I wanted to share this post from my Daughter's Blog today: QUOTE: Thursday, August 28, 2008 "The Nie Recovery Some of you who are obsessive bloggers and blog-readers like myself may have also come across the story of Stephanie and Christian Nielson who were involved in a plane crash on August 16th (read the story here). I don't remember where I first came across the news, but I have since spent hours (yes actual hours of my days) reading about this cute family and their extended family. I have read the old posts on Stephanie's blog, The NieNie Dialogues, and now check her sister's blog, C Jane Enjoy It, daily (and have read all her old posts as well).The accident itself was obviously a tragedy, but I have been so moved reading about how this family has come together to support one another and how many other bloggers are doing what they can to help as well. Although I may not be in a position to donate to their recovery, spreading the word so they receive extra prayers is something I can do!

This week I will be totally consumed with the final wedding plans! Everything is coming together. Thank goodness for wonderful friends! I've been adding your names for the drawing. Thanks for posting. For now I'm just wearing my "Mother of The Bride" hat. It will all be over before I know it.

Martha Stewart features a "Cookie of the Day". I love trying new cookie recipes and this one looks really yummy!Makes about 2 dozen Ingredients: 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup cocoa powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup sugar 1 large egg 1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 12 large marshmallows, cut in half horizontally Chocolate Frosting for Surprise Cookies Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat until well combined. Add reserved flour mixture; mix on low speed until combined. Using a tablespoon or 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies begin to spread and become firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove baking sheets from oven, and place a marshmallow, cut-side down, in the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Return to oven, and continue baking until marshmallows begins to melt, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting. Spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting over each marshmallow, starting in the center and continuing outward until marshmallow is covered.
