Thankful Thursday | It doesn’t feel like August out!

The Frugal Girl

I love that I know how to make yeast bread because it makes such a good thank you gift for people; it’s not as common as homemade cookies, cakes, or brownies, and that makes it slightly more special. This week, I am thankful: for a nice long string of cooler weather.

How to Organize a Cookie Swap

Family Balance Sheet

What’s your favorite Christmas cookie? I grew up baking cut out Christmas cookies with my mother and grandmother. They’re like a sugar cookie, but they are very crisp. While I love to bake, baking many different kinds of Christmas cookies is just too overwhelming for me and my schedule. But several years ago, I was invited to my first cookie swap at my moms group and it turns out, I don’t need to bake so many different types of cookies.

Lunches: Soups & Homemade Breads – The BEST EVER Enchilada Soup (more often in the fall & winter, less in the summer).

A Sweeter Way to Cook Your Budget

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

I like to bake cookies, and I like to budget. I’m ashamed to say it, but there was a period in my life where I stopped baking cookies. If you’ve ever eaten homemade cookies before, you’ve probably tasted the Toll House recipe. It cooks up a flat, crunchy cookie, provided you follow the baking times. In other words, the recipe makes the exact opposite of what I truly want: a nice, thick and moist cookie. From that moment on, cookies were off my menu.
