A spot just for me! I can't wait to see all the delicious goodies already! Sorry for the delay, but here's the lovely package I received from Koreena!

The whole thing, look at all the corks!:


Delicious cookies:


This is blurrier than I realized, but on the left is "Salty Chocolate/Peanut Butter Chip with Pretzel cookies," which happen to be the same ones I sent her (they look completely different... according to pinterest I didn't use enough flour?), and the ones on the right are "Peanut butter chocolate pies" which I loved too! Neither of them lasted very long... if you look closely at the first picture you can see a hole... she had packed it full but my BF and I dug in as soon as we opened it!


And a close up of the extra, a really cool airship ornament:


Thanks again, I loved everything!

My spot... for cookies!

Sweetyetevil sent me a towel that hangs from my oven (specially designed so it won't fall off which mine always do!), a 'stash ornament and COOKIES!

We have pretzel cookies

And nutella cookies

and my goofy kid 'stashing himself after a few to many cookies!


Thanks again, Sweetyetevil, those cookies were YUMMY!!!  Will post recipes shortly (goofy child is sugar crashing so have to deal with him).  And thanks, Purplepaisley for hosting Smiley

Yay so I received from JL409! 

Here's a pic of the yummies and extras!


So clockwise from the top:
Ranger cookies.  Great recipe that tastes like a mix between sugar cookies and oatmeal cookies with coconut for texture, but you can't taste it really.  I like coconut but the guy doesn't but he can't get enough of these cookies! Smiley
Snowman bag with Emeril Pecans! 
And I'm not sure of what these are...I'm guessing a chocolate peppermint blondie?  I took a pic of the cute tin, and then a pic with the treats.  By the time I realized I didn't take one with the lid showing we had eaten all of the goodies!
And my AWESOME extras!  Ornament, buttons, a mug and 3 things fabric!  When I first saw the fabric I made a joke that I should make pajamas for my kittens because they are so cute and coordinating (and they're sibs) Wink  But no worries the fabric will probably show up in a Christmas collage or ornament!

Thank you so much JL!  I hope the new job is going GREAT for you!

I received the perfect package from goddessgarb. I am swooning!
First: here is the whole package.


There were two boxes of yummy cookies. Let me tell you, the ginger ones... to die for. And she wrote up a whole herby goodness report to go with it, all about the health benifits of the cookies. (Did you know I am an herbalist? I am!)

Then there were two fabulous blank books. The purple one makes me so happy!


A business card holder with majong tiles. I am already cooking up ideas for those!
 

It just made my whole day to get such a delightful package! What a wonderful swap and a fantastic partner! (Sorry the pics are so huge... in the middle of moving... having typical technical issues)

Okay, so I looked again and found the gallery!  Kfad's package for me got here this morning and I feel so indulged.  She sent almond biscotti, chocolate oatmeal cookies, ephemera, and some board books!  Here's the whole bounty:



After a bad week, this really cheered me up so much.  Of the cookies, I was surprised to say the biscotti is my favorite.  It's so almond-elicious.  I LOVE almonds, and these taste so delicate and fresh and awesome. 



And the ephemera is really special.  Most of it is from Oregon, my favorite place. 



The brownish postcard you can't see very well just down left on the top is Baker City, Oregon in 1866.  My partner and I were commenting that was before Lonesome Dove or Little House times!  Just amazing.  And that postcard upper left, of the woman with flowers, is from 1916 and has a mysterious little note on it that says, "I suppose Glynne has told you the news.  If she hasn't, ask her what I got into down here.  ha ha."  We'll never know!  It's a forever mystery.  How neat is that?  I love it.  And she got me 3 thrifted board books to use in my art journaling!  I told her I was exploring board books to alter, and these 3 are just perfect.  I've shown the second two open so any art journalers can see what lovely spread-shapes they provide.  And the top one is a tunnel book with a big eyeball in the center that will show up in every spread!  And I didn't realize until I snapped the picture that the dinosaur is maliciously peeking over the others, just like the raptor in Jurassic Park!!!  Clever girl. 



And I love the gothiness of the purple tag, and I just love black, white, and red spreads so that other big tag on text is just great.  I love it all.  Every little bit.

