Happy October! #Pillsbury Pumpkin #Cookies

YAY! October is here!!

Time to celebrate so ..... I brought out my Pillsbury™ Shape™ Pumpkin Sugar Cookies for the kids to have fun with ....

Too bad I completely messed up pulling off the parchment paper properly and they came off the pan looking like this ... 😆

Thankfully they taste just as good no matter what they look like. **hehee**

Though this post is in NO WAY sponsored because -- hey man they are a tradition -- check out their page to get some more info!

Are you a fan of these pre-created cookies too?

Happy #Pancake Day!! #breakfasttime #foodie

Or was it yesterday ... ? To tell you the truth I am not sure as I found two different websites that had different dates on them .... oh wells. But either way I am celebrating with you by sharing this little video that I had created a while back. I hope you enjoy the silliness of it all! 😆 😁 😋

Boy Land - Nana's 2nd Decorative Cake for Her Grandchildren | #BirthdayCake #FromJesstoYou

For my Son's 2nd Birthday (in December 2015) we really could not pin down what theme to do ... so we went for it all! Nana (my mother) created this cake and came up with the items she new my son would appreciate the most. I'm calling it her Boy Land cake and it was another success! Plus, everything used on that cake both of my kids still play with even though almost three years has passed! Please check out the photos below.

Princess Castle - Nana's 1st Decorative Cake for Her Grandchildren | #BirthdayCake #FromJesstoYou

In May 2015 my mother (Nana) decided to create my then 4-year-old Daughter's Birthday Cake instead of ordering one. Nana decided on creating a Princess Castle for her Princess and it was quite the success (please check out the photos below)!!

The cake was a box one that was a purple swirl. My daughter loved it!

I was quite proud, especially since it was the first time for her to take something like this on!

KISSES Candy Cane Blossoms | Hershey's @HersheyCompany #fromjesstoyou #dessert

** I first found this recipe on the back of the Hershey's Kisses bag (see below photos) in December 2014. Check out Hershey's website for more info. **
  • 48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Candy Cane Mint Candies
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick), softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 cup red or green sugar crystals, granulated sugar or powdered sugar for rolling
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.
  2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  3. 3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar or a combination of any of the sugars. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 48 cookies.
My Attempt/Success with this Recipe :

Recipe/Ingredients Changes : I didn't change a thing!

My Family's Verdict :

My Thoughts : These were my first attempt in baking cookies for my daughter's school teachers ... and it worked out well that my daughter was able to help make them too. I would definitely bake/make them again. However, you really need to be a peppermint fan for you to truly enjoy this version.

My 3-year-old Daughter's Thoughts : LOVED making them as they were easy and very interactive for her age. Plus she enjoyed eating them too.

Gift Receiver's Thoughts : They raved about them! But whether that was because of the gesture in receiving them OR because they actually liked them still remain to be seen. =0)

Paleo Almond Butter Cookies | Simply Taralynn @TaralynnsTweets #fromjesstoyou #dessert

To read the full Paleo Almond Butter Cookies recipe by Simply Taralynn click here.

My Attempt/Success with this Recipe :

Recipe/Ingredients Changes : It worked out very well, except all I could find at the time was crunchy almond butter.

My hubby first found this recipe in October 2013.

My Family's Verdict :

My Thoughts : We all really liked them. A little dry but tasty! However, they were VERY crumbly and I'm not sure if that was because of the crunchy almond butter OR just how the cookies are typically.
