Back To School No Bake Cookies

I started a little tradition when my oldest started preschool. I would have cookies waiting for him when he got home from his first day of school. This year he opted for the No Bake kind, which is fine with me since it's so hot outside still. I know there are ton of varieties out there of this same cookie, but this is the recipe I used this time.

No Bake Cookies

2 Cups Sugar

1 stick of butter/margarine

5 rounded Tbsp cocoa

1/2 cup milk

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup peanut butter

4 cups oatmeal

Combine sugar, butter, cocoa, and milk in saucepan; cook to steady boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add other ingredients. Spoon out on waxed paper.

If You Hear Chriping.....

If you hear chirping, it's just me making something with my new one of these................

I bought myself an early birthday present. I read some of the directions and then starting cutting stuff out. Looking at the images that came with the included cartridge I was inspired to make this: I used a card base from the Card Value Pack. I used Elemental Paper Pack (one of my favorites). I used Dessert Sand Cardstock for the brackets and Smoothie Cardstock for the ric rac ribbon. The three buttons are from the Basic Collection and I put Colonial White Waxy Flax through the holes.

I had so much fun making it! I have a few more ideas looming in the brain, but they will have to wait for another day.

Lemon Cheesecake Yogurt Cups

I found this recipe on one of my newest favorite blogs called Gina's Skinny Recipes. I love it because she breaks down the food stats and for those of you doing the Weight Watcher thing, she gives you the points too! I made these late at night after my Crop 'Til You Drop so I forgot to put the wafer on the bottom, but I tried them this morning and they were still good, but I'm sure would be even better with the wafer. Darn it, I'll have to make them again.

• 12 reduced fat vanilla wafers
• 8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1 tsp vanilla
• 6 oz fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt
• 2 large egg whites
• 3 tbsp lemon juice
• 1 tbsp lemon zest (I didn’t use this, but will try it next time)
• 1 tbsp all purpose flour
• 24 blackberries


Heat oven to 350°.

Line cupcake tin with liners. Place a vanilla wafer at the bottom of each liner.

Gently beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth using an electric mixer. Gradually beat in fat free yogurt, egg whites, lemon juice, lemon zest and flour. Do not over beat. Pour into cupcake liners filling half way.

Bake 25 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool to room temperature. Add berries (I added more than two each because I liked having a berry for each bite) Chill a few hours in the refrigerator.

Only 109 calories each!
