1/2 cup peanut butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 tablespoons water

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups white chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl mix the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth.

5. Combine the flour, baking soda and the salt in a separate bowl.

6. Slowly stir in the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture. It is easier if you do a little bit of flour at a time in order to incorporate it better into the wet mixture.

7. Stir in white chocolate chips.

8. Drop spoonfuls (or small ice cream scoops) onto an ungreased baking sheet.

9. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until the edges are golden. This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies.

10. After you pull the baking sheet out of the oven allow the cookies to cool for 1 minute on the sheet before removing to wire racks to cool. You can also use newspapers but because I don’t have either, I put them on paper towels and they seem to cool just fine.

Gingerbread & Korean Food Time!

2013-01-13_16-49-13_685
Olivo, Mark and I were watching the “Maltese Falcon” yesterday because I had to watch it for my film class.

We’re going over the hard-boiled detective films and this was the first on our list of many!

And although it was quite fast paced and hard to differentiate characters at times, overall it was a good movie.

And a must see for Humphrey Bogart fans.

After the movie I just kind of wanted to bake something. And Olivo was getting pretty sleepy so I wanted to help her stay awake so she helped me bake some delicious Gingerbread cookies!

They actually turned out pretty good! It was hard to cut out the shapes without destroying them because of all that butter in the batter but I put some more flour down before I rolled out the dough so that helped a lot.

And for dinner I made Sausage Omurice for me and Chicken Quesadillas for Mark.

We don’t really want the same food for dinner, which is fine by me.

It’s good because I’m getting better at multitasking in the kitchen.

I just need to get more pots and pans and stuff when I get the chance. Well…I need more baking ware rather than for cooking but we’ll see I guess.

A mini polaroid of Olivo and I. (Excuse the basket of laundry).

I don’t know…this picture kind of makes me look short. Hmmm… Oh well.

And today after we got back from our trip to Target we decided to go get some Korean food.

Ever since I had Korean food the other day I’ve been craving it like crazy. Thank God Olivo likes Korean food! I was stoked!

She got barbecue chicken and I got Kimchi chigae! Yum!!!!

Made it home in time to watch MOST of the Bachelor but it is SO BORING!

Everyone is ugly and stupid and Sean is boring as FUCK! UGH. Bleh.

Just a picture of my two favorite furry buddies

 

So school started yesterday and it’s okay so far. I have 6 classes this semester so I have to make sure I stay on top of my shit, if you know what I mean. I have 3 English classes, 1 Art History class, 1 Anthropology class and 1 Philosophy class which is more like a math class because we’re learning deductive logic. I was really worried about this class but I soon realized it was just like my LSAT prep courses so I’m not TOO worried anymore. Yay!

I’ve been trying to bake more to keep my mind off of stress and it’s been helping quite a bit. I’m sure writing more on my blog will relieve more of my stress so I have to make sure to keep on that as well.

And most of all, I need to make sure I stay motivated throughout the whole semester. If I have to come up with incentives and rewards to keep myself going then that is just what I am going to do!

OH! And I’m going to start crafting again too! Hoorah! I ordered some supplies in the mail so I should be started on some projects very shortly.

But anyways, pictures like the one above really help me get through the day. I’m really glad my mother has been sending them to me. I have the most awesome cat in the world and Lala is pretty cute as well. I’ll call my mother and she’ll put the phone down so I can talk to Lala for a bit too. (Not like she understands but she turns her neck every which way to look for me). I miss my babies! AH!
