i love getting/giving flowers (especially tulips) as much as the next girl, but sometimes you just wish you could show up with some homemade chocolate chip cookies. and when you're too far away, it's hard to beat sending some of uncle chip's cookies. perhaps even better than the cookies are the witty cards they come with. my favorite? "cookies are good. steak is good. corn dogs are good. but, you are fabulous! have a cookie." runner-up? "you don't live with your parents any more! have a cookie."
valentine's morning, we were with dear friends in athens, georgia. and like the amazing hosts they are, they took us to the best bakery around, a completely precious place called "ike & jane." if you are remotely close to athens, you really must go. best donuts of our lives -- and the red velvet ones are worthy of seconds. amazing latte too, and how cute is this mug? (which i bought as a souvenir of this perfect morning!)
even better than donuts? spending time with a dear friend.
this is my new love. making cakes for people for not their birthday. at first i called this "no reason cakes", but that isn't accurate, i always have a reason, it just not may be a reason other people make cakes. just so you don't think i'm betty crocker, i'm actually stealing her recipe-- both of these are box cakes. and why re-invent the wheel? especially on a work night when i'm just hoping the cake cools in time to ice it! above is the red velvet cake i made friday night for one of our great friends, below is one i made a couple of weeks into marriage. both are for milestones in flight school, which are big things for us right now. very cake worthy.
