Birthday Cookies

i was out voted by the children's chant of chocolate.

i wanted regular shortbread but that's not what happened.

so daniel got dark chocolate shortbread cookies on wednesday. he is now an old man of double threes. i know i know i am a cradle robber but you cant go wrong with a younger man. he also saw ai's caramel banana cake and gave me the sad blue eye treatment so you know what i will be cooking up this weekend or next week.home made caramel with sea salt is bad bad bad so sick good delicious your mouth is in ecstasy. remember when i made it earlier in the year? im still trying to forget.


  1. Hahaha, you are surrounded by people with pretty eyes! They use their powers to control you. :P

    I am a fan of regular shortbread. I think shortbread is best when you're not distracted away from the delicious taste of BUTTER.

  2. hahaha...
    yes i am conrtrolled by eyes....
    and i couldnt agree with you more.

  3. your shortbread must be heavenly.... and I clicked on your link... the caramel!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!! I need to try that :D

  4. Do you say cradle robber in English, too? I have a Spanish gay friend who is called that by his friends, and I thought that was the funniest expression. Also I think my mom, who is 6 yrs senior to my dad, would disagree with your statement about a younger man, haha!

  5. mmm shortbread with the perfect piping hot cup of tea, no kids and a great book! it's been awhile...
    happy birthday pops!
    daniel and i scored big. we both live with great cooks who take care of us.
    cradle robbers!!! haaaaaa

  6. kim you and daniel certainly did!! its been awhile for me too! but the weather is changing its almost jasmine green tea time.

    yes ai we use that expression here too. hahaahaa i think all women think that about their husbands regardless of age. i am eight years older than mine.
