Spiced Bagel

I was making a bagel the other day and decided to try some spices on top, it was soooo good!!! I toasted it, spread some plain cream cheese on it, and then sprinkled the top with spices. I used cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and some brown sugar. It was so good that I had the same thing the next morning!

Colorful Snickerdoodles

Happy December!!!

Thought I would post one of my favorite cookie recipes to get you in the baking mood.:)

(If you’re not already!)

Last month I was making snickerdoodles and decided to roll them in colorful sugar and cinnamon instead of just plain old sugar. They turned out awesome! I did red and orange sugar for fall until the red ran out, then switched to yellow. The colorful sugar crystals are a little bit bigger than plain sugar so the dough would collect the sugar faster than the powdery cinnamon, but it still worked pretty well.

Green Beans

We got a bunch of green beans from our garden, we had to get a second container when we were picking them! We are so excited, last year we only got a handful. This year we may actually have enough for a few meals! We also got a few sweet peppers, and the tomatoes are coming along.

Cookie Painting!

I love brothers! Mine like to mess with projects that I’m working on, which can be annoying sometimes but they do give me good ideas once in a while.

I was decorating cookies the other day and had some food coloring laying around to color my icing with. I had a few cookies already decorated and set aside. Pretty soon someone was asking me if it was alright to “paint” one of the decorated cookies with some of the food coloring. I said it was OK and turned back to the cookie that I was decorating not thinking much about it. When I looked back at the cookie that was being painted I saw how nice the color was staying! I wanted to try it too!

So I did!

It is so hard to get colors like this in icing, who knew that I would learn about a decorating technique like this from a brother messing around! ;)

I will definitely be using this method of coloring in the future!
