Happy Monday! I’m slowly easing back into the swing of things with my right hand. Last week I received a custom splint and started my PT, so I’m moving in the right direction. It’s been 3 weeks since my surgery and I’ve been itching to get back into the kitchen and bake! With all the new cookie cutters that I designed earlier this year, it’s been on my list of to do’s to try them out.
Happy Weekend! Hope you guys are all ready for the holidays! I needed a quick and easy treat to bring to my youngest daughter’s program earlier last week, so I made marbled Oreos again. You may recall me sharing them back in September for a baby shower that I hosted. This time, I added a festive touch by using red and green food colors and sprinkles from the shop.
I know I’m not the only one who had a long and rough week. I’m with you. I’ve felt the emotions and the heartache myself, along with friends and loved ones at home and across social media. There are many needing extra support right now. Instagram specifically has been a place full of beautiful words, kindness and inspiring posts, all of which warm my heart. That sense of community has brought with it peace, and comfort, and a reminder that we’re not alone, and that the worries and concerns we’re feeling right now are surely valid.
Happy Monday you guys! It’s official, today is my birthday! I’ve actually been celebrating all weekend, but I’m continuing the festivities this evening with fun sparkling cocktails and the Seahawks of course!
Since no birthday celebration is complete without champagne and cake, these sparklers are a must!
Happy Halloween weekend! This is such a fun time of year, where anything goes when it comes to dress up and decor. I had that thought in mind, when I decorated a few mini ghost pumpkins hanging around the house the other day. The pumpkins are inspired by the adorable #unicorncake(s) I keep seeing over on Instagram.
Happy 4th of July! I’ve been feeling under the weather all week, so my plans for the holiday weekend kind of went out the window, but that’s ok because we have 4th festivities happening at home and my family will be celebrating with us later this afternoon.
My brother was actually born on the 4th, so the holiday was always a big deal for us growing up. I fondly remember my mom making cherry pie each year, and that dessert is one of my favorites to this day. That being said, making cherry pie for the 4th this year was a must, but instead of one large pie, I chose to create individual servings for each of us to enjoy, since mini everything is much more my style.
So…. the Super Bowl. I guess I haven’t said much about it up to this point, because unfortunately, my Seahawks lost. What a sad day for all of us hawks fans, hence the reason for me dragging my feet on a football post. It’s just not as exciting to tune in and celebrate when your favorite team’s not a part of it. But, the show always goes on and I’m certain the half time performances, the commercials, good food and company will be more than enough to make up for it! So If you’re throwing or attending a Super Bowl soiree and are in need of a quick and easy treat to share, you’ll love these chocolate dipped mangoes! Made with just 4 ingredients (all vegan) and shaped into little footballs using the miniature football cookie cutter from the posh shop. With their touchdown worthy taste and all natural ingredients, you’ll feel good about serving these fab little footballs tomorrow!
