Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies


Tomorrows Valentine’s Day for those of us not counting.  For some of us that lost track of time and need something to bring into work, to your children’s class or just to have something sweet to eat tomorrow – have I got the simplest recipe for you that you probably have a few of the 4 ingredients already at home. Cookies don’t get much simpler then this – and they are REALLY delicious!


* 1 Box of Cake Mix (any flavor will do – I used Red Velvet for the holiday).

* 8 oz container of Cool Whip (thawed)

* 1 egg

* 1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar

To Do:

  1. Combine the box of cake mix, egg and cool whip in a large bowl.
  2. Stir with a wooden spoon  until it is combined. (Just as a note the batter will be sticky and thick so be prepared with some extra paper towels).
  3. Now in a separate bowl place the confectioners sugar.
  4. Prep your oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Take spoonfuls of batter and drop cookie batter into the confectioners sugar – roll around to form a ball.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on your oven and the consistency you’re looking for).
  7. Remove from oven and let sit for about 3 minutes to cool and set.
  8. Place on a wire cookie rack to continue cooling.
  9. Time to Enjoy!!

This cookie will be more cake like in consistency so be prepared  its very soft and light, so you may want to double to recipe to make more as they will go fast!

Happy Snacking!!



Indulge in Panty by Post


When it comes to Valentines Day, most people think of flowers or chocolates – the usual go tos. But what about something different this year, something that will make you not only feel but look good. This is something you are going to definitely want to indulge in this year and all year-long.

Panty By Post started in Paris in August 2008 and is based in Vancouver, Canada by owner and founder Natalie Grunberg. Natalie has always been inspired by Paris and it’s no surprise she’s built a company that has distinguished itself as a unique brand with a very French twist. Customers subscribe to the service from all over the world, with the biggest following in Canada, the USA, and France.

Their mission is to spread the pleasure of French lingerie all over the world. With each pretty package, send a message of love and joie de vie (joy of life)!

Panty by Post is a monthly subscription for with many choices to pick from and two different lines. You choose the size, the style and they take care of the rest.  They offer Signature line, Premium Luxe line, Bridal line and Mens line – something for everyone!!

Prices vary depending on the frequency of the monthly subscription; but the best deal of all is the 12 month subscription at $15/month.

As you can see above I received the Paris Amour Thong in Night Stroll. With the dainty and delicate features of this panty you are sure to become a fan; a camo jewel on front and the lace touch along the side – transports me to Paris!  In my opinion I am sold – I have shopped with some very expensive panty companies before and to be honest I as never thrilled – plus even more of a perk is that it comes directly to me. No hassle going to the store, especially with a 4 month old – that doesn’t happen if at all for very long.

So make sure to treat yourself or someone special with this treat – you wont be disappointed!

As an even extra bonus – Natalie has been extremely generous to offer one lucky reader the chance to win:

(1) Single Panty by Post – valued at $30. (Added bonus: Fancy Hair Tie – valued at $5).

Be sure to enter to win – drawing ends February 28th 2014.
