Flashback of the SNES!

Ever had the Mario Paint? Remember the Music Composer with the Meowing Cats and Barking dogs? I used to have that program that had a mouse and you could make animations. It was fun and silly.

Funky Town in Paint Composer by geoffnet1 on youtube! You should see his version of Thriller too.

Been a while since I've posted a recipe on here, so here goes. This is a recipe found on the bag of Guittard Real Milk Chocolate Chips. These suckers are big with being between the size of a Hershey's Kiss and a regular sized chocolate chip. You could just eat them as is.

These cookies have a shortbread base and are very sandy in texture. They don't spread much and can be delicate. I think I made them a little bigger than the recipe reads. I also didn't sprinkle them with powdered sugar.

Shortbread Rounds (recipe on the bag, but not on the website)

Little cookies with big milk chocolate chips that melt in your mouth.
Yield 3 1/2 dozen 1-inch round cookies.

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
1 cup (6 oz) milk chocolate chips

powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cream butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer at low to medium speed until light. Gradually add flour until combined. Stir in chips by hand. If dough seems dry or crumbly, it will stick together when shaped with your hands.

Using the palms of your hands, roll well-rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 13-15 minutes. Cookies will still be pale. Let stand 2 minutes before removing from cookie sheet and dust with powdered
sugar if desired.

OMG, where have I been? I hope everyone had a Merry X-mas, Happy Hanukkah, etc. The holidays managed to crazily drive me into madness. IT has been frakkin' cold. Like chilling down to the bones.

I have also been trying to get my son into preschool and had so many appointments in regards to it. Boo just started special education preschool for his PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder) last week on the 5th. Even though, three hours is just a small amount of time to be separated from him, it feels like more. Is it weird to miss your child for that reason? XD He is doing super-duper too and loves going to school, although he did pitch a few temper tantrums during the first couple days. The goal for Boo is transition to General Ed Kindergarten by next fall and get him talking. It's amazing how much he's changed! He's also taking the school bus and not flipping out. In fact, he's been a mellow fellow. Now, his sister wants to go to school just like her brother! They grow up so fast.

Crafty stuff I've done over the holidays!

Make kid mittens! The two needle kind, cuz I'm still kinda of noobish on dpns.

And more winter things to knit at

I made this Banana Cake for my husband's b-day on Dec. 24th.
Banana Cake VI@! IT was delicious, very moist, and not at all too sweet. Definitely a keeper!
