Strawberry Chocolate Chip Crisps

Years ago I was introduced to an amazing cook book, Cake Mix Magic 2. All the recipes use a cake mix in them and the recipes range from cookies to bars to fancier cakes. I've made quite a few recipes out of the book but by far my favourite is 'Lemon Crisps'. It's ridiculously simple and requires a lemon cake mix. Anytime I've made these cookies people don't believe me when I say they're made with a cake mix.

Anyways, I've made adjustments to this recipe to make other flavoured cookies. I've used a pineapple and a chocolate cake mix to make simple, yummy cookies. And then I tried a strawberry cake mix with cut up strawberries. This time I thought I'd use another strawberry cake mix but add in some chocolate since chocolate covered strawberries are delicious! They turned out so good and everyone who has tried them really likes them too.

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Crisps
1 box of strawberry cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup of butter, melted (I used margarine)
1 cup of chocolate chips
Granulated sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and melted butter. Mix with wooden spoon until well blended. Add in chocolate chips and mix well.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar. Place on greased baking sheets 2 inches apart.  Press flat with bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool for 1 minute on baking sheet or until firm.  Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.

If you want to try this recipe with the lemon cake mix, just substitute the cake mix and add in some lemon juice and zest (zest is optional) instead of chocolate chips. I promise you won't be disappointed!

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
