Tutorial: Stadium Cookies

Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Ok... So I made these stadium cookies like I don't know how many years ago for a college football playoff.  At the time I was just kinda getting in my groove and I had no idea how popular they would become.  Well, they are now one of my most copied cookies.  Not complaining.  I'm happy people seem to like them.  Just one of those things where you don't know how something is going to go over until years pass and you do a Google search.

Anyway, I thought I would show y'all how I made them years ago.  Or kinda how I made them.  A quicker and smaller scale version of them anyway.  The ones I made years ago were like 5 inch cookies and had this rather unnecessary scalloped edge on them.'s a toned down version of them that's super super easy.  And I think the cookie I used is like 3 inches or something.  So there you sized.  Just in time for the Super Bowl.....

Ramblings: Pregnancy Insomnia

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
For the last 2 or 3 weeks all I can think about is how dang tired I am.  I mean, can't stay awake.  Asleep before my husband and daughter...needing afternoon naps...just drained.  Like the first trimester returned coupled with kicks to my internal organs...including my suddenly nauseous stomach.

But  I can not wind down.  Hubs fell asleep about 3 (maybe 4) hours ago.

In those 3 hours I have:

-Eaten about 3 slices of banana cake.  I'm estimating because I sort of destroyed it this afternoon packaging up most of it to take to my hubs shop.  I basically strolled out into the kitchen at midnight and ate the scraps off the cake plate with my hands.  It was like carnage.  A wild woman, with fresh kill.....

Did I mention I can really eat lately??  I mean really eat.  My husband gave me the last 2 pot stickers tonight (we usually split them) saying something about how I probably want them more than he does...  But there was fear and horror in his eyes.

- Oiled my belly (no new stretch marks so far!  yay!)

-Watched the alien in my tummy create warped waves in my abdomen.  Think he might be turning...hopefully head down.....  That or practicing for future sky diving acrobatics.....

- Played a couple rounds of Bingo Bash on my Ipad.  You can only play a couple rounds before you run out of chips....and I refuse to pay real money to play a bingo app....  Yes, I am an old lady who enjoys a good game of bingo.... judge away.

- Read a few blogs.  Had a few laughs.

- Watched a couple sappy Valentine's movies on Netflix.  I have no idea why I'm "girling out" lately.  All I have wanted to watch is salacious television and sappy chick flicks.  It's really not like me at all.

-Ate some cheese.

Wild Valentine

Monday, January 28, 2013
Sorry for disappearing for a week or two.  The WHOLE HOUSE came down with the sniffly drainy crud!  And my poor daughter came down with an ear infection in both ears. :(

But I'm feeling better.  Well enough anyway to post some cookies.

Sophie's Pink and Purple Princess Party

Over the holidays my beautiful little girl turned 4.

These were seriously the only non Christmas cookies I made all season.  And I think they're my favorite because they're just so darn GIRLIE!!  :)

Tutorial: Making Snowflakes

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

So Christmas time is over...which means a lot of places will finally be getting some snow :)

Or at least that's how it seems to be here in the they say.

Really, I don't know.  The year before we moved here, Joplin got like 8 feet of snow or something.  People were blocked in their houses and all that.  Since we moved here....


Let's face it....snow doesn't like me as much as I don't think I would like it.  I mean it's cold....

really cold.

Anyway, speaking of snow.....I thought I would show a quick tut on making snowflakes that are pretty and still fast and easy

From the Vault: Football Stadium Cookies

Thursday, January 3, 2013
The College Football National Championship game is almost here!!

It's January 7th.... I think.....

Anyway, it's Alabama VS Notre Dame.  Big game.

I've mentioned my family ties to U of A yes?  Yes.  We're big into the SEC in my family.  We enjoy SEC football.  So it's no surprise who we are going to root for.

Notre Dame... Alabama.... My dad almost had a coronary.....