I LOVE this package.  Kfad, I feel so blessed to be your first swap partner because you have been just excellent, and I will have some fun putting your package together to send out this week.  Thank you!

Sour cream drops...those sound delicious!!! Biscotti mmmm Love the elf apron too. I am baking one more type of cookie tonight and sending out tomorrow. I had some guys test the others at work and now I have to bake another batch...one of them said it was the best cookie he ever ate...hmmm not sure if he just wanted more and was sucking up lol but I will make some more!! I am on a strict diet so I could not have one. Gotta follow the rules so I can only have certain things on certain days. The results better be worth it lol

Sorry for taking so long to post this - I actually "posted" yesterday but then hit the wrong button and the page refreshed...  Nearly tossed the laptop, but decided to put it away for a while instead Wink

Here are the DElicious cookies that Alchamy513 sent to me LAST week


On the left are the same cookies that I sent to her... I literally laughed out loud when I opened the box & saw the recipe for my new/only favourite cookies sitting on top! YYYuuummmmyyyy salty chocolate peanut butter cookies.  So good.

On the right is some even more salty & delicious chocolate pretzel bark.  Oh how I wish I had more of this right now!!!  I just checked my Pinterest food board & your Pinterest food board, Alchamy...  I don't see this on either?  Maybe you can link to the recipe when you see this?  Or maybe it's some homemade awesomeness that isn't on Pinterest yet... If it is, you should really get it online!   Wink  Too good to keep to only us!

Here is the very cute xmassy tin that the goodies were in, along with the absolutely perfect & much needed pastry brush that she sent for me Smiley  The tin is being reused as I type (brought it into work with baked goods today!) and has been admired by all.  The pastry brush will be tested out this weekend.


Thank you for a great swap!!  So glad I joined again this year Smiley

Happy holidays everyone!!

I didn't know you are an herbalist!  That's wonderful.  Everyone laughs at my 'overkill' explanation on those cookies, but I found and redesigned that recipe when I was studying herbalism and holistic nutrition, and I specifically wanted to make cookies that were DELICIOUS and that tapped into the amazing benefits of those spices.  Cheesy

Oh, I definitely want all these recipes!!!  Here are mine (If you want the nutritional info, just ask, it's a bit long to post all of it here, I think!)

Heavenly Ginger Spice Cookies
(makes 4 dozen small cookies)
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup blackstrap molasses
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. sea salt
raw sugar for rolling them in

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together mixer until creamed together.
3. Add the molasses and mix well.
4. Mix the water with the baking soda, then add that and mix well.
5. Sift (or mix together with a whisk really well) the flour, salt, and spices.
6. Add dry ingredients to wet, and mix well.
7. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls (roll between palms of your hands) and then roll in raw sugar (in a bowl). If they're too sticky to handle, add a little flour.
8. Place on cookie sheet covered with a piece of parchment paper (makes for SUPER EASY cleanup, which we all love!) about 2 inches apart. If you want thin and crispy cookies (snaps) flatten slightly, otherwise leave in balls to make small, fat, soft cookies.
9. Bake for about 10 - 12 minutes.

Makes a little over 4 dozen small, or 3 dozen medium cookies!

...

Healthy No-Bake Cookie Balls
(makes 24 walnut-size balls)
3 tablespoons  milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup wheat germ (heaping)
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1 cup quick oatmeal
Directions:
1.  Heat milk, sugar and cocoa powder over high heat until boiling, stirring constantly.
2.  Take off heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter; stir until peanut butter has melted completely.
3.  Stir in wheat germ and oatmeal.
4.  Drop by large spoonfuls onto wax paper or eat immediately.

For these, it's best to make small balls, a bit smaller than a walnut, and refrigerate them to set them up, and keep them in refrigerator to keep them firm.  When they're that small, you can just pop them in your mouth so they don't fall apart at all.  You can easily substitute a nondairy milk or use other nut butters, too, btw.  Wink

Those are "fluffy lemon bars"  A pinterest find that is ultra easy!
I also put a set of measuring spoons in with the cups...the blend in!  I have the same set of both and I really like them.  I still have a plastic set of cups just in case, but they hide in the back of the drawer.
