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

  8. Remove dough from refrigerator and stamp with star and circle shapes
  9. Place on baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes

  • I'm that mom that procrastinates sending out holiday cards. Truth be told, one year I actually sent them out NYE. But guess what? This year I'm so on top of it and just mailed these cuties out.
.
.
And I love sending holiday cards but these ornament cards are always a big hit with our friends & family. Love that they can be saved and used year after year. Plus, I can see how much our girls have grown in each ornament. Thanks to @minted for having our back 3 yrs in a row and for their time saving services.😘🙌

  • FAO Schwarz makes its return to NYC. And guess what??!We were invited to check it all out this past Wednesday! Right before it opened its doors to the public. 😱 You guys, this store is seriously beyond magical. 🌈 And according to the girls, they had the best day ever! 🤩Grocery shopping, getting their hair and nails painted and even got to dance on the biggest walk-on piano keyboard with their daddy. .

  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️
.
.
So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .
.
Be sure to peep our stories throughout our stay this week because we’re also going to be attending a preview of the much anticipated NEW @faoschwarz store opening in Rockefeller Plaza!!! And check back for a full recap on the blog when we return to CA. There’s going to be an amazing GIVEAWAY that will surely help jumpstart your holiday shopping, too! #takebackchildhood
  • Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? Where did the time go? We're definitely excited over here and are getting a head start. Starting with our traditional holiday ‪pj's‬. You all know we love matching so when the girls unboxed these adorable Emoji mommy+me Holiday ‪pj's‬ from @childrensplace they were so excited and couldn't wait to put them on. And truthfully, I couldn't either. Plus, they're ultra soft and cozy too!

  • The weather is finally starting to cool down in Southern California. Actually, let me rephrase that. The weather is finally cooling down in the evenings and early mornings around here. 🤣

So that means it’s all about cozy sweaters & all the hot coffee. ☕️ Trust me when I say this cute color block sweater has been on repeat. Check out our latest post on how I found it. It’s so inexpensive. 😉👏 And do you have anything currently on repeat too? 😁#sweaterweather 📸 @lilyro_
