I know it has been a while since I've posted and I figured I'd pop in and say hello. Thank you all so much for your kind words about TJ and I'm so happy to say he's doing so much better. It was really stressful taking care of him but he's done a total 180 and is like a brand new dog! My sister in law has been calling me the puppy whisperer, ha! :) I'm just glad that he is feeling better, there is nothing worse that looking at a sad puppy face and not knowing how to help.
I don't have a ton to show you but I figured I'd share some adorable cookies I made for my friend! We have been friends for probably about 15 years now and she is the best. She lives in Massachusetts so we don't get to see each other often but she is in NY for the long weekend and we were able to meet up :) Her birthday is in September so I wanted to have her gift in time for this visit so I spent some time baking up part of her gift last night and I'm so happy with how it came out!
How adorable are these cookies?!! I seriously think I'm stuck at the age of 5 because whenever I think of birthdays I think of rainbow sprinkles... I guess I just think they are fun and festive! ;) Her wedding anniversary is also coming up so I thought it would be nice for her and her hubby to have a treat to share.
I used the recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and I just added a whole bunch of rainbow sprinkles for a pop of color and fun. I think they came out so cute!
I'm sure I've said this before but this chocolate chip cookie recipe is amazing. The middle is chewy and tender and there is a little crispiness around the edges. It's exactly how I want my chocolate chip cookies to be.
These are the cookies after they were all wrapped up! It's simple but cute and definitely a great way to deliver some tasty cookies.
In addition to the cookies I made my friend this bracelet. The craftsmanship isn't really great as it's only the second bracelet I've made in this style but I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I love the beads, they have pretty little flowers on them.
Rounding out the gift is Big Shampoo from Lush. The last time she was in town we stopped in at Lush because I had told her about this shampoo and they were kind enough to give her a sample and she mentioned to me that she liked it so I went and picked some up for her :)
We went out for dinner tonight at Wild Fig which is one of our favorite restaurants here on Long Island. They make really great food and by far the best hummus ever. I had a salad with falafel and it was great but I didn't get a picture of it. It was delicious though!
So that's all I have for you! I don't know if you find this interesting but I had a lot of fun putting this gift together and I thought it would be fun to share :) I hope you are all doing well and are having a great weekend!
