Red Velvet Valentines Cookies

I wasn't planning on baking back to back weeks, but our small group got snowed out last week and I did not want to make the {Valentines Blondies} again.  I decided to make these {Red Velvet Cookies} with a Valentines spin. 

Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Frosting

Cookie Ingredients:

Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Oil
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips

Cookie Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.   

2.  In a mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs, and oil.  Mix on medium speed for about 30 seconds.  

3.  Stir in the chocolate chips. 

4.  Using a 2 TBSP cookie scoop, scoop dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for 6 - 10 minutes.  

5.  I used this {white chocolate buttercream frosting} and added LOVEly sprinkles.

Bring it on 2015!

Hello!  It was 68 degrees in Denver today, and I am one happy {forever Texan at heart} girl.  January through April is definitely the toughest months for me.  Since I will be stuck inside for most of the next couple months I think it is time to share some of my New Years Resolutions! Is it too late to have New Years Resolution post?  I am always a little late. ;)  I have 3 goals this year annnnnd some are repeats from {last year}. 

#1  Learn how to decorate a cake {this was a 2014 fail}.  I have always wanted to take a cake decorating class, but I am thinking learning online might be a more feasible option.   

# 2 Get back to my pre wedding weight.  Did you like that order?  Decorating cakes...losing weight...haha yep, the struggle is real!  Now let me preface, I was not the bride that lost a lot of weight for my wedding.  I just want to get back to my "normal".

# 3 Have two to three blog posts a week.  This is the one I am most worried about... 

Alright, I am going to steam broccoli for the first time.  Wish me luck!
