Paula Deen's Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

THANKS to reader Cynthia for sharing this YUMMY recipe with us.  It looks like her girls REALLY enjoyed making the cookies!! 


  • 1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (18-ounce) box moist chocolate cake mix
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioner's sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and "gooey." Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners' sugar, if desired.

Here are the THREE WINNERS in the Blue Moon Bows Drawing!!

Heather Merritt
Toni Kouns
Amanda Sijansky

The way this will work is a first come first serve basis.  Tell me which bow you'd prefer (flower, pink, flip flop) and if it is still available, it's YOURS!  Be sure to let me know which ones would be second and/or third choice too (just in case). 

You will have until Monday 6/13/11 at 12:00PM EST to FB message me an address for where to send the bow.  If I haven't heard from you by Monday at noon, I will contact the runners-up!




Ok... Cabela's has quite a bit on sale right now... here's a few of the 'good' things...

Crying Kids in Public... Let's Chat...

No...this isn't my angel throwing
a fit in the middle of the mall... :-P
I think it's safe to say that at SOME point in our lives we have ALL rolled our eyes at someone who's kid was throwing a MAJOR tantrum.  I think it's also safe to say that that was probably BEFORE we had kids of our own.  Now, of course, there is ALWAYS an exception to the rule... but for the most part, it is hard to understand what is going on.  Instead of thinking to ourselves, "Man, I bet she is STRESSED out.  I wonder if I could help her out and make a silly face at her kiddo?"  We often think, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  Get that kid under control!"  OR "When I have kids..."  OR  "What that kid needs is..."  I think you all get the idea... Needless to say, it is times like these that we really get into trouble!  We seal our fate.

So, let's hear it.  I KNOW we have ALL had situations where there was a kid throwing a fit in public (surely it wasn't your kid).  What worked?  What DIDN'T??  Do you have any good stories of someone saying something REALLY in appropriate on the rare occasion that it was your angel?  C'mon... let's chat...


Well, we've FINALLY done it!  200 likes on FB!!  YAY!! YAY!!  YAY!!  As a thank you here's a little contest for a SUPER CUTE bow (there will be THREE WINNERS).

**Zoo Atlanta Deal**

Thanks to reader Kerri for sharing this AWESOME tip with us!  My family and I actually JUST visited Zoo Atlanta and had a GREAT time!!  Kerri says go to your local library and check out the Zoo Atlanta DVD and get the receipt when you return it.  If you bring the receipt to the zoo within 7 days (from the date on the receipt), you get 2 adults and 2 kids in for FREE!  So, if you live in the Atlanta area OR if you're going to be visiting there... then this is a super great idea for a FREE FUN FAMILY DAY!! 
(and you CAN pack a picnic lunch to eat inside... to save some more money ;-))

Bedtime! Let's Chat...

So, from the time you bring your sweet angel home you (we) are striving to find a 'new normal'.  Frankly, that is JUST what it is... a 'NEW normal'.  What has been normal to you forEVER is now very VERY different!!  The very beginning is so tough adjusting and figuring everyone out.  But it doesn't take forever (hopefully) to get in some type of daily/nightly routine.  I know that when I was pregnant, I had a friend recommend a book, Baby Wise
