Gluten-Free Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are on the sweeter side due to all the powdered sugar added in, so make sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder!

Makes 15 cookies

Ingredients: –

2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder –

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar –

3 egg whites –

1 tbsp vanilla extract –

1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

*To make them Christmas Festive – melt Nestle Toll House White Chocolate Chips and drizzle over cookies – add christmas sprinkles*

Allow the cookies to set on baking mat, forming a sort of hardened “crust” for 30 minutes before baking. This is a vital step because if not done the cookies will expand too much in the oven

Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes

ENJOY . . . . . .

How To Add Luxury To The Basis . . .

I get some great ideas from Denise – recreate it – Make it my own!

I’m not here to reinvent the wheel . . . Just repurpose it! ~ Me

I like how Denise takes basic products from say the Dollar store or Walmart and turns them into Luxury! We all can do this, I challenge you to find a simple product from the Dollar General, or Walmart, or Target, or wherever you shop – take a picture of it – then, turn it into a creation of Luxurious Charm and Beauty – post the finalize product. Then, pay it forward – give it to someone that would greatly appreciate some real Beauty in their life this Holiday Season.

Enjoy . . . Her DIYs are very simple – can be done in an afternoon.

8 Ways to Prepare for Holiday House guests

preparing a guest room 7How to Prepare the Guest Room

If you will be hosting people in your home over the holidays, the first thing you want to focus on is making their bedroom as comfortable as possible. This is the space that your guests are going to make themselves at home, so it’s important to make it cozy and welcoming.

Here are a few things to help make the room inviting:

 

  • Outfit the bed with comfortable sheets, blankets, and pillows – and if possible, don’t use old, worn bedding from years gone by. Just like you enjoy quality bedding in a hotel, plan to provide that for your guests, too. You may want to invest in a set of Egyptian cotton sheets for your guest room, and provide 2 pillows per guest (I’d suggest one fiberfill and one feather-filled.) Cover the bed with a medium weight blanket or comforter, and store extra blankets in the closet for those chilly nights.

 

  • Bedside lamps are a must. If your guest is a late-night reader, providing soft lamp lighting is much nicer than one bright overhead light in the room.

 

  • Post your WiFi network name and password in the guest room. In this tech-y day and age, your guests will most definitely want to tap in to your WiFi on their phones, computers, and tablets, so make it as easy as possible for them to do so.

 

  • A welcome basket of treats, snacks, and small toiletry items is a lovely way to say “We’re So Glad You’re Here!” I save all the small toiletry items from my hotel visits and bring them home to share with my own guests.

 

  • Fresh flowers add a beautiful touch to any room. Even a single flower in a small vase adds can add a dash of freshness, and this little touch will not go unnoticed.

 

  • Provide extra hangers in the closet and ample space to hang clothing. If there’s not enough room for a suitcase, an extra chair, ottoman, or suitcase rack solves that problem.

 

  • Place a few bottles of water on the nightstand, so your guests don’t have to venture to the kitchen at night.

 

  • Add a nightlight in the hallway and near the guest bathroom to help make a middle-of-the-night restroom visit less treacherous.
