It’s Your Birthday, It’s Your Birthday!

Orange Pinwheel Cookies

You can tell by looking at this picture that the candle is the “focus” (ha!) on this plate, not necessarily the treats.  So, let’s talk about the candle first! Happy, happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  happy, happy,  birthday to my cyber-foodie friend that I have actually met in person. And we still like each other. Actually, we love each other.  Funny how things work out. Today is Katrina’s birthday.  I think she is 24 or 25.  But, then she has these four handsome boys – and a husband – so that makes me think maybe she is a little older than that.  Maybe 29.  I think that is part of the reason she calls her blog Baking and Boys. Ya think? But I digress. Katrina and I met online through a Yahoo! food group.  We chatted in the chat room, ’cause that IS what you do in a chat room.  And found that we really enjoyed each others sense of humor.  Shelby from The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch was also a part of that group and we all drifted toward each other like earth magnets.  And we have stuck together ever since.  We keep saying that we are going to have a girls’ night out – which for us would mean traveling from Texas, New York, and Utah to a place that could handle the three of us for a night.  Well, more like a long weekend. We are still searching for a town that will allow us to stay that long.  I’m sure we will find something. . . My Mountain Man and I traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, a couple of years ago and I emailed Katrina to see if she wanted to meet up and have lunch.  You can read all about it by clicking here! Both of us have made a little sumpin’-sumpin’ for Katrina for her  birthday and have mailed it to her for “munching” pleasure.  Click on the link for Grumpy’s Honeybunch to see her birthday wishes and recipe.  In my case, there are two treats, one of which you will see below.  The other will be coming up tomorrow. Check your mailbox, Katrina!!!!  No, silly.  The one by your driveway.
