Fun Fall Stuff...

Here are a few ideas for all of you Mom's!! Some cute crafts for Fall and some other ideas. I will add more as I get time, right now I have to post this really quick and then start school and then it's off to do errands....ah, a day in the life!

Here you go:

Fall Crafts

My favorite pumpkin bread recipe

and, our favorite (somewhat healthy) cookies:

Julie's Logwoods cookies: (called this because it's Charlie's coworkers most requested cookie) :)

2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 T. (that's Tablespoon) vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup a.p. flour
1/4 tsp.salt
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups coconut
1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla beating after each addition. In a seperate smaller bowl, combine the dry ingredients and slowly add to the creamed mixture. Next, add the coconut, choc. chips and nuts just until combined. Place on ungreased cookie sheets (I line mine with parchment paper) and bake at 35o for app. 12 minutes or until lightly brown.

There you go! Hope someone can use these and enjoy them this Fall! (now, off to start my crazy day!)
