If you like Trader Joe's Joe-Joe's you'll love our Holiday Ho-ho's (without the E). Our favorite people from Blendtec made an incredible video on how to make our Christmas Cookies in their blender!!! Can you imagine making them in a blender? SO easy! What's even better is you can enter to win a blendtec over on our instagram!! Several years ago we hosted The Great Cookie Exchange! It was so much fun! We have thee cutest downloadable invites, tags, recipe cards etc. You can find all the free . . .
I grew up living next to my Grandma Moon, and she was an amazing cook. De.Lish. One of the recipes I was SURE to copy was her oatmeal raisin cookies. Just look at the ingredients and you'll notice these cookies have more than just cinnamon in them. Genius. Soft, cinamonny, spicy sweet goodness with the nutritional awesomeness of oats and raisins. The Husband is a chocolate-hater, so these cookies actually get made quite often. Extra bonus: your house smells like an oatmeal raisin candle has been lit all . . .
Tis the season for candy, treats, homemade caramel apples, pie and soo many delicous goodies. Halloween especially is focused all on the candy. So, while this pizza isn't 100% sugar free.... at least it has fruit! and you can sub the frosting for vanilla greek yogurt! It feeds a crowd, and throws together so fast! We are collaborating with JANE for a fun #trickortreat series! You can see much more on their instagram if you head over there. This treat is almost so easy it almost doesn't even need a recipe . . .
Do you need a fast, easy, yummy cookie recipe to make before Santa arrives to an empty plate? Well I have the perfect recipe for you. These chocolate cookies are such a cinch to whip up and you make them in your waffle iron! My mom used to make these when I was a kid and we adored them. My 3 year old helped me make up this batch and loved waiting patiently for the waffle iron to bake these cookies. These cookies are soft and chocolatey and and the icing is the perfect finishing touch. My boys begged . . .
Trader Joe's has some of my favorite Christmas treats. Among them are their Jo Joe's. They are similar to Oreos with chocolate wafers but have a peppermint cream in the middle. After buying a package and eating them within 24 hours, I realized that I could bake something like it at home. With a homemade Oreo wafer recipe and some candy canes, I thought this Christmas season I could make my own Joe Joe's. I present to you the result of my experiment: Ho Ho's (I'll keep it clean without the "e"). They are so . . .
As a kid I ALWAYS requested funfetti cake for my birthday. I loved that frosting with the waxy little numbs of sprinkles. So it's only appropriate to have funfetti cookies! My husband loved these little babies! They are sweet and fun and the perfect little bite of perfection. These guys are great freezers - so make up a big batch and stick them in the freezer for a future date. I'm not a huge cake lover - so I would much much rather receive a plate of these cookie on my birthday. What about you? . . .

This is my Grandma Eliason's recipe and my dad's favorite cookie. It's quite delicious. I added a little holiday spin on it. It's only the 2nd week of January but I'm already thinking of Valentine's Day. Food coloring can make any food seem more festive. My grandma makes these with the big Hershey's Kiss in the middle. I just can't keep those in my house, they would be gone before the cookies were even done. I feel like 3 chocolate chips work out perfectly. Baking is touchy. If the butter consistancy isn't right, . . .
Let me begin with a little introduction. I dont know really know Kelsey. She is a friend of a friend....maybe I could say, a dear friend of a dear friend to me. So last Christmas I was sooo disappointed when my dear friend wasn't answering my texts and wasn't available to go to lunch or hang out for bit when I went home for the holdiay. I soon learned that she was elsewhere with her friend who needed her much more than me. A few months later I noticed Kelsey on instagram and so out of curiousity of my dear friend's . . .
