I kept eyeing this little pot of purple roses at work last week and seriously considered getting it. But the last mini roses I had were attacked by spider mites so I am gunshy about it and ultimately decided that, for now at least, simply admiring them at work was enough. Not to mention it saved me a few dollars which is always a good thing.

Until next time. xoxo

My momma made a stand mixer cover for me for my birthday, and I love it! Between my somewhat dodgy measuring skills and her dislike of using patterns, it turned out a bit too big but that’s totally fine – too big is still functional whereas too small would not have been. She chose a fabric that honestly I would never have chosen myself, yet on the finished piece it works so well! She also put some pockets on the sides to put the attachments in, or spatulas or other tools commonly used when the mixer is being put to use. 

Until next time. xoxo

I know most folks roll their peanut butter cookies in granulated sugar or sprinkle some granulated sugar on top after making the criss cross pattern with the fork. I always felt that was a bit pointless as the sugar just melts away as the cookies bake. What I prefer to do is just use a cookie dough scoop to scoop the dough onto a parchment lined sheet, make the criss cross pattern with a fork dipped frequently in granulated sugar just so it doesn’t stick to the cookies, then I sprinkle the tops with a coarse sugar. Some of it will still melt into the cookies as they bake, but there will still be some granules left behind that have not melted. I think it makes them prettier than just using regular granulated sugar.

 Until next time. xoxo
