Lemon Crisps

This month I had made some Valentine sugar cookies and Cherry Almond cupcakes early in the month since I was going to be working crazy hours during the week of Valentine's Day.

Well, they have pretty much all been consumed so I made up some quick and easy lemon cookies this morning.

I have been making this recipe for years now. It came from my Cake Mix Magic book and I have made variations of this recipe a few times, along with the lemon flavour. 

Lemon Cookies

Lemon Crisps

1 box lemon cake mix

1 egg
1/2 cup butter/margarine, melted
1 tsp lemon juice
Granulated sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cake mix, egg, melted butter and lemon juice in large bowl. Mix with wooden spoon until well blended.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on greased baking sheets and press flat with bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets or until firm, then transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.  

These cookies are addictive and everyone I have made them for asks for the recipe. They are chewy on the inside and the outside has a nice crunch. If you're looking to whip up some cookies and have limited ingredients on hand, these cookies are perfect!

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…
