Hummingbird in my Kitchen

I was trying to liven up my key lime tarts by drawing Christmas trees and wreaths on them. Then I decided to try to do something with the pie. I tried to use a hummingbird cookie cutter as a stamp using food coloring but it was too light. I enhanced the stamp using colored gel.

When my tree was healthy, that wouldn't have been a problem. My tree has been been suffering lately. Either due to damage from recent freezes or one of the various citrus diseases that have spread across the state over the past few years, my tree is barely producing enough to keep the family happy.

Dear Steve,

Thanks so much for the vicarious birthday present. Even if I can only taste it in my dreams, it's great!

You can't beat key lime pie made with ripe limes. A ripe key lime is all yellow, maybe a small green ring at the stem, and is ready to fall off the tree.

More hummingbirds in my kitchen. Iced ginger molasses cookies:

I considered a new post titled "Albino Hummingbird with Broken bill" for this one:

Not bad for my first attempt at icing hummingbird cookies but there is room for improvement.

There are a number of hummingbird cookie cutters available online but they tend to go for $1-$2 and $8 shipping or $5 and $5 shipping. I found this for $1.20 at a local kitchenware store, The Rolling Pin Emporium.
