Mint Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know, I know this blog is suppose to be going healthier.lol Well everyone needs to cheat every now and then and this is how I like to cheat :OP well that and cupcakes but when the late night munchies hit I don't always have the stuff for those. These are basically a knock off of Nestle Toll house Recipe that is on the bag with a few changes for the better!

  • 1 &1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup Nestle Toll house dark chocolate and mint chips(to die for)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla


Start by mixing together the egg, butter, and sugars. Once those are well mixed add everything else :O) yes I am by far the laziest baker ever! However I usually do mix my chocolate chips in by hand because the beaters tend to break them up.lol Spoon heaping teaspoons full onto a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake at 350 till golden brown. Mmmm....these are so good. 
Sorry about the poor picture I only have one light in a 700 square foot kitchen so when it is dark out the lighting is poor.lol

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

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 :)

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 like to dust mine …
