Did you know that love is much like an addiction. 
We as human beings are designed to crave love.
Crazy, right??
Read on my ill informed friends..... 
I was doing some research and ran across this little gem. 
ASAPScience says that the brain of someone 'in love' is chemically similar to that of someone 'on cocaine'. 
Yes. You read that right. 
Can you believe that shit?
 Basically, when you are involved with someone the threshold on your pleasure centers has become lower. Do know what that means?
It means that the gate your mind has constructed to keep you safe has been breached.
BREACHED my friends!!
 So when you are looking at a photo of this person that you "love" your traitorous brain releases a surge of dopamine and norepinephrine.
Let me repeat that.....
 Dopamine and Norepinephrine. The same chemicals that are released when you do COCAINE!
Those lovely, happy, feel good chemicals release even more so if you orgasm with this person. 

You know what else is like cocaine? 

So, when I am feeling glum I am make cookies.'s some cocaine cookies.
The bad thing about baking when you are depressed is that the cookies taste sad.
Honest. Swear to god.
Read 'Like Water for Chocolate' and you will understand.  

I recommend a good moscato before you start and your favorite music to dance to.
Do it. Dance around because no one is watching. Trust me, you will feel AWESOME.

Funny side I picked up sugar, flour, butter and vanilla from the store today both the people in front and behind me asked me if I was baking...
Uh no. I'm making steak.
Seriously. What else would I do with sugar, flour, butter and vanilla?
Anyway, here's the recipe. Bake 'em. Eat 'em in bed.

Broken hearted Sugar Cookies
Makes 5 dozen
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

 In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter.
 Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven.
Cool completely.

Yea, I didn't really frost mine before I ate like 2 dozen.
If I get around to it tomorrow I will frost some and post the pics.
