Biscoff Chocolate Chip Cookies

I could eat Biscoff Spread right out of the jar.. So creamy and delicious. I often just put a spoonful, or so, of Biscoff and Nutella on a plate with a banana and enjoy. Here are some cookies made from a spread made from cookies. :) That's a beautiful thing. Happy 4th of July.

    Root Beer Float Cookies

    If you like root beer and cookies then here is the recipe for you. They look like chocolate cookies.. but not they are root beer flavor.
    I found this recipe and went to the market and was able to find the extract.
    Well, I wanted to make it again and no luck finding the extract in any of the markets around here. 

    Well, a friend of mine lives in the Baltimore area, which is where the McCormick headquarters is located. He sent me the extract that I needed and Boom, cookies.
    Amazing flavor. So, if you can find the root beer extract give these cookies a try!

    Florida Road Trip

    Over my sons' Easter break we DROVE to Orlando, Florida from Buffalo, New York. Yes, that's right a very long road trip. We drove to Colombia. SC and stayed over night the drove the rest of the way to Orlando. It wasn't that bad of a drive. Total of about 21 hours. We ran into a lot of traffic around Jacksonville and Daytona.  We loved the trip and we loved Florida.

    We had a wonderful time. We went to Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom, Islands of Adventure and Downtown Disney. 


    This the view from where we stayed.
