Every fall I like to make these flourless monster cookie bars (but I also like to make them in every season because they are so delicious). The trick is to make sure you don’t overbake them and you’ll end up with a soft, sweet bite every time. I make mine with mini chocolate chips, peanut butter chocolate chips, and Reeses Pieces.
I have been reading two books recently that I read and liked during childhood–The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by AVI on my own and Rascal by Sterling North that Seth and I are reading with the kids. Both of these are excellent stories full of adventures of different sorts. Think ships and conspiracy for the first, raccoon orneriness for the latter.
And last but not least, I love the simplicity of the beautiful guitar and vocals and lyrics on this song that I recently re-discovered, “Explaining Jesus” by Jordy Searcy. (I love the line about a pastor at 1:12 in the video).
