Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

My favorite go-to cookie is definitely chocolate chip, but every once in awhile I get a craving for something different. 

This weekend I got a sweet tooth craving and I was out of chocolate chips, so I decided to make peanut butter cookies. Another deciding factor was because my lovely mother has been supplying my sister with random groceries since she came to stay with us, we have 3+ jars of peanut butter. LOVE YOU MOM! 

These cookies are easy to make and you will get a soft and chewy cookie!



Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients
1/2 cup butter, 1 stick softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 granulated sugar (to roll cookies in)

Directions
In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and peanut butter together together on medium high speed for about 30 seconds. Add in the sugar, light brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat together until combined and scrape down the sides of your bowl. Add in your egg and vanilla extract, once this is combined, add in the flour. If necessary, refrigerate the cookie dough to make it easier to handle.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Use a tablespoon to form about 1 inch balls. Roll them around in the extra 1/2 cup granulated sugar and place them on an un-greased baking sheet. Use a fork to make the classic criss-cross technique. 

Bake for 7-9 minutes. The cookie bottoms should be a light golden brown. Allow to set on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely! 

It's just that easy! Enjoy!

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.


We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 


The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
