Elizabeth & Nate’s Wedding Cookies

I know I teased you all last week with a sneak peek of these cookies. I’m finally getting around to telling you all about them.

Even before Nate & Elizabeth were officially engaged, my sister & I volunteered to make cookies. This was before we thought about the fact that Nate’s family alone could fill up the church. Luckily for us, Elizabeth had a lot of people make a lot of different kinds of desserts. So we didn’t have to make enough for everyone. We made about 80.

We had originally planned to only make cakes, but last-minute I decided to make some hearts as well, and I’m so glad I did. I think the hearts are my favorite.

Marble Cheesecake

It’s my birthday.

I’ve saved the best dessert for last. The piece de resistance if you will.This is the dessert that everyone in my family has on their birthdays because it’s just that good.

It’s cheesecake.

Marbled with chocolate.

Oh, yeah.

Birthday Brownies

In my quest to make birthday recipes all week, I came across these beauties by Bridget of Bake at 350. They’re Oreo brownies. But not just any Oreo brownies. These are made with the special birthday cake Oreos made for Oreo’s 100th birthday.

There was only one problem I ran into making these. They call for 20 Oreos. (more…)

Birthday Cake Crispy Treats

So I was trying to come up with a St. Patrick’s Day themed post to give you this week, but I couldn’t come up with anything. I was too tired to think about decorating sugar cookies, and when it comes down to it, I’m just not a big St. Patty’s Day girl. Maybe it’s because my birthday is the day before, so I’ve always been celebrating other things.

Anyway, all that to say, it’s my birthday this week.

Hooray.

So I decided that I would do posts every day that are birthday related. You know, except for Monday. Because I couldn’t get myself together to do one yesterday I definitely planned it that way.

ANYWAY.

For my first recipe of birthday week, I tried out this recipe from How Sweet It Is. It’s a cake batter rice crispy treat! (more…)
