I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Martini Cookies

So a friend of mine is getting married in about 3 weeks, and I've been asked to make her wedding favors. A crab shaped sugar cookie! I made the same ones for my wedding, so it shouldn't too difficult. But at the last minute, she also asked me to make some cookies for her bachelorette party. Gotta love Christy's flexibility, since she said "just make something cute. Surprise me!" So I went with the martini glass, figuring that was appropriate for the party. Her wedding colors are teal (and something else, which I can't remember, as it's only 5:40am!), so I made the tops of the martinis teal, to run with the theme. All in all, I think they look great! Congratulations Christy!! Have fun at your party! :)
