What I Purchased For Our Small Patio

Happy summer everyone!  Just a few weeks ago my husband cleaned up our patio space and now all it needs is some decorating love.  That's where I come in!   This post contains affiliate links For our DIY bluestone patio, my plan is to maximize the 10'x10' space by setting up two different zones.  One for dining and one for lounging.  Our Patio I purchased a black and white patio sofa about four years ago so I thought I would make it simple and use these colors as my inspiration for the design. For me, these timeless colors add elegance and make a space look crisp and neat without much effort.    Here is what I purchased for our small patio BISTRO TABLE SET This bistro table set is elegant, simple and the perfect size for just the two of us and our small patio. If you love this set as much as I do you can find it at my Amazon shop under  Home Favorites .  It comes in 8 different colors if you're not so keen on the black set.

Easy Jammy Sugar Cookies

Hi friends!  We are less than a week away from Christmas day and I am in baking mode!  One of my favorite Christmas traditions is baking cookies!  The scent of cookies baking in the oven always makes it feel like Christmas in our home.  One of the first cookies on my list to bake are these easy jam-filled sugar cookies.  This recipe includes ingredients that most of us already have on hand and is quick and easy to make.

Directions:

Unwrap refrigerated cookie dough and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes. While the cookie dough is sitting, chop the nuts into small to fine pieces, or if you have a coffee grinder use that and save yourself some time.

Slice the cookie dough and roll into 1/2 in. balls. You can use less dough if you want smaller cookies.

Then roll the balls into finely chopped walnuts or pecans and place them on a large cookie sheet, two inches apart.  With the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a deep indentation in each ball.  You can also use a clean wine cork or your thumb.

Fill the indentations with the jam and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes.  Let the cookies cool before removing them from the cookie sheet.

The cookies have crispy edges and are soft and gooey in the middle, they make a delicious treat with your morning or afternoon coffee.
