welcome to our {new} blog

I love it when people drop in on us at our home. Unfortunately, it is one of our cultural practices that is fading into oblivion. When our doorbell rings unexpectedly, I usually assume that it is a delivery from FedEx or UPS. But when I open the door and see a familiar, smiling face I am thrilled and feel honored.

Thanks for dropping in on our FamilyMatters blog. We are honored. I wish I could offer you a cup of coffee and a warm chocolate chip cookie (two of my favorite treats to share). Obviously, you care about your family and so do we. Families are made up of people and people are the only earthly endeavor we can take to heaven with us. Sit back and enjoy adding to your knowledge of how to bring the best out of those you love the most. We also want this to be a place where you can drop in to be encouraged for every age and stage of life. We’ll share with you things we have learned along the way of 38 years of marriage and 30 years of parenting and most recently grandparenting. We’re glad you stopped by and we hope you’ll visit often because your family matters to us!

Darcy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients 1 c. butter 1 c. brown sugar ½ c. white sugar 1 T. vanilla (I like the flavor of Mexican vanilla) 2 eggs 1 t. salt 1 t. baking soda 3 cups of flour 12 oz. of real chocolate chips (I like Ghirardelli chips when I can get them) Directions Cream room temperature butter with sugars. Add vanilla and beaten eggs. Blend salt and baking soda with flour and add to wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips and stir just enough to mix. Drop by teaspoons onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. If they last long enough, lift them onto a cooling rack and enjoy with a friend if you have one near by. Otherwise, they’re all yours!
