How Does She help her kids feel
on their first day of school?
Many of my friends and I have adopted Emily’s
tradition from when she was a little girl so I thought I needed to tell all of you about it as well. We’ll get to that. First I have to properly introduce Emily. You vaguely know her from the rainbow polka dot party and angel wings posts. She has flown under the radar for long enough, it is time you meet her and then enjoy her fun personality as she teaches us
3 FUN first Day of School Traditions.
Five Fun Facts:
1. I like to talk, a lot, except when I’m supposed to, then I’m way nervous!
2. I’m a Canadian living in America, and my Mom’s an American living in Canada.
3. I always make the person that I’m talking on the phone to say goodbye first. I don’t really know why, I just refuse to do it.
4. I love to read good books.
5. And now for the most important thing you need to know about me, the older I get, I like peanut butter less, and dark chocolate more!
Super Hero Power wanted:
If I could have any super power I would want the ability to always know the right answer. Then I would never have to second guess myself… and I’d always be right, which really does sound like a LOT OF FUN DOESN’T IT?
The Big Giant Cookie!
This cookie recipe is the best one I have!
Mostly because it is really delicious, but also because of the story attached to it. We call them “Creepy roomate cookies” because my husband (boyfriend then) had this roomate who made them almost every day to lure young ladies into his trap! He wouldn’t let any of the boys have any, but whenever I came over he would force the cookies on me. I shouldn’t really say force. It shames me to admit it, but they were so good that I was nice to my “almost husband’s” strange, personal space invading, over cologned, creepy roomate just so I could eat them! So yada, yada, yada… he gave me the recipe as a wedding gift, and I was actually excited! So enough with the hype, here is the recipe to my husband’s
Creepy Roommate cookies
2 sticks butter
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
Mix, then add-
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp water
(I don’t know why a tsp of water would make a difference, but creepy roomate did it, so I don’t mess with it!)
Mix, then add-
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
½ bag chocolate chips
(or 3/4 of the bag, or the whole thing. You know you want to!)
-Dough will be very sticky!-
plop onto pizza pan
Spread out evenly onto a round pizza pan
Bake at 350 for ten minutes and check every two to three minutes after, until golden brown.
Trick for writing on the cookie:
put frosting and food coloring in a plastic bag and smoosh til blended, then snip off the corner
