Baking With Love


If you read my post yesterday you would have seen that I was baking cookies all afternoon and watching my Jayhawks beat Oklahoma State! I found this great recipie for sugar cookies on Sweet Sugar Belle blog where there is no refrigeration necessary.  It took me half the time that it normally takes and I think they taste even better than Martha’s famous sugar cookies (Sorry Martha).  * A tip for the icing- use gel food coloring. You achieve better colors for the royal icing.  

Here is the reciepe via Sweet Sugar Belle 


  • 1 cup- 2 sticks of real unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp almond flavoring 
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt

    Super Bowl Sunday


    Happy Super Bowl Sunday! This is one of my favorite days of the year because I have an excuse to eat all of my favorite junk foods and it is about the only day I actually like to watch commercials.  Which commercial was your favorite? Can you believe the Giants won? I personally was rooting for the Patriots (maybe because people say Patrick looks like Tom Brady) so I was a little disappointed but naturally I already got over it :)

    The Menu:

    • Barbecue Chicken Pizza
    • Seven Layer Bean Dip with Tortilla Chips
    • French Onion Dip
    • Pigs in a Blanket
    • Red and Blue Cake Pops 

    All the recipes were extremely simple and I was able to watch all of the pre-game festivities.  Did you have a favorite recipe you tried this year?

    Good Morning

    This morning we woke up and made a big breakfast to get ready to tackle my reorganization project I have in store for today.  My goal is to clean out my closet of everything I haven’t worn in over 1 year, color coordinate, and deep clean my our whole place.  Are you crossing off anything on your resolution list today?
