Perfectly Chewy Gingersnap Molasses Cookie Recipe

There isn’t a sweet treat I prefer more than a warm chewy cookie fresh from the oven.

Do you like them chewy or crisp? Though I do partake in a crispy cookie every once in a while, my heart belongs to the chewy cookie family.

This recipe is a spin on gingersnaps. The difference is this chewy cookie recipe is, yes chewy, but also a little more flavorful due to the molasses.

If you like those “spice” type cookies, you know the ones like gingersnaps or pumpkin flavored, then you are going to LOVE this recipe!

This is one of the most flavorful, thick and perfectly chewy cookie recipes I have ever tasted! It takes the flavor of homemade gingersnaps up a notch. These soft and chewy cookies will turn out perfect the first time you make them! Continue Reading →

Freezing Fruit for Smoothies

We love smoothies in our house! It doesn’t matter what time of the year, we will always eat them. You might find us huddled around our kitchen table wrapped up in layers of sweatshirts and blankets because we are freezing. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside, we will keep drinking this frozen treat!

One of the reasons it is a constant in our home is because I love that my kids will actually be eating something healthy! My kids are uber-picky eaters and feeding them smoothies is one way I can easily get some nutrition into their little bellies.

Here is a recipe for one of our very favorite smoothies!

The hard thing about this is that frozen fruit can be super expensive! Not only is the price hard to handle sometimes but the flavor of store bought frozen fruit is not always wonderful. The solution, start freezing fruit on your own! You will save at least 50%!
