Ballerina Cookies

Bowing-Ballerina-Cookies2

I had a crazy busy week last week. Things at work have been hectic. We are down a person in our department, due to medical leave, so it has just made things crazy for the last two months. At the end of each month we have to close our books and the week leading up to it can sometimes be madness. Wish me luck that today goes smoothly. Sometimes I feel like I'm stretching myself thin between work and trying to maintain this blog. I'm not always timely with my posts but I try to get them done as soon as I can. These ballerina cookies were made a couple of weeks ago for a co-worker's daughter's … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 6-22-14

slice-of-life-sundays

Hello friends. I missed last weeks Slice of Life Sundays post. I was so exhausted that I just didn't feel up to writing. I intended these posts to be a regular feature on my blog but have decided that it's not the end of the world if I miss one. If not much is going on or I'm not feeling up to writing then I'll skip doing one. This week was really crazy for me. Work was stressful. It seems like things have picked up recently and the amount of work I have to do has increased. I'm backup to one of my co-workers when she's out and this week she took a couple of days off so that just made … [Continue reading...]

Berry Banana Smoothie

Berry-Banana-Smoothie-2

Here in Texas summers are blazing hot. The humidity will literally take your breath away. I crave cool drinks all summer long. Smoothies are at the top of my list. Especially a berry banana smoothie. With a combination of frozen mixed berries, frozen cherries, a banana, greek yogurt and orange juice it is not only refreshing but delicious. I think you'll love the sweet but tart flavor of this smoothie. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:10] What's your favorite way to keep cool during the summer? Subscribe via email and never miss a post!

Slice of Life Sundays: 6-8-14

slice-of-life-sundays

Happy Sunday! Hope you're having a great weekend. I finally got back in my kitchen to bake cookies this weekend. My friend's daughter is having a dance recital and this will be the third year that I'm making cookies for her. I love to try and match one of their outfits. Last year I did pale pink tutus with flowers. This year they are wearing a pale pink color again for their ballet number and I didn't want to do that color again. I'm being bold and doing black tutus as that's what they are wearing for their tap number. They'll be getting the cookies after the recital is over so I'm not too … [Continue reading...]
