I can't remember if I've shared this recipe on the blog before or not. Even so, I've changed the ingredients a bit. I made no-bakes on Sunday afternoons A LOT growing up. They also call them preacher cookies. I believe the story was if you saw the preacher coming up "the hill" and you didn't have any home goodness baked to offer him, you could whip these up and they'd be ready before he got to your house. Sound legit to me :) I like them because I like chocolate, I like sweet stuff, I like oats, enough said. 

Here is the original recipe

1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 T cocoa
Melt those together bringing to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Also, set out the next 3 ingredients along with a piece of wax or parchment paper because you will need to work quickly.

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 t vanilla
3-3 1/2 cups oatmeal

Mix into the boiled mixture. Drop the cookies onto the paper and let cool. The easiest way I've found to do this is 2 teaspoons. As they are cooling make sure you lick the spoons you used and wash the dishes. It's easier clean-up that way.

Since my son can't have dairy right now, I substituted Earth Balance soy free butter and unsweetened almond milk.

Easter 2013

 I'm sitting in my little house, my son has been asleep on the floor for a while now, my peach is in her swing, my husband and I are on the couch watching the last episode on History channel "The Bible". I was blessed all day as we celebrated the Risen Savior - potluck breakfast at church, worshiped with our brothers/sisters in Christ and broke bread with family. The series "The Bible" has put a visual of what living during the events recorded in the Bible would have been like - the miracles, the persecution, Christ dying on the cross for our sins. Any sin, your sin, my sin - in God's eyes there is no weight (murder, stealing, lying). One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess the He is Lord! You have a choice - Choose HIM!

And  now for a few pictures from the day :)

Instead of names on the drinks -I put phrases on them
