birth control pills order now Confession. It’s December 14th and there’s not one single Christmas decoration up in my house. And, if I’m laying it all out here, I haven’t even really started shopping. I know! It’s terrible. And it’s so unlike me. I don’t know what happened. So I’ll keep it short here because I need to go find a Christmas tree. And make a wreath for the door. And spend the night in the mall. And
more info change the curtains because our normal orange ones won’t match the Christmas decor. I’m so serious. But I needed to share these with you. Because somehow, with a to-do list that could make anyone cry, I’ve found the time to make more cookies. Weird. The original recipe uses macadamia nuts. I normally really hate nuts in my cookies (and brownies) but these sounded good to me, so I bought macadamia nuts. Have you bought macadamia nuts recently? Did they go up in price? Is there a shortage? Because whoa. $$$$$. So, I tried again with pecans because I didn’t want to post a recipe that required you to buy nuts at $15-20 a pound. But I wasn’t a fan. So, I tried again with walnuts. And this is where I realize…I know exactly why I haven’t done anything I need to do. But that’s ok, because sometimes you just need to stop everything and make cookies. over the counter antibiotics order now Chocolate Walnut Chewies (adapted from Martha Stewart Living; makes about 30 cookies) Ingredients: 3 cups confectioners’ sugar 3/4 cups baking cocoa (unsweetened) 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt Small pinch of nutmeg 5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (I used chocolate chips) 1.5 cups chopped raw walnuts 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 large egg whites Directions: 1.
