Chocolate Mint Healthish Cookies

I was trying to think and think what I could possibly do to make a healthier chocolate snack for my 3 children. I thought about making cheese cracker...........but I am out of cheese. So using what I had around the house I made what my children say are an amazing chocolate "cookie." Now the ingrediants are fairly common in my house and not a lot is required.
  • 2 Cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 Cup Nutella 
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • 2 Tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of salt.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract
Like with all my recipes this one is really easy :O) simply throw everything in your food processor and mix till it forms a ball. TADA! Then I rolled out the dough to about 1/4 of an inch next time I think I will go a bit thinner to make it more of a cracker. I happen to have  a shark cookie cutter on hand so I used that because it looked so fun. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes they do puff up a bit towards the end of cooking.
My children thought they would be best served on a wave of peppermint icing which I found on sale at Walmart :O)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.
