Yum!

To be honest I'm not a real big fan of the kitchen. I guess I have way to many other things I'd rather be doing. (There's just too many art/craft projects I have to work on!) Once in awhile I get the urge to make something good... but it doesn't happen enough. I enjoy looking at some other people's blogs who have yummy pictures of food and I just wish they'd come to my house. Ha! Anyway since I'm not real into the whole cooking scene I seem to lean towards... okay love sweets! To be more exact... chocolate and if you combine it with peanut butter, well I'm just in food heaven. These peanut butter fudge cookies pictured above are soooo good! They don't last long, and the sad part is, I'm the only one that eats them! Hubby is training for a marathon so he eats super healthy. Me on the other hand... thank God He gave me a high metabolism!!!

They don't look all that delicious in person but when you bight into one you are pretty much addicted. They have to be kind of healthy right?...they're made with oatmeal and cocoa. (I just tell my self there are worse things!) They are available in some store bakery sections but here's the recipe if you would like to make them.

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies:
4T butter
1/2c. cocoa
1c. sugar
1/2c. condensed milk
dash salt
2tsp pure vanilla
2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
3c. uncooked oatmeal

Microwave butter until melted. Add cocoa and blend. Add sugar, milk, and salt. Blend well. Microwave on high 1 minute 30 seconds to full boil. Do not scorch! Add vanilla, peanut butter and oatmeal. Stir well. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper and cool.
Enjoy!

I can relate, I love good food, but my cooking skills are limited.
