Thanksgiving's Coming...

Hi everyone!  Thanksgiving's almost here and there's excitement in the air around here!  This year, my kids and I are heading to Boise to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family and we cannot wait!!  To make things easier on the host, my sister, Shauna (who just had her first baby and I can't wait to meet him), we've all been given food assignments for while we are there.

I'm in charge of the pies for Thanksgiving dinner and then the breakfast on Saturday.  So, I just wanted to let you know what I'll be making...

Pie Crust

Pumpkin Pie

Pecan Pie - 1 regular pecan pie and 1 chocolate pecan pie (mmmmmmm...)

Breakfast Burritos

I LOVE getting together with family because you know there will always be great company and wonderful food.  I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy cooking and, even more, happy eating!!!

Milk & Cookies Baby Shower

I hosted a baby shower last weekend for my friend, Robyn.  I went with the theme of Milk & Cookies, something very simple, but sweet at the same time.  So, I thought I'd post some pictures from the shower to give others some ideas if they have a shower to give coming up...

I made six different kinds of cookies.  I went with Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oreo Truffles, Carrot Cookies, Fudge Cookies filled with Peppermint Frosting, and Snickerdoodles.  We had milk, chocolate milk, and strawberry milk - the perfect pairings with cookies.

Everything was so much fun!  I can't wait for my next party to host!!
