Last month I signed up for a decorated cookie swap. It was my first time participating. Each cookie decorator was to mail set of 4 + cookies to the assigned recipient.Nobody knew who is making cookies for whom, and so it was all a big surprise.
I was little nervous as having to witness previous Cookie Swaps, bar was set high.
I wanted to make something different, something that wouldn’t be so much me, you know I wanted to get away from my traditional way of decorating. I’ve been trying to simplify my cookie decorating for a while now, biting my tongue at times and steering away from adding another dot or a swirl.
Asya and few other ladies moderated the whole thing and set it up. You may remember Asya from last year, she shared her mom’s recipe for delicious Barbara’s Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
Thank you for taking the time to make the swap possible.
Anyway cookies I made were Honey Cookies, they traveled all the way to Australia,

This scrumptious flavor goes way back…for me it originated in my grandmother’s kitchen. I baked my first “Moravske Kolace” when I was about 7 years old. I remember, it was the harvest season and she put me in charge of baking them. Today I decided to make this old time favorite into mini desserts…
Broccoli is a cool weather vegetable and does best in Spring or Fall, it doesn’t do well in Summer and in the heat so it is best to plant it in the early Spring, or in early Fall/late Summer. Just like radishes it goes to seed as soon as it gets little warmer, and just…
