Button cookie, button cookie, who’s got the button cookie?

Just a quick question or three before I find out exactly how easy it is to make button cookies:

It says here to sew thread through a small stack of buttons. Do I use one of those sharp metal pointy thingies? Can you help me with that part, please?

Or can I skip all that decorating stuff and go straight to eating the cookies?

Eh? I should share the cookies??

Maybe you can help me with that part, too.

There are a bazillion button cookie recipes out there. Today I like For Chic Sake‘s version best.

Popsicle Garlands

First thoughts: Wait, how many popsicles will we need to make and eat so that we have enough to make this garland? Ohhhh….that’s a whole bunch of popsicles. Tummyache time. Oef.

Realization: Wait! We can simply buy a kit! Yay!

Second thoughts: Wait…. I’d rather make and eat the popsicles. Mmmm…….!

It’s a mulberry! It’s a blackberry! It’s a…oooh, can I just eat it?

It’s been years since I was last on the family farm, which explains why I was having the umpteenth argument with myself that blackberries and mulberries look exactly the same.

Absent the source, and if I’m not able to touch ’em or taste ’em, yes, I’m going to confuse ’em.

Eating ’em? Ah, no problem!



They don’t look alike, though…do they?

Don’t eat the dog treats!

I am capable of eating plain, low-fat yogurt, and I can eat jarfuls of peanut butter.

Banana baby food? Probably ok.

I can eat honey.

Which means I can eat this frozen yogurt snack, right?

Until I stick a dog biscuit in each cup.

Then I can’t – won’t? – eat it.


Howzabouts I stick dog biscuits in only half of the treats?

Woof. Bow-wow. Arf.

Crunchy Carrots of Love

Heart-shaped carrots!!!

Build a soup around ’em.

Or drop ’em by the bucketful in your salad.

Or just inhale ’em almost as fast as you can slice ’em.

Can’t quite figure out how to make them? It’s easier than it looks (gentle alert: that’s a non-vegetarian soup over there)!

Go go go: create some crunchy carrots of love!
