Holiday Cookies

Filed under: Uncategorized — 2sisters2cities @ 3:02 pm

Every year I make many types of Christmas cookies to give out as gifts for the holidays.   I had a huge project at work plus busy weekends causing me to only have two types of cookies the weekend before Christmas!   Luckily with a little Christmas music (Thank you Frank and Bing!)  I made 7 more types of cookies on the Sunday before Christmas.  I know, I know I am pretty impressed with myself too.   I have already posted about some,  so I am going to list 7 of them below (linked are the recipes!)

1. Mexican Wedding Cakes ( recipe coming soon!)

2. Buckeyes

3. Scandinavian Almond Bars

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Temptations

5. Salted Toffee- Chocolate Squares

6.  Oatmeal Scotchies

7.  Glazed Lemon Cookies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy!

Announcing the arrival of Baby T!

Filed under: M's post — Tags: , , , , — 2sisters2cities @ 12:37 pm

Well, it’s now officially been well over a month since Baby T has been born so I figured it was about time I get to blogging about it!  He is such a great baby (well, maybe not so great in the evenings, but we still love him very much!)  I knew having a newborn would be hard work, but I never realized how much of a time encompassing life change it would be.  Time just flies by.  I can’t tell you how many times I have looked at the clock and am completely flabbergasted by what time it is (such as now…I’m still drinking my morning coffee at noon!)

My labor went relatively smoothly.  I was in labor at home for over 24 hours starting on my due date before we headed to the hospital.  Husband M took the day off work to go on walks around Castle Island and Thomas Park with me (it was a blustery cold day).  I was still in labor that night, but the contractions were still 10-20 minutes apart so we held off on going to the hospital.  Finally, around 5 or 6 a.m., I decided to get into the shower to start getting ready to head out.  By the time we left at 7 am, the contractions were coming hard every 2-3 minutes.  Once we got to the hospital, I was pretty much ready to push.  I was still able to get an epidural at that point thankfully (sorry Husband M for dragging you to 2 weekends of Natural Childbirth classes…although I did get to that point naturally!)  They gave me a 30 minute break to relax and then it was pushing time!  Baby T came out in less than 15 minutes. It was such an amazing experience to finally meet the little being that was living inside of you for the past 9 months.

Now that we are somewhat getting into a routine (as much of a routine as you can get into with an infant), I am going to try to get back to blogging more often.  On the agenda…very easy to cook dinners (my bon appetit and Julia Child cookbooks are getting pushed to the back of the bookshelf), baby stuff,  holiday ideas, reviewing last year’s resolutions, and mew resolutions for 2011.  Thanks for sticking with us readers!

Buckeyes!

Filed under: Desserts, K's Recipes — 2sisters2cities @ 10:34 pm

My first post ever about a year ago was about Buckeyes, a cookie my family makes every Christmas season. They are a pain to make but everyone always loves them.  I just made them this week,  I split them into two days,  the dough the first day, and the chocolate dipping the next.  Try them for yourself!

Here are some pictures to help you!
