WELCOME TO MY "OTHER" BLOG!

If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!



This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show And Tell - A lot of dough!

Cookie Dough That is!





What we DIDN'T have was...POWER! Thanks to the ice storm that beat up the North East we were blessed with a snowday to get caught up with our holiday prep! The cookie dough sat patiently until the power returned. We have now eaten more than our fair share and frozen the rest.

Oh - in case you were wondering. Bear is making good old fashioned Choc. Chippers and the small balls are a family recipe: Italian Anise Cookies. They look like this when baked and decorated.

Happy Baking and Eating! And - if you are looking for a good way to walk off some of those calories...try hauling your Christmas tree home, red-wagon style! (he-he)



What are you show and telling?

Those look de-lish!

Kristin said...

Oh my do those look yummy. The Italian Anise cookies sound delish!

Cassandra said...

You have so many cookie sheets! I have a few but only a couple double-layered pans that give the best results, so I have to wait to scoop them out until each previous batch is done. Maybe if I had a cute little assistant I'd enjoy the scooping process more!

Wow - that's a whole lot of cookies. Looks like you guys had fun.

Another Dreamer said...

Oh, wow! Yummy. I love cookies...

Lindsay said...

Wow, that's a lot of cookies. I have only tiny pans that fit one dozen only if you squish them together and seperate them right after they come out of the oven. I think it's time I did a little bakeware shopping. :)-

Cara said...

Hmmm - you ladies are right. I DO have a lot of cookie sheets. I wonder how that happened.

I'm happy to email the Anise cookie recipe. Murgdan - look for it today.

Sam said...

those cookies look just delish!! I am glad to hear that the dough survived quite well!!

Martha said...

Carabella, this looks delicious! Molto Grazie!

MrsSpock said...

Those look scrumptious! What do the Italian Anise cookies taste like?

Cara said...

Mrs Spock - anise has a mild licorice flavor. It is counter balanced by an equal amount of Vanilla.

mmmm!

Malky B. said...

No I didn't get anything for me in FL. It's always harder to shop for myself.

battynurse said...

Yummmm. Cookies.

Had to come back for another look at the cookies!

BTW, thanks for the comment on my blog - you said it's a good thing we're not on the witness stand. Funny thing...I do find myself on the witness stand occasionally (I work in a crime lab). Apparently, I can only see things through a magnifier. Except cookies. I can see those anywhere!

WiseGuy said...

Ummmm....how about outsourcing the tree-carting?

Jamie said...

Wow. Those cookies look great!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
