You should be happy I had a birthday because I got a HUGE cookie recipe book for my birthday and the recipes are amazing!  I already tried one, snickerdoodle cookies, and they were so yummy!  My uncle’s wife is really sick and is at UVA so my uncle is back and forth so I sent some with him.  It’s the simple things that mean the most. 🙂  My mom made my birthday cake which was very sweet.  She didn’t think it was “fancy enough” but I loved it and I loved that she made it for me!  I had a wonderful birthday!  I’ll be posting recipes soon!  ~bakerista~
