Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies: Guest Posting at Mom’s Crazy Cooking

Hi folks. So today I have a special treat for you. I am guesting over at Mom’s Crazy Cooking today. I made these wonderful Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies. I also did the mix in a jar and explain how to do them as gifts for loved ones. Now when Tina expressed interest in guest bloggers I have to say I jumped at the chance. I participate in her Crazy Cooking Challenge and am impressed with the friendly atmosphere over there during the hop. So I have become a fan of Tina’s. I hope you will as well. So if you want to learn more about these little beauties head on over to Mom’s Crazy Cooking and check them out. I hope you will love them as much as we did. I had to make a batch to “test” of course. And I stacked them for pictures just in case any dropped and were “too damaged for other people to eat” so I could chow down happily while snapping pictures. Yup, I am an evil genius folks. Motivated by sugar, lots and lots of sugar!!!

Also be sure to check out my gazillion other posts I have on the go right now. Apparently I’ve come back from being sick with much gusto. So the over zealous ocd tendencies have given you lots of reading material. Feel free to browse around and check things out.

And always remember when the screen starts doing this and going cockeyed you really need to take a break and go grab a cookie or something. All this blog/pinterest/stumble/facebook/twitter is bad for your eyes. Go sit in the tub with an eye mask, then come back and read more of my blog. Cuz mine has been proven to cause less eye strain than everyone else’s. True story…seriously….it’s a known fact.

    Hi Kim!

    Hope you are well.

    I have made these potatoes for years and years, always made with butter, just because I love the taste of butter.

    We always put a thin slice of onion between the splits, sometimes add bacon, usually smoked maple. (If the bacon is on the fatty side, you won't need the butter.

    Cheese is a great addition also, don't be shy experimenting with a cheese you have never used.

    Herbs and spices.

    You get the drift…..whatever comes into your mind can be added.

    We always liked to wrap in tin foil and put them on the bbq.

    Now saying all that I'll give them a try with the olive oil.
