marshmallow clouds and award

Cookies from heaven!Not just because they're divine but too many of them and the angels will be that much closer(clogging arteries for eg.).It is NOT a dieters cookie(do dieters even eat cookies?or even any food?...apparantly 5 almonds is considered a complete meal by the slim ones!)I was mindlessly scrolling through some recipes when  this one jumped at me and I just HAD to make it......I changed the recipe a bit(I do have some residue of my college education left...nutrition and all)...the orignal is here
INGRDS
150 gms butter(butter makes things better........trust me)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
3/4 cup whole wheat flour(atta)
3/4 cup oats
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup dark and white chocolate chips
1/4 cup cocoa pdr
1 cup frozen mini marshmallows(yes..frozen..put the marshmallows in the freezer)
METHOD
1.Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy,add the essence.......now add the eggs and beat again.Add the flour...s,oats,cocoa pdr,chips.Beat again.
2.Take a tablespoon of this chocolatey goodness in your hands and put 2-3 marshmallows in the centre,roll in put onto a greased baking tray,get all the cookies ready this way.
3.Put in a preheated oven for 15-20 mins........these will still be a little soft,like gooey little cakes...coz the marshmallows peek out and melt...........YUM!

I wanted to put down my recipes for my kids,they show no interest in learning anything today but they are fond of eating!
2.Which aspect of blogging do you find more interesting?
The interaction with the other bloggers and ofcourse some nonbloggers......it was amazing to realize that there are so many like minded people around,what was really nice was complete strangers extending their hand in friendship....you guys rock.

3.How many hours do you spend on blogging in a week?
I really can't answer that,if the net connection is there,I might be on my laptop for a long..long time...however I live in the hills,where even a slight breeze ensures that we loose the connection,maybe for days together....so thereby my time gets rationed(and I get to do other work!)

Can't tell ....my kids will read this one day!
5. What quality do you most like in yourself and why?

Hmmmm...........nothing really.

Actually everytime I get a new follower or a new like on fb.....I feel thrilled.
8.What is your idea of a perfect breakfast?
Eggs and bread..and a big pot of tea.

Reading.
10.Who is your favorite blogger?
