Wow Your Family With Andes Mint Cookies!! #FoodieFriday #Recipe

It's the weekend, and that means baking up some goodies for the family! Don't worry though, this week's FoodieFriday recipe is quick, easy, and delicious!! All you need to make some of the fidgets, mintiest, melt-in-your-mouth cookies ever is a box of cake mix, a bag of Andes mints, and a couple other ingredients you probably already have on hand!

I made these for our family night last week and they were such a hit I just had to share them. The best part is how quick and easy they are. Literally, you can make these from start to finish in about 30 minutes. Mixing, baking, cooling and frosting, all done in under half an hour! So, here we go with the easiest recipe for mint cookies you'll ever find...

1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
1 bag Andes Mints (you'll need about 24 individual mints)
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
2 Eggs

Preheat oven to 350°. Mix eggs, vegetable oil and cake mix until blended. Drop spoonfuls of dough on a cookie sheet. Bake for 6-9 minutes. Be careful not to overtake; because the cookies are so dark, it's easy to burn without even knowing it! Remove cookies to a cooling rack and immediately place an Andes mint on top of each cookie. Let it sit about 5 minutes, then smooth the melted mint with a knife, just like frosting. Enjoy with a glass of cold milk! If you happen to have leftover cookies the next day (not likely, but just in case!) you can warm individual cookies in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.

These have always been a favorite in my house. We used to keep some in a jar on the coffee table until the dog decided to eat them. Now they stay in a cabinet.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
