One Angry Carrot

I just baked some polymer clay carrot pens. Looking at all those happy little faces…

Oh, #%&*!

I didn’t put a hole in one guy’s head for his feather carrot top!!

Yikes, he is not happy about this either.

As soon as I get their tops on they will be going up in my Etsy shop.


Off Season Mint Cookies

I can’t afford to buy all the Thin Mint cookies we would like for the entire year all in one shot. But I can make something very similar with just 3 ingredients!

…and eat them non-stop all year round.

All you need is 1 bag of dark chocolate candy melts, a few more than 1 long pack of Ritz Crackers and about 1 tsp. of peppermint extract. Yes, I know, in the picture is the vanilla melts. These are all we have in left in the house right now. Gee, I wonder why? 😀

Just melt the chocolates, stir in the peppermint extract, flip a cracker around in the chocolate and cool on waxed paper.

Enjoy! Mmmm…  – Tina

When Good Cookies Go Bad…

A Christmas doesn’t go by without decorating sugar cookies. This year all three of my (teenage) kids had their sweethearts come over to help. Due to availability, it was three different days of sugar highs.

We started out with gingerbread houses. Things were looking good.

Then 2 gingerbread trains and a truck(we ran out of pieces for the third train). But that was ok, I think…

The truck ran over a snowman?

Then last night after ice skating…

zombie sugar cookies.

It was a lot of fun, all three days of playing with sugar. I hope Santa appreciates all this hard work. At least it all tastes good!

Have a wonderful holiday, Merry Christmas!
