This is not a cooking blog.

Far from it. But I made these tonight. It may or may not have anything at all to do with hormones or monthly anything. I just wanted them.


No bake cookies. When you don't have all the ingredients for cookies but really need SOMETHING.

No-Bake Cookies
makes about 2 dozen

2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa
pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
3 cups oatmeal

Combine sugar, cocoa, milk and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Cook until the mixture starts to boil and cook for 1 minute.
Add vanilla, salt, peanut butter and oatmeal and quickly stir until combined.
Drop teaspoons onto parchment paper and let cool.


  1. Those are my favorite cookies in the world. One of the girls at work makes them.

  2. I hope she didn't try to tell anyone they were hard to make!

  3. Seems yummy!!

    Id rather eat cookie mixture and cake mixture before cooking - tastes better to me that way ;)

  4. How can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate?

  5. Now this is my kind of cooking for instant (almost) gratification.

  6. Ooooh they look soooo yummy!!!

  7. Hope you didn't eat them all at once! lol

  8. Actually I put half of them in the freezer and still have a number of the unfrozen ones left. I can only eat 1 or 2 and that's enough.
