African Swirls

African sugar cookies...check!
Before arriving in Lesotho, I had no intention of baking any sugar cookies while I was away.
I just didn't think I'd have any of the ingredients...or an oven that worked...
or numerous other obstacles.
Well, it turns out most of these obstacles existed...but I made cookies anyway!
The Madre was kind enough to send me cookies cutters, frosting bags, 
and tips all the way form Washington!
Once I had those, I was good to go!

Cinco de Mayo!

There's not always a lot going on around here in Mokhotlong.
So we do what we can to make our own fun!
This weekend, that fun came in the form of a Cinco de Mayo party!
I made these DELICIOUS Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies!
Did I mention they were DELICIOUS?!
I've always loved the chocolate/chili combo!
Mmmm, mmm, mmm.
I used Martha's recipe and couldn't help but add some dark chocolate chunks.
You'll never convince me that everything isn't a little better with a little dark chocolate!Photobucket
