LONGWOOD GARDENS & THE ORCHID EXTRAVAGANZA!

This past weekend, I took the quick drive up to the Philly area to visit with two of my dear friends from college, Karen and Margaret. We spent Valentine's Day together at Longwood Gardens, viewing their annual Orchid Extravaganza. It was absolutely gorgeous! Here are some snapshots from our day together...

JUST SOME CARDS...

So this post is almost a year overdue but thought I'd share anyway. Better late than never, right? Here are some cards I made at a crafting weekend with my aunt, cousins and mom.

Hello 2015!

I am getting pretty bad at the whole keeping-up-with-the-blog thing, although I am sure you will forgive me when I give my "excuse".

White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you had a fulfilling holiday full of family, friends, laughter, food and blessings. :) I bring to you today an awesome holiday cookie recipe... White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles! They are extremely soft and chewy and not overly pumpkin-y. I could make and eat these all through Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! Enjoy the recipe!

PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN!

'Tis the season of the pumpkin! This past Saturday, our friends hosted their second annual Pumpkin Party. Everyone brings a pumpkin food and then we hang out with wonderful friends around a perfect bonfire. There were your typical delish pumpkin desserts including scones, cookies, cake and pie. Todd and I contributed to the sweets with some Pumpkin Donuts with Chocolate Glaze. For the savory eats, there were burgers, macaroni and cheese, chili and gnocchi; all including pumpkin, of course. Todd and I also brought Turkey Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions & Pumpkin Chipotle Mayo. Yum, yum, yum!

GF MACAROON COOKIES WITH CHOCOLATE

It's officially Fall, people! I love this time of year. I woke up this morning for a quick (two mile) run and it was a chilly 38 degrees. By the time I was finished, the temp had risen to the 50s. Just gorgeous, cool, perfect autumn weather. And you would think that I would go with the fall theme and make some sort of pumpkin or apple dessert. But no. I went coconut instead!
