Quick cookies.

 So this was definitely not one of my favorite baking adventures.
Well, it doesn't help that I don't like very chocolatey things. And all I had was Semi-Sweet chocolate chips which are always a bad idea.

This is I creamin' up those sugars and shortening.

These are Chocolate Crunch Cookies (without the crunch)
-2 1/2 cups of purpose flour
-1 tsp. Baking soda
-1 tsp. Salt
-1 cup Shortening
-3/4 cup Sugar
-3/4 cup Brown Sugar
-2 eggs
-3/4 cup Semi-Sweet chocolate chips melted
-1/2 cup chopped pecans (Gross! Don't add.)

Add baking soda, salt, and flour together and sift. (Found out what Sift means. . .Strain them to avoid clumps!!)
Cream shortening and sugars.
Beat eggs. Then blend all together and stir in melted chocolate.

 <---- This is my dear friend Gabriel helping with the melted chocolate portion of things.
End results. A little crumbly but freshly baked they tasted quite well. After they sat a moment they weren't as good. . . I also sped the process into a 25 minute ordeal and that's with cooking two 10 min bathes.

Chicken Alfredo anyone?

 Chicken Alfredo Pasta!
Grabbed some chicken, noodles, and mushroom alfredo sauce. Chopped the chicken and cooked it in a sauce pan. Boiled up some noodles. Once they were both cooked thoroughly I combined them into a bowl and poured some sauce on.
So wonderful! And really easy. Took about thirty minutes.
This is coming from a girl who learned to boil water 7 months ago. . . I've come a LONG way with cooking. And hope to keep furthering my skills.
This is what happens when too many people start telling you you can't do something and you have to prove them wrong!
One very happy redhead!! So delicious.

Sunday homemaking adventure!

Look at me knead that dough!! And make those cute little bun sized balls.

What an adventure cooking and baking has turned out to be. Last year I barely knew how to use a stove. . . Now look at me. Homemade buns with sloppy Joes! Made the bread by myself. One life line was used. Phone a great friend, Pauline, she informed me of what letting yeast, oil, water, and honey "rest" entailed.

Here's the Sloppy Joe part. Super easy! I could handle that like it was nothin'.

Thank you Milk!

Thank you for being there when my cereal is lonely. When my cocoa needs moisture. When my cookies need dunking. When my cake needs to swim. When I can't sleep and you warmed up is the only thing to calm me. Thank you milk for always being here for me!

The above is what reads on this week's milk carton. Show a little Respect for your #1 bone and muscle building beverage. Have you thought about all milk does for you? It's a lot. And this week I have chosen to show my appreciation for it. THANK YOU MILK!! 1 1/2 gallons a week baby! :)

What's new Pussy Cat? Woahawoahwoahwoahwo.

Update.... Pretty sure this picture sums up the last few weeks. My mom's Pup Cosmo Kramer moved me back up to Logan for another great year at Utah State. Moved into Edgehill Apartments last week and started my first week back to school. Roommates are fun! Ward is awesome! Classes are long. Hill up to campus is torture. What more could I ask for? Sounds wonderful right? Honestly it is!! Always having fun and messing around. Labor Day weekend now.... Let's go PARTY! Have fun!!

San Diego Temple with a Celeb.?

So.... Today I went to the <-- San Diego Temple. While I went in there was a gentleman about my age standing next to me. We had a small conversation then sat down and waited to be briefed. As we sat there I turned to him looked at him for a moment and then asked, "Have you ever been told you look like David Archuleta?" He blushed a little and nodded with a soft "Yeaahh" coming from his mouth. We went and changed clothes and then as we were waiting for the temple workers to be ready a guy was asking where we were all from. And ya know one gal was from Ukraine, another guy was from San Diego then the rest of us from Utah. Him being from Murray. I didn't even think twice about it. Then we were in the confirmation room and we were all asked our names...... To finally answer the question that has been going through your head. YES! I was at the temple with David Archuleta today. :) Freak I wouldn't of even known who he was if it wasn't for some people in high school or my roommate last year Becca Feller. Pretty neat though I guess.

If you see it's shaped like a Hot Air Balloon. Cool huh? And there's already a little bit of money in it. YAY! I want to go on the Park City Hot Air Balloon Ride. It'll be so wonderful. My tips from work from this summer are going into my cool little jar. I'm pretty stoked about it.

Also, if you would like to join in on the excitement let me know! You can have 6 people on each balloon. It'll be just AMAZING! And very beautiful!!
