This is a journal of my food escapades. I'm a real person and a busy mom here to offer up meal ideas to those searching for something new. I love food and the whole process of creating a meal. I rarely eat or make anything that I don't think is really delicious. Let's cook together!

Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
The holidays are over but it's been hard for me to let go. I took down my tree on January 2nd, the Santa cookie jar has been put away and the wreath on my door has been replaced by a non-seasonal welcome sign. It's the holiday-style eating that I can't seem to shake!
I think I have developed some sort of addiction to eating rich, salty or fried foods and especially desserts. Today will be no exception. I have decided to make a nice sugar cookie dough so that the kids and I can make fun cutout cookies. But instead of gingerbread people and candy cane shapes, we will be making butterflies and animals. Hey, it's a start.
I found a great sugar cookie dough online. I was able to make some cookies and put the remaining dough in the refrigerator. Now I can have fresh baked cookies whenever we want. Wait, that may not be the best thing for my waistline.
