EMT Cookies

I am so proud of my guy!

He was recently offered a job with a private EMT company after about 2 years of hard work in school! Though he’s got more training ahead of him before he can start the job for real, I decided to throw him a little celebration at a local bar to let him know how proud we all are of him.

In preparation, I decided to make some sugar cookies. I had found multiple cute designs online for EMTs and nurses and wanted to make them. Of course, we all know that my art skills are lacking so, they din’t come out as well as the pictures but I was still happy with them!

I used mostly circular cookie cutters (how cute are the ones above?!) and cut some hearts out as well.

Once cooled, I frosted the circular cookies with a white base coat and the hearts with a red base coat.

After the first layer of frosting had dried, I got to decorating the details. I was most proud of the heart cookies that I decorated with a heart rhythm.

The other designs were definitely more sloppy and required more artistic ability than I had but I still thought they were fun and they were definitely yummy!

Sweetly,

Banana Crumb Muffins

Ohhhh my gosh, y’all. 

I have been locked out of my website…. once again! Obviously, I am not a tech master but things keep going haywire without me lifting a finger. Anyway, I finally got it fixed and I am back! I’m going to keep it simple tonight with these Banana Crumb Muffins but there are a lot more goodies to come!

They were made exactly as regular banana muffins would be except for the crumble and glaze/sauce.

I poured the batter into a greased muffin tin and made the crumble by combining flour, brown sugar and peanut butter.

Once combined, I sprinkled the batter in the tins with it and then placed the muffins in the oven.

While the muffins baked, I made the glaze which consisted of melted white chocolate and milk – easy!

The muffins came out golden brown and smelling of banana and peanut butter.

I let them cool for as long as I could and then drizzled the white chocolate glaze on top.

Since I am not the biggest fan of bananas, I thought that the crumble and glaze added a nice distraction, if you will, from the banana flavors. I would definitely make these again!

Sweetly,

Simona
