8:57pm cookies


I love baking. Sometimes though, I don’t feel like eating or sometimes I can’t identify what I want, so I go to Danielle.



“Hey. What do you want.”


“What kind”

“Chocolate chip”


Boom. Problem solved. Fun begins.


I scour for recipes. I only have a chocolate cupcake recipe as my go-to, so pretty much every time I bake, I get to try a new recipe!


This time, I looked for chocolate chip cookies that served 6. It was just my sister and I in for the night, so I wanted to make a good recipe with all the regular ingredients, but not have tons of cookies (because I’d already made doughnuts and cookies in the last 36 hours).


It was a stroke of genius.


Here is the process! It didn’t seem like much, but I ended up making 4 small cookies round one, then 3 large cookies after! I used the toaster oven, it was a fun tiny time 🙂

Don’t they look delicious in this high quality photo??!


Okay they were super good. And here’s the recipe I used.


4 mini and 3 bigger sized chocolate chip cookies!

1/2 c flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

Mix these together.

In a microwave safe bowl, (I used a measuring cup)

3 tablespoons of melted butter * use a bit more if you’re measuring and then melting *

1/4 c of brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg yolk

Then, mix it all together!

Now add a handful of bigger chocolate chips and then a handful of a smaller ones, then add a handful of whichever ones are your favorite.

Now roll out the size cookies you want! I kind of pressed mine down, otherwise they’re more on the scone-y height.


Bake these babies off at 325F for about 8-10 minutes, and viola! Cookies! They don’t spread much.


Danielle approved, which is actually medium level praise!

This is what my critters thought of this production.





Long Shanks


This is the very first picture that comes up when I google, “long shanks,” a nickname my endearing Grandmother has given me.


You can’t even see his arms in this picture. Or like the 12 after. BUT my Grandmother deemed this name appropriate for meeee because of my long arms! Today we are talking about my arms. My armssss. Talkin’ ’bout…my armss!!


Look. My sleeves never match my level of celebration.


Not on my 81st birthday, not now.

And for a while, my arms bothered me. Nothing ever fit them. They scared me if I looked at them at a weird angle.


But now, when my Grandmother calls me that, it makes me laugh. And she never ever met for it to be mean, she was just pointing it out. But now, I love talking about how long my arms are. I am the go-to to reach tall things or things wedged between things, and my sister even said I have never failed in my reach.


I now get medium sized long-sleeves. And it’s great. Like not just saying that, I am so happy with my arms. Love what God gave ya, amirighttt??!



Also I can have way more fun waving them around. And good luck getting around these windmills when I’m guarding you for some three on three.


I joke and enjoy my long arms so much, my friends even try to have long arms too. It’s now a cool thing. It’s basically the next trend. Arm extensions are coming. Say goodbye to hair extensions for the next big thing!

First blog post is what they told me to call this

This is my first post. On this blog. But I have had many blogs before. This is perhaps my fifteenth blog. But this time is different.
You see, this time, I am in college. And interesting things happen in college. Also more weird things happen, so that’s good too!

Soooo hello! Look at my “about me” page if you have other questions that probably won’t be answered!
