P is for Pistachio Creme Macaron

  I was on this macaron kick last year where I painted a crapload of these decadent cookies AND baked them! My kids absolutely LOVED them (at first) and my kids friends came over and ate them and then went home and told THEIR moms "Hey, why don't you bake like Miss Jen does? You ...

O for “O.M.G…. Chocolate Raspberry Tart!”

  One of my favorite things to do is baking pastries for (mostly me) my friends. My favorite combination is chocolate and raspberries. (sigh). I would let my 8 year old twins invite ALL their cronies from school over to the house for an entire day just to eat one of these babies. (and that ...

L is for Lollipop all colorful and bright!

I is for “I Know, Another Ball Jar…”

  Yes, yet another ball jar painting... I have lost count as to how many I have done. It has become an obsession, I think. It is quite a challenge doing them. All the reflections in the glass, and the colors... Did I mention turquoise is my favorite? Yea... I can guarantee there will be ...

H is for Hot Chili Pepper, people!

Last year I grew lots of hot chili peppers in my garden. Man, they were SMOKING, I tell you. My teenager can vouch for them and their "hotness" as he and his buddies dared each other to eat a whole one. I don't think my son thought it would be asĀ scorchingĀ as it was. A gallon ...
