Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 20

TGIF! In my many trips to Hobby Lobby for supplies for the baby sprinkle, I was shocked by how much Christmas decor and craft items were available in JULY. Then I thought, people who would be making/selling Christmas decorations would need to start crafting now. I ran across a cute decoration for a front door on Pinterest. There isn’t a website or directions to go with it as it was an image “uploaded by user,” but it looks simple enough. This would be an easy to store decoration because of its size. Sometimes I feel like wreaths are just so huge and take up a lot of space!

Guess this means another trip to Hobby Lobby. Happy crafting! Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for visiting.

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

I took advantage of a quiet Sunday afternoon and got back in the kitchen to bake. I was craving a warm chocolate chip cookie. When I traveled for work I often stayed at Hyatt Place hotels and one located in Dallas would heat up a chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie for me almost every night. It was a simple comfort of home that made hotel living easier to handle. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

8 Tbsp. butter, softened
½ cup sugar
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1½ cups all purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips (I used ½ cup milk chocolate and ½ cup white chocolate)

1. Preheat oven to 350°
2. Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add vanilla and egg, beat until incorporated
3. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Add chocolate chips until incorporated
4. Drop by the spoonful onto greased baking sheet. Makes about 12 cookies.
5. Bake for 13-18 minutes, until edges are slightly brown
6. Let cool and serve

Until next post…xoxo Becca
