Red Velvet, White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

 Are you ready to celebrate Valentines Day? It is one of my FAVORITE holidays! Single or married I have always LOVED this holiday! When I was single I honored how strong I was as an independent woman, I knew who I was as a person, which I think many people forget to do. Being married I enjoy spoiling my husband more than receiving anything from him. I love to show him how much I love and appreciate him! One way is to his stomach! Introducing these yummy cookies! I tweaked the recipe from Life in the Longhouse! They came out SO GOOD!

Let me know what you think!


  1. 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 1/2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  3. 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 7 Tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  6. 6 Tablespoons vegetable shortening, at room temperature
  7. 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 1 large egg yolk
  10. 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  11. 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  12. 1 Tablespoon red food coloring
  13. 1 cups white chocolate chips, divided

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Place aside!
  2. Add butter, shortening and sugar to the bowl of an electric stand mixer and mix on medium speed until very fluffy, about 3 or so minutes. Add egg, egg yolk and mix until combined. Then add vinegar, vanilla and food coloring. Mix until well blended.
  3. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Scoop dough out by the heaping Tablespoonful, and roll into balls. Place balls on a parchment lined baking sheet. Gently press about 4-5 more white chocolate chips into the top of each ball. Being careful not to flatten the balls. This will make the chips stay on top rather then sink inside the cookie!
  4. Bake cookies for 6-7 minutes. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

You can eat these yummy cookies right away or you can freeze them for up to three months!

Introducing Ell G Tees:

I have been a dental assistant by trade for 16 years. I recently quit my career to stay home with our newborn baby. I had a very hard time with the adjustment and decided to take on a project. I looked into the screen printing t-shirt business because we order many and I thought it could be something I do from home on my own time. I am very new to the business but looking forward to becoming an entrepreneur. I am focussed on excellent customer service. I see too often people not putting the effort into customer service and I think it is the single most important part of business. Without great customer service, you can not have great customers. This business is giving me a purpose again and building my character all while making some extra money on the side. I am so grateful for the opportunity and appreciate you stopping by and reading my story. I should say OUR story. Without the support of my loving husband and the help of my 12 year old son, I would not be able to continue my business. It has been a great experience and I look forward to the future.

Wine labels and Christmas Decor

Ever try to get a wine label off to do a DIY project? Well here is the easiest way!

Fill your sink with HOT water! Fill wine bottle with hot water and place in sink. Put dish soap and sprinkle baking soda inside the sink! Pour 1/2 cup of vinegar in sink and watch the magic happen...


Now for my next  project I wanted to decorate my dining room table for Christmas!

I spray painted three wine bottles white..

As the paint was drying I threw fake snow on the bottles. You can get this from any craft store! 

I used real greens from outside and pinecones to decorate the table! I also purchased the white twigs from a craft store as well!

I used clear ornaments that I also spray painted and threw white snow on!

How I did the napkins..
