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 (40)

My Mommy Hung the Moon

My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love Story

Written by:  Jamie Lee Curtis
Illustrated by:  Laura Cornell

"My mommy hung the moon.

She tied it with string.
My mommy's good at EVERYTHING"

     I love this story! A great book about unconditional love between a mother and a child. It is well-written and flows. There is just enough silliness for both mom and child. The illustrations are great. A great read for the end of the day. This would also be a nice gift for the Mom-to-be.



1 (18.25-ounce) package white cake mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
8 ounces (half a 16-ounce container) chocolate frosting
8 ounces (half a 16-ounce container) vanilla frosting


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray.

2.In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs; mix well. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until firm.

3.Remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Frost half of the flat side of each cookie with vanilla frosting and the other half with chocolate frosting. Serve, or cover loosely until ready to serve.

Don't Forget The Milk!

Love the sidebar story about your Mom. My mother passed in March of this year. I remember when my 2nd son was born feeling a twinge of sadness that my father (who had passed away at the age of 47 some years earlier) would not get to see his grandchildren. But then, I had this incredibly strong feeling in the delivery room that my father WAS there...along with /his/ father.

Joanne - I loved the book!

KentuckyGal - I'm so sorry for your loss. I truly believe that they come to see us when we need them. I'm sure they were both there. Hugs, Maeve
