Valentines Day Prep

          I made these cookies today in preparation for Valentines Day.  I am sure they will be gone before then though.  Baking is one of my other loves (besides travel and fashion).  My favorite things to make are cakes and cookies.  I love making cookies because there are so many cute cookie cutters out there! I am starting to get a pretty big collection of fun cookie cutters.  I bought these heart shaped ones recently.  The set I got was from Walmart and it came with 5 different size hearts.  I've really only just begun to dabble in sugar cookie making.  I used to make all of the other types of cookies because sugar cookies are more time consuming.  
          To make these I just used a recipe that I found online.  You can find that HERE.  It's a really good recipe in my opinion.  To get chewy cookies I just made them a little bit thicker and took them out of the oven after 6-7 minutes.  The tiny ones I took out even sooner.  To frost them smoothly I just made my icing more liquid-y.  I used a piping bag and a thin round tip.  I am definitely no professional but I have been doing a little bit of research on decorating techniques.  For the piping, I used thicker icing after the base layer cooled.  
          I wanted to incorporate a few other topics into my blog, besides just fashion.  If you regularly read my blog you have probably noticed the beauty posts as well.  I will be doing another post for Valentines Day when the actual day gets closer.  It will be an outfit post so stay tuned!

  1. Catuaba has a long history of use in herbal medicine as an aphrodisiac. The Tupi Indians in Brazil first discovered the aphrodisiac qualities of the plant and over the last few centuries they have composed many songs praising its wonders and abilities.

  2. Clinical studies on catuaba also have shown results related to its antibacterial and antiviral properties. A 1992 study indicated that an extract of catuaba (Erythoxlyum catuaba) was effective in protecting mice from lethal infections of Escherichia coli and Staphlococcus aureus, in addition to inhibiting HIV significantly.
