ETTAbles with Kristin and Etta!!

We can't get enough of this girl.  She's a special something, I know that much, so we thought we'd share.  She has been in love with the idea of cooking shows since she first watched one with me a year or so ago, and LOVES to narrate any of our cooking projects.  We finally set it up, and recorded her first episode.  It has actually always been a dream of mine to have a cooking show, but for now, I'll let her have the spotlight, she really deserves it (and demands it, you might say, haha).

Birthday Cake Cookies

A little secret... these are just my chocolate chip cookies, but with white chocolate chips.. and sprinkles!!  Our first Ettables episode recipe.. hope you enjoy!

1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/3 c. butter
2 eggs
1 T. vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
¾ t. salt
12 oz. white chocolate chips
2-3 T. rainbow sprinkles

cream together sugar, brown sugar, and butter, until completely smooth; make sure to scrape bottom of the bowl
add eggs to butter mixture and blend thoroughly, scrape bottom of bowl, then add vanilla, mix well
add about half the flour, mix thoroughly, then add the rest of the flour with the baking soda and salt mixed in; the dough should just barely be dry enough so it doesn’t stick to your fingers
add chocolate chips and sprinkles!
use a spoon, or a cookie scoop; you should fit about 12 on a buttered pan; bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, until edges are just turning brown; if the bottom of your cookies tend to brown, put a sheet of foil under your pan, shinny side down.

Back to the blog...

My favorite little 4-year old in the whole world has inspired me a bit.  Due to her love of cooking and cooking shows we've decided to start a little project, and it has set me in high gear!  We'll be posting our "epidsodes" of Ettables here on the blog!  Hopefully we'll get a few up before I go back to school.  Life is busy, with 3 little ones, school and just trying to enjoy life, so we'll see what we can do.

I mean.. can you blame me!?  I've been snuggling babies and trying to finish nursing school the past few years and it is just going by so fast.
