Shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth

Mommydo.com // Melt-in-your-Mouth Shortbread (lactose-free)

Christmas Came Early So Natrel just released Lactose-Free Butter. LACTOSE-FREE BUTTER! I stuffed my daughter in the car (buckled her up tight) and proceeded to buy 5 packages. I also brought the ingredients for these shortbread cookies and a baguette. First I ate few hunks of baguette spread with glorious butter. Then I whipped up these whipped shortbread cookies. Whipped Shortbread Cookies Melt in your Mouth They are one of the first Christmas Cookies I made on my own as a little girl. And they’re still my favourite today. The recipe hails from The Harrowsmith Cookbook, and credit is given…

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

easy recipe video williams syndrome

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats I was lucky enough to win a Rice Krispies prize pack in the #treatsfortoys twitter party in December. I’m a big fan of the program where Rice Krispies donates money for toys for every toy shaped Rice Krispie Treat posted with #treatsfortoys. This year, the campaign raised $40,000. I thought I’d say Thank You for the amazing prize (which included a whole bunch of Rice Krispies AND a Visa gift card) by making a video of the first thing we made with the delivery. The whole family enjoyed these and I loved making my first food video.  …

Drunken Italian Noodles and a Green Thumb

Mommydo.com | Drunken Italian Noodles |Easy pasta recipe that's perfect for entertaining | uses fresh ingredients | 30 min or less

I just realized I haven’t posted about these noodles. Wha? I can’t believe you could have been eating these for months and instead I’ve been keeping this AMAZING recipe to myself. I feel like a bit of a jerk about that. How good are they? I now have a plant – AN ACTUAL PLANT – so I always have fresh basil to make this specific recipe. So, so good. I’m pulling the recipe from here at The Cozy Apron. If you try them and like them as much as I do – (you know, ‘go out and get the only…

Craving Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

That’s what happened to me last week. Just wanted to eat simple homemade cookies. So, I grabbed my go-to recipe that I’ve been making since I first learned how to make cookies (which isn’t hard ’cause I use the one on the back of the Chippits bag). Then I baked them. Then we ate them. Now I’m craving more classic chocolate chip cookies. Sigh. Ingredients: 1 cup – Softened butter 1 cup – Brown Sugar 1/2 cup – White granulated sugar 2 – Eggs 1.5 teaspoons – vanilla 2 cups – All Purpose Flour 1 teaspoon – Baking Soda 1/2…

The pickiest

My boy is THE pickiest eater. I’m sure it’s our own fault for about a million reasons but I’m working very hard at fixing the situation. One thing I’m trying is getting him to participate in making his own food when I can. It seems to work when we can pull it off. Last weekend I had him make is own pizza for lunch. We used the Kraft Pizza Kit which I have mentioned before that we love for a quick, homemade-ish crust in 5 min flat. Apparently he pays more attention to what’s going on around him than I…

I would give anything for Pulled Pork right now.

If you’ve ever said this…and what you meant was “I’d give almost $20 to have someone else to all the work so I could just brown some pork, plunk it in my slow cooker, pour some of the most delicious pulled pork sauce $15.99 plus tax can buy over top and have delicious pulled-pork-without-the-work for dinner, this is your post. Next time you’re at the mall, go to Williams Sonoma. Buy this sauce for $15.99. Bring it home. Brown a 2kg pork butt/shoulder. Put it in your slow cooker. Pour the sauce on. Wait what seems like a really long…

The things we do for love + Random Act

I puréed meat. Enough said. Last go round, I, like most baby food makers I know, waited to introduce meat until the boy could eat little chunks on his own. This time around, she needs the iron and she can’t handle the little chunks yet so I had two choices, buy jarred baby meat or make my own. And as grossed out as I was by making meat mush, for reasons I can’t explain, the jars grossed me out more. I commented on the gross-out factor at Obi’s developmental play group before the holidays and got some tips from a…

The 12 Treats of Christmas: #10 Gingerbread

I realize I totally left you hanging but I had good reason. My father-in-law has been ill, which meant husband was out of town for a few days. And I had a First Birthday Party to execute. Husband did return in time for the party. Thankfully, I had premade the dough for this delightful gingerbread recipe. So I was able to quickly make a batch for kids to decorate at the party. It is a ‘fancy’ gingerbread recipe – in that there are a number of ingredients. But it also a delicious, and I mean REALLY delicious one, so it’s…

The 12 Treats of Christmas: #8 Peanut Butter Marshmallow Butterscotch Squares

These things need a shorter name. They’re quick to make and don’t hang around long at all. The length of their name is kind of misleading. Though, it does spell out pretty clearly what these guys are. They could also simply call them ‘delicious squares’ and have the same end result. They remind me of my friend Marilyn’s mom, who used to bake these and keep them in the downstairs freezer… the perfect spot for sneaking from. Recipe 1 Cup creamy peanut butter 1/2 Cup butter 2 (6 oz) packages butterscotch chips 1 large package miniature coloured marshmallows Put the…

The 12 Treats of Christmas: #7 Candy Bar Brownies

Chocolate. Peanut butter. These are my favourite brownies in the world. They don’t have any candy bars in them, but taste very much like a frosted candy bar filling. I had other photos, but this one pretty much sums up my feeling on these. Recipe – I’d love to give credit for these, but my recipe photocopy has been hanging around since about 1999 and has no indication of where it’s from. 1 1/4 Cups finely crushed graham crackers (about 18 crackers) 1/4 Cup sugar 1/4 Cup finely chopped dry-roasted peanuts 1/2 Cup butter (no substitutes) melted 1/4 Cup butter…
