As I’ve mentioned before, I organise a “craft” once a month for our MOPS* group. Last week at MOPS we made Anna’s Emergency Cookies. It even comes with a free printable….and you know how I feel about those, as well as having a soft spot for things in jars!
As the school holidays were coming up I felt it the perfect item to have on the shelf when looking for an activity for the kids or if someone is coming over. Also a good gift for someone who has just had a baby. Of course we had to test it out…
& there were a couple of very willing helpers, especially when it came to licking the spoon.
It just so happens that we have had such emergencies more than once over the last couple of weeks. I have never been good at biscuits but these are the best biscuits that I’ve made in a long time! Nice and soft and chocolatey & by the fingers in the photo below you can see I’m not the only one that feels that way…
While we are on the topic of Anna… She passed on to me a lovely blog award a month ago now… thanks so much – I’m honored! Anna’s blog Shiny Happy Art is one of my absolute favorites, for her honesty & sense of humour, her fantastic artwork and her shared love of birthday parties & simple meals.
As part of the Liebster blog award, I need to list three other blogs that I like which I feel are worth some “extra attention”…
Sarah from Oesch & Doots – for her beautiful photos & thoughtful thoughts on motherhood.
Brenda from Mira Narnie – whose been a friend right from the start of this blog and has great recipes & craft ideas!
Kate from Loose Change – although she hasn’t blogged in a while (hint, hint) I really enjoy her intelligent and down-to-earth writing. I also feel privileged to have her as a friend in real life!
Lucy from the Kitchen Maid – for her creative writing and yummy recipes – someone else already gave her this award, so I thought I’d just give her an honorary mention!
