No Bake Cookies!

I’m always happy to find a simple yet delicious cookie recipe. This one quite possibly tops them all for me, it was really good! If you like chocolate and peanutbutter then I would give this one a try..(I found the recipe here)

Chocolate, Oatmeal and Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • Waxed paper


In a heavy saucepan mix the sugar, cocoa, butter, salt and milk over medium heat until combined. Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and quickly add peanut butter stir until just combined, then stir in vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls (I use a cookie scoop). Cookies will harden when cool.


Yummy homemade Hummus

I have been meaning to make hummus for Mya to try for quite sometime now, and I finally did it! Its very simple and tasty.

Here is the recipe I followed (although I did add a little more garlic than the recipe called for):

2 cans chickpeas
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 cup tahini
2 cloves of garlic, chopped ( I used 3-4 cloves)
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/4 tsp coarse salt
1/4 cup of liquid reserve from chickpeas

Reserve liquid, rinse, drain and rinse chickpeas. Place chickpeas and reserve liquid in food processor. Add lemon juice, olive oil, tahini (well stirred), chopped garlic, cayenne pepper and salt. Blend until smooth. Store in fridge in an airtight container for 7 days. Enjoy!

The taste test….
