About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Molasses Cookies

   Last night was cool, rainy and relaxing.  Such a nice break from the heat.  We opened the windows and enjoyed the sounds of the storm during dinner.  The thunder roared, the rain pounded and we all decompressed and prepared for the upcoming weekend.  Later in the evening, Katie and I decided to make cookies.  We got the recipe from Michele at michelestreasures.blogspot.com.  They are spicy and delicious- crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.   
Treat yourself and enjoy!

Molasses Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup molasses
1  egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/3 sugar to roll dough in

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix together brown sugar, oil, molasses and egg.  Combine flour , baking soda, salt, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger then stir into the molasses mixture.  Roll dough into balls then roll in white sugar.  Bake for 8 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.  Enjoy!:-)
