The key to these yummy, soft sugar cookie bars is not to over mix the batter. I slice them up into 24 cookies straight out of the oven with a pizza cutter. They're always gone by the end of the day!

Get Over the Flu: 5 Ways to Make Your Flu Recovery Faster and Easier

These 5 tips really work!) I should be at work today and not at home witnessing how stupid our dogs are. Pica just yawned and the sound caused Biscuit to bark, which made Pica bark. Now they are both barking hysterically at the glass front door. (Yes, glass front door. It is super obvious that there is no one there.) (Update: UPS just dropped off 2 packages and neither dog had any idea.) Things to Remember to Make Your Flu Recovery Faster and Easier 1. Water tastes gross.
