Greek Orzo Salad
October 23, 2014

I 'm not a big fan of orzo.  However, this salad is so amazing it doesn't even matter.  I'm also quite critical of anything labeled Greek.  I lived in Greece and my grandmother cooked for me and nothing (except for my mom's cooking) could ever live up to her cooking).  This salad is so fresh and tasty.  I get requests for it whenever we have birthday parties or baby showers.  The only thing I would recommend is not putting the dressing on until the very last minute because the orzo absorbs it.  If you keep the salad overnight you can just jazz it up again with lemon and olive oil.  It's a great party dish. click here for a looksy

Simple Sugar Cookies
October 19, 2014

Everytime I make these simple sugar cookies, I get compliments.  I'm not the greatest decorator as you can see but recently I received a compliment from a baker.  The recipe makes ALOT of dough so I freeze half of it with saranwrap around it.  Also, they are easier to make when the dough is refridgerated.  They taste yummy but my son has the most fun rolling and cutting out shapes and putting sprinkles on them.  It's a great activity for us.  I put the cookies in the bag and take them to the park to dish out.  I can't keep them in the house!!! click here for the recipe
