Hershey's Recipe-1940

Here's a great old recipe for cake-like chocolate chip cookies!  I substituted caramel chips in half of the dough of this batch.  Also, you'll notice that I topped some of the cookies with a walnut half.  These are soft cookies that are similar to old-fashioned tea cakes.

Food, Flowers and Beauty of Costa Rica

Here are a few photos from my trip to Costa Rica.  What a beautiful place!  (Also, a couple of plate photos of our food at the resort for my foodie friends!)
 Costa Rica from the air!

A coconut tree.  Also, we had the best bananas, pineapple and limes ever!!

On our day trip to Cocoa Beach, we saw fruit sellers along the road.  Really fresh fruit!
A Banyan tree at Cocoa Beach.  It starts as a fig!
Not sure what these were!  Unusual plant!
Trees on the beach near the resort where we stayed.

OK, are those food photos!

!Pur Vida!  In Costa Rica it means,"Life's what you make of it!"  Love that!  Hope you have a great week!

Butterfinger-Angel Food Dessert

This is a light dessert that our son, Justin, requested for his birthday.  It's fluffy and delicious with a Butterfinger candy bar crunch on top!  He found the recipe on a site called Skinny Points Recipes.
