    Oh man! MMMMM… Cookies! 🙂 the NSAID’s I am HIGHLY allergic…. LOL.. Benadryl helps to get it out of your system quicker. Sorry you’ve been having such trouble! I am truly inspired by you, love your blog!

      Thanks for the tip! I will try the Benadryl tonight. It knocks me out so I can’t take it during the day. 🙂

    How do you cook and not binge? I don’t even celebrate Christmas (we are Chanukah people) and I found myself baking sugar cookies and then bingeing on them….ugh.

      Part of the equation was that I needed ALL of the cookie dough because I have to make so many cookies for the party. I couldn’t spare any extra! But if I didn’t have to worry about that, I’d eat too many of them….

    Let me know how the frosting works out! The recipe I gave you (powdered sugar, lemon juice or water, cream of tartar) is good to apply in a thin coating to make sprinkles stick or to pipe on for outlines or gingerbread faces. It dries nicely but its not something you want to put on thick like buttercream (I think most boxes of powdered sugar have a buttercream recipe – powdered sugar, butter, milk).

    Here’s my cookie post if you haven’t seen it:
