Kiel’s Famous Gingerbread Cookies

December 23, 2018
Around the holidays we always have plenty of gingerbread cookies around our home. Kiel has been baking them every year since he was a child. It’s a tradition he really looks forward to. There is always a mini competition between him and his mom to see who can make the tastier gingerbread cookie. I won’t say who the winner is but I will say that the cookies never last long around here.
Today I’m sharing Kiel’s famous gingerbread cookie recipe. He likes his with a little extra holiday spice! It’s fairly easy to follow. The only tricky part is getting the icing to stay soft while decorating the cookies. We used this recipe for the Royal Icing. To make the icing easier to apply we kept putting the plastic icing bag under hot water which helped a great deal when decorating.

The New England House Tartan

December 20, 2018
This season we introduced our signature New England House Tartan Collection for Kiel James Patrick. The collection includes one of our latest products, a personalized tartan blanket. Kiel has been working on perfecting this plaid pattern for a long time and we are excited to have it as a staple in our line. Our blankets are made for road trips, picnics, cozy movie nights, and bundling up by a campfire. I’m loving the way our throw looks over our leather couch. The colors are perfectly New England.

Bennie recently teamed up with Anthropologie for a series of adorable holiday photos. If you want more Bennie in your life make sure to follow her on Instagram.  Kiel and I had so much fun putting this shoot together that I had to share the images here. My favorite duo started off their day at the Christmas tree farm and made it home just in time for milk & cookies by the fire!
