Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookies

These are beyond a shadow of a doubt the BEST peanut butter cookies I’ve ever had!

Peanut Butter Choc Chip CookiesI cannot take credit for finding this recipe, it was all my kids.  It all started with this:

Little Chef came home to find this on her bedroom door.

My boys are smart, when they want cookies they know who to ask.  The next thing I know, Little Chef is asking if I will show her how to look up cookies on Pinterest.  She wanted to  find a “new” recipe.  I did, and just like her mama, Pinterest sucked her in and she was there forever looking through thousands of pins of delicious looking cookies.  I think her brother became worried that cookies were never going to become a reality.  I heard him say something about peanut butter and chocolate chips and bless her cookie lovin’ heart she searched for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and decided on this recipe.

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookiesA little while later I walked through the kitchen and stole a chunk of warm cookie (it was a broken piece and NEEDED to be eaten)……as the sweet, buttery, chocolaty, warm, piece of cookie melted in my mouth.  The clouds parted,  the sun shone through, the angels sang and my taste buds rejoiced.  I think I said something like “Holy cow, those are stinking amazing,  I’m NEVER going to be able to stay away from these cookies.”  I really didn’t need to worry about that though, they were completely devoured shortly after that by other members of our household.

Here’s the recipe so you can hear the angels too!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl beat together the butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugars and mix well then add the eggs and mix well again. Next add the milk and vanilla stir well. Measure all the dry ingredients into a separate bowl and then add to the peanut butter mixture. Stir just a bit and then add chocolate chips and stir until everything is combined. Let the cookie dough sit for a few minutes to firm up. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop 1 or 2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet a couple inches apart and bake for about 10 minutes. They will look a little under done. If you leave them on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes they will be much easier to remove to a cooling rack.

Tip: These are amazing cookies anytime but if you want to see the clouds part and hear the angels sing you have to try them when they are still warm. 🙂  The only small draw back to these cookies is that they are pretty delicate, I would not recommend these for baking and shipping in the mail…..they would be awfully tasty crumbs though!

Fish Tacos With Cabbage Slaw And Homemade Tartar Sauce

Fish Tacos 3

Fish Tacos 3This is a great spring and summer dish, I love the light, fresh cabbage slaw.  It goes great on any taco, burrito, etc. or it tastes just amazing all by its little self. 😀

Start off by making this easy homemade tartar sauce and set aside.

Homemade Tartar SauceNext chop up the cabbage, tomatoes, green onions, and fresh cilantro.  I didn’t have green onions so I used a white onion, it was good but green onions are better. 🙂

Fish Tacos With Cabbage SlawAdd lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and stir.

Cabbage SlawTake a little taste and add salt and/or pepper if needed.

Now cook up the fish of your choice.  I salt and pepper tilapia fillets and cook them on medium heat in a little olive oil for about 4 minutes on each side.

TilapiaPlace a half of a cooked tilapia fillet on a warm soft taco shell (flour or corn).  Place half a cup or so of the cabbage slaw on the fish and top it off with the tartar sauce!

Fish TacosSo delicious, so fresh tasting, and so easy. The fresh cilantro makes my heart sing!!

April 2014 – A Month Of Photos From The Red Double Wide

Bantam Chick (Chocolate)

April was incredibly busy, but full of amazing cuteness. 😀

We started off the month with our spring break.  I figured it was a good time to bring home our first batch of chicks for this year.  The girls want to take bantams to the fair in August so they picked out four bantam chicks at the feed store.

PeepThis batch of chicks brought with them a lot of firsts for us.  Our first bantams, our first brooder in the house, and our first time using a EcoGlow Brooder instead of a heat lamp.  This was also our first time picking chicks that we didn’t know the sex or the breed.  The only thing we were sure of was that they were CUTE!

Bantam Chick (Chocolate)I will miss the day when my youngest kiddo outgrows bringing me dandelion bouquets. 🙂

DandelionWe bought 10 blueberry bushes. We weren’t ready for them, but they were too cheap to pass up. (I LOVE blueberries!)

Blueberry Bushes
Yes, he’s bringing me a tire. He packs it around when he can’t find a ball.

JoWe enjoyed some great weather during April.

Spring with a photo bomberOur old mower was unable to be revived this spring so Digger and Jade brought home a new one. (well, new to us)  It was great to find something local that we needed just in time that’s in great shape for a fair price!  Little Chef was super excited to get a new mower; she does lots of the mowing.

Last years green onions starting to bloom.  I thought they were beautiful.

OnionsWe got the garden cleaned up which was no easy task considering we neglected it last fall and then digger tilled it, pretty or not.  🙂

Tilling the gardenWe had a wonderful Easter celebrating our Lords resurrection with family, friends and great food!

Easter EggsThe girls and I got to take a trip to Newport, Oregon with my mom and a few of my siblings.  This was the view from our beach house!

Newport, ORWe visited the aquarium and the science center while we where there too.  What fun places!  This was perfect for Jo as she’s doing a report at school on Orcas.  🙂

Jo  OrcaLittle Chef LOVED the music room at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

Little Chef in the music roomJo’s cat Boots had four kittens in mid April. This one has been named Sky.  Jo has been in kitty heaven!!

SkyThe super cute chicks at the beginning of this post grew quite a bit over the month and aren’t as cute any more.  They have graduated from being in the house and have been moved to the shop.  This is a picture of their first trip outside.  They now spend a few hours outside in the little pen each day.

bantam chicksHappy May Day Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by!
