Cookies and Pie

Now that I have my new computer, i am feeling more inclined to keep up with my blogs.  After all, it took my Dell about 5 whole minutes to turn on and the internet to start working.  How fast is my new Mac you ask....it takes about 30 seconds....that's a lot faster!!!  


Anyhoo, I am going to condense two blog posts into one here.  I made cookies, and I also made my famous pie.  I am not much of a cook, but I do enjoy baking.  There is an art to it, an art not involved with cooking.  Not to mention baking is a more take your time thing, and when I cook I feel like its a race-a-round until the food's on the table.


Making Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies...yummy!!!

 I got to use my new mixer for the first time!

Cookies!!!!







My next baking project (not in the same day) was my pie.  You can find this recipe on foodnetwork.com 







This pie is always a big hit with everyone.  Its not super easy to make, and its very time consuming, but its all worth it when you impress everyone with your baking skills.  And you take a big bit of pie and it tastes like heaven in your mouth.  Yummmy heaven :)

Finally got myself a new computer!!!

I have been wanting a MacBook Pro for ages now.  And today my wish finally came true...I got a gift card from my Dad and money from my Mom, and Chris gave me his gift card from my Dad, and I got myself a brand spanking new MacBook Pro!!!

I made sure to document this monumental event :) 







I have been spending this evening learning all the cool new things that my MacBook Pro can do, and my Dell only dreamed of doing :)  I made a slideshow of my dog...I have to say its pretty awesome, and it only took me about 10-15 minutes!!!




I also had some fun with photo booth. Seriously....once you go Mac, you will never go back :)


Looking forward to all the adventures that my Mac will be taking me on...together we can accomplish ANYTHING!!!
