outrageous cookie time

Last week, on this post, I was intrigued by the sound of Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies.  So I printed out the recipe, added a couple of ingredients to the shopping list, and on a rainy Saturday afternoon Phoebe and I baked.

We muddled our way through the American recipe, and baked some pretty good cookies.  We used crunchy peanut butter, which did give them a nutty texture, and half a bar of milk chocolate instead of chocolate drops.

I had mine with a glass of milk - American style. 

What have you tried out for the first time lately?

Busy, busy, busy

I know, it's been a while. What can I say? Things have been a-changing around here. The biggest, for me, is that I'm now working full time - which is really eating into my crafting time.  Added to that, my half-marathon training is eating up even more time.  And when the creating goes on the back burner, the blogging follows.  And as for scrapbooking? That now seems to have been relegated to the monthly crop at Bromsgrove.

But, you know what? If I take a moment and think about it, there's still a lot of creative craftiness going on around here.  So, that's what I'll try to bring to my pigeon hole.

Shall I promise to speak soon? I think it's better if I just say, hope to see you soon...

See you soon...
