Hide The Cookies

Hello! How is your day going? I ate some bad watermelon mid-morning and broke for lunch around noon. I’m not sure it was noon because my power randomly went out?! (And yeah, I should know better than to buy watermelon this out of season. Watermelon Fail.)IMG_2721 (800x600)

Luckily, reader Lindsey sent me this watermelon success she saw on Pinterest. I love when you send me fun watermelon ideas!watermelon pops(source)

It’s a beautiful day so Vegas is enjoying the outdoors! He’s also enjoying ignoring me. I might ignore his little scratches at the door to come back in. Two can play at this game cat.IMG_2723 (600x800)

Since I’ve declared it my life’s work to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie, I keep needing to “test” Ben’s cookies to double check if I’ve found it. Finally I decided to “hide” them from myself.

Basically, I put them in a less convenient location to slow me down. Note that the vodka and knock-off Malibu Rum is also up on this shelf. We have a lot of vices around here Winking smilehidden cookies

Putting the cookies out of reach isn’t much more effective than making me open four 100-calorie packs to get my fill of snacks, but keeping them in eye line is always a disaster. So, putting them in a cupboard helps some. It’s the little things that add up to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, right?

    What about putting them in the freezer? My downfall is peanut butter rice krispies treat frosted with milk chocolate. If I make them, I have to give them away. I will say that I make fantastic chocolate cupcakes. People will comment months after how good they are. It is too bad you aren’t on a quest for the perfect cupcake :)

        The cupcakes are really moist, and there is no eggs in them. :) You can come over the next time I make them…or just let me know when you are in Chicago next and I will be sure to make them then. :)

        I recently found a recipe for banana cake, using a browned butter frosting. That recipe is pretty delish too.

    i so wish i were one of those people who can eat just one cookie and then forget about them. sadly, it’s not like that in my world.

    I have the same issue! I have found somewhat of a solution though…

    I put em in the freezer! I actually put them in a container that is loud to open so everyone in the house knows when I’m getting into them. And of course you have to wait a minute or so to eat the cookie(s) which helps in preventing devastating the cookies immediately and going back for more.

    Cookies are my favorite. <3
