Mom's 60th...pre-party

Apparently I didn't get the memo that my mom's impromptu birthday party wasn't a dessert party.

Nonetheless...in 24 hours I have made for the party:

Cashew Caramel Cookies
Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies
Sugar Cookies
Apple Cherry Crumb Bars
Coconut Cake (for the birthday girl)
Special Dark Chocolate Cake & Semisweet Choco Ganache

Oh, and marinated chicken wings...'cause I guess we don't want the guests going into sugar overload.  ;o)  I'll also be making a kale salad too.  Mmmmmmmmmmm...kale.

But back to the diabetic-coma-inducing menu I'll also be trying out Michelle's Panipopo which are Samoan Coconut Buns.

The best husband ever got me my new camera...so, I'm hoping there will be some pics to post after this weekend!

Yummm, can I come over? The choco crinkle recipe was incredibly easy-peasy! The key is chilling the batter for a long time - I'd say 8 hours - before baking. I'll send you recipe (from blog I follow) if you'd like!

And yay to your new camera! Key is to use a lot of natural light! xxoo
