just curious..

If you are a blog reader who does NOT follow us on IG, can you leave a comment ? Because I have so many cute videos of Lily to post here, but if most of her readers have already seen them on IG … it probably isn't necessary to post them here as well :)

Also… what's your favorite cookie recipe ? I'm looking for some fun new ones this year.


And one more thing…






…is that the cutest face, or what ?!?!?

Favorite cookie in our house - butterscotch oatmeal. My husband devours them!

I am not on instagram! Favorite cookie: the SmittenKitchen's spicy gingerbread (adapted from Martha Stewart). Although, once I tried to make them healthy with whole wheat flour and they just didn't taste the same. But following the recipe they were amazing!

I'm not on IG at all. It's just not my thing.

My favorite cookies are cinnamon candy cane cookies (here's where I found them a few years ago: http://www.redbookmag.com/recipefinder/candy-cane-cookies-4298)

Cutest pic of Lily!

Lora said...

I am on Instagram and have seen the adorable videos. But I follow you here as well. My favorite cookie recipe is probably basic chocolate chip. Although, this time of year I always make at least 5 different batches of peanut butter balls. Been making those for years! Everyone loves them!!!

While this treat is not a cookie..it is a yummy sweet, salty bite that is so quick and easy to make. Pretzel
with a Hershey kiss on top and an
m&m. Just warm pretzel with kissie
in the oven take out, top with m&m.
That's it. So good.

Emily said...

Not on IG. Bring on the videos!!

I'm trying this recipe this year -- http://www.bakersroyale.com/cookies/peppermint-crinkle-cookies/ -- my husband loves pprmint+chocolate. If you have eager helping hands, try -- http://rachelschultz.com/2012/07/20/rolo-stuffed-snickerdoodles/ -- lots of tasks to divy up among the littles and the cookies are SO good. :)

I am not an instagram follower. A favorite recipe of ours is chocolate mint cookies. It is made simple with a chocolate cake mix and mint chips.

Here is one of our family's favorite Christmas cookies recipes: http://www.recipe.com/patchwork-mittens/. It is a cutout cookie that is so much more yummy than a traditional sugar cookies recipe. Yum, yum!

Nina said...

No instagram for me so please post here; adore seeing the precious photos and videos; keep 'em coming!

cara said...

I am not on IG!!! And I would LOVE to see the videos of Lily. So would Benji. Well, ALL the kids would to be matter of fact. That header of Lily is too precious!!!

I don't have any good cookie recipes. But we have a gooey butter cake recipe that is TOO yummy to NOT make!!! I would just drop one off at your house. But since I am out of state, I will give you the recipe.

1 box Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
1 stick of butter
3 eggs
1 box of powder sugar
1 12 oz. thing of cream cheese

You mix the cake mix, 1 egg, and butter (melted) in a bowl. It turns into a dough. You put this in your pan. This will be the bottom layer, so you press it all around. Then you mix the 2 eggs, powder sugar, and cream cheese together in a bowl with a mixer. This will be the icing/top layer. You pour that mixture on top of the dough mixture. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. But check it because depending on your oven, it may need less or more. You don't want it too done at all because you want it gooey. But you do not want it too gooey either. :) :)

I know you didn't ask for cake, but I had to share. It is my mother-n-law's recipe. It is SO easy and anywhere we take it, it is an instant hit. It is melt in your mouth yummy and rich!!! xoxo

I don't follow on instagram. I would like to see her videos. She is absolutely adorable. I just love her!

Amy said...

NOT on IG! We make lots of cookies at Christmas, but my personal favorite is traditional sugar cookie cut outs. I prefer the ones decorated by my younger children because they are most generous with the sprinkles ;)

I've been following Lily's adventures along with the rest of the family for a while. But I don't use Instagram so I would love it if you posted videos here! She is such a cutie pie...love that little face! What DOES she want for Christmas????

mmfollbaum said...

I also don't use instagram and would love to see Lily videos! God bless, Michele

Susanna said...

No instagram.

Our top favorite is mint chocolate chip cookies using these in a dark chocolate cookie: http://www.hersheysstore.com/product/7687

A second favorite is butterscotch oatmeal cookies with fresh orange zest and a touch of cloves.

We also make LOTS of classic gingersnaps disappear during Christmastime!

Another yummy treat we only make at this time (and make lots to give as gifts) is baked caramel popcorn. You can dress it up with nuts and/or chocolate drizzle, but it's just as addictive plain. This recipe looks about like ours: http://southernfood.about.com/od/popcorntreats/r/bl50616b.htm

Love you, friend! Have a wonderful Christmas!

mcn1784 said...

Caroline said...

That is a gorgeous Lily face! I follow your blog on Bloglovin' and love reading about Lily and your family. I don't have an Instagram account and didn't know you were on Instagram so don't get to see any cute Lily videos :-(

To introduce myself - Hi, my name is Caroline and I follow your blog all the way from New Zealand! I work as a part time Teacher Aide at a school for children with special needs (which I love).

Now for a cookie recipe - I love tradition and I think you can't go better than Gingerbread at this time of the year.

Keep up with the cool blog and hugs to Lily,
Caroline
