How adorable are these fun replicas of Annie’s iconic red dress? We were seeing red (and not in a bad way) as we made these frocks!
We paired the dresses with popular quotes from the show including: “It’s a Hard Knock Life” and “Leaping Lizards!” Enjoy!
Inspiration struck while at Michael’s the other day, aren’t these little patriotic decorations cute? Cute enough to replicate into a cookie? We thought so!
Happy 4th of July from the Yenta Mamas!
We just passed the summer solstice yesterday and it is officially summer! With school on the verge of being “out” no matter the district, sweet reminders of summer are everywhere! And it was with summer on our minds that we created yet another end-of-year-gift for our favorite educators!
Check out these “Happy Summer” Message Cookies paired with Mini Watermelon Slices! We’re especially proud of our layered rind and perfect (in our opinion), “watermelon red”
Here’s how the watermelons came to life:
All packaged up! Aren’t these cute teacher or hostess gifts?
What do you think? Has summer arrived?
As our blogging event concludes, we travel today to the Holy Land and visit Meir at http://www.bisstyle.net/ who has dedicated the blog to group we would call in the States: “foodies”! The blog is so fun and captivating, his photographs of the food he both creates and captures from local restaurants are a treat in and of themselves – everything looks so good and delicious – one of our favorite posts was entitled (translated), “Time to Learn Chocolate” … enough said, so we clicked through and found a delightful post with photographs surrounding a visit he made to the French chocolatier, Valrhona, like we said, delicious!
Thanks for stopping by to visit us for “A Very Jewish Summer”. We hope you will continue to stop by all of the blogs we’ve shared this week. Here is a wrap up of the summer fun!

Sometimes we have small amounts of icing colors left over … most of the time we combine them and make a really rich black (which is difficult to make from bright white icing), but this week inspiration struck for tie-dye t-shirts when we saw the bright array of colors in front of us.
With that, we decided to make these fun Father’s Day combinations for our dads and husbands – colorful sunglasses, “Groovy Dad” message cookies, flower power cookies – and of course, tie-dye t-shirts!
So, what do you think? Is your dad or husband groovy enough?
The school bell will be ringing for the last time this year and many kids will be promoting to the next grade level whether it be Elementary, Middle, or High School. We made these fun cookies because everyone still enjoys the signature symbols of graduation. We took a stab at a fun stick figure graduate. The other confetti and scroll design tutorials can be seen on Sweet Sugar Belle’s blog. MAZEL TOV to all friends and their children!
About a month ago we were contacted by Mollie Makes Magazine, a U.K. “lifestyle and craft magazine for those who live and love handmade” (http://www.molliemakes.com/). The magazine was interested in including our Downton Abbey cookies (or “biscuits”) in their Spring/Summer Wedding Bookazine for pages dedicated to Themed Weddings.
We are so excited to be included in this wonderful publication dedicated to taking a look inside the “homes of the world’s most creative crafters”!
We have taken a couple of photos of the magazine cover and the inside photo of our cookies and byline. See our original Downton Abbey post here: http://yentamamas.com/the-dowager-countess-of-grantham-returns-downton-abbey-cookies/
Enjoy and let us know what you think about this really special inclusion, thank you, Mollie Makes!
