Cookies On A Stick

My cousin Jana bought me this totally cool cookbook. It's called Paula Deen's My First Cookbook. I saw this recipe in there and wanted to make it. My cousins Drue and Presley came over so I decided this would be a good time to make this. It was so much fun.

Things you will need:

Cookie Sheet
Cutting Board
Pop Sticks
Oven Mitt
Wire Rack

Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Mini or Regular sized M&M's

1. Turn on the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Take the wrapper off the cookie dough. Put the dough on the cutting board and slice it 1 inch thick. Insert a pop stick into the bottom of the cookie shoving it in half way into the cookie. Cover the top of each cookie with the M&M's: press them lightly into the dough. Put the cookies far enough apart so they have room to spread.

3. Bake for 13 minutes.

4. Remove cookies from the oven using an oven mitt. Let them cool on a wire rack. Watch out: Do not try to pick the cookies up off the cookie sheet until they cool or the stick will come out. After the cookies are cooled a little bit, you can use the spatula to carefully remove the cookies from the pan and put them on the wire racks to cool completely.

Even Baby Dylan enjoyed them!

Holy Guacamole

The very first recipe that I am going to post is my favorite. I make it everytime my mom buys avocados. It was the very first thing I learned how to make by myself. It's really easy and really yummy. There really isn't a recipe for this so I just add everything and keep tasting it until I like the way it tastes. I like to eat it with tortilla chips.

First you start with some ripe avocados. Scoop them out of the shell and throw the shell away. Keep the seed inside so you can put it in your guacamole if you don't eat it all. It will help it from browning. But we usually eat it all so I never have to keep the seed.

Next you smash up the avocados with a fork. It's up to you how chunky you want it to be.

Then you add lemon juice, garlic salt, sour cream and lime. Mix it all together and taste it to see if you need to add anymore ingredients. It's really however you like it.

Serve it with chips.
