Cool videos

Hey guys,

My mom and I have been making some POM (Power of Moms) videos on YouTube. My mom films, and I edit. Here's one of them:

Making Chores Fun

Chores are boring, and games are fun. If you put them together, they are both fun. Let's say you do not want to do your chore. You could pretend you're on a spaceship or on Mars, or you could set the timer. My favorite way is to set the timer so you can finish faster. You could try these ways to make work more fun.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies :D

Here is an interesting chocolate chip cookie recipe! I hope you enjoy it!


2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup tahini (see bottom of page)
4 Tb. butter (I did half applesauce half butter)
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg white
1 Tb. vanilla extract
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of walnuts (optional)

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: In a medium sized bowl, mix oats, wheat flour, white flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. (Set aside)
Step 3: In a mixer, combine tahini and butter until they make a paste. Add in brown and white sugar. Make sure that they are well combined. Beat in egg, egg white, and vanilla.
Step 4: Mix in the oat/flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Step 5: This recipe makes approximately 45 cookies--you may want to save some batter or cook them in separate batches. Get about a tablespoon of batter and press it onto a cookie sheet.
Step 6: Bake the cookies for 16 minutes or until they are golden brown. Let them cool before eating. :D

Tahini is a MUST. It is a sesame seed paste and smells like peanut butter. It can be found at natural food stores and in some grocery stores. It may need to be stirred when you first open it, but it makes the cookies taste amazing.

I found the recipe HERE.

Creativity the Perrys are Having

By: Grace Perry
Through the summer and new school year, the Perry kids have gotten into some creativity. First off, here is Ethan, Spencer, and I being the "cooks" at our house. (We just served plastic food.) At our cousins house, we dressed up like Halloween-weird-awkward people. The only problem was that the basement was cold and the costumes were WAY to tight. (It was so much fun.)
I guess Ethan found a way to play with Spiderman...

Alia always makes these. Here is my favorite one of all. Here is how you make them:
1. Wash your hands.
2. Get the right amount of strawberries you want to serve.
3. Cut a hole at the top and place a gummy worm inside.
4. Put 2 chocolate chips on for the eyes.
Bonus: Put a handful of cheese in the middle!!
Enjoy Power of Kids!!
