The girls at Mission Possible are hosting a whole bevy of link parties on the last Tuesday of the Month, for the rest of the year....WOW! Now you know the dates .... so no reason not to get the project in on time..... no excuses for the teacher like "the dog ate my project" or any of that nonsense :) This last Tuesday in March theme is:
It's A Cinch
Projects that are easy peasy, take just a few minutes, no long tutorials, no complicated directions, or sanding, or pruning, or hauling, or trimming (oops...that's yard work) or moving or storing or any of that nonsense. Now, you are probably asking yourself what the heck does a cookie with a big ol' bite taken out of it, have to do with an easy peasy project. Well....for one thing, I just wanted a chance to show off (again) my latest yard sale find, this fabulous very tall vintage diner counter pastry stand, ------ only this time it's filled with the most scrumptious chocolate chip cookies. Yummo!
Okay........now for the easy peasy part. As a simple and sweet gift for a friend, I filled a (new) peat jiffy growing pot with some of these yummy cookies, wrapped in some cellophane and simply tied with a ribbon. Now how easy is that? Perfect as party favors when filled with jelly beans, chocolate eggs.....whatever your Easter heart desires. Having a special Spring luncheon? How cute would one of these be at each place setting? I bought my pots at Big Lots. There were 22 in a package for just a little bit of money.
Hold on....not done yet! I have one more easy peasy, really really easy peasy project for you. I bought one lone pink hyacinth the other day in one of those not too pretty black plastic containers. I wanted to create a simple Spring vignette on the library table but didn't have a pretty pot in the right size to put it in. Solution: I just cut a strip from a brown paper bag, wrapped it around the plastic, added a little twine and voila....sensational! It has a Spring time earthy quality about it. Took like two minutes and I was done. --------- so there you are...two simple "It's A Cinch" projects. :)
Thank you to the girls at Mission Possible for hosting these fabulous and fun parties.

You thought I wasn't going to post that scrumptious chocolate chip cookie recipe, didn't you?? It's not exactly easy peasy because it takes longer than 20 minutes, ...... but here it is. It has a secret ingredient. I got the fabulous recipe from Tracey at Raggy Girl Vintage blog. Thank You!
- 1 cup salted butter (softened)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3.4 oz package vanilla instant pudding mix
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

Cream together butter and sugar. Add pudding mix and vanilla. Beat in one egg at a time. In a separate bowl, mix together, flour, salt and baking soda. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips until combined. Preheat oven to 350F. Spoon cookie dough onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
