The Big Switcheroo

The time has finally come....
I'm entering the unfamiliar and unknown world of Wordpress. Hopefully, this site will be easy to maneuver around for you...
and me.
Ok, confession time:
I'm really a lil concerned
Blame me? I mean....Good grief!!!!!! It's not that long ago that I actually learned how to post a picture on blogger.
My website is still under construction so you might be seeing some funky happenings, but I'll get it straight...sooner or later! I'll figure it out, so bare with me as I venture into my new wordpress world...

Chocolate Chip Yum Yums!

PBC came home the other day with a very tattered torn piece of paper.
"Momma, this is a cookie recipe and we need to make these cookies for home economic, it's for a grade."
"Ok, sure, these look like Neiman Marcus cookies because they have the oatmeal and Hershey bar.
 "No they are Mrs. Fields and we have to follow the directions exactly!!!!"
"Sure. No problemo. Where's the directions?"
Da panic sets in.
"Uh oh....I told STAL to slow down on that golf cart ride home!!!!!!!! I thought I saw some papers flying outta my book bag!!!!!"
 "So we improvised.  I looked up Mrs. Fields cookies but never did see a recipe that matched this one and then I looked up Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies and the same this is the directions for Hershey chocolate chip cookies and the ingredients for maybe Mrs. Fields cookies.
Who knows.
Who cares.
Dern things are good :)
Let's just call them:
