Color makes me happy!

Isn't this picture great?

I really don't know much about this photographer other than her name and I've seen a few things that she's done. She is amazing... I think she's European. I've googled her but not much comes up...Her work is similar to what you would see on America's Next Top Model or in CITY magazine... Really crazy fun stuff!

She's definatly one to watch.... I 'll post more of her photos at another time...

Sneaky Snickers Cookies

Laura Flowers from Moscow Idaho is a photographer and cook... 2 of my favorite and food!

You must make these melt in your mouth cookies and then give her a shout out on her blog to thank her for this delicious recipe... Here is the link to her site

I think I'm going to make them again today and enjoy one this afternoon with a cup of tea...

Sneaky Snickers Cookies

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
1 cup creamy peanut butter (Jiff)
1/2 teaspoon salt1 cup dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon real vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 (11.5 ounce) bags Snickers Miniatures (Half a bag is for snacking during cooking making.)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a food processor, process together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, and vanilla extract until fluffy. Scrap the bowl down as needed. Add the eggs and baking soda and pulse to combine.

3. Transfer to a stand mixer, add the flour and beat until just incorporated. Don’t over mix.

4. Wrap the dough in wax paper and store in a covered container. Refrigerate for 2 hours or more before baking.

5. Unwrap 52 mini Snickers bars. Then with a standard cookie scoop (size 50), scoop the dough into your hand. Press the dough together and flatten. Place a Snickers bar in the center of the dough and push the dough around to seal.

6. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets and bake for about 12 minutes. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks.

Makes 52 cookies.

pretty in pink...

Don't you love this very retro coke bottle? How great would these be in a teenager's room all lined up in different colors...

found on a London based website called
Thrift Deluxe

You can do this yourself at home...It is the easiest DIY project ever...

Drink the contents of the bottle and rinse out
Pour PVA paint color of your choice into bottle
Fill and then pour excess out
Lay bottle on its side and every 5 minutes, rotate bottle for 30 minutes and then let dry

Wouldn't this be a great birthday gift for a pre-teen/ teenager that your child could make themselves? They could give a set of 3 of them in different colors.... Very inexpensive and very cool! just a thought...
