Chocolate Covered Surprise

These look like regular Chocolate Chip Cookies.
But when you bite into them, you get a little surprise.


Instead of being just plain Chocolate Chip Cookies, they have these inside!

I used my regular Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, but in place of the chips, I added in chocolate covered raisins instead!


Sometimes change is good!

Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies
1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 cups all purpose flour

2 cups chocolate covered raisins

Cream together sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Gradually add in dry ingredients. Mix in the chocolate covered raisins. Bate at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes.

Pillow and Art Wall Questions.

After I posted pictures of my Entertainment Center turned Bench , I had a ton of people email and comment asking about my pillows.


I picked up my pillows at TJ Maxx, and I found similar ones for my couch at Marshalls. I also just recently discovered that another blogger actually bought the exact same fabric online to make some very pretty curtains.
Judith at Creating Balance did a whole post on finding the fabric {Wilmington-Covington-Multi}and where she bought it.

I also had a few people ask about the Kid's Art Wall Clothes Line that I have hanging in my hallway for the boys' art.


Jason actually did all the work associated with hanging the clothes line, but I don't mind sharing what he did. Here is a close up of the end of the clothes line.

I think this is called an eye bolt. We decided how big we wanted the clothes line to be, and Jason screwed in two eye bolts on either end. Then he cut some picture hanging wire to the length that we wanted and twisted each end of the wire onto the eye bolts. Super easy to do...at least it looked easy while I was watching him do it!

P.S. Those were blueberries all over my kitchen floor in the picture from yesterdays post. Fresh blueberries from my parents' yard that Henry and my mom picked. I was just a little sad to have to throw them away.
