Easter Cookies!

Tomorrow is Easter, so to celebrate, my sister and I decided to make some Easter-themed sugar cookies.

We’re still honing our skills– we’re definitely still amateurs, especially if you check out some of these cookies!

We did our best, though, and I thought we should share the results.  I think we’re getting better.

We made several different types of cookies, just to play around and see what we like.

First we have the chickies.

Easiest. Chicken. Ever.

Oh my.  It’s only 1:37 and it’s already been quite a day. I should have known. Waking up to snow on April 20th is a terrible omen.

I titled this post “Easiest Chicken Ever.” and although I suppose there might be an easier chicken recipe out there, this one is incredibly delicious despite the minimal work involved.

Here’s all you need:

Mommy’s Little Monster

I made a new onesie for my little man. It was a monster, of course.

I started out the same way I start all my onesies: with a sketch.  I usually do a web image search of the type of thing I want, then pick out different elements that I like and make them into a new, original design.

Shepherd’s Pie

So. I’ll admit I like to make fancy meals for people.  This is not one of those meals. This is simple and delicious and sooo not fancy.

There are a lot of Shepherd’s Pie recipes out there.  This one is really easy, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.
