Homemade Fortune Cookies

Oh my heavens - these are SO DELICIOUS, and totally easy to make. You must try this recipe!

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • food coloring (optional)
  • dipping chocolate (optional)
  • sprinkles (optional)
  • fortunes, printed and cut (optional)
1. Mix everything but the dipping chocolate and sprinkles.

2. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet and spread with the back of your spoon into 3-4 inch circles. Only do 2 or 3 at a time so you'll have time for Step 3. Bake at 300 degrees for 14 minutes. (I had to adjust for my oven, so I started at 10 minutes, and after 2 batches I lowered it to 9 minutes.)

3. Work quickly! Scrape off the cookie, turn it upside-down and lay your fortune inside. Fold the circle in half, then holding the cookie by the edges press down onto the edge of your mixing bowl. The cookie will mold around it. Set your cookie in a muffin tin to cool so it won't come un-molded.

(this is what you want your cookie to look like...)

 (These are what you don't want your cookies to look like. It's the result of taking too long to fold and mold them... I was trying to take the photos and I messed a few up before I finally got smart and set up the shot beforehand to save time!)

4. Melt your chocolate and dip the edge of your cookies inside then add sprinkles.

Makes 12-18 cookies.

Do it!!! They're adorable and SUPER tasty!

Ideas for St. Patrick's Day fortunes:
  • I'm so lucky to have you.
  • You're gonna get lucky. (hehe)
  • Lucky me - to have you in my life.
  • I don't need luck, I have you.
If you're LDS you can make these for Visiting Teaching treats with the fortune "We are lucky to have the scriptures" inside. It correlates nicely with March's Visiting Teaching Message. :)

This Much Card and a Kid Canvas

Father's Day ideas continued... I decided to show you the things Harvey and I made to give to Justin. First up... "I Love You This Much Card": It's super easy... 1. Trace your child's hand, then cut out two copies. My paper was double sided so I made sure that when the thumbs match up - the yellow side would be inside, and the blue side would be outside. 2. Cut out a strip of paper and fold it accordion style. Use letter rub-ons or stickers to add the words "I Love You" on the outside, and "This Much" on the strip of paper.  3. Glue the ends of your accordion strip on the insides of the hands and your card is done. :) Kid Canvas: Then Harvey and I made a little canvas (4 inches x 4 inches) to hang on the wall in Justin's office at work. I purchased small ones so we could add to them each year and hang them in one grouping. I prepainted the canvas in green, then set Harvey in the bathtub with blue paint and

Thinkin' About Dad

So.. Father's Day is in 10 days. Yeah - already. Here are a few ideas for you... Shirt Card: All you need are two papers, and two buttons. 1. Cut one paper into a piece 4 inches by 11 inches. Fold it in half so you have a card base that opens "up" and measures about 4 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall. 2. Measure one inch from the fold and draw a line 3/4 inches toward the center on both sides of your card.  Use scissors to cut through both papers at the marks. 3. Fold these pieces in to the center of the card, so the top corners meet in the middle. 4. Download this tie pattern... Here is an alternate link to download the file: Shirt Card Template ...and use it to trace and cut a tie out of your second paper. Glue your tie in the center of the card. 5. Add buttons to the collar to make it more realistic. (Or, if you want to do it digitally, go here to download an awesome template from Here are some clutter-free Father's Day gif

Cough Remedy

Our entire family has been sick. It's been awful. Harvey got it first, and he had a nasty little cough that would keep him from getting a good nap, or sleeping through the night. I remembered an e-mail I received about a month ago with a cough remedy using Vicks VapoRub, so I found it, tried it, and discovered it's amazing-ness! After both the hubby and myself contracted the nasty cough, we tried it - and it worked for us as well. Just in case you haven't got the e-mail... here is the new way to use Vicks VapoRub:
