A little more valentines celebration

As the weather is starting to warm and get spectacular outside – I almost forgot that I had a few last #Vday pix to share.

This year I got SPOILED by the hubz when he had these flowers delivered to me (I was #WFH).  We then enjoyed our annual valentine’s dinner of fried chicken, bisquits and gravy with mash.  I was a happy laaaadddyyy :P

The weekend prior I decided to do a valentine’s breakfast for my #fambam.  Heart shaped pancakes, heart shape strawberries, whip cream and some blueberries (the hubz fav).

Banana Oat Pancakes + Coconut Cream

It was one those mornings, when we had no plans, no where to be and all the ingredients to make some fun home made pancakes!

#CookieMonster + Recipe

Despite the weather, we had a great weekend.
We took Miss for her first hair cut on Saturday which was quite pleasurable experience.  She looked like a doll during the entire process and her hair no longer resembles a mullet.  Later in the day, we met some friends and went to Fantasy Fair.  I haven’t been there since I was a kid (maybe 9-10 years old).  I remember it being a huge magical place full of midway rides and indoor play area which had THE-BEST slides and ball pit.  It was all that and more.  Just to see the sparkle in her eyes as she saw all the fun she was about to have.  Of course every ride came with a lesson in patience because we didn’t do what my parents used to do (aka one parent waits in line while the other has the kid at another attraction).
Speaking of when I was a kid, since as long as I can remember… I’ve always been a cookie monster.  But it wasn’t until recently that I thought I should start making them from scratch.  I’ve got a handle on a few recipes and wanted to share them :)

This first one is perfect for the mid-week (or mid-day) pick me up.  When it only requires 3 ingredients who’s is going to complain!
½ Cup of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of honey
1 Egg
Optional:
Chocolate Chips
Walnuts
Raisons
  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
  2. Mix 3 ingredients together in a bowl (mixture will be gooey and shiny)
  3. Place a heaping table spoon of cookie mixture on a wax paper covered cookie sheet, continue placing heaping tablespoons of the cookie mixture 2 inches apart
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before eating scoffing down a dozen LOL
Sidebar: If you want to add the optional items, do so after the 3 ingredients are mixed well! (as you can see I added chocolate chips)
Cookies taste even better the day after (I stored them in the fridge and they were soo soft!)
