Weekly Cookie Recap

Happy Valentines Week, friends! What a wonderful week full of cookies this has been for me. My house is bursting with the smell of fresh baked cookies decorated for all kinds of wonderful events this week.. don’t y’all just love the smell (and taste!) of fresh baked cookies?!

 

Starting this week I had Valentine cookie pickups. I offered several different cookie sets for everyone to choose from. They made a perfect, affordable, gift for teachers and kids that everyone was sure to love!  Locals, please visit my Facebook  page to order cookies for your next holiday or special event!

This was my first year to do Valentines cookies. I began this Cookie endeavor in May of 2017 so this is all new territory for me. But with any new cookie and cookie holiday, comes a challenge, and that is exactly why I wanted to get into this craft.

 

Moving on, this next set was for a preschool Valentine’s Day party a few days after Valentines. I used my SweetSugarbelle heart cutter to create these. I love the sizing of these cutters. I also love the combination of these colors. They look soft and cohesive.  On these, and all of my other Valentine cookies, I used sprinkles from Sprinkled.  Remember, you can read my review on these sprinkles over on my post: Collaboration with Sprinkled + A Sprinkle Mix GIVEAWAY. And don’t forget you can use my code, Brittany20, and get 20% off!

I also did sports cookies for a sweet little boy’s birthday! He loves basketball, football, soccer, and baseball. I was so glad I could make these for him and hope he loves them as much as I do!

 

This mermaid set has got to be one of my favorite mermaid sets. I love all the details, especially the fin details on the mermaid tail that I achieved with my airbrush.  If you look close, you can see glitter in the name cookie. Plus who doesn’t love these beautiful mermaid colors?!

I also got to make cookies for a 30th birthday bash in Nashville!  I loved the super girly colors and Nashville inspired cowgirl boots and guitar I used.  Not to mention, the state of Tennessee turned out so cute.  I could see this cookie being perfect for other events like tailgates for UT games, great for someone moving, or even great for a graduate!

This last set was for a friend from high school. I just have to stop here just a minute and tell you how much a friend supporting your little business means. Seriously! It is the ultimate compliment to have a friend buy your cookies. Okay back to her beautiful baby shower cookies.. I love the theme and colors and think the pot of gold is perfect in pink.  The pot of gold was made from a honey pot cookie cutter, my sweet cookie friend suggested it and I think it works perfectly! Congratulations sweet friend on your sweet girl’s upcoming arrival!

That’s all for this week. Thank y’all for catching up each week for my weekly recaps.

I’d love to know where my readers are reading my posts.. leave a comment below with your state or country!

Weekly Cookie Recap

This week was the start of Valentines orders. I’m so excited to show y’all those next week! But back to this week, let me show you what I had!

I started this week with a 60th birthday for a hot rod owner. These were very fun and I love the bright flames with the black car. I loved using my Sweet Sugarbelle bus to make a hot rod!  I really do enjoy taking a cookie cutter and making it into a new shape.

I also had a Galentines party set I was able to create! I didn’t know what a Galentines was when I was first asked to make these. But thankfully my sweet customer explained to me that she and her friends (gals) were all getting together for pizza, drinks, and sweet treats. She asked if I could make pizza cookies to go with the theme of the night. I, of course, said yes. These pizza slices turned out so cute. I absolutely loved making them and think the toppings make them so unique.  And what’s a Valentine’s party without hearts? So I had to do a few hearts to tie it all together. I sure do hope these sweet ladies have a great Galentines tonight!

The last set I made was for us! Liam and I are going to a Valentine’s Tea Party with my niece, she’s 5 and Liam absolutely adores her. I made these little two bite hearts and detailed them with airbrushed hearts. I love how cute they turned out. Be sure to check out my next post with my Collaboration with Sprinkled + A Sprinkles Mix Giveaway to see the cupcakes I made and topped them with the most delicious sprinkles.  You’re not going to want to miss it because I’ll have a coupon code for you to use to get 20% off your sprinkle order in her etsy shop!

Weekly Cookie Recap

This week was filled with some fun cookies!

I started this week with Matilda Jane cookies. I have the sweetest customer who has me do MJ inspired cookies for the new launches. I look forward to these cookies so much! They are always so fun and I really feel like I can be as creative as I’d like. Also, if you’re in need of some MJ things let me know and I’ll pass on the trunk keeper’s contact info. I’m sure she won’t mind!

These cookies were inspired by crib bedding for this sweet baby shower. I love how the little owls turned out and the colors are so soft. And that name, Emelia Louise.. how cute is that?!

“Welcome to the ‘hood” cookies. What a sweet way to welcome new neighbors. This customer is one of the sweetest and she lets me just get super creative. I ponder this one for a while but then thought the front doors would be absolutely perfect to add the little words to. I love how these turned out.

Super Bowl Sunday is tomorrow! What better way to celebrate than with some delicious football cookies? I do hope these are enjoyed at a party tomorrow.

That’s all for this week’s cookie Recap. Be sure to check back weekly for my latest posts!

Here’s how I blog on Saturday mornings.. my “editor” telling me which cookie photos I should post.  Happy Saturday friends!

Low Carb Pancakes

So my husband (Shawn) and I have decided to go low carb. This is a personal decision based on what works for us. I am in no way trying to make anyone go low carb or trying to advise you on health in this post. I’m simply just sharing a delicious recipe I thought you’d enjoy 😊

Okay so I originally found this recipe on https://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/cream-cheese-pancakes/. Hers are so much prettier than mine and she does use cinnamon and I do not. So here’s my take on the recipe..

Recipe:

2 oz Cream Cheese
2 large eggs
1-1.5 tsp artificial sweetener
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

In a blender, I use the Ninja Professional (love it!!), I put all ingredients in at once. I blend it until it’s smooth. It will have lots of bubbles so let it sit for a few minutes before pouring into your skillet.

Once your skillet is hot and the butter you used to grease the pan is melted, start pouring your pancakes like you usually would. This recipe is somewhat runny and for me they do tend to be a messier pancake but they are seriously delicious so bare with me! Flip them as you would normally, it might take a few more seconds on the the original side because they can fall apart as you flip.

Continue making the pancakes. I do tend to make smaller ones so they are easier to flip.

Once they are finished I top them with sugar free syrup. I use Maple Grove Farms Low Calorie Syrup Sugar Free Maple Flavor.

That’s it! My recipe makes a ton of pancakes and I do eat all of them unless I’m sharing with Liam. These are also good reheated so they are perfect for a busy morning.
