Over the holiday weekend I wanted to do something fun with the kids so we decided to bake some chocolate chip cookies. Then I got to thinking about those Monster Cookie sundaes at Cheddars that I love so much. With that we decided to make our own version of cookie sundaes.

I just scooped the cookie dough out with a standard ice cream scoop and then flattened the ball a little before baking. This worked perfectly to make large cookies for our sundaes. Then we all topped the cookies with vanilla ice cream and whatever toppings we preferred. Everyone got to make a sundae just the way they wanted it.

As you can see these sundaes were huge and most of the kids weren’t able to finish eating them all, but it was a lot of fun making them!

With all of this cooler weather that we’ve been having I’ve been craving soup off and on. I love soup! There are so many different kinds of soup you can enjoy and they are so easy to customize to your taste. One of my favorite soups is a baked potato soup from one of my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks.

This soup is so good and it’s fairly easy to prepare from scratch. There is one thing that I do differently to make this soup come together even quicker. Instead of baking the potatoes in the oven, I “bake” them in my potato bag in the microwave. Potato bags make perfect baked potatoes every time. They also make perfect baked potato soup too!

If you do not own a potato bag you need to get one. They are very inexpensive and definitely worth the price. I do not have any pictures of them right now but I will post some pictures soon. My Aunt makes them and sells them so if any of you need one just let me know. 🙂
