Spring Forward!

Last night Liz had a birthday party with friends so I was busy baking …cupcakes, chocolate~ice cream cookies, caramel corn…

warm, crisp cookies

I borrowed this cookie recipe from Baker’s Banter and used ice cream instead of the creamy filling.

chocolate~ice cream cookies

They were fun to make and very yummy

{how would I know that?  Unfortunately, my 4 weeks w/o sugar was completely challenged yesterday and I did cave but today is a new day}

going to the freezer

homemade carmel corn

homemade caramel corn is favorite and again quite yummy 😦

spring forward...This isn’t my favorite night of the year because Sunday mornings are always early, get-up-and-go type of mornings, but as with each year, tonight we lose an hour!

Daylight Savings time begins!

We say “spring forward” but I only wish that spring was even remotely close in these parts.  I do plan to get my tomato seeds planted though ~ maybe today [inside, of course].  That will help put a ‘spring’ in my step.
