I think ever since my 19th birthday I've been asking that question, "How old am I and when did that happen?". I think it has something to do with the fact that people don't ask me on a regular basis how old I am. I always have to think about it too, how old I am. I guess it's because I always feel the same. Maybe that's what my elders were talking about. =/ I bet I'm going to have a hard time admitting I'm 84 when I'll be that old, especially if I still feel 40 LOL. Just like my grandfather. =]
I've been thinking about grandpa a lot lately. Wondering if he's out there and watching over me or if he is really only left in our hearts. Either way, I wish I could have gotten to know him better. Been a little older when he was around.
Okay, back to the birthday thing. It was a quiet day, with my boyfriend and his family but it was nice. Vlad remembered it was my birthday so that was pretty great and I got tons of birthday wishes and phone calls. I also was in a huge baking mood so I cooked one classic recipe and one new pinterest found recipe. The classic older one was the Nestles Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies but I used mini chocolate chips instead of regular size. If you haven't tried it, you should! It's got yummy chocolateness in every bite! Take a look (sorry for the bad photo quality)!
And of course it was a success as ever! It definitely impressed Jami and Rick too! haha!
The other thing I made which was new one was Reece's Peanut Butter Bars! This one was made with Vladimir in mind. I found it through pinterest on this website.
So, making this recipe made me realize right away the reason why Reese's Peanut butter cups are good. Take a look...
Judging by those ingredients, what's not to love!?
So here was the final result. It was easy to make and I think it tasted even better then the store bought ones! So very good!
So I made it and it was easy and fast and EVERYONE loved it! Changes I would recommend is to refrigerate for one hour then cut as desired. Then refrigerate a while longer to avoid the peanut butter bottom from crumbling (at least 2 hours if you have the time). However, either way it tastes just as fabulous!
So that's all I really have to report! =]
I hope you all are doing great! I'll be seeing my parents tomorrow and the in-laws and the parents are finally officially meeting this week! GETTING NERVOUS!
I'll report back soon I hope!
Hope you're all doing well!
