I’ve got a bone to pick with you guys. With summer coming up in full swing, which sunscreen do you guys use? The spray or lotion kind? I’m usually a lotion kind of girl, but we recently bought the aerosol version since it seemed so much easier to apply.
Never again. The bottle lasted my DB and I literally 3 days. Not only that, but it doesn’t quite spread everywhere. We both got burnt with zebra stripes on our backs/arms/legs, despite our efforts of putting it on twice in one afternoon. Ouch. So it’s more expensive, doesn’t last nearly as long, and isn’t quite effective. I definitely won’t be using the aerosol kind anymore. Am I doing something wrong or does it truly suck?
These cookies were wonderful. They were hearty with a good mix of peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate, and had a wonderful texture. They were thick and chewy, while the marshmallows were a nice addition to the mix. My DB even ate these and he HATES oatmeal! He barely noticed that they were even there. This recipe is adapted from Pinch of Yum and lives up to the “monster” name!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar

- 1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Stir together the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.
- Cream butter and both sugars until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla.
- Add the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Mix in the flour mixture until just combined.
- Stir the oats and chips into the dough with a wooden spoon.
- Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets, about 3 inches apart. Push in 4-5 marshmallows into each cookie dough ball. Bake for about 8-10 minutes, until golden.
