Jar Recipes.. Have you heard of them?

I recently put together a Valentine's day goodie bag for one of my daughter's  class.  This jar contained homemade yumminess at it's simplest form in a prepackaged jar.  All the dry ingredients to a chocolate chip cookie mix.  The only ingredients needed to complete the recipe was some non salted butter and an egg  

I have to admit the idea is not innovative at all.  I received one as a gift years ago that was purchased from a huge company who's flagship is in San Francisco's Union Square.  As a recipient of one these nifty jars, fast forward a few years,  I though it was perfect for Valentine's day to share some love in the kitchen with the little loves in our lives.  I hope that when they receive them, they will love them as much as I did when I received mine.  Used a simple chocolate cookie recipe, I substituted the chocolate chips with Valentine M&M's which was placed on top of all the dry ingredients. Printed out a recipe, poshed it up added a little Valentine flair and they were ready to go.

Little did I know, there were actual recipes called "jar recipes," shared by a fan from my FB page.  Jaclyn of KC Accessories was kind enough to share a few recipes with me that I am dying to try.  After a few comment exchanges and emails going back and forth, I thought to share the recipe with you in the event you would like to make these for someone you care about.  I personally think, it would be a great idea for when you are visiting friend on a play date or even a luncheon. 

Jaclyn has more "jar recipes" and would love to share them with you.  Send her an email with one of your recipes and she would share one of hers with you.  Thank you Jaclyn for the recipe~~

REWARDS - "One for you too~" Getaway Comment

We are always shopping for our little princesses that sometimes we just don't have the time or the energy to splurge on ourselves. Here's the solution. One free clip (valued at $19) for mommy along with your purchase.

Make a comment on on my blog, become a follower and shop your heart out.  Comment should be about your recent Mommy getaway, your Mommy getaway plans or the ultimate mommy dream getaway you're hoping for.

I'm sure we can all relate that once in awhile we all need to getaway. Whether it be a night out with just the ladies or a long luxurious weekend at a spa getaway.  It might even be a "Hey hubby, take the kids out to lunch, so I can get a bath and maybe read a few pages of the book I've been putting off."  We all love our kids so much and do everything for them, but even a couple of hours to ourselves can  really rejuvenate and soothe the soul.  So how about a little shopping for the princess and get a little reward yourself for being such a fantabulous mommy.
