Have you ever been in search for a cookie cutter in that special shape and you just couldn't find it? I have Well guess what? Your search is over! Why not make your own cookie cutter!
We all know Cookie Monster loves to eat cookies, but it turns out he's quite the baker, too! Cookie Monster's famous cookie dough recipe first appeared in Big Bird's Busy Book , from the 1970's. If you like a bit of nostalgia mixed in with your sugar and eggs, this recipe is for you: If it's difficult to read the instructions above, here they are verbatim:
I cannot get enough avocado. In high school, we had an avocado tree in our front yard, and I got avocado whenever I wanted it. In Washington, avocados are freaking expensive! Although various varieties of avocado are available year round, they are typically most affordable in the spring through the fall. When I see a really good deal on avocados (under $1 each for the large size), I buy about ten at a time.
A few years ago I did a post on how to make edible spoons and bowls from dough. I thought it was a great idea, but just not with my method and recipe. I searched online to see if anyone else had done something similar and stumbled across a small handful of ideas, but then found this little gem… Roy, the inventor of the Edible Spoon Making Kit has indeed thought of a really simple and clever way to make edible spoons. Roy kindly sent me a kit to try (and will be giving one lucky reader a free kit!). Since receiving the kit, I’ve made well over 100 spoons (maybe 200 by now) and have enjoyed sitting around a spread of dips and toppings munching away on the spoons. To make the spoons, simply roll flat a piece of bread, punch out the spoon shape, press the cutout into the spoon and bake (more detailed instructions supplied with the kit).
Ok.. this is it. Seriously! You make this... your kids will think that you are the absolute Other moms will be talking about you...
We are anxiously awaiting the opening of the Universal Motion Picture “The Lorax” this Friday and have decided to give our family dinner a little “Lorax” makeover to celebrate. The Lorax Family Dinner Makeover Many people are participating in Lent this week as well, so Friday I have on the menu a simple pasta dish with vegetables and Alfredo sauce, from our Weekly Meal Plan . In the movie, the town of Thneedville.. “ a city they say that was plastic and fake “….. has no trees… “ no nature, no flowers and no one seemed to mind “… until one boy journeys to discover what happened to the trees.
Much has been made of the restaurant industry’s dark underbelly rife with drugs and alcohol, but little about the darkest addiction of them all: chocolate sprinkles. Those in the pastry department find themselves at an especially high risk for developing a dependency on jimmies, aka chocolate vitamins and will “take” them on everything from buttered bread to ice cream, cupcakes and sugar cookies. If you don’t leave now, you may soon find yourself doing lines of chocolate in the kitchen too.
After Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day, it's time to move on to the next holiday: Easter. No, I didn't forget about St. Patrick's Day. I just don't have any new idea for it yet. Same as 99% of my dessert recipes, this chocolate nest is easy to make. It takes very little time, no special tool required and no big mess to clean up after ^,^ It would be a fun project for you and kids to work together!
Supplies you will need: 1 tube of refrigerated sugar cookie dough yellow and red food coloring 1 package of Oreo cookies toothpicks green ribbon
I love the idea of doing a tea party - young or old! Especially for those that don't like do drink too much ;o) I think it would be a great reason to have your girlfriends over (or your little one's girlfriends) without needing a holiday or birthday! Of course you need tea sandwiches! Everything looks better on a tiered tray topped with fresh flowers! Even egg salad or cucumber sandwiches - inexpensive and oh so yummy!

The beauty of making your own amaretto lies in controlling the sugar content of this almond liqueur. In a side-by-side tasting of our homemade amaretto and popular commercial brands, ours was less sweet and had a true almond flavor. For the sweet tooths out there, just add more sugar. What to buy: Apricot kernels are the dried seeds of fresh apricots.
I know it is rare to see a non-dessert table on this blog, but as soon as I saw this fruit and veggie table by Esther Kim of My Bride Story , I knew I had to share it with you all. Esther was inspired by our dessert tables and used the same techniques on this healthy spread as we would for a dessert spread. Like myself, Esther is a mom and is conscious of what her son eats so she wanted to present fruits & veggies in a fun and stylish way that would appeal to both parents and kids. I’m loving the watermelon and caprese salads, pumpkin latte shots, and the yogurt parfait shots. I also adore the brassica cabbage and artichoke arrangements and brussel sprout garland created by Kristine Shin and the lovely tags from the gals at Wiley Valentine . This is a chic and healthy alternative to having desserts at your party.
Valentine’s Day is coming up! Lots of people celebrate by going out to a fancy dinner, but some people prefer to celebrate by making something special for their loved ones. If you’re looking for a fun idea that will make anyone happy, look no further. I present to you, heart-shaped sushi.
By Cindy Littlefield There is no shortage of teacups at the Mad Hatter's unbirthday party. In fact, the cups rotate around the table so quickly Alice never gets so much as a sip of tea. Made from ice cream cones and cookies, these edible cup-and-saucer treat holders are a cinch to assemble and will ensure that each guest at your child's tea party gets his or her fill.
