Quite Possibly My Favorite...

I made Monster Cookies this afternoon.  I found a recipe for them at Bake or Break, which differed slightly from the one I had been previously using (which I honestly wasn't all that pleased with).  My eyes will never wander again, looking for a better recipe, as these came out ridiculously delicious.  I remember my aunt Phyllis making Monster cookies when I was a kid and LOVING them.  I always wondered why my mom never made them but, as I was mixing the dough this afternoon, I think I figured out the reason.  My mom realized, in her motherly wisdom, that I could not be controlled around these cookies.  Well, look at them!  Unless you are stricken with a peanut allergy (my condolences...), what would ever keep you back from those?!   (Stop licking the screen, Jenn - that's gross)  Which is why the only time I make these is when I am getting them out of my house and into other people's stomachs as soon as possible.  Though I never can make a batch without having at least one (okay, okay... four).  

On another note...
Does anyone out there know the real name for this flower?  We have them in our yard and really like them.  They get about 5 feet tall, and Justin has coined them "Pinkies," though we are pretty sure that isn't the technical name!

I wasn't licking the screen! OK, so maybe I was, but it was only once.
