M&M Cookies

                                     Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while, I’ve been busy with homework   -__-.  Well anyways, since I had extra time yesterday, I wanted to bake. So, I grabbed all of my ingredients and made up my own recipe! Yup, this recipe was 100% mine with NO “adaptations” or “inspired by”. Oh and I’m proud to say that I have 200 followers on Twitter! If you want to follow me, look-up @AmandasBakery. So, few things have happened this week:

1. I am now a JV for the SPCA! I applied and I made it! After Winter Break, I will get to work a 4 hour shift every other weekend. I mean 4 hours of seeing animals is like super cool. And I’m helping those animals be happy and find good homes <3.

2. CHRISTMAS SHOPPING: I mean I love Christmas, but the shopping-for-presents part is a different story. Everyone has a crazed look in their eyes, searching for the perfect Christmas present for their loved ones. And I’m just standing there, a 13 year-old girl against parents. I mean it’s not hard to just push me out of the way. But luckily, I was smart and got my shopping done by now and so that will save me from going to the mall again.

3. This week, I had a band concert. It was special to me because it was my last Winter band concert in middle school. To think that next year I will become a Freshman is a little crazy. I look at the 6th graders and remember when I was a little 6th grader. Time has gone by so fast………….

4. Well, let me tell you about these cookies. If you are a big M&M fan, these are perfect for you. These cookies are down right the quickest I have made yet. They are also my Older Brothers new favorite. He says and I quote “These are you BEST cookies you have made!”! He even asked me to bake another batch for his friends. I took the first batch to school today, and they were gone within 10 minutes! Everyone loved them! These cookies are so nice and chewy. I mean who doesn’t love M&M’s and cookies?? But both of them together is just sheer pleasure for your taste buds……
