In the Mood for Cookies and Milk

I have a craving for milk and cookies! Any type of cookies and some 2% milk.  Yumm..  I never thought there was a taste difference in whole milk, 2%, 1%, whatever.  I thought it was all the same until I worked at Baskin Robbins from ages 16-21. My mom always bought whole milk. At Baskin Robbins we served 2% so that person ordering a large milk shake that has like 1300 calories in it can feel at ease that at least they are getting 2% milk.  Anyway I came to tell a difference, and to me there is nothing a big glass of 2% milk.
Bakerella made these fantastic cookies.  Bakerella really knows how to make you hungry!  I swear, with her photography skills that woman could make a bug look appetising!

Milk and cookies are good all year long.  Summer, Fall, Winter, or Spring.

And here Bakerella makes the perfect combination of cookies, milk, and a nice summer treat.

Teal Cupcakes

There is a super special place in my heart for yummy cupcakes with teal colored frosting.  Growing up, we got to celebrate birthdays at school. I have a summer birthday so all the summer birthdays celebrated together right before the last day of school.  This was back when homemade treats were more than welcome in schools.  Every year my mom would make beautiful white cupcakes with teal frosting.  Sometimes we had purple or peach but most of the time they were teal. They were so beautiful and it was really hard walking into school with a box full of these fantastic little treats and not eat one, or maybe two.  The only thing that kept you from eating one on the way into school is the simple little fact that you wanted your friends to see the masterpiece that YOUR mom created! It was wonderful!  Too bad I won't be able to send homemade teal cupcakes with my kids to school.  Homemade treats are no longer welcome in schools because too many kids have food allergies.

Monkey Cake

Ok...I promise not all of my Breezie's Cakes end up on this blog just the ones I love.  This cake was super fun!  It is for a baby boy baby shower!  The monkeys broke into the banana crate and are eating all the bananas!  So much fun!  Enjoy!  (I'm not sure that the pictures do this cake justice...)
