The Best Things in Life are Free...except chocolate and Hello Kitty!
Some things in life like chocolate and Hello Kitty are worth the price tag, don’t you think? Seriously, after a visit today to the Japanese American National Museum, I am in awe of how the universe rewards those who strive to bring goodness into our world. (Apak - Aaron and Ayumi Piland - by the way, are the inspired artists behind the above Inner Kitty.)
Shintaro Tsuji, the man responsible for the worldwide explosion of Hello Kitty, drew me to his photo with his kind smile. His expression was one of sweet contentment. (Of course, life would be wonderful as a billionaire!) Research revealed a man who has overcome spirit-breaking experiences. (Just a few examples: Tsuji-san lost his mother at age 10 to leukemia. Tsuji-san was bullied by his remaining relatives. He witnessed the suicide of his commanding officer upon Japan's surrender in 1945.) Instead of growing cynical and embittered, Shintaro Tsuji dedicated himself to delivering happiness and comfort.

Lightly whisk eggs in a large bowl. (One at a time so you can easily fetch out any egg shells.) Pour in the cake mix, coconut oil and espresso. Blend well with an electric mixer. Stir in the toffee bits.

Scoop tablespoons of the dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes.
