I have a few things I always make during February and sugar cookies are at the top of the list. So with my heart shape cookie cutter Wilton Metal Heart Cutter
I set out to try a new sugar cookie recipe. I always, always, always make my moms recipe and it is, of course, the best! But I found one recipe and it had almond extract added, so I thought I would give it a try.
As I was making these I realized I had ran out of almond extract..so extra vanilla it was!
These cookies were very good and I even ate a couple without icing. But I think I will stick to my mom’s recipe from now on! It not only has a wonderful flavor and texture, it brings a heart full of memories with each batch! Thanks Mom!! And my hubby thanks you also!
This icing is my Mom’s recipe that my sisters and I still use at Christmas. Okay, well not just Christmas, anytime the occasion calls for a sugar cookie! I have added the icing and the sugar cookie recipe on my website so you can try if you like. I hope you had a wonderful

I love Red Velvet Cake. However, it is hard to find a bakery that makes one just the way I like it. I am finding it is even harder to find a recipe I can make at home! I am on the hunt this Valentines for the perfect Red Velvet Cake!
So far I have found and tried two recipes. One recipe was for red velvet cake and one was red velvet cookies. The flavor was not as strong as I like in either one, but when I shared with friends, they all loved it and said both were delicious! My husband thought the cake was one of my best as far as texture and moistness goes..so that is something!
While it was not exactly what I was looking for, I think it turned out pretty well. The search will continue and I am certain I can find that Red Velvet Cake recipe that will be the one that I always go to! I will let you know. (recipe for both cookies and cake are under “something sweet”).
It is getting close to Valentine’s Day so it is time for the pretzels, white chocolate and SPRINKLES! Sprinkles add a little something extra to everything! YUM!

…she’s going to ask for a glass of milk!
I LOVE milk and cookies. I heard milk “does a body good”, but does that mean in large quantities and served with a side of cookies? Even so…I do allow it on special occasions.
These delicious M&M cookies were split between my husband’s office and mine! Yum! I love baking and sharing with others! It not only puts a smile on someone’s face, but hopefully keeps a few pounds off of mine!
This recipe is simply the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip recipe with M&Ms instead of chocolate chips. I am going to try to venture out next time and see what I come up with! Stay tuned 🙂
