For the aforementioned Memorial Day BBQ, I also made some chocolate chip cookies. I use the Cooks Illustrated recipe. These weren’t as chewy as usual, but still pretty darn good. I also painted the plate. Yes, it’s a plate specifically for chocolate chip cookies–I like them that much 🙂Details
Strawberry rhubarb pie is by far my favorite. Hubby and I had friends over for a BBQ for Memorial Day and I made pie because they had rhubarb at the store and lots of strawberries. It came out wonderfully delicious. Mmm . . . and I liked the star cutouts too 🙂 The pre-oven picture…Details
And it’s done! You can see it’s very reversible. I have it tied in the back on the left and in the front on the right. I love it and think it came out totally cute! Can’t wait to make more 🙂

I might post the pattern later. It holds a surprisingly large amount and it has a very wide shoulder strap so it’s actually quite comfortable even…Details
Risen grøt is basically sweet rice boiled in milk (we used lactaid for me). So, sorta like rice pudding. They eat it as an actual meal in Norway. Typically eaten as above with butter, sugar and cinnamon. It still tastes like dessert to me much as blintzes (which are a meal to me) taste like…Details
