Dear Jason...

A year ago today my life changed. God gave me the gift of becoming a mother. Thank you for making my life brighter. When you look at me with those big eyes of yours you make my heart melt. I want you know that I will always be the rock you need to keep you grounded. The best friend you need when you need a hand to hold. The shoulder you need to cry on. And your cuddle buddy when you have a bad dream. I love you little man and thank you for blessing my life everyday.

 With Love,
Your Momma

Coconut Macaroons

I am back!! So here is an update on what has been going on:
  • The hubby got back from San Diego
  • We moved from South Carolina to Miami
  • Got the house unpacked and organized
  • Planning the little man's first birthday party (which by the way is this Sunday!)
  • Spending a lot of family time together before the hubby goes back to work
I am so happy to start blogging again!! Ok now on to the recipe. I made these coconut macaroons for my mommy, which she loved. They are so easy to make and extremely yummy. 

  • 5 Cups of Flaked Coconut
  • 2/3 Cups of All-purpose Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 14oz Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla extract

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Combine coconut, flour and salt in a large bowl.

Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

With a small ice cream scoop, drop coconut mixture 1 inch apart on to cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove macaroons from oven and place them on a cooling rack to cool completely.


With Love,
