.  I kept thinking as soon as I made something Unicorn, it wouldn't be popular anymore.  Just like what happened with Angry Birds.  Did I tell you about that?  I hand cut Angry Bird cookies time after time and finally I decided to buy the cutters.  And then you know what happened...not one person was interested in Angry Bird cookies ever again. 

This time I decided not to invest in anything, just use what I had on hand.  Just in case the Unicorns disappear as fast as Angry Birds, I'm hoping that won't be the case.  If you're looking for a little more sparkly inspiration, I've got you covered, look no further.

May Day!

It's almost time to knock on someone's door and run.  No, I'm not talking about some kind of prank, it's called May Day!  Back in the day, I filled cute little baskets with candy and my mom would take me around to deliver the baskets. The goal was to leave the basket, knock on the door and run back to the car without getting caught.  When I returned home, I would be happy to find several May Baskets left at my front door as well.  Does anyone celebrate May Day or even know what I'm talking about?  I want to keep the tradition alive and that's why I came up with something fun!

May Daisies!


PYO Cookie!

Today I'm talking about the PYO Cookie.  Are you wondering what is a PYO Cookie?  Don't feel bad, for quite awhile I didn't know what that meant, so I'm here to tell you and you'll never be left in the dark again.  PYO means Paint Your Own Cookie!  Yes, it's like a coloring page, only on a cookie and you can eat the page.  They've been around for awhile and it took me a longer while to create them.  Now I'm thinking, what have I been waiting for?

Easter Nest Oreo's!

I can't tell you how excited I am about these Easter Nest Oreo's!  Well yes, I can.  You see they turned out just as I had planned and even easier than I thought.  And that makes me very excited to share with YOU!

Easter Egg Rosettes!

It's been years since I've made rosette cookies.  Or maybe they're just called rosettes?  Do you even know what I'm talking about?  Chances are your mom or grandma made them but I doubt many of you have.  I came across the egg shaped rosette iron and colored powdered sugar, do I need to say more?

Cream Cheese Easter Egg Mints!

Have you ever had a cream cheese mint?  If not, you're possibly missing the creamiest mint around.  I love the texture and the mild mint flavor.  Plus the cute little egg shape doesn't hurt.  Again, I found the perfect mold at Michaels and didn't buy it.  When I started to make the mints, I realized the little egg mold would be perfect.  So when you see that little mold, buy it the fist time and save yourself the trip.

Rice Krispie Treat Easter Basket

I've made all kinds of Easter Baskets in my life, but this is the first time I've made Rice Krispie Treat Easter Baskets!  I know, can you believe it, why did I wait so long?  At first I was going to pipe the frosting on with a basket weave tip, but then decided to make it quick and easy.  My imprint rolling pin (I bought for who knows what) came in pretty handy.
