Damask Cookies

I was looking at my decorative pillow on my bed the other day and decided I wanted to try and put that design on cookies. I think it turned out really well!
The 12 cookies create a giant image; if you look carefully you can see it, but the gaps between cookies makes it a little difficult.

Individually bagged and ready to go! (please ignore my fall decor)

Texas Army National Guard Cookies

Saturday afternoon I received an email from a woman requesting a dozen cookies to give to her husband this Wednesday when she picks him up from the airport. Her husband is in the Texas Army National Guard and has a 4-day pass to spend time with his family before an 11 month deployment to Afghanistan this Saturday.

Thank you for your service Joshua!!

A special thanks to Joshua and all the men and women for helping to protect our lives and freedom!

Cookies for Barktoberfest

* 2010, 8th Annual Barktoberfest *
Saturday, September 18th 9:30a- 2 pm at Old Settlers Park

Saturday morning I will be volunteering at Barktoberfest bright and early to help set up for the day's activities. I also baked lots of cookies and pooch treats to sell for the bake sale.

This is a wonderful event to help raise money and to help to save innocent pet lives and to find orphans a forever home!
What can you expect? Fun, games, food, cake walks, moonwalks, face painting, arts & crafts, a 3k walk and a dog costume contest!

Come out! Bring your dog! Support the SPCA!!

Homemade Oreos

I tried making a recipe I found online, homemade oreos! They are a little bigger and have less preservatives, but still do not come close to tasting like an actual oreo. They are, however, delicious and quite addictive! I have no self control when it comes to eating oreos, so I try not to have them in our house at all. One oreo just is not enough! But, if I am going to over indulge, these are better for me, right?! =D
