Every family has a special treat that is intertwined in many of their most precious memories. For us it is the delicious and trusty, donut. I have such a long and meaningful relationship with donuts. Donuts are not something we get often, but when we do get them it is sure to be a special […]

Cooking with children comes with a few, how do you say, challenges. My older boys are now at an age where they can pretty accurately follow a recipe. Julian did mix up the salt and sugar that one time, but other than that they’re pretty ace. The littles, however, are more at the break and […]
Who doesn’t love a good homemade cookie? Answer: no one. That is why there’s a national holiday dedicated to it! October 1 is National Homemade Cookie Day and to celebrate, I whipped up these bad boys. They are best when the dough sits in the freezer for a couple of hours so this isn’t the fastest recipe, but it’s worth it.
Pro tip: they freeze great so double the recipe and freeze whatever you don’t bake for a quick batch of cookies later.
I’ve kept this cookie dough in the freezer for up to a month and they taste just as great as the first batch. It has been a lifesaver when my sweet tooth kicks in, or if we have people over last minute. Happy Baking!!!
Seriously, these are delicious and you will love them. To me, there’s something extra special about homemade desserts. It’s a nice way to show loved ones that you are thinking about them and it isn’t done much anymore. Now don’t get me wrong, there isn’t always time to bake cookies from scratch and a store bought cookie is super tasty as well! My kiddo will devour a Publix cookie in two seconds flat. I just love to bake and try out new recipes so I take the opportunity whenever I can. Plus, can we talk about the lingering smell long after the cookies are done??? It makes me feel good to have fresh baked goods in the house (my jeans aren’t as big of a fan but…oh well). Our friends and family know that if they come over, there’s a good chance I’ve just pulled something delish out of the oven. Somebody recently came over to meet with my husband and when he walked in he said, “hey have you baked anything today?” and it totally made my day.
My warmest childhood memories all revolve around my grandparents. I was blessed enough to know all four of my grandparents as a child, to know and love them well. My great grandmother passed away when I was young but her presence in my life from birth to 11 was so impactful that my memories of […]
