Sunday Smiles 12.16.12


Today  I went to a Tampa Bay Lady Bloggers Cookie Swap! OhMyGoodness. So many cookies! I have been busy cooking these Chocolate Chip Cookies from Cup of Joe (ie. one of my fave blogs). Unfortunately when I went to make the dough I didn’t have any cake flour so I swapped it out with AP flour. I did use the bread flour though. The rest of it I kept the same except I used Ghirdelli semi sweet chocolate chips instead of chocolate bark. Also, I think my oven just sucks and they didn’t come out with the crispy edges like they did in the blog.


We each baked 2-3 cookies per atendee plus an extra tray for tasting the cookies.

Here is my set up at the party for the tasting tray:


I love these chalk boards the hostess bought for labeling the cookies.

SOOO many cookies.


These peppermint oreo balls were my fave :)

We voted on the best tasting, best looking, neatest ingredient, and best over all cookie. Here is the hostess reading the winners.



Then we were given bags and  boxes in order to put together large goodie bags of cookies to take home. Don’t ask me what I am gonna do with 100 cookies that I now have.

I know it’s the end of the year because time is just flying by. I can’t believe another Sunday Smiles is upon us. So here we go!

Hanukkah is over but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to look at gift guides. I want all these books on this Holiday Cookbook Guide…or this one.

Oh wait, here’s a holiday gift guide for a crossfitter

The Stages of Getting Addicted to Homeland made me LOL.

Links to some cute office supplies.

Cute Menorah - maybe for next year?

Crockpot Cheeseburgers - I AM OBSESSED with blog. Like if you look at my foodie pinboard you’ll see just how many things from this blog I pinned, like this Smoky Sweet Potato Burgers.

Blast it stress playlist

Gift Wrapping Station makes me happy. If only I had the patience to put this together.

Burlap Silverware Pouch would be fun to make for a dinner party.

On the lookout for a ladder.

Now we’re watching TED the movie because there is nothing else to watch! It’s actually pretty funny!

About S2S

I've always been somewhat concerned with getting physical activity and eating healthy. My parents were always doing active things with my sister and I growing up and cooking good foods for us. I work out 6 days a week and recently began to get serious about it! I'm just learning how to cook and so far it's been fun. I enjoy hanging out with my husband, my family, and my puppy in Tampa. I got my undergraduate degree in Finance but after two years in the corporate world I have decided to go back to school at USF to become a teacher. It has been the best decision of my life, aside from marrying my husband! I travel to Orlando and Boca Raton frequently to visit the in laws. I'm always up for new challenges and am always willing to try something once. From running in my sneakers to walking the beach in my sandals - I'll share all my adventures with you. Enjoy!
