3D Baby Carriage Cookies

Welcome to a Royal Baby Shower

Today we are celebrating the birth of 2 little precious baby girls. Penelope and Liv. Born on the same day. Born to 2 moms  with a great passion for cookie decorating.

I've been admiring cookie artistry of Callye and Georganne for a long time. I first met with Callye(Sugarbelle) on Flickr,  I think 7 or 6 years ago. Then it was time to expand and I started my blog. One of the first things I did I held a cookie decorating contest  and guess who entered?  Georganne(LilaLoa). That's basically how we met.
Callye and Georganne , both just had a baby girl. To celebrate their new bundles of joy, together with my blogging friends we decided to surprise them  with a Royal Baby Shower.

Warm Cabbage and Apple Salad

Do you eat cabbage? If so, how do you like it? Raw, cooked, roasted ? In the soup or salad?
I generally eat it raw, as a snack but I also make soups, casseroles, salads with it. I personally think that cabbage is totally underrated and it is not used enough in daily cooking. It contains such a great source of vitamins, nutrients, it's low calorie and it is cheap to buy, too.

Warm Cabbage and Apple Salad/Side Dish to Pork or Chicken
(about 4 servings)
5 cups sliced fresh cabbage
1-2tbl oil, olive oil or vegetable
1 apple, cored and sliced
1garlic, diced(optional)
1tsp caraway seeds
1tsp kosher salt
1/8tsp fresh ground pepper
  • Toss cabbage and apple with seasonings.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add cabbage apple mix. Cook stirring frequently 2 minutes, Add diced garlic if using. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until apple and cabbage are just getting tender but still have little crunch. You don't want apple to get very soft.
