4th of July Pie Crust Cookies

This time of year always has me feeling patriotic. I was trying to think of something fun I could make with the kids that would help us celebrate the 4th. When I looked through my refrigerator, I noticed some pre-made pie crust that would be expiring soon. I was in no mood to make a…

Labor Days

This? Lasts for about 3 minutes every day.  Then it’s like watching cage fighters. It’s very difficult for me to spend an entire day at home.  I know some moms take their jobs at face value and relish hours spent within the four walls of their prison sanctuary, but not me.  However, in order to…

Cookies! Number seven

Yesterday was a slow day in the field; after an eternally long night of fractured sleep pieced together with long, loud screaming sessions courtesy of Hobie, I wasn’t quite sure any of us would even make it to morning. Alas, saved by Pop Tarts and Coke and a healthy dose of ibuprofen, onward I baked….

Christmas would not be Christmas without cookies. This year, I’m busy baking up The Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies to give as gifts to family and friends. Not that it has anything at all to do with the twelve days of Christmas, or the song, but there will be a dozen kinds of cookies and…
