Decorating cookies during the holidays is something we love doing! Let your creativity take over and make festive desserts!

  • Sprinkles. Sprinkles are quick and easy, and can make an ordinary cookie amazing!
  • Frosting. The right frosting can make decorating so much easier! Use a quality recipe to make sure your cookies turn out beautiful!
  • Dough. Be sure to use a cookie recipe that doesn’t change shape if you’re doing cut-out cookies. You can even change the color of the dough to make your cookies pretty!

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
