Happy Thursday, ya’ll! I got quite a few requests for this recipe from the birthday party post I made a few weeks back, so I thought I’d make a little blog post on it today. Whether you have a little boy that would love these or you just like cinnamon and sugar, sugar cookies, this recipe is so easy and SO good. It’s actually a recipe I use quite often during Christmas time, so you may see them again in the near future. Just skip the dino footprints for Santa 😉
My baby boy turned TWO and I can’t handle it. I mean, his birthday was three months ago(😅 )and I’m still in disbelief. Time has clearly gotten the best of me with Ollie Bean’s birthday, our trip to California, my dad passing away, starting a new product business, breaking my foot, AND a trip to Colorado for a wedding. Good grief! But, I’m back with lots of built up content to share with you all, since well, I’ve been pretty immobile.😆 Plus side to everything, right? Oliver’s 2nd birthday party was such a great day. Considering it was only mid March, it actually turned out to be an incredibly beautiful day outside and almost everyone was able to make it, even despite COVID circling around. What a lucky little dude!
Happy Thursday and first day of OCTOBER! I can’t believe September is already over. As much as being in a pandemic sucks, I feel as though time has just flown by. Like, I have absolutely no idea where seven months of my life have gone. Honestly, it’s a little frightening. I feel like time in general goes by faster once you have a child. Everyday they are evolving, changing and doing something completely new, and before you know it they’re like, six. Okay… Oliver’s not even two, but he’s two going on 12, I swear. His little personality is so prominent and the boy knows what he wants. Which, are Coo Coo’s (cookies), all the time. That’s how this Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookie recipe came to. It’s sort of highbred between oatmeal raisin and peanut butter. I mean, let’s face it, no kid wants the cookie with raisins in it. However, oats are deemed “healthy” and peanut butter is good protein, so why not combine the two. Granted, cookies aren’t healthy, but let me just convince myself and feel better about eating 14 of these.
Good Morning and Happy Monday ya’ll! I can’t believe the weekend is already over. I spent most of my weekend inside due to the copious amounts of rain Wisconsin decided to dump on us, but none the less got caught up on some much needed work, content planning, and recipe testing. This post is actually coming about from a MAJOR fail I had yesterday in the kitchen. I feel like anytime I try something new, it doesn’t work. I sit there and question it, then tell myself to just follow the recipe, and then it turns out like garbage. I should know to trust my gut but yet here I am a day later with pancake cookies and a crushed soul. Aye yai yai. In the mist of this fail, I thought to myself, “I’m just going to make my cookies instead. They always work. I’ll just make a big batch, eat about 10 of them, enter a food coma, and forget about the flying saucers I just made.” Okay, maybe not 10 of them, and maybe I’m being dramatic, but, I hate when recipes don’t work. Therefore, I made my own. Honestly, these cookies have a pretty fool proof recipe. I’ve taught many people how to make these, and even the worst of the worst have succeeded. So, without further ado, I give you my Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Let’s just jump right into the real question here; Did anyone else grow up eating Fluffernutter sandwiches? Creamy peanut butter, gooey marshmallow fluff, and that super soft Wonder Bread? Man, childhood was the freaking best. Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t packed in my lunch everyday, but they sure were a gift when my mom made them. Why is it so frowned upon for adults to eat like that? Like, I can give my child a sandwich filled with marshmallows but the second I pack one in MY lunch I get weird looks in the break room? TOTALLY NOT FAIR. BUT, fear not my friends. I have made something, better. Something you can eat in adulthood and not be shamed for.
Merry Christmas everyone! We’ve reached the end of 12 Days of Christmas and honestly, I’m a little sad about it. But! With every end there is a new beginning, right? The new year is just around the corner and I have so many good things in store for ya’ll. 2020 is going to be full of recipes, travel, baby/toddler navigating, DIY, and so much more.
Merry Christmas Eve! We are on day ELEVEN of 12 days of Christmas! SO crazy that is almost Christmas! Does anybody else get as excited as I do thinking about other people opening the gifts that you got for them? I swear I’m more excited for Oliver and Christian than I am myself. Like, Oliver doesn’t even understand the concept of opening gifts. I’m probably just an insane person. Every Christmas Eve my brother and I, and our significant others, travel down to my mom’s house and have a private little Christmas without the whole entire family there. We somehow made it a tradition to go out for Asian food every Christmas Eve and I’m not mad about it. I don’t know how this even started but what I do know is we all end up eating entirely too much and become wastes of space for a good hour.
Happy Monday ya’ll! It’s day TEN of 12 Days of Cookies. That means only two days left! As we reach the end I wanted to share one of my favorites with you. Not just my favorite in these 12 days, but one of my favorite cookies I’ve ever eaten. And guys.. I’ve eaten a lot of cookies.
Day nine! Holy cats! There’s only three days left of 12 Days of cookies! Christmas is just around the corner and it’s seriously warm out. Living in Wisconsin I’ve become accustom to -0 weather and lots and lots of snow come late December – February. But ya’ll, it’s almost 50 degrees out. It’s like I really, REALLY want to enjoy it, but in the back of my head I’m just thinking about how our planet is slowly dying. So, it’s super depressing.
Welcome back to 12 days of Cookies! On day eight I gift to you, Monster Cookies. I decided to take the name seriously and I literally make these cookies monstrous. These are BIG.
