The Inspiration Board: brookies, chicks and other good stuff

I recently had a birthday and boy, was I spoiled. I had to share all the goodies with you.

Brookies from my friend Vicky. These aren’t cupcakes. The bottom is a brownie, the middle is a cookie and the top is frosting. So good. I’m pretty sure the word “brookie” can be used in the same sentence as “devil” and “temptation”. Check out the recipe here on Martha Stewart.
My friend Linda let me scavenge her beautiful garden. Lookie what I got. I’m especially excited about the “chicks” from her Hens and Chicks plant. I can’t wait for my chicks to grow up and have chicks of their own.

The plant is called Hens and Chicks because the main plant, the hen, will produce little baby plants or chicks all around her. Here’s a nice blog article on Hens and Chicks.

Veggies from my neighbor’s garden. I will be posting up something made from these very soon.

The most beautiful flowers from my friends, C, J & B. Such good friends. I was overwhelmed.

My birthday cake. OK, I made this because it was also my son’s birthday. Cake decorating isn’t my forte but with my family the cake is gone so fast it would almost be a shame to spend too much time making it perfect.

I hope your weekend is filled with things as good as brookies, chicks, flowers and cake.
