About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. butter
3 T. cocoa powder
1 t. salt
3 c. quick cooking oats, raw
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. broken walnuts (optional)
1 c. coconut (optional)

Put the sugar, milk, cocoa, butter and salt in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for approximately 4 minutes (if you don't boil long enough the cookies won't set - too long and they won't stick together). Remove from heat and quickly stir in the oats, vanilla, nuts and coconut. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper.

about 2 dozen cookies
