Color Me 40!

To celebrate the 40th birthday of a dear friend from high school, I wanted to surprise her with a splash of color.  The cookies were inspired by my friend’s amazing skill.  Her art talent always marveled me.  She painted beautiful images on canvas or doodled fun sketches in notes.  I always envied admired her talent. …

Last Day of School

A big thank you to all the teachers who survived another year.  This is a little treat I made up for my kids’ teachers.  The thank you goes out to everyone.

Something Sweet

I love creating cookies for my mom.  We brainstorm together about what design would suit her need.  She marvels at how good they look and is still a little shocked I’m the one who can make them.  I did use to burn everything and once (infamously) ruined boxed macaroni and cheese.  For the record, I was …

Happy Memorial Day

Thank you to everyone who give and give and give for our freedom.   And a most humbled thank you to all who have died for it.

Congratulations Peter!

This is a fabulous day for my little nephew Peter.  Well, he’s not so little any more.  In fact, today he’s becoming a religious man.  Okay, well not exactly. Today Peter is having his first communion.  A real right of passage in the Catholic world.  An honor in which he is very proud.  Peter lives …

Riding in the Sun

Who doesn’t love to soak up rays when the sun finally makes an appearance?  In our house it means motorcycles.  Hubs has one and now my children have little dirt bikes too.  I, on the other hand, stick to four wheels.  The closest I get to a motorcycle is cookies.  And even with that, I …

A Tisket, A Tasket

Easter is a week away and I wanted to bust out some holiday themed treats.  I love 3D cookies.  From the moment I saw the pinata cookie, I fell deeply in love with making objects out of cookies. My first attempt at 3D cookie art was a drum set inspired by my fave band, The Airborne …

Spring Has Sprung a Winner

We finally has a little sun in Oregon and the flowers started to bloom.  The warmth sparks many things.  The desire to get out in the fresh air, enjoying the new flowers, and overflowing with appreciation. Thank you to everyone for supporting Delish by liking our Facebook page and commenting on the blog.  Thank you! …

Thumbs Up for Delish

Last weekend we jumped into the business world with both feet and started a Delish page on Facebook.  Nothing is scarier than putting your creative self out there and ask people to “like” you.  When the first person hit they liked Delish, we were beyond excited.  As it started to grow, our confidence in having …

Happy New Year!

  These cookies were created to celebrate the new year.  Instead of a bottle of wine as a party attending hostess gift, I made cookies. My inspiration came from a great new bakery site, The Baked Equation.  She makes incredible cookie creations I hope to get more inspiration from in the new year. Now, go …
