I was never a flat sheet lover, but Cariloha changed that for me. I love cuddling up with their soft and cool sheets, and I love the feel of them on my legs and feet.

For your extra entry for the giveaway, leave a comment with what sheet set (color and size), you would choose if you won! GOOD LUCK!

The Hot Iron Holster

Have you guys heard of this company? These Holsters are made of silicon and they cling to any smooth surface. Can you imagine the possibilities!? They honestly clear up so much counter space. They can not only be used in the bathroom, but in the craft room, toy room, or kitchen! Sounds like a dream to me. They come in a variety of different colors and sizes, which I love.

BabyLit Giveaway and Review!

BabyLit. Ah. Where to begin? Saylor and I have been reading BabyLit books together since she was a tiny little baby. A family member had gifted us a few her first Christmas and I could instantly tell that these books were different. Not just because of their perfect size, how well they are made, but they hit something within Saylor! By the time she was a year, I swear she had Alice in Wonderland and Romeo & Juliet memorized. #babygenius! I’m just kidding…I know it has everything to do with the way these books are designed specifically for our little ones. Fun, creative images in bright colors. Dark, big and bold print, in simple words for kids to say and remember.

Not only do they have books, they have other fun things like puzzles, stroller cards, and dolls! Such cuteness I can hardly stand it.

My new favorite thing of their lately is the “All Aboard” series. I personally have the California, London, and National Park books, and I LOVE THEM. Each of those have a special place in my heart, and I love that I have a cute, little fun book to remind me why.

The BEST Cookie Recipe!

As promised, I am here to share my all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe with you! This has came after years of picking and choosing what really does make up the best cookie (and with help of my mother in law). Every single thing that goes into a cookie can change the flavor and consistency, and these are my personal favorite things. I love lots of chocolate, salt, and slightly undercooked.

IMG_1756

The first trick is SEA SALT. Sprinkle some right on top of the dough balls before you pop them in the over. LIFE CHANGING.

Second trick is an OVER FLOWING tablespoon of ARTIFICIAL VANILLA EXTRACT. I promise you that real vanilla doesn’t give you the taste in these cookies that you want.

Next thing to do for the perfect cookie is to not set the butter out to thaw! Soft/melted butter leads to flat cookies. I take the butter right from the fridge and microwave each stick for about 10 seconds.

Last trick is always add a bit more flour than the recipe calls for. I love fluffy, chewy cookies, so adding a little more flour than what is said to do always ensures a fluffy cookie!

Now here is the recipe-

Preheat the over to 375. In a large bowl combine-

2 cubes of butter, softened by microwave (see above)

1 C brown sugar

1/2 C white sugar

1 T imitation vanilla (overflowing)

1 egg

Mix together until creamy. Add the following ingredients into the same bowl.

2 1/2 C flour (or a little more)

1 t baking soda

1/2 t salt

Mix all together until smooth and there are no traces of flour. Mix in as many chocolate chips as you would like, this part is personal preference. Use 2 spoons to create large, rounded dollops of dough, about 1-2″ apart. Sprinkle with sea salt! Cook between 9-10 minutes, depending if you like slightly undercooked or fully cooked cookies.

My favorite part about baking and cooking is that there is no right or wrong way. You get to experiment and try new things. This recipe is my absolute favorite, and I have had a yummy time figuring it out along the way. I hope you try it out, and let me know what you think. What are some of your tricks for making the perfect cookie?

Robyn

oh PS — another trick I always do, is I keep my cookies in a ziploc bag in the freezer. Don’t ask questions, just do it. It is the best.
