Oh a new Kindle 3 would help me  banish all the book clutter in the house. We cannot seem to part with any of our reading materials very easily, as is plain to see.

I would love to be a shining example of how the before and after could be with a new Kindle3.  My friends would be amazed if there were not books everywhere. They would surely wonder what we are doing to keep up our reading hobby.

Please pick me ( mom1198) for the new BzzCampaign for the Kindle3!!

Ringing in the New Year with some Lindt Truffles!

Wow the Holidays fort of flew by, it was crazy busy at our house, and now we are hoping to get back on track.

I was so excited to get a great packaged delivered by my trusty UPS man…..

Not 1

But 2bags of Lindt Truffles!!  The first bag is Dark Chocolate Peppermint (yeah, no one else likes them much so all the more for me) and the second bag is Assorted chocolates (so I’ll have to share those).

I won these at a great giveaway from Marcy  over at Stretching a Buck! Be sure to stop over and check out her blog where she posts all the great deals from places like CVS, Rite Aid, Target and several grocery stores.

Thanks Marcy!

More Summer Bounty: Zucchini Cookies

In my never ending quest to find some new and creative uses for the abundance of Zucchini we are harvesting daily, I stumbled upon this tasty recipe  for Zucchini Cookies over at Hoosier Homemade.

As usual I made a few minor tweaks to suit my tastes,  so below is the recipe as I made it. If you want to see the original recipe & some step by step photos please visit Hoosier Homemade! (and check out her cupcakes, oh my!)

Zucchini Cookies

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 – 1 ¼ cup grated zucchini  (lightly packed in the cup)
  • 2 cups flour: a blend of 1 ½ cup white, ½ cup wheat (I may use more wheat next time)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 375° F

In large bowl cream butter and sugar together until nice and smooth.  Add egg and mix well.  Stir in shredded zucchini.

In a medium bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda and spices,  and whisk to mix well.

Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until just moistened.

Gently fold in the raisins.

Drop by tablespoon full onto cookie sheet (I use  a small cookie  scoop to makes it easier)

Bake 8-10 minutes.  Cool on pan about 1 minute before removing to wire rack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These were super moist and very tasty, reminding me a little bit of a spicy oatmeal raisin cookie, but smoother. I may add a little ground flax seed to the flour mixture for a little more texture next time.

The boys were not so sure they wanted to eat Zucchini Cookies, but after a taste, they love them!  Too bad, I was hoping to save more for me!

Now what to do with the rest of the Zucchini?? Any ideas?
