Can you believe that it’s already February? Time just seems to fly by anymore! And the older I get, the more precious time becomes! That’s one of the reasons that I love sharing recipes that are quick, simple and delicious! The less time you have to spend in the kitchen, the more time you have to spend with your family and friends! This week’s featured recipe, Milkshake Brownies, is certainly a favorite here because what’s not to love about chocolate?! AND…This recipe doesn’t take much more time to put together than using a boxed brownie mix, but OH MY!!! is it worth the little bit of extra effort! These yummy, gooey, chocolaty squares of deliciousness are AAAAMMMMAAAzing!!! Indulgent and delicious, who doesn’t need a little chocolate in their life? Give em a try! I’m sure you’ll be glad that you did! Have a great week! Lisa
Memaw’s Chocolate Chip Cookies are my absolute favorite! Soft, gooey and chewy on the inside and just crispy enough on the edges! I thought I’d add a few more pictures of the delectable bites of yummy goodness, hopefully to entice you to try this recipe! Memaw’s Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is one that I came up with after reviewing many different recipes and trying numerous different ways to create just the right one to get a thumbs up from my family and also to meet my expectations! I love the results of this recipe and I hope you will too! Memaw’s Chocolate Chip Cookies are simple, easy and delicious!
Memaw’s Chocolate Chip Cookies should look like this when you remove them from the oven; a little crispy around the edges, and appear slightly doughy in the center. As a result, you’ll get the soft and gooey centers along with chewy edges! YUM!
Give them a a few minutes to rest on the baking pan before removing them to either a cookie rack or, like I do, to a counter covered with wax or parchment paper and let them finish cooling there!

Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great Fall and enjoying the many activities that come along with the changing of the seasons!

process the cookies in a food processor until they are fine crumbs.
Add cookie crumbs, reserving ¼ cup, to a medium bowl; add granulated sugar and whisk together to combine. Stir in the melted butter and pour crumb mixture into a 9”x13” pressing mixture down to form the crust; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and beat with a mixer until fluffy. Add one 16 oz. package of whipped topping to the cream cheese and continue beating with a mixer until combined well. Add the powdered sugar, pudding mix, cocoa, milk and make sure to mix well between adding each ingredient. When mixture is combined well, and is light and fluffy, poor over crust and spread evenly.
Add remaining package of whipped topping to the chocolate layer and spread evenly. Sprinkle reserved cookie crumbs over the top and refrigerate until serving.
Hard to believe, but Fall is just around the corner! I love this time of year with cooler temps, colorful landscapes and baking delicious desserts just like this week’s featured recipe! Country Peach Cobbler was a hit at my house this weekend! I was pleasantly surprised by a generous gift of a half a case of yummy peaches straight from Georgia! Thanks again Zach! They smelled amazing and with a little help from family, we worked them up and viola! Country Peach Cobbler was on the table, and, believe me, it didn’t last long! I hope you give this delicious recipe a try! I would love to hear from you so be sure to leave me your comments on how this recipe turns out! Hope you all have an awesome week!!… Lisa
