Ok, this whole rearranging my Pinterest boards thing is about to drive me bonkers. Isn’t there an easier way? I started out with just a Sweet and Savory board, but it’s just not good enough. I need more categories, but it’s way annoying to move things into different categories. And what’s with some of the stuff that I pinned early on? LAME!! Oh well, at least I had these peanut butter cookies with Hershey’s Meltaways to snack on while going crazy on Pinterest.
Not only do I love cookies, especially when I’m tired, anxious, stressed, or sad (hello emotional eater!!), but more importantly I love to give them away. I’m such a firm believer that if ever you are feeling the weight of the world it’s time to turn the attention outward. Give a little love to someone else. Yes, the work will still be there when you get back, but somehow the load will seem lighter and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you accomplish things once you’ve served others.
Hersheys has these new Meltaway chocolates and they are pretty much essential in my life right now. Seriously, pop them in your favorite baked good and suddenly life aint so bad.
So, if I’m going to want you all to make the world’s best peanut butter cookie, with a silky chocolate center, and cinnamon sugar coating then I should probably giveaway a little don’t you think? Happy Valentines day baking to you!!
