I love baking for the holidays, and I find that baking helps to calm me and let's me regroup when I'm in my new Mommy sleep deprived state. Normally I participate in a cookie Christmas exchange but since I'm not at work I haven't done that this year so I'm starting to bake cookies now.
To start I tried a Robin Hood recipe, Chocolate Mint Sparklers. I picked this as chocolate mint because is Jordan's favourite flavour. We even had a layer of our wedding cake in the flavour so it seemed like the perfect cookie to start the season. I only had to made a few adjustments, overall the recipe was super easy and yummy.
These are also family approved!
**I froze over half of these in wax paper and tin foil so we have some for Christmas Eve **
What's your favourite holiday cookie? Any recommendations for what I should bake next?
I am writing this update in the tub. No, I'm not sexy or trying to paint a fun picture but it seemed to be the only time where I had both hands free and wasn't breastfeeding.
Don't get me wrong I am LOVING being a mom but finding free time is a challenge.
Before Finnley arrived I had this ambitious plan to complete a list of things just for me prior to baby. Unfortunately with complications and an early indication I didn't get very far but I do have updates below, as promised.
Well, there are my updates on my pre-pregnancy list. I'm thinking of doing a top 10 list for baby's first year. Any suggestions from moms out there??
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
