I’m Bringing Rexy Back

T-Rexy.  T-riffic. Beau-T-ful.  I’m putting some creativi-T into these dinosaur cookies, inspired by the lovely art of Jane Van Der Karr and of Tiny Tudor Cookies.  Current infatuation is the look of wet-on-wet technique highlighted by edible ink pens (try Teri’s awesome fine tip pens over at TweetsCookieConnection !!!). Classic and classy.  Make love, not Roar.

She said OUI!

Such a romantic.  He took her on a trip to Paris and, in the most lovely of settings complete with music, he asked her to marry him.  Je t’adorABLE!!!  At the celebration back home, cookies were served. Paris puns predicted??? Oui indeed.  Here is a sampling from the set (yep, I neglected to get photos of the whole bunch before they went out the door. Oops.):

Stars and Stripes

These little beauties made their way to near.and.dear military folk(s) in Afghanistan.  Starting in 2001, this longest of US wars is at 18 years and counting.  My many thanks to those who serve as they are asked. Come home safely.

LobstAH

Ahhhhh.  Maine in the summer.  Truly a slice of heaven on earth.  Friends invited us up for a concert, good company, and a traditional lobster dinner! I had to think of something CLAWsome to bring with us and here is the resulting gift box.  Please forgive the misspelling of buoy.  Didn’t catch my error until we were already on our way.  Still , they are cookies… they put their indignation aside.

TREEmedous

It is my tradition to create a “punny” cookie set for my friend Kathy’s birthday.  She has the mother of all green thumbs and her garden is a wonder to behold. Her produce has inspired many a cookie veggie tale.  But lately, she has also been planting a veritable forest of trees on her property.  Mother Nature is so proud.

Oh yeah.  And she made me this incredible charcuterie board I used to stage the cookies!!

Leprecorn

The Irish seem to love all things magical but here is one not “yeti” a common St Paddy’s day item.  Feast your eyes on these leprecorns, St Patrick! #Eringobragh #unicornallthings
