Do I love the crisp days of autumn when having the oven on is appreciated? Yes indeed! I also love the colors of the fall. Here is my interpretation of the trees in our yard; New England has nothing on the maples and oaks of Buffalo (pretty both places). Also have an urn with a stack of pumpkins that defy gravity…hopefully the winds of Sandy too.
I ran the Farmer’s Market at the high school and I needed a way to thank the volunteers. The ceramic plates I used were from Crate and Barrel (come in a pack of 12) but Wegmans now carries plastic plates of all shapes and sizes so that could be a cheaper option. The tags were from the Container Store. …Put a personalized note on the back of the tag for each of my wonderful helpers!
Western New York was well represented in the Zumba world this October during a Zumbathon to raise money for Our Little Roses (house for “battered” girls in central America). The sass-ification level at the BAC was AH-mazing!
Love my kick boxing instructor. Made these for her on a special day. One of her favorite sayings is to “fight like a girl.”
Made these glazed cookies as a thank you for a good deed by the owners of the Tennis Club where our youngest worked.
Good glory Miss Tori! Can’t believe you have graduated from high school and are off to the University of Vermont! Now for some serious strength training along with your swimming. Enjoy the cookies while you can burn off unlimited calories! Congratulations!
Needed to take along something for a beach party this summer. Although we don’t live on the Maine coast or in Baltimore, I thought it would be nice to include a few crustaceans as the main course was a seafood boil. Maybe I should have made little corn-on-the-cobs? Next time.
