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

  • 🥗Ok, you guys asked for it and I’m delivering! Fresh off the hand mixer and mixing bowl. Our homemade Orange Poppy Seed Dressing recipe. This is what really gets my kids to eat the kale. That and also because as mentioned, we use dinosaur kale 🦖 😆 Best of all? This salad dressing is the easiest to whip up and I bet you already have most of the ingredients needed in your kitchen pantry. Once you realize how easy it is to make vs buy, I’m hoping you’ll switch to the dark side. I love being able to modify the sugar intake. 😆😉 Ingredients 
1/4 c freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbs honey
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1/3 c yogurt of choice - my kids love Simple Truth organic vanilla bean Greek yogurt 
1/4 EVO or avocado oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs poppy seeds

  • When you hear the word summer, what comes to mind? .

I think about warm weather, the beach, pool time, eating outdoors and drinking a delicious glass of rosé. 😋 And if you’ve been following me for awhile you know I love me some good wine and I’m a huge fan of @garyvee So when I heard Gary launched @empathywines I couldn’t wait to try the rosé. And not just saying it because I’m a fan of his but seriously so so good! Go to my stories to check it out. #empathywines

  • This week, I made a promise to myself only this time, I’m choosing not to break it! 
As moms, we always put our kids, significant others, family, friends, work, etc. before us. Amiright? 🙋‍♀️ How many times have you committed and always made the extra effort to show up? Yet when we make a promise to ourselves we give up. That goes for everything not just that “workout” time. I’m talking about your dreams, your goals, aspirations whether it be in life, health, love, mental state whatever it is. Ladies, remember to be good to yourselves too. Don’t be that flaky friend that always leaves you hanging. And don’t get me wrong, I’m learning that keeping my promises I make to myself are possibly the hardest things to show up for. The mind is sooo powerful and loads my head with excuses and mom guilt. But I’m not giving up on myself and I hope you don’t either. We got this! 🙌 Shout out to @msrachelhollis for writing a book that helped me realize this! #motivation💪
  • What's your favorite summer salad to whip up at home?🥗 ¿Cuál es tu ensalada favorita para preparar en casa durante el verano?.
.
This Orange Poppy Seed Kale Salad is our fav. How do I get my kids to eat it? We use dinosaur kale because its bumpy leaves resembles what dinosaur skin looked like and my girls love dinosaurs. 🦖 😆 Also, I make this super easy salad dressing using ingredients we already have. Homemade salad dressing is way better than store bought as you control what actually goes into it. Total win-win.

  • How was your Mother’s Day weekend? 💐
.
.
I was so excited to go back to a restaurant my husband and I found back when I was pregnant with Lexi. We had gone on a date night and loved that it gave a historic vibe and that it was all outdoor dining. Surrounded by gorgeous flowers and their outdoor furniture was on point. We kept talking about this place for 3 years (I know, crazy!) but just never actually made the effort to go back. So on Saturday we made the effort. And guess what? .
.
Turns out the family owned business was forced to shut down a year ago to make way for apartments. It was heartbreaking to hear. But then my 7 yr old said “mami, it doesn’t matter where we eat as long as we’re together.” Geez! Who is this kid? 😆 She was so right. So we ate somewhere else which had outdoor seating and then it started pouring rain. We rushed inside the restaurant.🤣 Did you catch my stories? After the storm passed, a beautiful rainbow 🌈 showed up. 😊#familytime #myhappyplace #creatingmemories #misamores
