Here’s an easy recipe for 7 Minute Chocolate Cookies:

7 Minute Chocolate Cookies

I was so happy to stumble on this recipe again after having it in my recipe collection for a large number of years. There are only 6 simple ingredients for these chocolatey cookies, and they bake for just 7 minutes. I made mine into smallish cookies, so the recipe made quite a lot. When I have too many cookies on hand, that tends to be dangerous… so I pop them into a large ziploc baggie and store them in the freezer– where they are seemingly safe from excess cookie munching!

One pot meals are the absolute best! They are so easy and convenient to make (the clean-up is YAY), and they’re low stress too. Who wants to cook a dinner that uses three pots?? I do that once in a while for sure, but on busy days I want EASY.

Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa- a Review Jul 9th 2016, 10:00, by Lori Lange
This is a review of the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa:

Hilton Lake Las Vegas

Some friends of ours hosted a big event at this resort, so my husband and I flew in to Vegas to attend. I had never stayed anywhere but the strip in Vegas… so it was a delightful surprise to find this place! It’s a resort that sits on the edge of a man made lake. And it’s only about 20 minutes from the strip!

Here’s an easy summer salad recipe using fresh corn on the cob: Fresh Corn and Tomato Salad with Balsamic Basil Dressing

Fresh Corn and Tomato Salad with Balsamic Basil Dressing

If you can get your hands on fresh, sweet corn in the summertime, you should consider yourself one lucky person. It’s usually pretty abundant and cheap in high season, and the local farmer’s markets are the best place to find good corn. This recipe celebrates both fresh corn AND tomatoes, so look for some nice, sweet tomatoes too!

Time to grill some more chicken! >> Plum Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs

Plum Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs

If you’re experienced at grilling, then you know that chicken thighs often turn out to be a much better friend of the grill than chicken breasts. Breasts tend to dry out a bit unless they’re pounded out rather thinly, but chicken thighs grill-up quickly and they are usually far more tender and juicy.

Strawberry Mojitos

My husband and I were on a short vacation in Vegas recently. We pretty much just sat by the pool all day long and sipped the resort’s Strawberry Mojitos. I immediately noted that we needed to make them at home!
