How I Made Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies In Simple, Super Easy StepsWritten by Kori Puckett
I was sitting there watching one of my favorite tv shows when a cookie craving hit me. As I watched one of main characters take her chocolate chip cookies off baking sheet, I drooled at prospect of some freshly baked cookies.
I wanted something that was easy, quick, and didn't require me to go out and buy ingredients. So I searched Internet, figuring peanut butter cookies would do trick. I was surprised to find a peanut butter cookie recipe that didn't require flour. In fact, it didn't require many ingredients at all.
My curiousity peaked, I tried it out:
Flourless, 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup sugar (or 3/4 cup, if you prefer) 1 large egg 1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
Combine sugar and egg in mixing bowl, stirring until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix thoroughly. Roll into walnut-sized balls.
Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet(s) at least 2" apart. Flatten with tines of a fork, then turn 90 degrees and use fork again t create cross hatches.
Travel to Deep Space by Sitting at your ComputerWritten by Jesse S. Somer
For many generations various human cultures have had great knowledge about star constellations. However, these days most of so-called modernized breed of human couldn’t tell you much about what’s around us in infinite Universe. The funny thing is, technically we now know more about what’s there than ever before, we’ve even got photos. With Hubble Telescope we now have access to most unbelievable pictures imaginable: galaxies, nebulae and millions of stars close up. You don’t need to buy a book or DVD to see this stuff, just sit down at your computer and let Internet take you on a galactic journey.
A lot of images can be accessed for free just by finding right sites. At http://wires.news.com.au/special/mm/030811-hubble.htm#panup2 you can watch a stream of beautiful visuals that are literally out of this world. The beauty of photos, fact that they are moving, and musical accompaniment makes whole trip quite ethereal. The other great aspect is information scientists have uncovered, mind-blowing ideas like fact that some stars are 60 times brighter than our own sun, or idea that there are thousands of stars in one tiny spot in sky. The concept that galaxies are 150 million light years away-do you know how fast light travels?
For average human who spends their existence in one place working hard everyday to make ends meet, life can become somewhat monotonous and insulated. You forget that there’s a whole world out there. The Universe however might be a random thought that only appears once in a month or even a year. The stars seem so disconnected to our everyday reality, but fact is that we are part of a much bigger picture-the biggest picture of all, infinite space. Maybe if we did focus a bit more ‘outside box’ of our familiar routines we could grasp onto magic and perfection that surrounds us all time, real neighborhood that we belong to.
