I love food, cooking, nutrition, and eating… put it all together and what have you got!? This blog! Through my dabbling I have realized I am a strong believer in clean eating. I hope my documenting of family recipes and random dabbling though food inspires you to do even more!

St. Jean Baptiste Cookies
So this year I made some cookies to share with friends and my hubby's co-workers. I thought I would share some unexpected photos.
Of course there are these pretty photos of the results.
However there are a few things that went wrong, that I thought why not share!? The uglier side!
This idea I had at about 1 am was not the greatest idea. I had made frosting and thought I had another big bag of powdered sugar to make a blue batch. Not such a thing. The cookies were for the next day and nowhere is open here at that time. Such a mess. I ended up having to do something different. Paint on the cookies with blue food coloring. It took forever to dry, and was not a great idea.
So Don't do that! :D
At about 1 am I made a stencil. It was not that bad. I think it would have been better with frosting. But still a useful tool I have kept for later use.
This also was a horrific trial. So I only made 2 of each.
Regardless, it was a fun experience and the cookies were still yummy!
