Adventures in baking with Cyra

I spent the afternoon lazy-ing around with this gorgeous lady πŸ™‚

Then after watching 1/2 an episode of “Hoarders” I felt the need to do something productive, first off pick more oranges.

I only got 1 bagful since rain does not equal clean oranges. Rain equals slugs and snails all over the orange tree.

I finally got around to using the oranges in a recipe. It was some sort of orange cookie recipe I got off foodnetwork.com. However I made a HUGE mess in the process.

I like making cookies “2-bite” size. So I ended up with 72 cookies. I had quite an assembly line going on.

In the end they tasted amazing! Kinda like Madeline’s. Totally worth the 2 1/2 hours of effort. (kinda)

Cyra was a huge help…

After all that work I picked up Carlo and we hit our favorite frozen yogurt place.

I tried lemon for the first time. It was so delicious!

What kind of cookies do you like to bake?

Do you have a professional helper, like Cyra?

Cheers!
