Happy Cinco De Mayo! It is my nephew John's birthday party today, so my sister in law decided that she wanted to make something special for the party. She illicited my help to make Pinata cookies. I was intrigued. I checked out the recipe, and it looked like fun! Here are some pictures from our escapes to make these cookies!
Here are the colored doughs I decided to work with: yellow, green, orange, red, purple and blue. The dough was very easy to work with, sort of like playdough! It was easy to color with the gel food coloring. The dough gets spread in layers into your mold.
Sour Cream Coffee Cake The following recipe is my adaptation of a 5 star recipe found on the Food Network. This coffee cake pleased many people as they came to visit with Ella! This coffee cake recipe has become a staple of our weekend festivities.
