Thought for today: Be a reflection of what you’d like to see in others. If you want love, give love. If you want honesty, give honesty. If you want respect, give respect. You get in return, what you give. (Matt Kennon)

Here’s a delicious and easy cookie recipe and you probably have all the ingredients already – Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies. Ingredients include 3 cups oats, ½ cup crunchy peanut butter, 1 tbsp vanilla extract, 2 cups white sugar, 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, ½ cup milk, ½ cup butter. Bring cocoa, sugar, milk, and butter to boil over medium heat (slowly) and boil gently for 60 seconds. Remove from heat and add oats, peanut butter and vanilla and mix well. Allow to cool for 1 minute and then drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Enjoy.
