When you’re watching carbs but still crave something sweet.
Yield: 2 dozen 2 inch cookies
Bake: 9-11 minutes
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup almond flour
2/3 cup monkfruit baking sweetener
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F, line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, combine baking powder, salt, almond flour and sweetener. Set aside.
I another mixing bowl stir together coconut oil egg, and vanilla. Add in dry ingredients and stir to combine. Add in chocolate chips.
Divide dough in half. Scoop out dough by tablespoon and roll into a ball, place on baking sheet. Repeat with rest of dough. Continue with other half and place on 2nd baking sheet-these cookies will not spread.
Bake for 9-11 minutes until lightly browned. Place on rack to cool.
Are you a reseller? You don’t need to buy Thank You cards!
I’m cheap. I’m here to make money not spend money. Yes, I have spent money on Thank You cards in the past. I thought I was being cheap by getting these at the dollar store and even the thrift store. Now I know better.
I don’t have a thermal label printer, maybe someday. I print my labels the old fashioned way, with plain old paper and a printer. ( I use refurbished ink ) Then I use a paper cutter to cut the label to size, (cutting the label with scissors got old). The longer portion on the bottom is the perfect size for a Thank You card, just fold in half. Your customer will appreciate a nice hand written thought, whether on a card or a note.
Yes, Thank You cards are cute and yes, they get tossed. Save yourself some time and money using one of these paper choppers!
Who doesn’t love Nutella? Nutella has become a staple in our pantry. Here’s a simple enough recipe for a breakfast biscuit with Nutella. Part biscuit, part scone and just enough to nibble on all morning.
Nutella Drop Biscuits
Makes about 10-12 small biscuits
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, cold
1 cup buttermilk
1/2-1 cup Nutella
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Combine all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
3. Cut cold butter into small cubes. Add butter cubes to dry ingredients and with 2 forks, pastry blender (my favorite and easiest) or fingertips, mix well. Mixture will start to look like coarse cornmeal, keep working until all chunks of butter are mixed in.
4. Add buttermilk and stir enough just to blend.
5. Drop Nutella by the spoonful, stirring gently after every spoonful. Start with 1/2 and add to taste. I go with 1 cup.
6. Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet, 6 per sheet, leaving room to expand. Bake 12-15 minutes.
Have you been wondering how to add the clickable link to you Poshmark items? I’m sure you’ve asked several people and ended up with many partial answers. I asked and with the combined help of 4 instagram users along with google, I got it!
Please note-I am not a technical computer talking person, I use tap and click and follow the words as directions.
First, make sure you have a Facebook business account. If you already have a Facebook account, you will need to create a business page off that account-you can only have 1 Facebook account.
Next, Make sure your instagram is a business account. It’s easy to switch. On your profile tap the 3 bars at the top right. Go to settings, account, switch to Professional account, click business. You will need to connect your Facebook business to this instagram, don’t forget this part.
Now that your instagram is a business account and attached to a Facebook business account-you will need to submit you instagram account for review in order to be able sell hard goods. Go to Business on your instagram account, and tap instagram shopping, follow the steps and submit for review. This will take a few days and can take over a week to be approved.
Come back here next week…..
Once you are approved, you have to add items to your catalog in Facebook. From here, they will be available in your shop on instagram and will be able to add to your posts.
You will need photos of your item and the Poshmark link to add an item. Have these handy and ready to add to your catalog? Let’s continue.
To add a product go to Facebook, go to your Business Manager, settings, Data Source, Catalogs, in Catalog Manager is where you will add your item. Go to products, add item, choose your file image, (I add the name, descriptions, Poshmark link and price). Click add product. Now your item should be in your instagram shop. Check your instagram.
To add the link on an instagram post, start your post and you should see and option to tag a product under tag a person, tap it and you will see the available products. That’s it!!!!
Do you have shoes you’ve cleaned and the shoelaces just won’t come clean?
Easy fix! You will need:
Empty water bottle
Bleach (clorox works best)
Work laces into empty water bottle and pour a 1/4 cup bleach, fill with warm water. Cover water bottle tightly with lid and shake. Leave in sink and give it a shake every once in a while. Mine usually take a couple of hours. Remove lid carefully and pour out bleach water, shake and work laces out of bottle, rinse completely and let air dry.
Cochitos, marranitos, puercitos, whatever you want to call them, they are delicious.
Yield: 16 4-5 inches each
Bake: 13 min
1/4 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup molasses
1/4 cup milk
5-6 cups all purpose flour
1 egg for egg wash
Preheat oven to 350f. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In mixer bowl, cream together brown sugar and shortening.
Add in vanilla, cinnamon and baking soda.
Add egg and molasses. Stir in milk.
Add in flour 1 cup at a time, you will use about 5-5 1/2 cups of flour. The dough should be thick enough to roll out.
Working with 1/2 of the dough, roll out onto floured counter 1/4 inch and use a pig shaped cutter to cut and place on baking sheet 2 inches apart. I’ve made these with a 5 inch pyrex bowl to cut out into circles, in case you do not have a pig cutter.
Gather pieces, reroll and place onto sheets. Continue with the rest of the dough. If using circles-I end up with 16, when using a 4 inch pig cutter-I end up with 20.
Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of cookies to remove excess flour.
In a small bowl, beat egg. Brush the tops of each cookie with egg wash.
Bake for 13 – 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool immediately.
