A new recipe and Noah's new...

Doesn't this look divine?
It's a chocolate chip cookie pie. Yummo!

I haven't exactly made it myself, but I'm
gonna try it out pretty soon.
I love to look around on
The site has so many amazing dessert creations!
You want the recipe?
Thought you might.

Ok. So you need:
1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell*
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped pecans (yuck... won't be in mine!)
Serve with ice cream (optional)
  • Preheat oven 325 degrees F.
  • Beat eggs in large mixer bowl on high until foamy.
  • Beat in flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat in butter.
  • Stir in morsels and nuts and spoon into pie shell.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm.
* If using frozen pie shell, use deep dish style and thaw completely. Bake on baking sheet and increase baking time slightly.

Pretty easy, huh.


Ok guess what Noah got?! A brand new... seat!

We finally decided it was time for a new one. Noah has completely grown out of the one we have been using for the past year--the one we used to bring him home from the hospital. So Josh, Noah, and I made a little trip to Babies-R-Us and began our search for a new car seat. As we walked down the car seat aisle looking at the different ones we came across this one from Graco. We thought it looked really nice, so we decided to let Noah be the judge. Josh placed Noah in the carseat, and as soon as he did Noah got this big smile on his face and started laughing. It was hilarious! He checked everything out, and while doing so, he decided he liked the cup holder quite a bit.

Of course we forgot the 15% off coupon at home, but we wanted to read reviews on it anyway, so it all worked out in the end.

Anyway, Noah loves his new car seat. We haven't actually put it in the car yet, but I'm thinking from the looks of it we might have to buy one for the house and one for the car. Apparently, it's a pretty nice recliner to relax and watch Baby Einstein!

Have a great evening! Thank goodness it's the weekend, right?

Love the picture of Noah in his new seat! Why does it have to make them look so much older???
