I've baked a lot lately. I wish I could give my daughter a hug, but at least I'm able to send her banana bread and cookies. I used my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, but substituted peanut M & M's for the chocolate chips. 

I was able to wear shorts and a short sleeved shirt again today - I'm spoiled! I ran over to the park, running hard up and down the bridge and down the hill below the bridge (partially in the photo). I ran down the stairs from the top of the bridge once, too. Anyone do stairs as part of a workout? I ran about six miles today and that completes my 40 mile week.


  1. The cookies look great. I am sure you daughter will love them.

  2. Wow, you have some spring time weather, I love that blue sky. Of course, we all look forward to your calorie-free cookie pictures...lucky daughter!

  3. Those cookies look so good! I think I'm gonna make them for the USA/Canada hockey game tonight! I've been thinking about running the bleachers at the hockey rink. Very jealous of your nice weather!!

  4. Those cookies look so yummy - I am going to try them this week. Thanks for sharing the photo of a blue sky and green grass - it has been unusually gray here the past few weeks so I really appreciate the color! Yes, we occasionally do stairs-this is a reminder of our stair workout:
    Hee, hee! Have a great week!

  5. Those cookies look amazing, I'm going to have to check out that recipe! Congrats on your 40 miles this week! I'm really jealous of the shorts, maybe I can wear those again in May? June?? :)

  6. Cookies and shorts in the same post!! :)

  7. Okay, I gotta stop stopping by your blog... for someone that gave up sugar, you are toooooo tempting :). Jk. I wish we could have one day of your nice warm weather!! Nice mileage for the week :) :)!!

  8. Your cookies look delicious!!! I am jealous of your warm weather! I was thrilled to only have to wear 2 layers on top today instead of 3. :)
