Soft-Baked Chocolate Sugar Cookies and Homemade Oreos

Homemade Oreos, Chocolate Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Cookie Recipes, Milk and CookiesA few days before Valentine's Day, I stumbled across this recipe for cutout chocolate sugar cookies.  I usually use my own shortbread cookie recipe when I want to make cutout cookies, but I've been wanting to try some new sugar cookie recipes, too, and this one was fantastic.

Harry Potter Cake

Harry Potter Cake, Golden Snitch Cake Topper, Quidditch Cake, Gryffindor, Harry Potter, 9 3/4 Cake, Baby Boy Birthday, Harry Potter Party, Mischief ManagedI love that Harry Potter has become a classic series, and there are so many fantastic decor items and party ideas on Etsy and Pinterest.  Have you seen Pottery Barn Kids' line of Harry Potter products?  It's amazing... and so expensive.

With my love for the Harry Potter books and movies, I had to make a themed cake for Griffin, since he is 9 3/4 months old this month.  How did that happen so fast?  I can't believe he's almost one already.
