My Favorite Cookies: Alison’s Cowgirl Cookies


Who isn’t looking for an awesome cookie recipe? The only problem I had with these was trying to give them a name. They are filled with my favorites: peanut butter, chocolate chips, crispy rice cereal (Rice Krispies), and they are fabulous. We were loving them when they came out of the oven, and my daughter took some to school, and she said kids were almost fighting over them. Try them, and you will see exactly what I mean.

Easy as Can Be: Grilled Mussels with Lemon and Italian Parsley


I have never put mussels on my blog before, but since my 9-year-old, Zachary, eats them, I thought, why not? These Grilled Mussels with Lemon and Italian Parsley are so easy, prepared in under 30 minutes. If you don’t want to grill them, you can bake them in the oven at 500F for about 5 minutes or until shells open. This recipe is light and flavorful and perfect with crusty French bread and a salad (and glass of white wine for me).
