So throughout the years I have collected recipes from all kinds of places. I love getting yummy recipes. Some I get off the internet, in magazines, off food boxes, the newspaper, friends, etc. I'm pretty much always on the lookout for good recipes. So I have a great collection, yet I have made very few of them. Well I decided I should start making the recipes and that way I can keep them if they're good or throw them out if they're not for us. I have recently come across two yummy recipes I wanted to share.
Non-stick cooking spray or melted butter, as needed for pan
3 c large marshmallows
3/4 c nut butter, such as cashew, almond, peanut or hazelnut
1 10 to 12-ounce box brown rice cereal
1/2 c dried cranberries
2/3 c chopped pecans, toasted
2/3 c chopped cashews, toasted
White Chip Chocolate cookies
1 c butter, softened
2 t vanilla extract
2 c all-purpose flour
3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t baking soda
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the white chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are set. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
** I like softer cookies so I cooked them for 7 to 8 minutes. Then let them sit for just as long as it takes to be able to get them off the cookie sheet.They would also make great ice cream sandwiches. YUM!!!!

So, In case you were wondering who the cutest baby in the world is, just watch this video and you'll find out. Some of you out there with babies of your own may disagree, but that's ok. We all know the truth.

So I have been rather busy lately and haven't posted a blog for months. I feel like I have been so out of touch with the world. And although Adam has posted pictures (which I'm very grateful for) let's be honest, he is one with few words so to find out what's going on you have to go to the source, me the very very, sometimes too much, talkative one. We're a perfect match I would say!
So life has been wonderful and we're staying busy with this little rascal that we love so much. He gets cuter everyday if that's even possible. Just recently I've realized though how easy it would be to let Collin be the center of our lives and neglect our marriage as a result. You love these little babies so much and you put so much effort into taking care of them and they're so helpless and they need you for everything that you neglect everything else. I'm afraid I've been doing that lately and we have only gone on one date since Collin has been born. That is so unacceptable. We love being parents and having a family, but it's sure life changing. So we have lots of adjusting to do and we have to learn how to balance all of our priorities, our marriage being crucial. Sorry if that sounds sad, we're doing great, but I just realized that it takes a lot of work.
Anyway I have to just say how wonderful, sorry to all of you that had to start school, it is to walk by campus and feel no pressure or stress since i'm finished!!! Ha ha I love being home. I miss learning, but I don't miss the stress, pressure, and constant feeling of impending deadlines. I have to admit taking care of Collin is totally a full time job and I thought I would have plenty of free time to focus on me. That isn't the case this little guy is a handful, but I love it and I definitely choose it over school or work. But I feel like a free woman, BYU was wonderful and I am so proud of my education, but I'm taking a break! Woohoo!!
So we hit our three year anniversary August 11th, we both graduated, and we went to Arizona. August was a busy month, but super fun!! I also turned 23 last week and feel like I'm getting old.
Well I'm back and hopefully I'll stay on top of things better!

Of course we have more pictures of Collin on this blog than anything. I think it should be called Collin's blog, not Adam and Jenn's.
Here are some pictures of us and Collin after his baby blessing.
Oh yeah, look how much Collin is smiling now. He is even laughing a little. It definitely makes it all worth it when your baby gives you a big grin and a giggle.
Here are some more cute pictures of Collin. Like I said, Collin's Blog. Also, below is a picture of Jenn and Collin with her proud Dad and Grandma.
We will write more later, but I hope you enjoy all the pictures.
