Let Them Drink Cake... Martinis! (my happy birthday cocktail)

It's my birthday weekend! And we are sipping on Birthday Cake Martini's tonight to celebrate!

I basically just looked at our bar and grabbed every bottle of alcohol that makes me go "yummmmm!" (stuff that I would drink straight up)and put it all in one glass!

Birthday Cake Martini

2 ounces Cake Vodka (Three Olives brand)
1/2 ounce Amaretto
1 ounce Creme de Cacao
1 1/2 ounces Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
2 ounces Heavy Cream
Frosting (for the rim of the glass)
Sprinkles!!!  (for the rim of the glass)

Well here's to another awesome year and my last birthday as a single lady! 
Happy Birthday to ME! Cheers!

Peanut Butter Cookies For Puppy; Happy Birthday Samardzija!

It's Birthday time again at our place. Our birthday's are close together starting with our adorable Samardzija Puppy!

I decided to stray from her usual cupcake birthday treat and make her some peanut butter puppy cookies to celebrate!

Peanut Butter Puppy Cookies
1 cup no salt added peanut butter
2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon baking powder

Combine ingredients, roll out to 1/4 inch thickness on flour surface and cut out with desired shapes. Place cookies on baking sheet lined with Silpat or lightly sprayed with Pam cooking spray. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

Samardzija Puppy loved her homemade birthday treats! She has lots of leftovers packed away in the fridge, so for the next few weeks, her celebration will continue.

Happy Birthday Samardzija... I loved you!
