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.):

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.

Are you ready for a hiSSSSSSSSterical Pi day? “Count” me and my π.thon in on celebrating our most irrational moment. Now go get you geek on!

I before E

A little irony before the end of the year. The English language both/often perplexes and amazes me.  2018 sure had some unique word choices.   ….exceptions to the rule or exceptional?

Synonym Buns

Actual cinnamon buns in the oven led to synonym buns. Which got me on a roll that led to some pretty silly cookies. Seriously though, the English language and I have a long and convoluted relationship. Come along while I navigate my cookie-documented IDIOMactic journey!

Baker’s Christmas

My family will tell you that I can’t leave well enough alone.  Always tweaking a recipe, seeing a kids board game and must play it, listening to a travel program and must make plans to go there. Well, apparently, I can’t leave classic song lyrics alone either.

A shout out to all of my hard working, creative, amazingly talented fellow cookiers at this busiest of times!

Stick with It

One advantage of waiting so long to post this set is that it is hockey season again (we are in that sweet spot of sports where it is baseball, football, hockey, and basketball season all at once.  Choice is a good thing, right?)

Anyway, back to hockey. … and word play.
