We made these two today.
The first was a simple fruit snack made with watermelons and blueberries.
The second was a dozen of homemade cupcakes using coconut sugar instead of white sugar. Of course, we made red, white, and blue frosting with star sprinkles.
One of the most things I love doing with BirBir is baking cookies. While it can get a little messy at times, I still love the time we spend together making them. She LOVES to take part in every step: from scooping the flouring and putting it in the bowl, to cracking the eggs and whisking them together. It’s a great learning opportunity for her and a great memory for both of us 🙂
One of my favorite, go-to recipe, which I always use when making sugar cookies, is a recipe I found at Bake at 350. I follow it as is, but instead of the white sugar, I substitute it with coconut sugar (I use this brand) and everything else stays the same.
It’s very simple to follow and the results are so yummy! Since I use coconut sugar, mine come out a bit brownish in color, unlike a normal sugar cookie. However, the taste is splendid!
Give it a try and tell me what you think!
So I’m on a mission to find some nice lunchboxes and bento boxes for BirBir now that she will be starting preschool next month.
While searching, I stumbled upon the Yumbox.
First of all, I love how they are divided into compartments. This way the food can remain nice and neat.
Next, I love how the lid is leakproof.
Of course, since it’s reusable, no need to use plastic or paper brown bags. Yaay to being GREEN!
