A Working Mom's Vacation

So what, might you ask, does a full time working mom do when she is off for a few weeks...bake cookies of course (that is just one of the many things I have been doing). I really want to make a cake, because I have also spent some time watching cake shows on TV, however I just don't think Chris, Ethan and I need a whole cake and I don't have the self control. Although my sister-in-law and her husband are coming into town after living in South Korea for a year so maybe I can make one for that event. Hum...I should work on that recipe now.

I made peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. I took the peanut butter cookie recipe that was my grandma mamie's and added chocolate chips. Is there a better food combination than peanut butter and chocolate? I think not.

The finished product! However I must confess...I only made 12 cookies. Years ago a couple of great roommates showed me how wonderful a spoonful of frozen cookie dough can be. So the rest of the dough is in my freezer. But they were so good and the three of us ate them while hanging out at the beach today with some friends.
