Out Sick!

This past weekend my sister (Codename: Gamer Psychologist) flew back to Chicago from her practicum in Hawaii for her graduation from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She can now place those fun letters “Psy.D” after her name! She also went around all weekend referring to herself as Dr.-Gamer-Psychologist. Anyway, there were friends and family that came in town for her celebration, including my nieces (Codenames: Chunklet and Bacon Monster). However after all the commotion was said and done, I have no voice (from all the cheering!) and have a touch of bronchitis as well. As such, my response time to all your posts and an actual recipe post from me will be a bit behind. But, I promise to get caught up before the end of the week. In the meantime, please enjoy these Hello Kitty cookies I had to freehand in honor of Chunklet’s third birthday. I used Dorie Greenspan’s Grandma’s All-Occasion Sugar Cookie recipe and royal and gel icings to decorate.

    How pretty! That’s absolutely my favorite sugar cookie recipe. I made it over the holidays and used vanilla beans instead of extract. Gotta love those little flecks. Congrats to your sister and to all your family! I hope you feel better soon.

You never have to apologize or worry about being late or tardy with your Posts or comments. Just get better. Rest. Hang out with your boyfriend. Whatever it takes. I just enjoy reading your Posts and comments whenever they appear. I am amazed at all you do. And, congratulations to your Sis. Quite an accomplishment.
