After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Growing up, I always wanted a sibling. I wished over every star and every birthday candle. I even asked my magic eight ball constantly if I would ever have one but as many times as it told me “all signs point to yes”, I remained an only child. I look forward to the days when my three girls appreciate that they have best friends for life... two women who will always have their back, lend them a hand or provide a shoulder to cry on. In the meantime, I make sure to create fun reasons for them to “work” together without bickering. So, I’m excited to announce that Iyla and Falynn are starting a new venture together, @thesuperkidlife and I hope you’ll follow along and show them some love. Although I will run the IG page for them for now, Iyla will be in charge of content and stories, so you’re in for a treat! They already have their first sponsored posts lined up! Stay tuned. . .

Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor for National Cookie Day, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good… the third time I made them!

I found the initial, caramel macchiato thumbprint recipe on the Betty Crocker website, though I did change it a bit. Honestly, the first two batches were a disaster. I couldn’t quite figure out how to incorporate the caramel without making a HUGE mess or making our fingers super sticky. The first time, I tried the thumbprint on top of the cookie and it kind of melted all over the place. The second time, I drizzled it all over the top of each cookie and they were really hard to handle. While they were yummy, our hands were super sticky.

My Nana always told me if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. So, for the third batch, I decided to try stuffed cookies. Placing the caramel inside each ball of dough seemed to do the trick (though there were a few that fell out of the bottom once they were cooked, so make sure that the caramel is in the center of each dough ball, and have the dough covering the caramel completely, all around. I found that setting the piece in the center and then rolling the dough around it, worked well.

Caramel Stuffed Macchiato Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you love caramel macchiatos, you will absolutely love the cookie version! We took chocolate chip and espresso cookies and stuffed them with caramel.
Course: Dessert
Keyword: cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch sugar cookie mix
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 3 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1 bag chocolate chips semi-sweet or dark
  • 14 oz bag caramels

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • In a mixing bowl, add hot water and espresso powder. Powder should dissolve right away.
  • Add cookie mix, flour, vanilla, egg and butter and mix until combined.
  • Add chocolate chips and hand stir until well distributed.
  • Unwrap caramels and cut them in half.
  • Shape dough into 1in balls with one or two pieces of caramel in the center of each dough ball.
  • Place dough balls into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes and let cool for 2 minutes. Transfer to cooling racks and allow to fully cool.

My kids were honestly unsure about how they were going to feel about these cookies. I think the word “espresso” freaked them out a bit. They were sure they were going to taste like coffee (a flavor that they aren’t quite into at their ages, though I was sneaking sips of my Nana’s iced coffee since I was much younger than them).

Although they were messy, they really loved the first two batches. Truth is, the espresso flavor isn’t as strong as you might think (though you can make it stronger by adding more espresso powder).

The stuffed caramel batch was their absolute favorite. They went back for seconds and even thirds. They were pretty much gone within an hour so they’ve already requested that I make one more batch this weekend. How can I say no to that request? Plus, Super Dad is really looking forward to dunking one into his weekend caramel macchiato! YUM!

If you plan on making these or any of our other recipes, I’d love to hear how they turned out. If you have any other suggestions for how to incorporate the caramel, share it! I’m all for trying new options that I missed!

If you love caramel macchiatos, you will absolutely love these! We took chocolate chip espresso cookies and stuffed them with caramel.
