Tis The Season Chickas, Holiday Baking! #SetYourHolidayStage

#Sponsored. I know I have been a little M.I.A and trust it was not intentional but you know when November and December roll around, you’re on autopilot especially those who have kids.

I am reflecting on the use of my time in 2018 and planning how I intend on concurring 2019! In the midst, the boys having holiday functions in school. I love to use this time…this time alone to really invest in the treats they bring to school.

I’m taking part in Stage virtual holiday party this year and sharing a holiday recipe to help celebrate and #SetYourHolidayStage. In no way am I Susie homemaker but there is something about the holidays that just pick up my spirit and I fight the urge to buy store bought treats. Past time for me and the boys is homemade cookies, for teachers, staff, and administration at their annual holiday party. The appreciation for all they do in educating my young princes to become the scholars they are today!

Side note, I also like to get a few cool points for late school drop-offs guilt-free with no judgment LOL. Of course, this recipe can be duplicated for class events and the big guy Santa for those babies who still anticipate his arrival on Christmas morning.

“Crisp edges, chewy middles.”


1 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons hot water

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup white macadamia nuts


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts.      3. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.

Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned
