Very soon it will be Valentines Day..or Galentine's Day~
What I like about it? Such a cute holiday..
I remember getting Valentines at school and loving them..little..
and because I thought I would NEVER get one during a period in my adolescence..a little later I loved them..too.
And Jacques..I think I have many many from him..maybe the early ones too..
I like preparing for the boys..
making special cookies.. a little furry friend..which Jacques says I have to stop..Lucas will be 12♥
Anyway funny funny..Terry ..who I knew at GB's and here..emailed-me with a Smitten Kitchen recipe..
that I had Pinned the day before to make the cookies..
you can find the recipe here..with another link.
I froze the rolled out dough a few days before..and wow..there you have it..just cut out..and then decorate.
They keep their shape perfectly..and certainly not too sweet so you can..add things..
I am disappointed I used my food writers for the names.. food coloring and a small brush..much more delicate and precise..they will not notice..
See the hearts lined in black (could have been darker)?
I found these on Bridget's site.You know I love her blog..happy to follow her on IG..(such a nice family)..
I used her icing for cookies..you can find anything you want about cookies right there.
I have her 2 books..They are great. Bake at 350 is her beautiful blog's name.
So these she called Ombre cookies..go see..I call mine Hombre cookies.
Hers are perfect.
I actually should have looked at them right before..her hearts are a cuter outlined shape and I love her colors.♥
That little bracelet in the center of the boys ..is a bracelet I made when Lucas was born..aww..memories..
Just this week..like 2 days ago..that beautiful Susan Branch book arrived in the mail from Texas..
Sarah..has an eye for beauty..and a heart for kindness..
Hyacinths for the soul..talk about Valentine's.:)
I have a bag of home made cookies for the boys..
They don't read my blog...so I am safe..;)
Have a lovely weekend..~
And PS..Flash News!
You have heard me mention Marie many many times here.
I have been so grateful for her recipes..I think I spoke of a few a couple of posts back..
weel she is not only a great cook/baker..
but a very accomplished artists and shew writes beautifully..
Marie is publishing her first book that will be available on Amazons..I'll let you know when..I know the book must be finished by the end of March.
It was always a wonder why someone had not snapped her up by now..her cookbokklets available on her site are utterly charming.
I am certain I will pre-order this book..
I will keep you posted..
They sought her out:)
