Cookies for our dentist

I remember sitting in 9th grade homeroom with my friend Jeff and talking about what we wanted to be when we grew up . . . he told me he wanted to be a dentist.  I have no idea what I said I wanted to be (I'm pretty sure it wasn't HR consultant/cookie baker/mom but I digress), but he knew from early on exactly what he wanted to do, and he did it!.   Now he is a great pediatric dentist, one that takes fabulous care of my kids . . . and makes it worth a long drive to his office!   Today was our semi-annual visit, and I decided to surprise him and his staff with some tooth and toothbrush cookies.  I bought these cutters a few months ago just for this purpose, and I love how they turned out.

Jeff's wife is also a dentist, and they have three kids.  I figured a family with two dentists would enjoy personalized toothbrush cookies, so I made a little set of them for him to take home. 

Jeff has been a huge supporter of my 3 Day walks - not only through donations, but also by joining us for part of the route each year as we walk through his DC neighborhood.  This little gift is a token of my appreciation for a friendship that has spanned almost 30 years and his ongoing support.  It means a lot.

50th Anniversary Cookies

I made this platter for a surprise 50th anniversary celebration.  I love personalizing cookies to really fit the recipients!  When chatting with the couple's daughter-in-law, I found out that Cherry loves pink flamingos and Bill loves to fish.    We decided to included some cherries (for obvious reasons) and some cookies with "WW" on them, as that's a nickname her husband uses for his dad.   I added a few more traditional 50th anniversary cookies - wedding cakes and champagne glasses - and some hearts, and what was a very odd assortment of themes turned into a fun party platter!
Thank you for the donation, Abigayle and Mark!  So glad the party was a success!

80's cookies

This was a fun platter to make!  My friend Rachelle asked me to make an 80's themed platter to help celebrate her 30th birthday . . . she was born in the 80's (1983 to be exact, the year I started high school - eek!)   After I got over the OLD feeling this request created, I got to work brainstorming!

Rachelle asked for boom boxes and rubiks' cubes . . . and left the rest to me.  Here's what I came up with.  I also had an Atari logo, but I see it didn't make it into either picture!

Happy birthday Rachelle!   I heard your party was a huge success!  Thank you for the donation!
