6:30- AHH ITS FRIDAY!!!!

11:30 – “oh i just love fridays! laughing, working, talking about our weekends, yay!

1:00 – “omg this day will never end.”

2:30 – “are there seriously 2 more hours left?  I think I might just leave, my brain does not work anymore!”


I know it is going to happen, and every friday those afternoon hours sneak up on me and bring me down.  But wait! I remember that I made delicious cookies last night and brought a few to work! But I am on a diet… so I heated them up in the microwave for the lucky souls who got to try them.  Afterall… I did eat 2 last night… and about 5 rolos…. but that dinner was healthy!

Back to it being Friday.  If you work hard all week, eat healthy, and work out, then geeeez do you deserve a cookie and a beer.  Or as R Kelly would say, “it’s the freakin weekend baby i’m about to have me some fun.”

These cookies are a cinch. childs play. facile. elementary. a piece of cake. ha! i get it.  I do hope I am smarter than I sound sometimes… although I did just look up easy on for all of those synonyms.  Let’s just get back to what I do best.

Mix up a little cake mix with eggs and oil.

Another 4 ingredient recipe to make everyone smile 🙂  Just scoop up the dough in your hand and flat it out a little.  Then place the rolo onto, followed by another scoop of dough.  And if you really want to get crazy, add a pretzel to the mix!

Then just pinch the sides together to cover the inside goodness, pop them on a parchment covered cookie sheet, and wait.  8 whole minutes.  Try not to sing Madonnas song “Hung Up”…

Then take them out and wait as long as humanly possible, so about 5 minutes, throw some powdered sugar on them, then bite into this goodness.
