Cookies and Contests!! And Facebook, too.


SNEAKY SWEET

As you may remember, my pal Cristin Terrill set up an online bakery called Sneaky Sweet.  Well, she sent me some samples and Oh. My. Goodness.

SO GOOD. Every. Single. Cookie.

If you want a treat, I highly recommend checking her site out. And they'd make GREAT gifts for family/parties/etc.

The only downer is that a certain household member were given the job of taking pictures and said certain household member took two measly unartsy pictures and then scarfed half of each pack down before I could stop him certain household member! But maybe that works even better to let you know how delicious everything looked/tasted!! We ate them for dinner when we got home from Miami!

Here are the two measly shots that my husband certain household member took:



And because we didn't get pictures of the rest, here are the two other types she sent me in samples with photos from her own website:



So you KNOW your mouth is watering right now.  What are you waiting for? Go get you somehttp://www.etsy.com/shop/sneakysweet
