A time of Giving and Thanks

The last few weeks have been very busy for me, but I have found a new passion...COOKIES!!!

First, I made a gift basket for a dental team with a "sweet" tooth

Next, I had the honor again this year to bake for Brett's Blessings, a non-profit charitable organization created in memory of Brett Burdick, who passed away on December 8, 2008 in the intensive care unit of Children's Medical Center, Dallas. The mission is to assist local DFW and North Texas hospitals any way we can, whether it's through the donation of new, unwrapped toys to the children staying there, or in the form of monetary donations which can help ease the burden of financially distressed parents.

For the bake sale this year I made Build-A-Bear sugar cookies:

This last week I was so excited to get to bake our annual "I'm Thankful for my Teacher" gift baskets. This years baskets were themed to match cute sayings
"I am simply bananas for you" - Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
"Brownie Points" - Brownie Bites
"You're the apple of my eye" - Chocolate Covered Apples
"I love you to pieces" - Puzzle Piece Sugar Cookies

Also in the midst of all this cookie creating I had a small side project of 40 cookies and cream cupcakes for a special little girls birthday, I was told they were a huge hit!!

Take some time to GIVE and be THANKFUL!
