bless your family or anyone else you might be feeding- neighbors, in-laws, hoodlum children from down the street, friends and such.. you must give this super easy, quick recipe a try.
Dump the following into a big bowl:
2 cups peanut butter,
3 cups rice crispies (I used chocolate rice crispies)
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
Mix and form into balls. (I used a small cookie scooper, scraping the excess flat against the side of the bowl for a rounded yet flat-on-the-bottom truffle shape.) Microwave 2 pkgs chocolate chips until smooth and melted, dip balls in chocolate. Lift balls out with one fork underneath the flat side of the chocolate covered balls, scraping excess chocolate on side of bowl and use a second fork to gently push ball off, and onto parchment paper lined baking sheet or cutting board. (Place into refrigerator to harden.) If desired, drizzle remaining melted chocolate back and forth over hardened balls for a truffle-like look.
share. Or just borrow my son, because he can't seem to get enough of these.
here, and put together simple but sweet teacher gifts. A lot of you asked about them after seeing a peak at them on Instagram. (Don't my hoodlums look thrilled with having this photo taken in the dark of the early morning, before school? Ha! #wearenotafanofearlymorningsinthishouse.) Also, I had to google the word use of "whom" because I wasn't sure about this grammar. Apparently it's correct. Who knew. #itsnotlikeimanexperthere #wetalklikeidiotsinthiscentury (Again, the hashtags are simply to crack up my man. Thanks for letting me be silly here.)
sweet friend Tiffiny put a big red bow on her Christmas tree to remember the tragically lost souls from the Connecticut shootings last week. I followed suit and our entire family, is praying for them, as I know yours are as well.
Oh friends, we can't possibly understand the horrific "why" can we? All we can know is that;
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it" Isaiah 55:8-11
