Gooey butter cookies

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

The girl (with a little help from me) baked something amazing today. A few weeks ago I found a website,, which is a baking/cooking site. All the stuff there looked incredible and there are a lot of things I want to try some time. The first thing was gooey butter cookies. It’s pretty much just yellow cake mix, cream cheese and egg, the balls rolled in powdered sugar. I think ours were in the oven a little too long, because they weren’t particularly gooey, but super delicious anyway! I’m definitely saving this recipe for another time.

Right now I’m actually working. Our guests, that didn’t just stay for the weekend, but for the whole week are out for dinner. Well, not the kids, but all the grownups went out for sushi. Can’t really say it’s hard working late nights. The guests kids went to sleep before the parents left because they are so young and all I had to do with my kids was entertain them for 45 minutes and then read for the boy until the lights had to go out at 9pm. So now I’m just listening extra carefully for sounds on the baby monitor and doing what I usually do, reading and/or watching Two and a Half Men.
