 orange poppy grouporange poppies
I spent a few minutes yesterday last week (edit- failed attempt at figuring out scheduling posts! I finally figured it out today) playing in Illustrator and this is what I came up with!
I also used the pretty poppies to finally make a new blog banner! What do you think? I think it's much better.

Glazed Lemon Cookies

lemon glazed cookies

For our friends Christian and Eve's wedding, they didn't have a traditional cake, or any cake actually! Instead, a bunch of us each contributed desserts, including cookies, cupcakes and brownies. I made glazed lemon cookies using this recipe and they were quite tasty. Even though my glaze didn't turn out like the pictures it still tasted good, and had a good amount of tart lemon flavor to balance out the sweet. The lemons were from the tree in our backyard, and one of them had a sprouted seed inside! I had no idea lemon seeds did that! Of course, I forgot to take a picture of the final product, arranged all nicely on the platter, so you only get to see the cookies in progress and my cute owlie kitchen timer.

Christian & Eve's Wedding Photobooth Fun!

Our friends Eve and Christian just got married, and they had the most beautiful, fun wedding at Lake Temescal. There were laughs and tears and wine and dancing and a photobooth! It was so much fun! Our friend Steve made the photobooth (with the help of the groom) and he put together the above video from the resulting photos and it's just about the best thing ever. Congrats Christian and Eve!!
