What to do when you’re feeling totally wrecked: Bake Cookies!

So I was never much good at Maths. But even I wasn’t surprised surprised when my extreme couch potato-ness lead to the actualisation of the following equation

Couch Potato + Baking = Pants that don’t fit anymore.

So I figured I needed to get out of the house more. And thus, I ended up kayaking in the pouring rain for three days. HAH! Bet you didnt see that one coming baby! Needless to say that by the time I got home I was totally wrecked. I felt hungover without any of the benefits that preceed that particular state of being. So, when I was feeling well enough to lift my head off my pillow what did I do return the world to normal? Bake of course.

Now I think there might be something wrong with me because this cookie mix looks super tasty just as it is. What could possibly improve the simple butter cookie?

Hang on! Am I just being super tricky tricky tricky and pretending to glam up these cookies? Or did I just bake plain and simple?

Don’t worry, I didn’t make cookies out of chocolate wrappings…

I made Thumbprint Cookies with Hershey Kisses

Which turned out a little something like this!

Then I used some Freckles (which are awesome by the way)

And they turned out a little like this!

Hungry yet?

And I used some of those Cadbury Carmello Nibbles just to mix things up a bit. Thats just how I roll.

So at the end of this week my pants are no closer to fitting but I am infinitely happier. Who couldn’t be happy after popping these babies? What makes you happy my lovelies?
