new blog address:

September 23rd is the first day of Fall! I love Fall!

I love making anything with pumpkin in it.
I love Halloween.
I love decorating my house.
I love the crisp air.
I love the changing colors.

Speaking of changing colors....I've decided to give this blog a little face lift. It was just too boring. I'm no graphic designer and who knows, it will probably change again. But, at least its at a new address that's easier to remember. From now on, you can read all the festive updates here:

Let me know what you think of the new design.

Cookie Contest Recipe #1

I made one of the cookie recipes over the weekend. The dough was amazing! And the cookies were really good too. I just wish I knew why my cookies turn out flat. Maybe its the oven?

My husband rated them a 7 1/2-8.

Hosting Tip #4

If you know kids will be coming over, make sure you have some things they can stay entertained with. A basket with puzzles, stuffed animals, coloring books, etc is a place to start.

A in?

So with all this back-2-school festiveness in the air, I've decided to hold a little contest.

I loved coming home from school to an afternoon snack of homemade chocolate chip cookies.
Its a good thing I don't have kids yet because I have yet to perfect any chocolate chip cookies that could be suitable for an after-school snack.

That is where you come in.

I am in search of the best, no- fail (because I'm good at failing) chocolate chip cookie recipe.

It's come down to this. I will make every recipe I receive. I'll post pics and let you know how they turn out. And then I'll choose the winner. The winner will be determined by how good the cookie turns out. My husband will even be the judge so it won't be biased.

To enter:
1. Email your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (and detailed instructions) to
2. Entries will be accepted until September 16th.

Depending on how many recipes I get, I'll make them over a period of time (wouldn't want to get fat now), but I'll keep you updated on the process.

I'll post the winner on this blog and the winner will receive a SUPER AWESOME PRIZE. I have yet to determine what it will be. And while this may deter you from entering, let me promise you that it will be very cool. Besides, we have lots of festive holidays coming up. And I promise it will be festive and worth your time. Maybe a holiday decor basket and goodies?

Thanks in advance for your help.

May the best chocolate chip cookie win!
