Have You Seen This Woman?

It's my mother! If you see her today, wish her a happy birthday. My mom was the best baker I had ever known until I met my mother-in-law, Marilyn. It's a tie, but both have their specialties. My mom makes the most incredible white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies with dried cranberries. She also buys special chocolate and makes these brownies that words can't even describe, not to mention her snickerdoodles. I used to sneak her cream cheese brownies out of our basement freezer and eat them- they were delicious frozen solid! Marilyn makes ginger spice cookies which are out of this world, ladylocks to die for and tassies that you can't stop eating. Why am I doing this to myself? I was only trying to say Happy Birthday, Mom!

We are off to Orlando for a few days. We will have some food stories upon our return. While I'm out, if you have a chance to tell me about your favorite meal ever, see the July 14th post A Face Only A Mother Could Love. Be back next week...and the eggs!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday to Bobbi. You are a GREAT baker! Jen- maybe you could convince her to share some of her fantastic cookie recipes on "...bend the kegs."

Thank you. I agree! JB looks like her twin- she just put up a post on her blog with a picture of the two of them from last weekend. I always wished I looked like them- but the genie wasn't listening!

Oh Chicky - I wish I looked like you - you are so pretty! I look terrible in that picture but Mom looked so good I decided to bit the bullet - wish I had photoshop though. We did have a great time - we should plan a girls trip when you recover from your last trip.
