Lime Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recently I shared some recipes that I wanted to try and one of them was Key Lime Cookies. Adam is a huge fan of lime so I figured I'd give these cookies a go. Well, the recipe calls for a Key Lime cake mix. In Canada, we do not have such a thing. Not that I've ever seen anyways because I would buy one in a heartbeat because of Adam's love of lime.

I ended up finding a Lemon Crackle cookie recipe in my Company's Coming cookbook. It's a basic recipe and I just switched out all the lemon ingredients for lime. I also added in some chocolate chips. They turned out pretty good but the lime flavour isn't super strong.

Don't get me wrong, they're very tasty with a harder outside and a soft inside. But I think we were both expecting a stronger lime taste. So now I need to get down to the U.S. to look for key lime cake mix!

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and enjoying some sweet treats too!

  1. they look delicious...I'd like the lemon and/or lime taste.

    1. I prefer lemon, the husband prefers lime so I tend to mix and match random lemon and lime recipes for this reason.

  2. They look super yummy! :) I love lime stuff, it's a shame they weren't limey-er (that's a word now)
    Hope you get your cake mix in the end!

    1. Thanks! My Aunt has informed me she'll look for the cake mix the next time she's shopping in the U.S.

  3. I've found the same thing when I used to cook - not much point these days when doing it only for myself, and in any case, my cooker is on the blink! However, I've sometimes found that if one uses the concentrated lime juice, rather than the natural, real thing, the flavour does come through a bit better. Why not give it a go? Good luck!

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…
