Fresh New Tulips~ Blush pink and white..
New bulbs being forced~
Remember the chocolate stamped cookies? Plain vanilla sugar cookies.. this time..same blog authoress..Great For Stamping~!
The next thing I made ..needed these ingredients..
I have had a blogging friend for years..who bakes and cooks like nobody's business..And paints and crafts like nobody's business:)
Case in point..one of the many things I have made from one of her blogs..The English Kitchen~
I think an agent/publisher..should snap her up for the cutest greeting cards for cooks..bakers..
and while they are at it..a cookbook of her fabulous original recipes..
I think they should seize the day to snap her up:)
And how cute is this?
Part of a bag my daughter had some things in..
She left it here knowing I would like it:)
So ..I am a copy cat..I know that..
The sugar cookies..
You can find the recipe in it's entirety here..
Remember the Downton Abbey Cookies? These are the vanilla bean ones: We made 1/2 the recipe and got 19 generous sized cookies.
They are perfect for a housewarming gift with the new address on them:) Cookies cut out with a house shape..
I think I got that cutter in Sarasota Florida ..@ Sur La Table.
The Brigitte letters and numbers were used with the longer holder..not the cutter.
I find the cookies print even better without the cutter !
Thought I would mention it because I know many of you have it:)
The clock I have had for at least 15 years.♥
It's made of sturdy cardboard with glass front..so so sweet.
The reason I mention copy cat..is that I cannot draw something from memory at all.I have to look at an object..a photo..something.
I recently bought a book from a reseller recommend by Jenni..and I have been having fun practicing..
I even stacked up some books to share with you..
There is no comparison between Amazon.ca resellers and being in the US and having Amazon.com resellers..
I usually keep a wish list going of Amazon.com treats.
I am so grateful for Amazon.ca..but the prices.. in all categories..are beat in the US.
And I never invent recipes..I find them here and there and appreciate finding them so much..
My friend Linda.. emails me recipes she thinks I would like..this past week alone 2 were featured in our home:) 1 a repeat..her red lentil soup.. and the other ..Nigel Slater's Coq Au Riesling..DELISH..
Getting back to Marie..I seem to be all over the place today..Marie draws from her head~ Her own ideas..and does it beautifully:)
And creates her own recipes..
That's why I think an agent should snap her up.
You can find her Jam bar recipe here..I can walk away from cakes ..chocolate..pies.. etc..candies.. but these? They are like a cookie for me..
They are soo good..so easy..
and send an agent:)
My first round of hyacinths has come and gone..I had 3 left..for the next round..so they have been placed on the vases..and have started sending shoots..
And a new floor mat..
A sweet gift..
reinforces..the words..Carpe Diem..Every Day~
I love words..
And we all know Time Flies.
So try the bars..I asked Jacques what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday and he said the jam bars:)
Imagine.That's how great are! I have made them twice since..
