ten on tuesday

1. Sometimes I should not stay up past my bedtime to bake. Because I might add 3 sticks of butter in the dough for cookies instead of 1 1/2 sticks. And they will be thin and crispy and nowhere near as tasty as our favorite cookies normally are.
p.s. try them, but don't add 3 sticks of butter...I guarantee they will become at least in your top 3 favorite cookies;)
2. I have a lot of kitchen mistake confessions...another one added to the list yesterday. I got dinner all ready in the crock pot but um...forgot to turn it on. It "cooked" for 5 hours, then the timer went off for Shaun to add some stuff in, and he finds it off. oops!!
3. These cookies were made for Aislynn's class party last Friday and they were awesome. No mistakes were made in making these;) I am thinking these are the cookies Santa wants this year. 
4. I made this for my lunches this week and it was freakin' yummy. Roasted broccoli, who knew you were so tasty?!
5. In an attempt to incorporate more leafy greens in my diet (after I eat all of those cookies), this is next on the menu.
6. Moving on from food...I had a layout makeover on the American Crafts blog yesterday. Go check it out (p.s. there is a giveaway of the Chap collection on there!).
7. I have a page featuring Mr. Kieran in the December Bella Blvd newsletter. Check it out...there are some pretty things in there with their Christmas and Winter collections!!
8. The January My Scrapbook Nook kit is shipping to subscribers and it is beautiful. I looooove it so, this collection (Lily Bee Head Over Heels) was one of my favorites from the last CHA.
9. Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a 3 month subscription to the Nook!!
10. The Nook is doing another card kit/class and this time it is a Valentine's themed class...featuring the yummy Crate Paper Paper Heart collection! Snag your kit and spot in class HERE.

Remember, just like I tell my kids (at home and at school) without mistakes we would never learn. No way around it. Make mistakes! I'm glad they were good ones though!

So I'm looking for help with a sugar cookie recipe with royal icing. Have you ever heard of "meringue powder" and if so is it like cream of tarter? I want icing that dries on the cookie and doesn't make a mess this Christmas, so I've got some research to do!

Love the new LOs. ESP the Bella stuff!! So colorful and cheery!
