Well, it turns out gluten free baking is my new thing. (I either need to start running or stop eating because oh my, quarantine 15 may be a real thing!) My favorite baked good thus far are these amazing cookies! They remind me a lot of my favorite Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies (Paula Deen) but they are a tad healthier?! They are called “Brookie Cookies” because they are thick and fudge-like a brownie but in the shape of a cookie.
I saw these in a Gluten Free group on Facebook and everyone loved them! Well, I can attest my crew devoured them and so did I! You can use regular flour too of course, but I used GF. It replaces butter with coconut oil, so you do have to enjoy coconut flavor for this recipe.
They do need to chill in the fridge so that you can roll them and bake, so just build that little bit of time in when baking!
My skin has been out of control. I have been trying several different samples of facial, lotions and potions. I feel like it’s hormonal and stress, but it’s most likely all the cheese too. Either way, I’m really working on my skin and using it as self-care.
Enter said cheese: Tuesday seemed like a perfectly acceptable day to enjoy some Charcuterie and a mimosa.
Thursday we went live on Facebook and Instagram. We are loving our “Jenn & Joe Show” and would love to have you stop by and say hello! We talk all things real estate, rent to own, credit repair etc. Thursdays at 3pm est! (Joe is also putting together a bloopers video so stay tuned for that nonsense as well!)
I made a delicious Apple Celery Juice from The Medical Medium.
4-5 celery stalks.
4 inches of ginger.
Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and serve in a jar because it looks cool and all.
Brooke and Joe went to the land with Bailey and I decided to organize and clean out the office/craft area. Since we spend so much time in the office now, it was so cluttered with the kids stuff it was hard to concentrate. Plus I didn’t have any “desk space” since Joe took back his desk. We are so happy to have the clutter removed. (I may have thrown out a whole bag of garbage from throughout the last 7 years!)
Brooke is taking to dressing like the characters on Just Dance.
We’ve been eating great and brainstorming a ton with our businesses. Other than the weather, we really can’t complain!! I am seriously hoping the sun comes back soon and we get some hot weather. Our bodies need it!
What were some feel good moments for you this past week?
