My weight loss!

Saturday, 7 February 2009


I was in the mood for baking yesterday and I had some recipes for American cookies that I got off a website around Christmas time following links on my friend Erika's blog.You can check out her blog here
The recipes can be found here
First I went out and bought the ingredients needed.

Then I started baking. First up were snickerdoodles. Lovely soft cookies coated in cinnamon sugar.

Then I made the best soft chocolate chip cookies ever! Absolutely gorgeous!

Next I tried the peanut butter cookies. These were supposed to have Hersheys Kisses stuck in the middle but we don't get them in England and I didn't know what to replace them with so I left them plain. They are still lovely

Then Zoe had a go at the soft sugar cookies. Very nice!

But she got tired so I ended up waiting for them to cook and to take them out of the oven.

And last but not least were the oat and raisin cookies. These are lovely with a hint of cinnamon in them. I also did a half batch with no cinnamon for my friend.

So this is what we ended up with. Loads of gorgeous cookies. Enough to keep us going for ages and I still have more recipes to try!

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
