January 1st 2019, I started out with a very clear intention to be 100% more present in my personal life and STOP pushing all of the amazing things I enjoy so much off to the side. Seems easy right? and it should be a super easy life task, but here is the thing for me it requires a monumental amount effort to me to make a change this big in the new year. If you haven’t already read our January BLOG “Cheer’s It’s a Restart” then you will understand that I’m an busy entrepreneur, home flipper and mom to 3 beautiful babies and any amount of left over time I had in the past, would end up in the volunteer pit (because I feel a ton of mom guilt, like all the time if I don’t). Last year felt like a never ending hamster wheel on replay, just spinning and getting know where fast. I was always feeling really exhausted and tired all the time, because I would be engulfed in work projects and have nothing left for my personal space.

For the past 31 days, I have journaled every day faithfully with two clear personal intentions; 1. My personal daily goal and 2. Something that I’am grateful for, it takes less than 3 minutes every morning and it is a life changer.

My day starts off like this:

Write down my daily goal, for me it has been lately “Be the best version of myself”

Everybody LOVES Chocolate Chip Cookies

You know what makes everyone feel happy; its simple a chocolate chip cookie.

I’ am a mom of three beautiful babies and cookies in our house don’t last long, our house is always an open door between friends and family dropping by and cookies are the best to share. I love baking homemade goodies because you are in control of the ingredients. This recipe is a classic chocolate chip, adapted by trial and error from a few different Pinterest searches. Our family favourite to the perfect chocolate chip cookie is; crispy outside, chewy and soft inside than melts in your mouth.  

These cookies are a weekly bake on my list, and a staple in my kid’s lunch boxes, we all love chocolate chip cookies, I mean what kid doesn’t. This is a great activity to get everyone involved in the kitchen especially kid’s.

 

  • 2 cups             All Purpose Flour

  • 1 cup               White Sugar

  • 1 cup               Brown Sugar  

  • 2 Eggs Room Temperature

  • 1 cup               Unsalted Butter

  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

  • 1 Teaspoon    Baking Soda

  • 2 Cups             Semi Sweet Chocolate Chip

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a mixer, beat butter for 2 mins until creamy texture, add sugar both brown and soft, slowly beating until it changes colour. Add vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda.

Slowly add dry mixture in the wet mixture, do not over mix.

Add chocolate chips.

Drop spoon cookie batter, onto cookie baking sheets. I like to line the baking sheets with parchment paper, I find this allows cookies not to burn on the bottom.

 Bake for 10-12 mins until warm brown, for softer cookies adjust less bake time, for crispy cookies increase bake time.
