Two Classics


For my first bake I decided to make two cookies from one of my favorite children’s books, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond

I made two cookie recipes from the book, Snickerdoodles and Peanut Butter Munchies.

       If You Give A Mouse A Cookie is about a boy who meets a mouse and gives him a cookie, but when he gives Mouse (that’s the mouse’s name( real creative, right?)) the cookie, he wants a glass of milk to go with it, and then one thing leads too the next and all of the sudden Mouse has cleaned the house, given himself a haircut and drawn a picture and the boy is running around trying to keep up with him. It’s defently worthy of being a classic, so I just want to say thank you to Laura Numeroff for writing this wonderful book.

Now its time to see if these cookies are any good, first lets make the more complicated Snickerdoodles cookies.

Here’s the recipe:

Don’t eat them yet! We have to bake them! Put those delicious spheres into the oven for 10-15 minutes, I usually do the middle time which is about 12 minutes but you should do whatever you need to do.


Next lets make the more simple Peanut Butter Munchies

I made the cookies and when it was time to shape them they just stuck to my hands! I think I used the wrong type of peanut butter, the peanut butter I used had a lot of oil so the cookies were really sticky so I would recommend using a peanut butter with not a lot of oil.

Now its time for my favorite part, eating them!


See you next week for more delicious sweets!

My ISR Book: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Ship of the Dead



My book is called Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard:The Ship of the Dead. It is about a teenaged boy who died fighting a fire giant and got chosen by a Valkyrie to go to Valhalla. This is the third book in the series so I’m not going to explain the first two books, The Sword of Summer and The Hammer of Thor. In this book, The Ship of the Dead,Magnus goes with his friends Blitzen, Hearthstone, Samantha, Alex, Thomas Jefferson Jr., Mallory, and Halfborn on a big yellow boat they dubbed “The Big Bannana” to stop Loki from sailing on his boat “Naglfar” to start Ragnarok, the end of the worlds. I’m not going to spoil the rest, but it is a very good and funny book and you should definitely read this book.

As The French Say, Bon Apétit!


This is my first blog post! I don’t know who you are or if anyone’s actually reading this, but I’m still going to write this blog! As you know this blog is called “Bela’s Baking Blog” and I will refer to it as BBB. My given name is Isabela, but my friends have nicknamed me “Bela” and it sounds good to have the same first letter, hence “Bela’s Baking Blog” instead of “Isabela’s Baking Blog”. But enough about me, this is a baking blog, not a Bela blog, I will try to bake something at least once a week. And if you have any suggestions then I will gladly take them and bake them. See you soon, As the French say, Bon Appétit!
