Shortbread Strawberry Cookies

I am still baking with strawberries. This cookie recipe was fairly easy. I used a cookie cutter after the were baked to make them into neat circles. I then added cookie icing to add a bit of cuteness to them.

Strawberry, Strawberries and more strawberries

A friend told me she had some extra strawberries and asked if I would like some. Wow, was all I could say when my husband sent me a picture of what she left for me. My husband and I cleaned and froze most of them and put some aside for various recipes. I treated my husband to a strawberry daiquiri after he helped me clean and package the ones I froze. 

Chocolate and Chess

As a devoted chocolate lover, I am always looking for different ways to decorate my chocolate cupcakes. These are very moist and rich with chocolate flavor. The frosting is chocolate buttercream. I used a few different frosting tips to decorate these cupcakes. Now that I made them, I just need an occasion like a chess game to share them.

Rainbow Cake Pop Treats 

Everyone immediately wanted one as soon as I put these on the table. It was a good thing I only put a few of them out for the lunch gathering for my family reunion. Otherwise, there would have been none left for the big dinner gathering. I am just glad everyone enjoyed them.
