Christmas cookies – Shortbread

I’ve made these shortbread cookies for years.  It’s another recipe from my Aunt Jina and they are by far the best shortbread cookies I’ve ever made.  They were my grandpa’s favourite and I’d send them to him every year at Christmas. You can make the dough a day or two ahead and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to bake it, or make it way in advance and freeze the dough.  These also freeze beautifully, so they tend to get made in November and then are taken out closer to Christmas.

Wordless Wednesday – 28 weeks

I’m officially in my third trimester now, hopefully 12 weeks or less until Sprout arrives (but since his/her sister was so late, I’m betting this one won’t arrive until closer to 14 weeks from now!).

Christmas cookies – Ricotta cookies

I make these every year; the recipe came from a girl on a bridal forum I used when I was planning my wedding 4 years ago.  They taste like cinnamon buns!  Important note: I’ve posted the filling amounts as the recipe was given to me, but it makes so much that I only do half and still have some left over.  This is a great cookie for cookie exchanges because it makes a ton and it’s not really hard to do; it just takes a little bit of time because you need to chill the dough before you cut and bake Read more […]

Disney Live! Mickey’s Rockin’ Road Show: Ottawa

We are big Disney fans in this house, especially since Ashlyn has gotten old enough to have a preference for what she watches.  Playhouse Disney is a channel that I feel safe letting her watch, and she particularly loves “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and dances like a maniac every time she hears “The Hot Dog Song”! I’m so excited to share that Disney Live! Mickey’s Rockin’ Road Show will be in Ottawa at the Ottawa Civic Centre on Saturday, January 8th!   There are two shows (12:30pm and 3:30pm) Read more […]
