There is an easter egg competition at work today. This is my entry. I call it ‘Eggs-terminate’.
Woke up this morning to find that I had 30 followers. What a nice surprise. I hope that you all continue to enjoy my reviews and random other little things!
Baking peanut butter cookies with Spinosaurus
The other day Spinosaurus dropped by for a visit. It was a great surprise to see him because he’s usually so busy, he doesn’t have time to hang out here the way he used to. I was just about to make some peanut butter cookies and he asked if he could help. As you can see, he was a great assistant! Hopefully he will come by more often and help with other projects in the kitchen and garden.
These peanut butter cookies are slightly chewy and coated in a thin layer of sugar, perfect for dunking in a glass of milk or your morning espresso. I’ve been baking them forever, but yesterday I realized it is more fun to make them with a friend. A recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Beat peanut butter and butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Cover and refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough in 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies by making crisscross marks with fork tines or dinosaur footprint, dipping utensil in sugar between flattening each cookie. Bake about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks. Cool. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

1. A flavour of icecream you would wish upon your enemies?
Neopolitan. They would face the endless disappointment that I had already eaten the chocolate and strawberry stripes out of every carton that they opened
2. Cartoons or anime?
Depends entirely on the series - there are good and bad of each.
3. Any bad habits?
I chew pens to death. I keep having to buy ones with metal casing so I don’t destroy them before they wear out.
4. Have you ever done/seen/tried something you thought you’d never like, but now love?
I didn’t expect to like The Hunger Games but I do. Though I would be the first to admit that it does have problems…

I don’t really do fandoms but I’ve recently discovered SwordArt Online and that’s pretty awesome.
8. If everything you ate from this point onwards suddenly tasted the same, what would you like it to taste like?
9. What is your zombie plan? (everyone has a zombie plan!)
For voodoo zombies, I’d draw a circle of salt around the fridge and wait it out. For plague zombies, I’d probably be eaten.

To get my novel published

Before I begin this review, I think I should get the warning out of the way. This series is violent. Incredibly violent. If you are in any way squeamish or easily frightened, these books are not fo…
