My Heart

Yesterday, I made these cookies with the boys.  Well, I made them by myself, but we frosted them together after school.  There’s only so much “help” in the kitchen that a mama can take, right?  I kind of screwed up the cookies by rolling them out too thin.  I’m so used to doing crackers that I couldn’t seem to help myself.  So the cookies themselves are really thin and floppy.  I’m super impressed with the frosting though.  It is delicious and perfect for icing cookies.  The boys are CRAZY for the cookies–somehow they don’t seem to notice (or care about) the floppiness.  We used India tree natural food coloring and India Tree sprinkles, which were such a novelty for them.  Especially after I told Mario that the sprinkles weren’t on our diet (they contain sugar).  It’s like he’s getting away with murder every time he eats a cookie!

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce you to my boys–my heart.  They are the reason I spend all my days in the kitchen, and I wouldn’t change a single thing.  I recently realized that one of my favorite ways to show my love for people is by making them good food.  So you can imagine how much I love these kiddos.

  1. The cookies look yummy and the boys look so happy enjoying them.
    I was a Whole Foods yesterday and couldn’t find the India Tree Natural Food Coloring (I think they were out), but did see the sprinkles.
