I have talked about my love for caffeinated beverages frequently on this space. They get me through my very early mornings, late nights, and days that end in the letter y. True story. Where you may think that my love for warm drinks ends with coffee, you couldn’t be any further from the truth. I happen to be a huge fan of hot tea. There is just something so cozy and inviting about a cup of tea. Anytime I go to fix myself a cup of tea I almost always find Russ requesting one too. Hot tea is just one of those things that brings people together.

January also happens to be Hot Tea Month! Today we are going to celebrate with Bigelow and make a tea inspired recipe!

Baby PBJ, Make Meal Time Fun Again

I’ve said it before and I will likely say it again, in our house PBJ is always on standby. Especially when it comes to our oh so sweet and oh so pick Emily Elizabeth. It’s funny to me that some how we ended up with one kid who eats everything and another who lives on peanut butter and jelly. But even the pickiest of eaters like a bit of variety and often end up bored eating the same sandwich over and over again. Today I want to share how we have made meal time fun again with a Baby PBJ Bagel-wich.

Oatmeal Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Two of my favorite things about the holiday season are extra family time and baking with my girls. I love to bake! I spend hours in my kitchen every single week preparing meals for my family, but baking with my girls has to be a favorite of mine. I love the giggles, the eagerness to help, and the tradition. 

Today I want to share a favorite new cookie recipe of ours and tell how baking with my girls has become a little bit easier lately.
