Spring and Summer just come too fast!

They're Coming!

oh no! Mother's Day is right around the corner, and then well I always love making a big deal over the 4th of July and who is graduating this year, getting married, having a baby??  Oh the wonderful parties and events I plan in my head before falling asleep each night!  Unfortunately, another summer of recuperating for me.  I've just undergone my 2nd back surgery in 6 months, so all these colors and appetizers and decorations may just be a dream once again for me this year, but some how some way, I will get at least some new healthy cookie recipe or sugarless cupcake in here!  Enjoy some inspirations of my older posts and keep on living the love in the details!

Easter Table 2012

I have several sets of Easter and spring dishes I have collected over the last twenty years.  My intention was to set up a variety of them each night a few weeks before Easter....well Easter mysteriously snuck up on me and I am way here is at least one of my attempts to use my favorite dishes.

Easter Egg Cookies

Stenciled Easter Egg Cookies

These really aren't as hard as you might think!  I used a regular plastic stencil on top of white fondant.  I made a thick mixture of
royal icing and spread it over and scraped it off with a spatula knife, lift up stencil and let frosting dry.  It was that simple.  My little butterflies are from a fondant cutter and just touched with some pink pearl cake dust.

Easter Carrots

I see these cute little carrot bags all over the web filled with jelly beans, cheese balls and all kinds of sweets.  I had this novel about carrots in the carrot?  I am putting these in my kid's school lunches this week!  What a conversation piece for them!
