M and M Cookies

These are by far one of the best cookies I have ever had. You should just try making them and you'll know how good they are too. I adapted it from Picky Palate.

1 cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
1 1/2 cups mini M and Ms
2-3 cups mini chocolate chips(depending on how chocolaty you like it.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter with the sugars until light and fluffy. 
  3. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. 
  4. Add in the flour, pudding mix, salt, baking soda, mini chocolate chips and mini M and Ms. Mix until combined. 
  5. With a medium cookie scoop place one inch apart from each other. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for ten minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy. Makes about 5 dozen.

This is a recipe my mom also used. It is super easy to make for a Sunday dinner. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I adapted it from Mommy's Kitchen.

2 pounds stew meat cut into 1 inch cube

1 packet brown gravy mix
1 packet dry onion soup mix

1 8 oz. container of fresh mushrooms

  1. Layer the meat into a 9x13 inch cake pan.
  2. Layer the fresh mushrooms over the meat.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the dry onion soup mix, brown gravy mix, cream of mushroom soup and water. 
  4. Pour over the meat and mushrooms. 
  5. Cover with tin foil and bake for 3 hours at 300 degrees.
  6. Serve over mashed potatoes, egg noodles, or white rice.
