Wishing all my readers a very Happy Diwali and a Prosperous New year! “Diwali” is the Hindu New Year and is also known as the Festival of Lights. It stands for the triumph of good over evil, truth over falsehood, and light over darkness. “Diwali” is celebrated by lighting “Diyas” as seen in the picture above, bursting firecrackers, preparing Indian sweets and desserts, exchanging gifts with family and friends. “Rangoli Cookies” – It is believed that “Laxmi” the Hindu Goddess of wealth and prosperity comes to every home on “Diwali” night.

Pear, Apple And Cranberry Crisp- Recipe by Ina Garten- Serves 8 to 10Last weekend we had some close friends over for dinner. Since the majority of my friends coming over were vegetarian I made this pear, apple and cranberry crisp. There’s something about fruity desserts. Simply love them! This crisp has orange zest, lemon zest, orange and lemon juice, cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg which really enhances the flavor of the fruit. It’s topped with a mixture of oatmeal, light brown sugar, flour and butter. It’s really amazing! I hope you try it out. Peel and core the pears and apples and cut them into large chunks. Place the fruit in a large bowl and toss with the cranberries, . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

Mermaid Cookies- Happy Birthday Ellison!

IMG_8408

I recently made these cookies for a sweet girl who just turned 6. She wanted aquamarine cookies. No Theme. The first thing that came to my mind was mermaids. Luckily, she loves mermaids too! I first iced the cookies in white, after they were completely dry, then airbrushed them with a mix of Americolor sheen sky blue and leaf green. The polka dot stencil is from The Cookie Countess. Then drew the mermaids using my Kopykake projector and edible pens. First filled the tails, then the hair and eyes. Finally the skin color. After that was dried I put some edible pink dust on her cheeks and drew the mouth with a red edible pen. All the mermaids drying . . . CLICK TO READ MORE
