Quilt Friends: Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies

If you have all of your ingredients together, this is a 15 minute recipe – but the pleasure of this delectable treat lasts for hours!


1 c. light corn syrup
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
4 1/2 c. Corn Flakes


In a large bowl, measure and place the Corn Flakes.  Then, put the first 3 ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a rolling boil.  Remove from heat and add the vanilla and peanut butter, stirring until all of the peanut butter is melted and the mixture is smoothe.  Then, pour the liquid mixture over the Corn Flakes and stir well with a rubber scraper, coating everything.  Drop by tablespoonful onto parchment paper and allow to cool.

It may just become your next best quilt friend!

      A Sweet Treat from Boca Beth

      I’ve spoke before of some of the wonderful clients that I have.  In this virtual world that I work, it’s not uncommon to find that some folks just have a hard time working with someone who may be 1000 miles away, and with whom they’ve never met. 

      But, there are a few who have learned that being virtual is far less expensive than having an employee, I’m far more productive because I don’t have a bunch of daily office interruptions and I’m far more focused because it’s just me, my computer and the work they send me.

      Boca Beth is one of those sweet people you just want to hug.  Daily.  She’s kind to me, pays me on time (and sometimes ahead of time, if I’m in need of funds) and she is just a joy to work with.

      I think I’ve worked with Beth, in one capacity or another, for about five or six years.  In that time, she’s not only shared her wonderful products with me…I must tell you that my kids (especially the two younger ones) have grown up listening to her sing in Spanish & English – and it’s truly given them a solid foundation of a second language that I could never have done alone.  I used her CDs while homeschooling, too, and every one of the kids would stop what they were doing to come and sing and dance with Boca and Beth.

      And on Monday, I got a sweet surprise in my mailbox, from Ms. Beth and Boca:


      Can you see them?  It’s a Boca Beth Mini-Maraca and some little M&M’s that Beth had printed with her business name and with her image!  Here’s a closer look:


      Don’t that just beat all?!!!  If you want to read more from Boca Beth, visit her website at www.bocabeth.com or visit her blog at www.bocabeth.net.

        Another Stupid Tammy Trick

        I can’t believe Letterman hasn’t called me yet.  Really.  I’m just so much fun around the house!

        Saturday night, as I enjoyed putting together quilt blocks, I did it. 

        Yep, another Stupid Tammy Trick.

        You may remember that my husband put together the perfect cutting table for me?

        See it there in front of the window?  It’s 36″ tall, just right for my height.  It’s an inexpensive 4′ x 8′ folding table we purchased at the men’s toy store (you *know* which orange store I mean), and he added a wonderful piece of 1/2″ plywood to it, and then we secured my cutting mat to that.

        It’s PERFECT!

        Except when it’s not.

        Which would be when I bent down to pick up a scrap of fabric that fell on the floor Saturday night….whacking my head and scraping it as I bent all the way to the floor.


        Oh yeah, another Stupid Tammy Trick.  Right on my upper forehead.  Ouch!

        Letterman?  Circus?  I dunno – but, I obviously live by that motto “no pain no gain”!!!
