These Pictures May Make You Queasy

if you’ve eaten as much as I have over the last week or so. 

I like to bake….and make candy….and then give it away.  I made these morsels a few weeks ago, before everyone was tired of sweet stuff.  Here are some pictures of my efforts.

Lots of chocolate chip cookies!!!

Microwave Peanut Brittle (Tom’s specialty)

My grandma made these when I was a kid and then my mom and now I make them.  They are called “Martha Washington’s” coconut, pecans, eagle brand milk, butter & powdered sugar mixed up, rolled into balls and dipped into chocolate.  Tom’s the dipper in the family.

These are pecan sandies that would not come off the cookie sheet.  I thought it only fair to show my screw ups along with the good stuff :)

*gasp* BROWNIE with Reese's cups? I have often made used chocolate chip cookie dough but never brownies! Wowzers. I think I am going to have a new fave! (Just as soon as I get back from Guam and have a kitchen again).
