Yummy in my tummy

Before I head into this post, I just want to let you know that I switched back to the button that Rosi made for me, I just like them more than the ones I made. I am so bad at making up my mind. :P

Here is a recipe my mom ran across the other day, and in all truth and honesty these are the best cookies I have ever had! No kidding! :D

Now before you freak out about the amount of ingredients, let me just tell you that we normally half or even quarter this recipe. But I can tell you they are ddddd-licious!

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe 


    • 2 cups butter
    • 4 cups flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 5 cups blended oatmeal
    • 24 ounces chocolate chips
    • 2 cups packed brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 (8 ounce) Hershey Bars (grated) (this ingredient is optional, we normally put butterscotch chips in instead)
    • 4 large eggs
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)


1. Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder.

Shabbat Shalom!! We will be enjoying our rest day with friends tomorrow, what will you be doing?


Weekend project

This weekend I was busy making my bedroom a little less, what's the word?? Plain. Yes, I think that word explains it very well... Anyways, I had a bunch of cards from friends and family laying around collecting dust. So, I thought, why not put them on my door? But here's a tip for you: use sticky tack instead of tape. It won't ruin the surface, which is great! :) And I thought I'd show you the finished product as well...

Well, the almost finished project... There is still a little bit at the bottom of the door that I didn't have enough cards for... But, I will eventually!! :D So, what do you think?




What do you think? Please let me know, I would love to hear your feedback!! Have a wonderful weekend (or what's left of it anyways...) :D



I just wanted to let everyone know that I didn't fall off the face of the earth... :) I know that I haven't posted anything for a while, but I have been so busy around here, it's getting a little chaotic. So, I just want to run you through some changes that I will be making to this blog...

At the beginning of Feb. I started making a new blog, called Seasons of My Heart, but now I have decided that I will just keep this one and make a bunch of changes to it... Such as, new design, new buttons, new everything! I want to start fresh. (By the way Rosi, please don't think that I don't like the buttons you made for me, because I do, and think they are gorgeous!!) :D In a nut shell, I feel bored with this blog, so I want to really make some changes to it. :)

I also want to let you know that Miss Rachel from Peculiar Treasures has gotten her magazine Tehila up and running! :D She has done a marvelous job with everything! And I encourage you to follow her website... :)

And HAPPY PURIM!! If you would like to read my article about purim (it's on Tehila) just click here.

So, without further ado, I would like to wish you and your family a blessed Sabbath and get started with my new blog stuff. See ya soon! :)


Whadda ya think?

Here is a video that I made the other day... The song is called Broken Things by Sue Samuel. Please tell me how you like it, I'm planning on making another one soon!! :) Have a great day!
