Summer Fun: Make Weekly Cookies – Recipe: Chocolate Chip Double Doozie Cookies


It has been a busy, fun summer.

After substitute teaching a few times last year, I decided to get my teaching certification.  I enrolled in a program, took 27 online courses, and started studying for my teacher certification exam.  I got up early and stayed up late studying so that I could have fun with the littles during the day.  I had a lot of mommy guilt when I was studying during their waking hours.

On Wednesday, when my brain was at capacity, and I wanted to let my creative energy flow, I decided to bake cookies.  A quick look at my Cookies Board on Pinterest landed me on these cookies by Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.  Given how much I adore Kristan, her blog, and, especially, her growing baby bump, I knew that these cookies would be just what I needed to get me over the studying hump and ready for the exam.


It looks like I was right.  I took the exam on Thursday and received my results on Friday.  All of the hours of hard work paid off, and I passed the exam.  Now I can breathe a sigh of relief and just focus on my littles…and bake many more batches of cookies…for the next 8 weeks of summer break.

If you have never visited Kristan’s blog, now is the perfect time.  Click here for the recipe. While you are there, stick around. I can promise you that the baked yummies, her sense of humor, and/or her adorable baby bump pictures will have you hooked on her sweet blog.

    Even tho the cookies look wonderful I am much more excited about your special news. Congratulations and I am so very happy it was a surprise for me and I didn’t have the stress of knowing when your final test was I knew you could do it. When I called Dr. Burk with the news I wish I could have recorded his reply. He laughed his cheerful chuckle and told me he knew you would pass. I was also happy with the response you told me that Nathan had. I am sure you did see a little of PaPaw that day. He was there guiding you!

    • It makes me so happy that everyone had such a joyful response to my news. It was a truly great day. Three days later, and I am still basking in the glow of it. I loved telling the littles last night, “Guess what?! Momma does not have to study tomorrow. The day is all yours.” Of course, they squealed with delight.

    • Oh, Robyn, your sweet comment just brought a huge smile to my face. Thank you! Watching all of your homeschool adventures was certainly an inspiration. Knowing that we might need to homeschool Ethan one day was one of things that kept me motivated along the way.
