It’s all about that Baste

Cue Meghan Trainor music.

It’s all about that baste, ’bout that baste, moist turkey.

FALLing for you

Autumn, in all it’s splendor, is my favorite time of the year.  To celebrate the colors of the season, I baked some “autumnal” mini cookies to hand out to the neighbors! Just a little color to enjoy before we quiet down for winter.

Here Ye, Beer Ye

ALE yeah, turning 21 is reason to celebrate.  And in the US, adulthood means you can legally raise a glass.  In honor of Denver’s craft brewing industry and those whose HOP(e)S and dreams are set by beer, I present two of my best BREW.ha.ha cookie sets.

What a Crock!

So my amazing friend Lisa was fast approaching another birthday.  How could I make her laugh and let her know that she is showing no signs of aging? By expressing my sentiments in cookie, of course.

Rose’ and Croquet Party

This box of cookies was taken to a Croquet and Rose’ themed birthday by a party guest. Got to love a cute theme that rhymes! And what could go wrong at a party that mixes excessive amounts of wine with a large mallet and heavy, hard ball?

I may or may not have had to do some “research” about rose’ wine???????

Geek is the new Chic

I am so happy for Katherine- that she is graduating from high school and heading to Pitt to study neuroscience.  But, dang, she is the youngest of the swim kids with whom our children hung out! All this growing up is happening!  An era of chlorine is over (I mean, even Michael Phelps is retired now). Yikes!

In any case, it was one last graduation set to make.  I made two platters: one focused on the nerdy inclinations and the other on her future university, Pitt.

For the Geek inside us all (okay, maybe not ALL of us), I focused on some biological responses.  #nerdsrule #chemistryiseverywhere  Those stamped clever/nerdy sayings came from pencils I bought from Newton and the Apple.

But my favorite was the Myelin sheath dress.  (I try to come up with my own clever creations whenever possible.  I think this is another Mama Mayer original.)

Lastly, here are a couple of close ups for the Pitt cookies. I have a thing for puffy cookies….
