Betty Crocker cookie time!

I am not usually a big baker but this year my daughter has to bring in 4 dozen homemade treats for school-eek! So I began the search for something wonderfully simple that would make me look like I spend hours in the kitchen. Here is what I found:
The recipe can be found at Better Crocker here.  It is such a delightfully simple treat that looks beyond adorable! I cannot wait to show up with my two dozen brownies!

Now I also need two dozen cookies and found this little gem at Betty Crocker once again!

This one does not look as simple as a quick cut but we are going to try our best! What cookie recipes are your go to for the holiday season?

Perfect End to Black Friday Shopping

Have you ever tried Not Your Father's Root Beer? We stumbled across them at a local brewery show last year in Cleveland, Ohio. We were not lucky enough to have them in our area until I came across in our local Meijer! To make an end to a long Friday of shopping we decided to celebrate with root beer floats with a twist!

If you have not tried it is beyond delicious- a little vanilla ice cream and Root beer make the perfect grown up ice cream float!

Thanksgiving Table idea

As we approach the holiday I am always on the look out for easy ideas that make it look like I have it together! This year we are doing a "I am thankful" white paper table cover instead of the traditional table cloth. If you also are going this route look at the amazing crayon/marker holder ideas I have found!

Enjoy the holiday season!

Great Thanksgiving teacher gift idea!

As many of you know I love the holidays! My favorite part is trying to match the best gift with each person. This year my daughter has three teachers so we were looking for something affordable and unique for Thanksgiving.

Look what I came across: An entire site full of great affordable ideas!

I personally like the jar filled with candy-although I think we will do a mason jar and I will have my daughter write why she is thankful for her teacher on feathers.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving season!
