Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

look pretty yummy to me--will you share the recipe? Or at least save me one, LOL.

My first attempt at binding a quilt didn't go so well. :)

The next 2 lap quilts I made I just did the inside out method, sewed around the outside then flipped it all the right way so the binding was inside then quilted it.

I'm going to attempt to bind this quilt this time :)

Since you are a fan of PB cookies, you may want to try these...
Peanut Butter Chews

Stir together to mix, then set aside:
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

In another large bowl, cream together (make sure there are no lumps):
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup butter
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

then stir in:
1 cup peanut butter (even though I prefer natural-style peanut butter, for desserts it's better to use the standard type with shortening in it. I like extra chunky Skippy)

Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Spread into TWO ungreased 9" x 13" glass pans. Bake 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool then cut into squares. Keep covered so they don't dry out (you want them to stay chewy).

You can also add chocolate chips before baking if you want to. Maybe 6 oz per batch.

Mmmm, I love peanut butter cookies. My daughter on the other hand doesn't like anything peanut butter, so I don't make them much. Actually I don't bake much of anything, because it sits around uneaten - or else somehow making my clothes shrink. These look delicious.
