How to Make American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies with Video Presentation

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I used to bake a decorate sugar cookies almost every day. That was about 10 years ago when I ran a small home based cookie business called Kudos Kookies. Notice anything familiar about the name? 😉

Now I only bake and decorate sugar cookies when I’m really in the mood, and when there is a special occasion. For me, Memorial Day and the 4th of July are just the types of special occasions which call for patriotic cookies. Especially when they’re these fun American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Surprise Strawberry Pie Cake with Cute Lattice Pie Crust Topping

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you here (as I always am). This recipe idea for Strawberry Orange Pie Cake is not my own. I saw it in one of my back issues of Food Network Magazine and thought it looked like something I wanted to try. I did, however, adapt the recipe ingredients and also put my own touch on the lattice pie crust topping with those cute little strawberry accents to up the cuteness factor.

Deliciously Easy Italian Sausage Caprese Sandwich

Since we live in the Midwest, my husband and I are all about sausages. He’s partial to Italian sausage, and I’m partial to bratwurst. I can easily eat a sausage without a bun to keep the carb level low, but he’s all about a bread and meat combo.
