Happy BB

What I've Been Pinning and Making:

cookie: A

I made these.

cookie: B

and these.

They sort of both claim to be the best sugar cookie ever.

To be honest with you they are both a good cookie but
cookie B is by far, waaaaay better and my favorite.

Cookie A's texture is too ugh I don't want to say chewy
because I like chewy! but they were way to soft, I like soft
too but it just didn't feel right. Never the less the flavor was
great and I didn't even get to frost them because they were
all gone in a matter of minutes.

Cookie B though, was absolutely perfect! soft in the center,
crispy on the outside! I also topped them with a cream cheese
icing that was super good and you should totally make these. 
I love that they are almost a hybrid in between a sugar and 
shortbread cookie. I know I will be making them again!

These cabbage and carrot noodles with egg from the New York Times
website. I made them for a picnic with friends and everyone absolutely
loved them. Mom approved and whenever she approves something,
I know it's good!



This cake was also made for the picnic and was a big hit as well!
Since I laid eyes on this baby, I just knew I had to bake it and
I'm so glad I did. It's light and fluffy, citrusy and topped with
sour cream and pecans! I highly recommend, such an easy bake.

Late Holidays.

Hello, hope you all had very happy holidays and hoping
your 2014 is treating you very well.
I'm late as always but it's the thought that counts right?


Maximiliano with his cousin Michael right before our Thanksgiving dinner.
Dinner was delicious and it was the first thanksgiving we didn't spend at home.


This was taken on Christmas Eve, with the first present he opened that night.



These were taken on Christmas night when we went for a walk.




These were from Maximiliano's half birthday!
He turned one and a half in December and his aunt baked him a cake that he
very much enjoyed as you can see.


Here he is after his second haircut!

P.S. We didn't take any New Years pictures because we all passed out
way before it was even 12!

XOXO
