A few weeks ago we went to the 200th Anniversary of the Battle at Horseshoe Bend with Monkey’s Cub scout den. We enjoyed hearing the stories as well as seeing the demonstrations.

Lately I have had an obsession with the combination of chocolate and strawberries. I came across a myriad of wonderful recipes with this sweet pair on pinterest. I decided to give these a try last week. They turned out beautifully. So easy! My son said these were the best cookies he’s ever had! I almost left them in there too long as you can see there is just a bit of browness on a few of them. So look carefully at step 7!
Servings: 24 cookies
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
1 regular sized strawberry cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray.
This is another one from the folder called Fort Davis/Terlingua. There are so many good ones in that folder, so you will be seeing more and more from this one. It’s not too often that Dad is in a picture, so I just had to post this one. You can see he’s been riding his bike through the West Texas Mountains. Love it!
I found this recipe in Sandra Lee’s cook book called Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade Fast Fix Family Favorites that I recently received from Paperback Swap. I found tons of recipes in this book that I want to try. This one was actually supposed to be cooked in the crockpot, but I didn’t realize that until the afternoon that I had it scheduled. It easily adapted into a 30 minute meal.
