Happy Fall

I am having a really hard time wrapping my brain around it being October already! I don't know what happened to September, but I'm enjoying the change in temperatures even if it is making the pool coldish. For some reason, this time of year always makes me think of my college days at the University of Oklahoma. The campus was absolutely beautiful in the fall.


I had a professor my senior year who used to cut us a break every now and then with an answer on a test or something. Along with the heads up, he'd always say "You're gonna want to kiss me full on the lips." It cracked me up every time.


With Fall officially here, a friend texted me a few days ago asking if I have a good Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Heck yeah I do. Since she brought it up I had to make some. They're so good your kids will eat them and so easy you're gonna want to kiss me full on the lips.




1 package of Spice Cake Mix
1 small can of pure pumpkin (or 1/2 a large can)
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix together the cake mix powder and the pumpkin. (You can also use a carrot cake mix if you need to.) It might seem like there's not enough moisture to incorporate the cake mix powder, but keep stirring. It will work. Once you have that mixed up, add the mini chips. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. That part is a little trial and error, but don't over bake. It ruins them.
Seriously, that's it--3 ingredients. Try them out, then come back and tell me if you're thinking about kissing me.

Ah, you're right Brenda! That campus was gorgeous--particularly in the fall. Good thing, because we walked it often. I walked from one side to the other nearly every day due to working in Chem. Eng. and having so many classes in or around Dale Hall.
