Digital Camera
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Nutella
1 Egg

Preheat oven to 350. Makes 24 cookies on ungreased baking sheet.

Combine 3 ingredients to form dough. It will be a dry and dense dough. I recommend using your hand (keep one clean, silly. You know the phone will ring.) This will go quicker with mixing it by hand IMPO.

Place one inch balls on cookie sheet and press/flatten a bit with a glass.

Bake for about 8 minutes.

There are different variations out in cyber space. Some call for adding 1/2 cup of sugar. I prefer them without. If you have a really really “bad” sweet tooth, go on and add the sugar. I do not believe they need it. Yummy!

This sounds sooooo good!

Fresh Eating

Katie:  After realizing how many artificial ingredients and how much sugar (8 grams per serving!) were in the low-fat salad dressing I’d been using, I decided to make my own dressing.  I used this recipe from Cooking Light, which was super quick to make.  I ended up with a delicious and healthier dressing that tastes great, especially with spinach.  Since it was so easy to make, I think I’ll definitely experiment with other homemade dressing in the future!

Strawberry Salad Dressing  (from Cooking Light)

  • 2 cups whole strawberries
  • 1/3 cup champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Blend everything in a blender or food processor.  It’s that simple!

How To Make a New Crocheted or Knitted Hat in Minutes!

January 11, 2012

I had a knit hat that I was tired of.  It was still as fresh looking as the day it was originally made but I never chose to wear it.  I took just a tiny bit of yarn and a couple of minutes and quickly added a touch of style ot the hat and felt like I had a brand new one.  This technique can work well for new knitters or crocheters, and also can be used to update and personalize a store bought knit hat. 

I picked up a smal skein of fancy sparkly “fur” yarn – the smallest skein they sold was more than enough.  Using a small crochet hook – size F worked for me, I simply added a single row of single crochet stitches around the edge of the hat.  That’s all.  Now the hat has a subtle yet fresh touch of style to it that made an old hat “new” to me. 

Another suggestion?  Search your pin collection.  You may just find, as I did, a costume jewelry piece that when attached to the hat will give it a fun new look! 

Try it!
