Back to School! May 4, 2018

So….I made these cookies for the teachers for back to school in September but I’m just now getting around to adding a picture now in May.  I’ve been a little busy training for my first marathon so baking and cookies has been on the back burner.  In all honesty, everything has pretty much been on the back burner.  But now that my first marathon is behind me I’d like to start baking a little more.



National Unicorn Day!

My niece turned four last week so I wanted to make cookies to share at her birthday party.  My daughter and I found a few ideas on Pinterest but ultimately went with simple unicorn, 4 and cupcake shapes.  Our original idea of using an egg shaped cutter and freehanding the unicorn ended up being what we jokingly called “Pinterest Fail”.

Happy 4th Birthday, K!

The mom of one of my step daughter’s cross country and track teammates reached out to me back in early spring to ask if we could plan for me to make cookies for her older son’s graduation from University of Washington.  After graduation Hunter would be on his way to NYC to work for Teach for America.  NYC is one of my favorite places in the world so I jumped at the chance to make cookies for this event.

These taxi cookies may be my all time favorite cookies.  So cute! IMHO.



Hello Arizona!

A friend asked me to make cookies for her daughter’s high school graduation in June.  Why I’m just now adding photos of the cookies in September is a long story but in a nutshell I’ve been running.  No really, literally running.  As in half marathons.  So, I’m terribly behind on my blog posts.

Anyway, my friend’s daughter was graduating from high school and on her way to Grand Canyon University in sunny Phoenix, AZ.  I came up with this cute arrangement to celebrate this HUGE milestone.

Good luck Lolo!

Happy Mother’s Day

In May my sweet neighbor asked me if I could bake cookies for her family flying in from Florida for the weekend.  She gave me free reign to come up with any design as long as it was spring related.

I thought these bright and cheerful cookies were Mother’s Day appropriate.

In April my niece turned 3!  As an aunt it’s outlined in my roles and responsibilities that I should make cookies as part of all of her special celebrations like birthdays.

This summer I was honored to attend the baby shower of one of my favorite ladies – our former nanny!  I was happy to provide cookies for the guests to celebrate the special occasion.
