Christmas in July cookies 2021

 I love Christmas cookies and I think July is the perfect time to start thinking about Christmas baking. Maybe there is an old recipe you haven't prepared in a while or maybe there is something you would like to learn to bake.

Time goes by so quickly that, and before you know it Christmas time will be here soon!

For this Christmas in July, I made several cookies inspired in the Elf on the Shelf. Although that is a tradition that we don't have in our house, I love the Elf and I think it is very retro and reminds me about the toys that were in-style when I was a little girl.  I remember that some of my friends had this Elf, but I don't think that they ever followed the tradition of leaving them hidden around the house.

YAY! 

Finally I got the time to put together a cookie decorating class for all of you! 

Summer is the perfect time to start learning something new and have time to practice what you have learned.

In this class I will teach you everything you will need to know to start baking and decorating cookies. 

When I was putting the class together I thought that this will be a great activity to do it with kids, so I am explaining everything very well, so every one can do it, if you have never make cookies or icing, not a problem, the step by step instructions will guide you along the way!

High school Re-June-ion Party favors 2021


It never crossed my mind that I would have a high school reunion living in a different country from where I grew up, but it HAPPENED… and it was in June! So I am not kidding when I said it was a Re-June-ion!

This was such a beautiful event in my life, growing up in Mexico in a small town, you kind of go to the same school from kindergarten to high school and your friends become a very special part of your life, because besides watching you grow, they share almost the same experiences, and have the same values.

Oddly enough, four of my friends that live in the US now live in the same city and three of them even live in my neighborhood! And even more odd, three of us grew up living the same street! Weird right?



So you can imagine how many experiences we have shared together and how exciting it was meeting them after more than 30 years!!


Due to the pandemic we changed the date of the reunion so many times and finally agreed to meet in early June. It was not in my mind to make cookies for this important event, I was so excited that I didn't think cookie for once in my life. A few hours before the reunion, I had the idea of making some photo cookies and started gathering the pictures. I always have cookie dough and royal icing ready, so I put my self in action and made the cookies!
