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)

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
