About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

That Little Cookie Recipe as Promised

Okay, okay ... as promised, here is the recipe for those little yummy square biscuits "little bear" and I made last week. Seriously!! It is the easiest recipe and always makes a good amount on cookies. 
Jan’s Glitzy Glam, Super-Easy Shortbread
250g softened butter or baking margarine (they say butter always tastes better, but I always use the baking margarine)
1 cup caster sugar
3 cups flour
Pinch of salt
 Mix butter and caster sugar
 Add flour and salt (can add choc chips too)
 Press into lined baking tin
 Prick with a fork (to give it that short bread look)
 Sprinkle with extra caster sugar and edible glitter (just because we love bling and we can!)
 Bake at 180 deg C for 17 minutes

As soon as the are out the oven I cut them into squares. Enjoy with a cup of tea (or make me jealous and have a Starbucks for me) and know that I am sending you a hug!

Much love,
Janine xxx
