The Best Homemade Oreos

The Best Homemade Oreos

The BEST Homemade Oreos Super Simple and Easy Homemade Oreos I grew up loving these cookies so much! When my mom would make them they were gone in seconds! I think it also doesn’t help that each cookie takes 2 cookies to make a sandwich! We would always run into the kitchen when they were done and eat them until we were sick! My kids love them just as much! Some of them lick the frosting out of the middle and some of them eat them entirely! They are super yummy and super simple! Just how we like it in …

Milk and Cookie Shots

Milk and Cookie Shots

When I think about New Years Eve recipes I wish it was some glamorous thing! But as a mom of 4 young kids New Years Eve is more about banging pots and pans, blow horns, family friendly food, and trying to make it until the ball drops! So when asked to create a New Years Eve recipe these cookie and milk shot glasses came in mind! These can be filled with all kinds of stuff and are fun for the entire family! My kids (and a few neighbor kids) went crazy over these! Milk and Cookie Shots  1 box Krusteaz …

Mother’s Day Favorites

Mother’s Day is coming up and I couldn’t help but compile a few of my favorite things or actually my favorite things that remind me of my mom.

Her entire house is black and white with little touches of gold. She is …

Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies

Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies

Last year I went to a fun cookie decorating class at Petite Party Studio and learned a few tricks with making sugar cookies and decorating them. Ever since then I have been hooked on decorating cookies. Unfortunately it is one of those things that I like to do when my kids aren’t around. Most of my cooking I do with music going and my kids running wild around me. Decorating sugar cookies I like to do in the quiet with no kids running wild around me. Maybe its a little therapeutic for me. Either way I love it!  These bunny …

I always try to just enjoy the moment with my children instead of taking pictures of everything. So the quality of pictures isn’t …

White Chocolate Reese’s Cookies

My husband always gets excited when he sees me in the kitchen making cookies. Then after they are done he always says “what happened to just making normal chocolate chip cookies” haha I obviously have a problem with making just normal cookies.

My little boy Remington started kindergarten this year and my oldest is in 2nd grade. My husband and I walked our boys to school for the first day they were excited and nervous. Then my husband headed to work and I took my little girl and …
