Cookie Tulip Fields

Sometimes a story is told better backwards, so let's try that today and work our way from the end. I had just completed these tulip cookies and I wanted to gift some to our German neighbors. We haven't really gotten to know them yet, as they only know a little English and our German is well barely there. Cookies, well, they are understood in every language. And you don't exactly give cookies ... [ read more... ]

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookie Cake

You guys. Our big move to Europe is now just a couple months away. I don't even know where time has went, where did my year to prepare go? I have less then 30 days before the movers come to pack everything up and ship it away. Then we'll be left with an empty house for awhile. Lots of emptiness, and children, and dinners without table.

Strawberry Chip Funfetti Cookies

Let's be real here, today I have no words for today's post. Wait a minute…wait a minute…nope nothing. Nothing funny, or sweet, or sad…not even something remotely entertaining. But really are words necessary when it comes to cookies? I mean really. Strawberry. White chocolate chips. Sprinkles. Soft. Chewy. All in cookie form (bonus points for pink cuteness). So let's skip the chit chat and get ... [ read more... ]
