1943....The year Akta-Vite was first made - during WW2 for war fronts, hospitals, sick, pregnant, children and elderly by providing essential vitamins and minerals as a food supplement. So as we prepare for Christmas in 2018, just as these gorgeous kids did in 1943, let’s get baking with some delicious treats - to give away or to share at home when that unexpected guest pops in...check out our recipe page for some great Akta-Vite recipes and enjoy a vitamin and mineral enriched treat!
Very first attempt at sugar cookie cutouts with royal icing. Shocking considering how much I love to bake. These were SO much fun to make with my oldest daughter! She even rolled dough and cutout shapes. Time consuming but perfect for a cold Sunday at home..
TIP 1- I read that using cornstarch in the dough keeps the cookies from spreading, and it did!
TIP 2 - I looked at three places for affordable Christmas cookie cutters and got a set of 6 at the Dollar Tree!
TIP 3 - As far as actual decorating, parents do the icing and let kids do the sprinkles. The royal icing is delicate work.
TIP 4 - I subbed baking Splenda for the sugar in the dough because I try to limit sugar, and they turned out perfect.
6 packages filled with 3 different kinds of cookies and toasted sugared pecans/walnuts all made with so much love today, all packed up and ready to be mailed to family tomorrow. I suck at picking gifts out for people and if I cook or bake for you it’s how I show my love so that’s what my family gets every year no matter how near or far, they haven’t complained yet 😉❤️🍪🎄 #MerryChristmas#christmasbaking

Do you ever make an attempt to go Christmas shopping but just end up buying stuff for yourself? 😅😅 Oh....No? 😕 Yeah me neither......🙈 On a completely “unrelated” note I bought myself an iPad today and I’m pretty excited about it because
1. now I can buy an apple pencil and take awesome notes
2. I’ve never had an tablet/iPad before and finally feel like a cool kid 😎
3. I paid for it with my income from my coaching side hustle 🤗 Merry Christmas to MEEEEEE 🎅🏼🎄 Happy Sunday friends 💕 hope your evenings are as fun as me trying to figure out how to use this thing 😅
Happy Sunday Friends!.
I hope everyone is warm and cozy inside today, it’s a rainy one here in Vancouver!
I know I’ll definitely be having a relaxing day recharging after yesterday’s @shopandtalkmarket !! These mini sugar cookie houses were another hit, such a great little gift idea for friends! Still on cloud 9, thank you again everyone!! 💗💗💗
