Chipits Mini Kisses


1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Cream together margarine, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.

3. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla.

4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt.

5. Gradually blend into creamed mixture.

Waiting for Spring

The snow is finally starting to melt! There's still a lot more to melt but at least it's melting. I can't wait for spring. It means no more heavy winter coats and winter boots. And the best part is that I can actually start taking pictures again! Winter really does reduce the amount of pictures I take. So a few days ago I took some pictures of flowers I have. Here they are!



Which is your favourite?
