Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Books With Cookies And Milk (25)

Go Back to Bed!
Go Back To Bed! by Ginger Foglesong Guy
Written by:  Ginger Fogelsong Guy
Illustrated by:  James Bernadin

     It is bedtime for Edwin Dupree, but Edwin is not ready to go to sleep.  He makes up excuse after excuse, not to go to bed.  He creeps downstairs and says he is hungry.  There he discovers his mother has been baking, he imagines that the things she has been baking turns into a room full of treats for him to eat.

     Next, he is thirsty and imagines that the living room is transformed into a water park.  There is bobsleeding with penguins when it is too hot, and a hunt for his teddy bear in a forest before he is able to settle down.

     The thought of going to bed is a problem for many children and here is a wonderful tale, with beautiful illustrations, for this tale so well played out. 

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies
(nicely played out recipe)


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 (13 ounce) package Rolo candies
4 squares white chocolate, melted


     Preheat oven to 375F degrees.  Cream together the butter and the sugars.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  Add in vanilla.  Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda and stir into creamed mixture.  Shape a spoonful of dough around each Rolo.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes.  Cool.  Drizzle with the melted chocolate.

Don't Forget The Milk!

This books sounds adorable. I can relate to Edwin. And those cookies. . . I bet they are amazing. Were they in Edwin's imagined room full of treats? Mmmm. ; )

Joanne - Hope you enjoy both! The cookies are easy to make.

Cynthia - This story is definitely a great one for my grandson. He doesn't like going to bed either. No, the cookies are not in his imagined room, but they are in mine. :)
