No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup of peanut butter

1 cup of honey

1 1/4 cup of milk powder

1 1/4 cup of powdered sugar

Mix to form dough with wood spoon

Kneaded dough with chocolate chips

Roll and press dough on wax paper

Sumi and I made these quick peanut butter cookies. It was so easy and so tasty. We used honey in our mix and added chocolate chips. When we were done, we refrigerated our cookies and they tasted just as yummy and a little more firm. I am going to make these with my boys and use cookie cutters instead. I would assume you would dip the cutters in either milk powder or powdered sugar so the cookie dough won't stick. A great idea would be to make icecream cookies with these. I found this recipe on ReachOutMichigan website. Click the title, its linked!


My daughter started this poncho but became so busy with other things and gave it me. I crocheted about 3 rows and then I realized I was out of yarn. To finish it I would have to hope that his yarn shop still has it in stock which might not be a possibility. So if they don't have it, what else can I do with it?

Made these last night..

I have always wanted to make polymer clay handles for my crochet hooks. After crocheting for a while my hands start hurting, expecially when the hooks are small. I went on www.tapestrycrochet.com and found a video on how to do them. I went and dug out some polymer clay and made my handles. I tried mixing colors and making spiral designs, it was a lot of fun. I made a big handle for my size N hook, its so comfortable. I was up late last night watching "In the valley of Elah" and making my handles at the same time. I left the baking for morning. I put them in my toaster oven, baked for 45 minutes and here they are.

I caught the cold bug

First the kids got sick and them me. Today I am feeling much better than two days ago. I thought I would have to make that trip to the doctor. I was hoping not to. I have endured 3 days of chinese herbal tea. The kind that is so bitter that you can't do anything about it, just drink it. Yesterday I felt like I had a cold sweat, that's a sign that I am getting better. Well, it hindered my efforts to knit, but I did read. I am trying to learn how to knit cables on looms and needles, so I read a little on that. I also watched some videos too. Today I posted a little pic of a little bag I made for my friend from leftover yarn.
