Fridays Scissors and Cream (Candy Cane/heart cookies,Grilled burritos)

For those who are new to our blog I have taken on the challenge to broaden my domestic goddess talents. I will be posting "first attempts" to crafts and recipes each week for your entertainment success or total failure! I call these my Friday's scissor and cream posts. Enjoy...

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to post these cookies I made with the girls I nanny during the holiday season. Luckily, we made heart shapes out of the extra dough from the candy canes. This can be my v-day recipe for you all. I am not too into v-day, the color pink or hearts so, this holiday seems to slip my mind pretty easily. Usually by this time of the year I am just getting back in the groove of things and finally feeling a full recovery from the crazed holidays.

I found these cute candy cane cookies on Pintrest from a blog HERE. I used my sugar cookie recipe from HERE (with added lemon extract instead of almond) I was a 1/2 c short of flour so I used wheat flour. WHAT A MISTAKE. I liked the cookies but it was very controversial about the wheat flour taste.

Another gem I found on Pintrest.... THIS recipe was SO tasty I am so thankful she shared it! I have never grilled our own burritos before and surprised how much it improves the overall taste of the whole dinner! We plan on making a ton of these to freeze and save for a lazy dinner. mmm (sorry about both of these crappy pictures...couldn't figure out the white balance :/)

Grilled stuffed burritos sound amazing. I'm going to have to try and do that at home.
