7 Simple Steps to Snap, Crack and Pop Turkey burgers

Little Mister is still teething, bless his heart. In between bouts of being smiley, we have long periods of just screaming.

Quick, Easy Cooking – Peanut Butter Cookies

No Mixers involved; just bang it all into a bowl, stir it together, and fling it in the oven. I can’t remember my source for this recipe, so I can only apologise.
