I Love Country

I've shared a couple of song collections, before.  I decided it was time for some sad, cool country:

Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Mix in a mixer in the following order (beat between each addition):

2 1/2 sticks real butter
2 C sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla extract
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
3/4 C cocoa
2 C flour

Shape into cookies and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

***this recipe is adapted from one that includes lots of add-ins like nuts and chocolate chips, so if do so you feel inclined...I just created this recipe for a plain chewy cookie

Where to Grow

I've got my broken places
and fears, so many fears

When I try to grow
I do it by avoiding those places

Hunkered down against the pain I plead 
with God to make it pass

Instead I will grasp the pain 
and ask something good to grow

In that spot.

Double Chocolate {health} muffins

Since I've already extolled the virtues of plain yogurt and cocoa powder in another post, I'll spare you that for now...but today I was craving an oat muffin and I decided to come up with a whole new recipe!  It's kind of a combo of the flavor of this with the texture of this.

In a blender mix:

3 or 4 ripe bananas
2 C plain greek yogurt
3 t baking powder
1 C sugar
2/3 C cocoa
6 C regular oats

Pour into greased muffin tins and sprinkle tops with chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 for 13-18 minutes.
