Very Merry Lettuce

What a blessing it is to eat your own food, from your own garden!!! It tastes so fresh!!! And it is a very good time to grow lettuce because it is nice and cold out!!

Mini Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies

There is nothing like the feeling of baking on a rainy day in October. =] Dad and Adam requested me to make them some cookies. So I made them some Mini Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies. ( whew!! what a long name!!) They are really easy

Mini Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies


1/2 cup of unsalted butter
1 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of lightly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup of finely chopped pecans, toasted
Melted caramal, for drizzling


Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook for 3-4 minutes, stiring frequently, until butter browns and starts to foam. Remove from heat to cool. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together melted flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together melted browned butter, brown sugar, and granulated suger until creamy -- about 1-2 minutes. Beat in egg in vanilla until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually beat in flour until just combined; stir in chocolate chips and pecans until combined. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with a cooking spray. Roll dough into balls (about 2 teaspoons per ball), place on cookie sheets, and flatten using the palms of your hands. Bake 8 minuets ot until set and light golden. Cool on wire racks. Drizzle with melted caramel.

Hurray for Owls!!!!

I had just finished my school work for the day, when I felt like I had to check my email, as I logged on, I saw an email that said I got a message on my Etsy shop. So I went to my Etsy and I saw that a lady wanted to buy some owls. Not just one, but 20!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I was so excited I started running around the house yelling and shouting that I sold my owls!! Yipppieeee!! My hooties are going world wide!!!!!!!
