#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
Chocolate Chips
  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!)

Cookies and Misto


I love me some home baked chocolate chip cookies!  The only problem? I (always end up eat 10 in a row) can never just have one!

Side note: I often get in a rut of drinking the old favourite at Starbucks aka I’ll obsess over the same drink for a few months before changing it up.  Decided to try something new today…. Tall Non Fat Hazelnut Cafe Misto.   Mat Leave Mommies love their drive thru starbies!
