Happy February!

January felt like it flew by and crept along all at the same time. We were stuck in the Polar Vortex this week, so with no school or activities for a couple of days, we hunkered down at home and did lots of playing (and a little cookie baking!).

This weekend we are celebrating my father-in-law’s birthday and, of course, watching the Super Bowl! (If you still need some food inspiration, check out my 90+ Super Bowl Food Ideas.) What do you have planned? I’d love to hear what you’re going to make for the big game!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Joseph and Dominic asked to make sugar cookies while Isabelle napped one afternoon this week; I googled “no chill sugar cookies” to save some time and found these easy sugar cookies, which turned out fantastic! You don’t need to get the butter to room temperature and you don’t need to chill the dough, the dough was great to work with, the cookies didn’t spread, turned out soft and chewy, and they tasted fabulous. Perfect for a quick kitchen project with kids. Highly recommend!
