Snapshots from the Past Few Days

Hey hey! I’m coming at ya bright and early this morning. Malcolm slept in Sadie’s room last night and work her up at 4:30 and Sader Tot decided to take all her clothes out of her drawers and throw them on the floor 🤷‍♀️ 

I’m just stopping in to share some photos from the past few days!

Baking Mode

I have been in “baking mode” ever since my brother and his fiance asked me to bake 500 cookies for their wedding.

A lot of taste testing has been happening in the Smith household! Bill and Racquel’s wedding theme color is light blue, so they asked me to incorporate it into the cookies somehow.

Here’s what the bridesmaid dresses look like.

That shade of blue is the theme color for the wedding. I’m going to be a bridesmaid, along with Racquel’s sister and friends. Hannah is going to be a junior bridesmaid! Her dress hasn’t been chosen yet, but I believe it’s going to be white.

On to the cookies.

Here’s what I’ve tested so far. Bill and Racquel really liked the Mexican wedding cookies, and are going to try the others today.

White chocolate-dipped shortbread cookies loosely based off of this recipe. I used white chocolate and dyed it blue. Yes, my chocolate “drizzling skills” need work. Haha.

This recipe was used to bake the snickerdoodles.

I have whole list of cookies I still want to try out, but it will probably be a few days until I actually get a chance because I’m going to be pet sitting for 9 hours each day for the next two days. More on that later!

What is your favorite cookie?

I love oatmeal raisin and peanut butter cookies.
