Peppermint Chip Cookies

During the Christmas season I found white chocolate peppermint chips at The Bulk Barn. I had some leftover so I did some searching online for a peppermint chip cookie recipe. Something different than the usual chocolate cookie with peppermint chips combo. 

I came across this recipe on Pinterest. I adjusted a few things, but oh man, these cookies are incredible!

Peppermint White Chocolate Chip Cookies:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup white chocolate peppermint chips

1. Combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and sea salt together in a bowl.
2. Using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar in a separate bowl.
3. Add in the egg and vanilla extract to butter mixture while still mixing on low.
4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix together.
5. Cover the bowl of cookie dough with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30-35 minutes. I found the dough a bit crumbly after I took it out of the refrigerator.
6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease baking sheets.
7. Using your hands, roll dough into balls and place on baking sheet, flattening slightly.
8. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

I cannot recommend this recipe enough! They were so good (yes, they're gone now). The dough had a slight salty, shortbread taste. And it was the perfect combination with the sweet peppermint chips. I definitely want to try this recipe again, but try a different chip.

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 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 …

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…
