Whimsical Woodland Animal Cookies

Pin It

I made this adorable, 100% edible, whimsical woodland scene as a special project I did for Family Fun magazine. It is a really fun and simple, no-bake project that would be great for a woodland themed birthday party, or a fun Christmas time edible scene. Each piece is made out of simple ingredients, such as chocolate covered cookies, caramel chews and vanilla tootsie rolls. So get creative and have fun creating a whole forrest full of sweet little critter cookies!

Cutting the fat and calories of your Thanksgiving dishes

Pin It



From appetizers, to turkey, sides and desserts, I think I consume more food on Thanksgiving than I do in a few days combined. When going back for seconds, why not make it a little more healthy by using a butter substitute, to cut some of the fat and calories? Country Crock Spreads contain 0g trans fat per serving and have no cholesterol per serving, so it’s easy to feel good about using them in the kitchen this Thanksgiving.

One of the recipes on my Thanksgiving menu that I swapped butter for Country Crock Spread is my Spiced Maple Butter recipe, for a perfect, guilt free, way to serve bread and biscuits.
