okay i'm back.

took yesterday off...too much to do.
plus i had a mini break down in the a.m.
which told me i needed some down time.

it starts today.
i am doing nada.
well, mostly nothing.
basically i am doing only the things
i want to do. ha!!

i'm happy to report the cake was yum.
a little dry in my opinion, but it got a lot
of compliments.

i have another recipe share today...
i know i should pace myself, but i am so
happy these suckers are so easy and so YUM.
they are so easy, in fact, that if you
were to, i don't know...
drop the whole first batch INTO the
oven when you already cleaned up a huge coffee
maker disaster which set you back about fifteen
precious minutes- & they are precious because you barely had
time to throw these together in the first place...
you would still have time to break down, slobber
and cry on your hubby's shoulder, 
clean up the mess and start all over again.
you'd also still have time to shower (!!)
and get out the door with plenty of time to spare.
comprende? :P

easy peasy peanut butter cups
1 stick of butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 C flour
cream together first 5 ingredients
in a separate bowl, mix together last 3 ingredients
now combine the flour mixture into the butter mixture
little by little until blended.
roll into 1" balls, place in pam-sprayed mini muffin tin
bake at 350 F for 8-10 mins
as soon as they come out of the oven, place a 
reese's mini cup or hershey's kiss in each, let cool.
remove carefully and enjoy!!

i have a nutty about once a week. does the body good

you know, another easy one is to take break and bake choc chip cookies and put them in a mini cupcake tin, bake and when they come out of the oven, pop a pb cup in them. OMG...seriously good

like, make double because you'll eat the first batch right away

hey, and did you hear about the starbucks love? some bucks did the pay it forward thing for like an hour in the drive thru! i thought of you!!
