LEMON DRESS COOKIES/ Suffrage



The definition of the word ‘suffrage’ is the right to vote in public, political elections and as you know, the Suffragettes were the women who valiantly fought and marched for the rights of women to get the vote. The 19th Amendment to the Constitution was passed in 1920 and now 100 years later, women voters are greater in numbers than men. We’ve come a long way, baby! It was not easy and it took nearly 70 years. It began with a speech in 1848 at Seneca Falls, New York by Elizabeth Cady Stanton at the first women’s convention. Along with Susan B. Anthony they began a movement. Sadly, neither lived to see their goal come to fruition but generations of women have benefited from their cause. So, ladies it is your duty to cast your vote in all elections; not just the national ones but all state, local and special elections. Something I have proudly done since legally becoming of age to vote. Please, don’t take this right for granted. 




Even though it may not seem like summertime, I thought these Lemon Dress cookies would remind us how cheerful and sunshiny life will be sometime soon. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.

MUSICAL NOTE COOKIES/ Piano Envy



Was there something you really, really wanted as a kid? For me, there were three things. One was an inground swimming pool .... isn't that on everyone's list? Another was to wear glasses because I thought they were cool. These days, I can’t go anywhere without my specs! The other, to play the piano but my parents could not afford the lessons or the piano. Those black and ivory keys looked like fun to play and I love the sound of a piano. My husband has a keyboard so it is definitely on my to do list. During this stay home phase of life, it may be a good time to pick up that instruction book. As I look back on it, maybe I was lucky because classmates who had to practice piano everyday after school complained a lot. Maybe those kids were jealous of their pals who could run out and play after school without a thought to piano practice?


These cookies are made with the musical note cutter and an easy cookie to decorate. Since the shape is simple yet distinctive, I added a flourish to complement the cookie.
