Blonde Chocolate Chip Brownies
You will need:
1/3 cup margarine, softened ( I use butter)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup chocolate chips (go ahead--you know you want to add more)
Preheat your oven to 350
Spray an 8x8 pan
Put the margarine in a mixer (medium) and mix well
Add sugar and mix well
Add egg and vanilla to the butter mixture and mix well
In a separate large bowl, mix flour, soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread mixture using a rubber scraper in the greased 8x8 square pan.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Yum--Trust me…you will love.
PS--I find it funny that I am posting this after writing about my dog and his weight problem. Oh the irony!

Things aren’t so bad that my dog looks like this
Stage: In a room at the vet office
Me: Okay Parker…Hop up on the scale
Vet: I don’t understand--your dog has gained 8 pounds since last year…yet he looks so svelte.
Me: Turns to the camera and breaks the fourth wall like old school Fresh Prince episodes-- smiles, winks and whispers “Thanks Doggy Spanx!”
Me: Turns back to vet--Well you know muscle weighs more than fat so I am sure that is the reason…

***Note for crafters*** While at the beach I must have a project and I love to make handmade critters for my daughter. I thought I would share a project from a lovely book "Sock and Glove" --check it out if you get a chance.

I feel like the etsy stars aligned for me yesterday. I had a bracelet get selected for fp. Plus...drum roll please - - - - - - - - - - - A treasury I created went Front Page! This is a first for me! Sadly, I had to hear about this second hand and not see it in person (darn job) but it still made my day and I was so happy for the artists. I think at least 3 had sales from this and I know there were lots of clicks and hearts. This was a treat! Check out the lovely items and make your wish list. As for me...I am getting my next etsy collection together with the nifty poster sketch tool.

Okay so when you make front page on etsy you feel like the...shiznit! You jump around and holler and are king of the wooooooooooooooorld. Then you realize the front page treasury was at 6:00 am and you still have no sales. Oh pickles (saying I am forced to use in poor effort to curse less since there is a 3 year old in the house). Still it made my day (read week). ha ha ha. Thank you Moonovermaize!!!

- An outlet--I gotta have someplace to put the random thoughts in my head.
- A place to pimp my etsy shop…Magillie. That is http://magillie.etsy.com --I said http://magillie.etsy.com yup http://magillie.etsy.com. Eat your heart out Bill O’Reilly. I am going to push my shop as much as you do your book. Muwahhahahaha. Okay so really I could never be that bad.
- Yup..you guessed it! Finally a place where I can talk about my family! Oh cripes…not another mommy blog!!! If this doesn’t have you running from your computer (heh heh) I don’t know what will.
Wow I am nervous and it shows in this writing. Starting your online identity is a lot of pressure so I guess in the words of Seinfeld “I’m leaving on a good (high) note” eeerrr at least I hope that I am. Hope to see you lovely readers (Am I really gonna have people that read this? Besides my mother’s obligatory reading???) again soon.
For all you grammarians I will attempt to correctly use my punctuation and spelling but most likely I will just say effit and write what I am going to write. I will try to contain my …s though. If I used them all up what would Kanye do? Oh snap.
