I know... I know.....

I have been gone almost the whole month of January!! I seriously don't even know how it is almost February practically!! Pure craziness!! Work has kept me really busy as well as some client albums that I have been trying to find time for. We have been meeting up with lots of friends here and have had a couple of date nights even! One of the funnest nights yet was a night out with our sweet neighbors Michelle and Dave... we had a blast at Siena where the food and atmosphere is awesome! $5 martinis and reaaaaaaaaally good food!! So yummy!!
Then we had some friends over and my friend Ellory made these totally scrumptious cookie bars (which she left at my house and they were devoured within the weekend.... not so good for the diet). She swears these are fat free IF you eat them with coffee..... whatever... I wish that were true!! Anyways... so simple to make and take to someones house. But be prepared to gain a few pounds.
INGREDIENTS
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2cup sugar
1 egg
1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookies

DIRECTIONS
1.Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth.
2.In ungreased, 9- or 8-inch square pan, break up half of cookie dough. With floured fingers, press dough evenly in bottom of pan to form crust. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough. Crumble and sprinkle remaining half of dough over cream cheese mixture.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until chilled. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store in refrigerator.
So enjoy the recipe for now and when I am at home, I will upload some new pics of the boys and HOPEFULLY have some crafty stuff to show you guys!! See you all soon!
