Lavender Cookies


 I have no idea if Lavender is good or bad for dogs.

In yesterdays post I mentioned that I had baked Lavender cookies.
In 2004, my sister Cathy and I had a girls trip to Park City, Utah.
We went in all the shops while there. One quaint shop
had lavender cookies on the counter for guest.
I've been hooked sense then.

A few of you asked if I would share the recipe.



Preheat oven to 375 F  ( 191 C )


1/2      cup butter room temperature

1         cup sugar

2         eggs

1/2      teaspoon vanilla extract

1         teaspoon dried lavender blossoms

1 1/2   cups all purpose flour

2         teaspoons baking powder

           In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

           Beat in the eggs, vanilla and lavender and mix well.

           Combine the flour and baking powder and add to the lavender mixture. Stir well.

          Drop by teaspoons into an ungreased baking sheet and bake 8 to 10 minutes
          or until lightly browned around the edges.  ( to drop I use a small melon baller )

           Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a minute or two before removing.
           Enjoy alone or with tea or ice cream.

  Note: I use Organic lavender flowers purchased at amazon.
I am not an Amazon affiliate and do not receive any compensation.

Thanks for asking Princess Leah.

Spring Fever Time Change.

                OMD OMC The sun came out today here in Washington.
            We hope Spring is going to show up soon.
           It get's boring waiting for the rain to stop.
           Some times mom makes Lavender Cookies for her and I get none.

Don't tell my ma, but dad gave me a bite.
They are very good. I wanted more but he said no,
ma might find out then there will be trouble.

One day while I was sleeping,  I heard mom telling dad
that the bunnies, lambs & eggs were coming out of storage.
I just laughed cause we all know it's taken my ma six months
to unpack the garage. So there was a slight chance of any
bunnies showing up at our house and eggs well they are in the refrigerator!
Mom said you have to have a little hope

With Hope there is Faith

I see candy.... Wait I mean I see JOY.

Then there is happiness.
Ma finally caught me on camera.

Hawk and Roscoe.

            Guess what?
No, mom and dad didn't adopt another dog but wait keep reading.
My crazy mother surf's the internet reading stuff when she should be
cleaning out the 87 million boxes in the garage from last June when we moved!!!!

While surfing she came across Hawk and Roscoe.
She also stole their picture with out permission.

While mom is not the official greeter of Blogville. We didn't want anyone to miss out
having a few new friends. So go ahead and surf over to their bloggie and say Howdy.

I am having a play day.

HELLO, Can you hear me?

   Is anyone still reading my bloggie?

Me and Mom are hanging out in the house.
Our weather has been super cold, in the low 20's at night and the mid 30's in the day.
We even have some snow on the ground now.
My mom doesn't like it at all, and tomorrow she will be at work.

 You all know I hate the camera right?
That's the reason for not posting. I read everyone's bloggie everyday.
Looks like you all had a fun time in Paris. Then today was a every sad day of news.
Our friend Sarge went to the Rainbow Bridge. We have wet eyes and are so sorry for
his family.

Here are a few photos mom managed to get of me and some of my toys.

I don't see any dust on the furniture.lol 

      Thanks for still visiting me. We hope when the weather gets better we can be outside more.

Ringing in the New Year

      We are Ringing in the New Year hanging out in front of the warm fireplace.
      Mommy fell in the black ice and hurt herself. Dad heard her yelling for help
      but couldn't find her. She was flat on her back outside her car. Dad called the EMT's
      to come to the house.  I thought she was making snow angles.
      Mom is going to be okay, her hands are bloody and her hip is bruised up pretty bad.
      If you don't hear from us for a few days..... We'll be back soon.

The Wild Child and his Mom.
