Halloween Spider Cookies

You know what I like about Halloween? Bright colors and silly faced pumpkins and lots of candy and the little trick-or-treaters with their flashlights and glowsticks dancing down the street to get that candy. Especially the ones with the tiny little legs that can't carry more than 12 treats before their arms get tired and their parents have to carry them home where they fall asleep on the living room floor after eating 1.5 pieces of said loot. You know what I * don't * like about Halloween? Pretty much everything else. It's so creepy and scary and just kind of gross. And I don't like creepy or scary or gross. I'm a complete wimp. I can't even look at these cookies. I put them in my basement when they were finished and I'm going to make my husband transport them to their next destination. He doesn't actually know about that part of the deal yet. But I'm pretty sure that transporting spider cookies is on the list of " Things Husbands are Sup

Cutter Challenge Round-Up and a WINNER

Remember that one time I posted a challenge for September and then never drew a winner for basically forever? Actually, that pretty much happens every month, doesn't it? I'm an awful procrastinator. My secret's out. It's time you knew. Also, I bought popsicles for my children for the first time ever last week. And I told my daughter that I would save the other half that she didn't eat, but I didn't. I ate it when she wasn't looking. Now I'm probably going to eat half of another orange popsicle and pretend like it was hers. Also, apparently, popsicle isn't a real word. That's what Mr. Red Angry Spell-check Line is telling me. He needs to go look at last month's cookie challenge entries. They were so fun! I'm pretty sure they could make even Mr. Red Line happy. Let's talk about what I love about these cookies from Sugar Pearls Cakes and Bake s.... EVERYTHING. I love that a Santa cutter and a flip-flop cutter turned out to be

Easy-Peasy Halloween Cookies

I don't know about you, but I enjoy being able to simplify things. Take the book, "Atlas Shrugged." It's about 900 jillion pages long. And I read it this summer. And at the end, it could be summed up into one single sentence -- Society was breaking so these 3 guys convinced all the smartest and hardest working people to leave so it would implode . There. I've saved you endless hours of reading and actual thinking. Also... I like when I can simplify dinnertime. Sometimes I go crazy and I make a main dish and a salad and bread and multiple side dishes and it's not even Thanksgiving and we're not having the mayor of the Gyeongsangbukdo proving for dinner or anything. So, sometimes I just go with cereal and a bowl. I don't even add milk, because then you have to also add a spoon. And that's just going too far. (Except sometimes they add milk themselves. And their own spoon. And I'm cool with that.) (Just so you don't report me to the Paren
