i made *these* today.

wow. so sickness has struck. but it has been short lived i hope. a little girl from our church was throwing up on sat. night...and our kids had been with her on fri. night.  i told matt last night that it will be a miracle if our kids dont' get sick...and literally 5 minutes later, kaden was standing before my eyes, and barfed all over the place. ugh.

calli then decided to follow suit over night. but all are well today. thank you Lord! i did a lot of praying last night. a.lot. hopefully we are free and clear. kaden did hang out at home today, but i think he would have been okay to go...anyway...

i made 2 different kinds of cookies today... both recipes were found on blogs i stumbled upon. and these were so good, i thought i would share. they are good!



1/2 cup butter at room temperature

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/4 cup flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Nutella for stuffing

White sugar for rolling

Cream together butter and peanut butter. Add both sugars and beat together until fluffy. Add in egg, milk, vanilla and mix until smooth. Sift together flour, baking powder and soda, then add slowly to wet ingredients. Mix until combined.

Place in fridge for thirty minutes.

When dough is chilled, using a cookie scoop, roll each ball of dough in white sugar before placing on a cookie sheet.
Press your thumb into each cookie making space for the Nutella.

A big  spoonful of Nutella.

Space the cookies out pretty far as well.
Next, take an additional sugar rolled, cookie scooped ball of dough, flatten it out slightly between your hands, then press it on top of the Nutella mountain. Smash down the lot of them.

Bake at 350º for 11-14 minutes. (My oven runs an exact 13 minutes.)

They won't look totally done. Take them out anyway. Trust me on this one. You want them to be soft and chewy. Let them chill out on the cookie sheet for five minutes before carefully transferring them to a wire cooling rack.

Makes 18 big, beautiful, magical, willpower destroying, cookies.

thanks to Joys Hope for sharing the recipe...fabulous. ~mk.


the others are kind of like molasses cookies, and then i melted white chocolate chips, and made a heart on the top of each cookie. they were *cute*. 


my mom came and folded some more laundry. thank you  mom. and she didn't even take any cookies. :(     

i am still not feeling so good, and read that an extremely rare condition can happen when taking the medicine i was on. i am that extremely rare condition person, i guess. i am still waiting to hear back from the doctor...i hope there is somethign they can do for me. :)


i got half of my first floor that i mean, dusted, windows washed, vacumed, and organized. yay me. matt was supposed to have a realtor meeting in our office...and then when he came in, he told me it had been moved to his quarryville office. i guess he tells me things like that so i really get things done...mean, i know. :) but now it's clean, that's for sure. :)

happy monday. ~mk.
