We did a lot of baking over the holidays, from cakes to cookies, to deep frying a turkey (Twice). There were so many amazing treats that I just had to take pictures of them and share them all with you.

Today's treat is the worlds best chocolate chip cookies. I make these gluten free for my son who can't have gluten and if I didn't tell you they were gluten free you wouldn't even know. You can also make them regular for those of you who don't have special diet needs.

  • 1/2 TSP almond extract (Optional)
  • 2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour (Or Gluten free flour)
  • 1 12oz package chocolate chips (Or if you're like me, packages)
  1. Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the shortening and butter.
  3. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar and baking soda and mix well.
  4. Mix in the eggs, vanilla and almond extract.
  5. Mix in the flour and the chocolate chips until everything is well combined.
  6. Drop dough in rounded spoon fulls two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. 
  7. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
  8. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  9. Enjoy!
Everyone in my family love these cookies and they are my go too treat when I have the need to bake something sweat. I hope you and your family enjoys them as much as we do.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
