Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have just started to understand what it is about Blogs that people love. I came accross this Blog and it has a tone of great recipes on it. I have to show this one because I Love Red Velvet and White Chocolate. I plan on making them this weekend and once I do I will update with my own picture till now I'm using Jaclyn's from Cooking Classy.
Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yields about 2 dozen

What Y'all Need:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp white vinegar
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp red food coloring
3/4 cup white chocolate chips, divided

What to Do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt, set aside. Add butter and sugar to the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Pour vinegar over mixture and blend mixture on medium speed, about 3-4 minutes, until pale and fluffy. Add egg and mix until combine. Add vanilla and food coloring and mix until blended. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combine. Mix in white chocolate chips.* Drop cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto buttered or Silpat lined cookie sheets and bake in preheated oven 9 - 11 minutes. Allow to cool several minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store cookies in an airtight container.

*If you are going for a fancy look and want more of the white chocolate chips to show through, like the ones pictured, then pour in half of the white chocolate chips into dough and reserve the other half. Then when you place the dough balls on the cookie sheet, add about 4-5 chips to the top of each one gently pressing them into the dough being careful not to flatten the dough ball.

Birthday Idea's for Brooke!

I'm doing a cupcake theme for my daughters birthday and I keep seeing such great ideas. Thought this would be a wonderful time to share what I have seen and say Thanks to the people that have helped make planning my little girls birthday seem easy. This is going to be Fun.

I think I wanna print this out on a poster board and have it hanging on the wall. If not this I will find something. Maybe printable color sheets with cupcakes, candy and Hello Kitty.
Two Idea's for cupcake's. I'm using pink's, blue's, green's, and purple's.
 I'm 100% sure using Dum Dums for her party she Loves them!! 
 Cake Batter Flavored Popcorn yet another thing Brooke Loves. Cake Batter Blondie's. Its all about her and I wanna see her smile big.
  This Fabric TuTu is what I wanna make for Brooke to wear with a solid color shirt and cute bow. Hope maybe this makes the list of things she first remembered. These are the colors I wanna use for her party
