To new beginnings.....

Well here goes nothing. I am starting a new "life style change". NO more crash diets or crazy programs. I am doing it my way.....one step at a time! It took me months to get this way then that means it will probably take that long to take it off. There is no such thing as easy weight loss. Plus I am doing this not to lose weight but to get healthier and to enrich my life with a better and long lasting way of life. There are no "dead lines" or a "goal weight" just to live life the best that I can.

Awh remember this cutie. This is Roxy our first dog. Ethan found her on night at work around Christmas time last year. She was a tiny hungry pup and keep following him around while he was fixing a back-flow never one of the schools so he brought her home. Just before we moved out of our apartment on Val Vista we had to find her a new home. We miss her very much but she has a new loving family with a huge yard and another dog to play with. :)

Our First Apartment

I found some pictures of Ethan and mine first Apartment as a married couple. It was over on the corner of Val Vista and Southern here in Mesa Arizona.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (chopped, if needed) macadamia nuts
2 cups white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl then set aside. Beat together the melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, egg yolk and vanilla with a mixer until creamy.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until just mixed. Stir in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips by hand. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased or lined baking sheet
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges look golden brown. Cool on the baking sheet for at least 4-5 minutes (so cookies can set) before moving to a rack. Enjoy.
