Peanut Butter Cookies


I treated myself to some delicious cookies yesterday.

They were Peanut Butter Cookies, to be more precise.

I ate many, to be even more precise… pure bliss!


These cookies are unbelievably easy to make. Even kids can help and have a great time.

Both smooth peanut butter or the crunchy one can be used, the choice is yours.

The result will be just irresistible!



Here’s what you need.

You can replace 1/2 cup of the white sugar with its brown alternative if you can find it in your pantry or if you are a better recipe planner than me…




1. To make the cookies, first beat the butter until creamy, about 2 minutes.

2. Add the sugar, beat for 2 more minutes.

Random Joy

I have a few simple things which has made me happy recently that I need to show you.

It’s my random joy!

For life has been quite busy around here as of late, the list is a little brief, yet happy, happy, happy… just like the trip to the nature shown above.

Happy Little Suns ~ Tutorial


The Happy Little Suns are back… this time with a picture tutorial.

I’d say that it’s quite simple to make them, the whole process requires only basic sewing and crocheting skills.



These are the needed supplies.

Felt: since each sun consists of two circles which measure about 4.2 inches (10.5 cm) in diameter, to make one sun you will need a piece of felt which measures about 9 x 5 inches (22 x 12 cm). Of course, you can create suns that will be larger or smaller than that.

Yarn: I have used sport weight yarn in beige color to embroider the face and worsted weight yarn in yellow color to crochet the border.

Crochet hook: G (4 mm).

Pen/marker, scissors, yarn needle.

A bowl:  I used one that measures about 4.2 inches (10.5 cm) in diameter. It is used to trace the edges of the sun.

Polyfill/toy stuffing: … pssst, I use cheap pillows from IKEA to get my polyfill. They cost only about $1 and they have tons of polyfill inside. Okay, maybe not tons, but it’s still a LOT!


1. To begin, place the bowl upside-down on the piece of felt and trace the edges of the bowl with the marker.

Repeat to mark one more circle.

Individual Peanut Butter Pies


This might easily be the most sinful treat I have ever made in my whole life.

Just imagine the luscious layers of crushed Oreo cookies, peanut butter and whipped cream mixture… with some additional whipped cream and chocolate on top. Magic!

Needles to say that here, in our house, we enjoyed this dessert a lot. In between the delighted oohs and aahs we managed to agree that we are allowing ourselves to have something similar in not less than a year. The calories and the sin, you know.

And you know what? We can’t wait until that day comes…


Here’s what’s needed for the magic to happen.




1. First, the Oreos… try to resist.

I did not.
