Featured Etsy Shop: Peapods Cookies

If you’ve signed up for our Vintage Sesame Street Giveaway you’ll recognize these cookies from Peapods Cookies:

Elmo Birthday Cookies from Peapods Cookies

Kristie is a super talented cookie aficionado from New York.  She makes some of the cutest cookies we’ve seen on Etsy (her icing technique is to die for- she’s such an artist!).  Speaking of New York, Kristie made some fabulous “Big Apple” themed cookies that would be perfect for a New York wedding or birthday party:

I think the little hotdogs are so cute!

We’ve been thinking about how cute an Alice and Wonderland  birthday party would be over here at tumblewee and I think these little teacup cookies would be perfect (the “eat me” and “drink me” – so cute!):

Bright Colors Tea Party from Peapods Cookies

And if you’re having a business event (or some really neat themed social media party), check out these cookies:

I could almost die over these Social Media Cookies - so clever!

Makes me want to design a social media party just for the heck of it . . . and to eat these cookies.

Make sure to check out her other cute designs at her etsy shop Peapods Cookies and maybe buy a couple goodies for your next big event.  Jax tells us that the cookies are not only good looking but good tastings as well (OK so he can’t really talk so he didn’t tell us per se but he did gobble up and elmo for his birthday)!



Monday Meals: Blueberry Baked Oatmeal!

Ok, it’s Monday! Both Meg and I are experiencing a hectic week already.  I just had to share this fabulous recipe I found this weekend for baked oatmeal.  I must tell you, the RAGE . . . it’s all true . . . baked oatmeal IS amazing.

We found the recipe on tastespotting.com (think pinterest but for FOOD!).  The recipe is from Becky Bakes:

Here’s the low down to make and bake!

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal (Becky’s original suggestion in parentheses)

  • 1 1/4 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2  large eggs (I used egg replacer)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¾ cups butter, divided (I used Earth balance)
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 4 tbsp.  brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350° F. Melt butter; pour 1/4 cup into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle blueberries and 2 tbsp of brown sugar on top of the butter. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together the soy milk, honey, eggs, remaining butter and vanilla.
In a large bowl, whisk together oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour over the fruit and smooth the top. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tbsp. of brown sugar.
Bake at 350°F for 40 to 50 minutes, or until browned on top and fruit is bubbly. Allow to cool slightly. Serve with milk or cream. This would also be fantastic topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt.

I actually used a 1/4 cup of maple syrup in place of honey since Jax isn’t quite old enough yet.  But man – I can’t wait to use honey.

We had it with milk over the top.  It’s so good!  We have a little left over also, which will be great as leftovers for the next couple of days (if it lasts that long).  I don’t know about you, but I always need to get meals ready fast.  Zapping a square of this in the microwave for Jax in the morning will make my life super easy!  Not to mention – Jax LOVED it, which he has become a bit of a picky eater as of late.

LOVE . . . and a must try!

ENJOY! ash
