So the first week in South Carolina has been great! So beautiful. I’ve been loving it. A new semester started Monday, we are all unpacked, Ceth started his internship, and best of all my mother in law, Carol, and I have just started our garden! I am so excited about it. We are putting in the seeds tomorrow. I can’t wait to make delicious recipes with our homegrown veggies.
So it’s really humid here. Which I actually like but it’s hard to adjust to it, cooking wise, since I am still used to the dry, cold Rexburg. I am struggling a bit to find ideas for Summer/Spring meals. Fall/Winter meals are so easy because comfort food is the best but it’s going to be a learning curve for me here. I learned how to work the grill though tonight with some yummy grilled chicken wraps so I think I’ll be using a lot with that.
Summer, Winter, or whatever weather we’re in though this family will always make No-Bake Cookies. Or “poop” cookies as Ceth’s family likes to call them. Lol. With extra peanut butter. Crunchy Peanut Butter.
- 2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 stick butter
- pinch of salt
- 3 TBSP baking cocoa
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- Mix your sugar, milk, butter, cocoa and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil to dissolve. Once your mixture begins to boil let it sit for 1 minute and 45 seconds, no longer or less. Take it off the heat once the time is up.
- Immediately stir in your peanut butter, oatmeal, and vanilla.
- Plop them in cookie shapes onto tin foil or wax paper. It’ll take about 10 minutes to set up.
Well, I’ll be scouring my food instagram for yummy summer recipes- my favorite downtime thing to do/going to bed activity. (Does not help with my “try-to-look-good-this-summer-diet”. It’s hard to care when I’m looking at food as good as my fellow bloggers. I think it’s worth it though.)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week and gets to enjoy some no-bake cookies a night or two.
