A good weekend and a cookie recipe!

Even with 2 trips to the Lodi Grape Festival and painting a bedroom, I was able to notch out some time to try a new cookie recipe and make some crafts this weekend!!!
Cookie making, creating, painting, live music by Edgar Winter, and a great Beatles Tribute band called the Fab Four at the Lodi Grape Festival! What a great weekend!

I really like Monica's Lick the Bowl Good blog. I have tried several of her recipes and have had success with each one! I am looking forward to making her 3 packet pot roast one day this week.

What I tried this weekend was her No Bake Cookies. As you can see in the photo below, not many ingredients required. As the recipe claims there is no baking, just a little boiling on the stove. That wasn't too difficult, no candy thermometer required. These were pretty easy and they are very good! A mix of cookie and candy all in one!!!

Here are the yummy nutty chocolaty goodies cooling off.
Here they are cooled and ready for a co-workers birthday tomorrow. I packaged them in 4" X 6" bags. Hemp cord and a Stampin' Up Birthday Stamp cut out with a scalloped oval punch finish these off nicely.
Halloween crafts coming up.......


  1. My favorite -- my aunt in Pensacola use to make these and when I would go visit for the summer, all I had to do was go to the freezer in the garage and grab one (or more) for a yummy treat! I am no finding time for much of anything right now -- work at school and home is keeping me extra busy. Hope all is well. Take care. Tammy :)

  2. I love the way you packaged them up- they look so cute in the bag with the scalloped tag. I'm sure your co-worker will appreciate them.

    Thanks for the compliments and for linking back to my blog. I hope you like the pot roast too!

  3. Wow! Crafting and cooking, painting and socializing ~ sounds like a VERY busy week-end. Your treats turned out sooOOOO cute Tina and I'm so happy to see you incorporated Stampin' UP! into your day. Bet that Birthday person was happy today?? Big hugs, Julia
