Baking with Kids: Eggless Sugar Cookies

Hallmark Crown Store - Minnie Baking Kit - Eggless - Sugar - Cookie - Eggfree - Cookie       

The holidays are just around the corner and that means this mamá is on high alert with all the baked goods. You see, Mia is severely allergic to an ingredient found in pretty much every yummy pastry or baked good — eggs to be exact. Because of that, it’s always a bit sad to see our little one get upset over not being able have that pink cupcake all the other kids at the party are enjoying. I know, it’s not the end of the world and the older she gets the more she understands that she could “choke” as she calls it from ingesting eggs. However, sometimes it’s just easier to make our own baked goods from scratch and take them to our friends and family gatherings. And Mia loves to bake now so having a little helper is key.

Recently, we were at our local Hallmark Gold Crown store and we found the cutest Disney Minnie Mouse Baking kit. It includes a reusable box with handle to store a rolling pin, spatula, mixing spoon, 2 cookie cutters, treat bags, sticker seals and recipe cards. All for only $14.95! Such a sweet deal we had to purchase it.Hallmark Crown Store - Minnie Baking Kit - Eggless - Sugar - Cookie - Eggfree - Cookie

  • It’s no surprise I’m a huge Las Vegas fan—and with good reason. Where else can you go watch a concert, gamble, rent a pool party cabana, eat at a five star restaurant at midnight, dance the night away plus get room service at any given time? .
These are just a few reasons why I continue to come back. And since I’m a December baby and love Vegas, pools and summer weather, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate a 1/2 birthday in Sin City right before I hit the big 4-0 (gulp!). .

Up on the blog today, top 5 reasons why you should book your next trip to Las Vegas and celebrate yours too! Link in profile. AD @caesarspalace #LikeACaesar #lasvegas #caesarspalace #birthday

  • 💦Are you team pool or team beach? 🏖 ¿ Eres equipo alberca (piscina) o equipo playa? .
.
I definitely love both but not a fan of bringing the beach sand home. 😆 We loved staying at @omnilacosta in Carlsbad, CA as they have a sandy beach family pool. It’s truly the best of both worlds. 🙌😉 #ad #omnilacosta #sandiego #familytravel
  • #ad  Where do your kids do their school and art work? For us, it's definitely the kitchen. So it made sense to create a workstation that stores our kiddos art, crafts and school materials in our kitchen island. The best part? It's easy for them to pull things out of the cabinet and place them on top of the counter as well as put everything back away. Plus, I'm also loving how @Clorox Disinfecting Wipes help me to clean, disinfect and refresh this workspace.

Mia our 7 yr old has been at summer camp at a university campus. And truth be told this is not how Lexi and I have been spending our time. I was a hot mess Monday and Lexi has been crying every morning.🙈 We know she’s having a blast in her robotics/ stem classes and making friends. So for now, I’m going to try my best to spend some quality time with my youngest. ☺️ Are you’re kids in summer camp? Were you also stressed out about leaving them? 😆 #summercamp #momlife #summer #momofgirls #summertime #summermemories #wearthesuit
