Cooks in Action

We are very excited about the new baby that will be making its grand entrance at the end of September.  For those that were interested in more information I am 13 weeks along and I was really sick, but I'm feeling great now.  In the meantime, life continues on with our regular routine.
Brandon has been flexing his creative muscles again and put together an instructable for St. Patrick's Day.  With the inspiration of one of our favorite local restaurants, Off the Waffle, he made this shamrock shaped Liege waffle and topped it with mozzarella cheese, basil, tomato and avocado.  When I tasted it I almost cried.  You can find it here if you are interested in some good eats.

 I busted out the kid's seasonal cookbook that I adored when I was little.  We made leprechaun snacks which left a lot to be desired.  I have been learning that the "healthy treats" that you usually find as activities for kids usually don't end up really being healthy or tasty.  The only success really with this attempt was that it was, in fact, green.  It was worth it though just to bring out my old cookbook and to spend an hour yelling at the girls for not following directions.  Later that night Rocky kept talking about the apricot snacks that we made.  I corrected her because we had used pineapple and not apricots.  She said, "You know, apricots, those little mans that steal gold."
This photo demonstrates another, more fruitful labor from last week when we made brownies.  There was no claim to health benefits, but I can assure you that they tasted fantastic.  Just look at those smiles. 
Bonus Picture:  I walked into the bathroom and this is what I saw.  It struck my as funny.

If my girls saw that picture I believe the only question they would ask is, "Why is she wearing a shirt?"
