unlovely to look at...

This week I am featuring one of my favorite cookie recipes. That in and of itself may not sound very exciting, but understand that it was actually cool enough to turn my oven on the other evening, and that is cause for celebration around here!Cookies make me happy. I don’t know if I have ever met a cookie I didn’t like, although I certainly like some slightly more than others. This recipe I like for 1) its ease, 2) its versatility and 3) the yumminess factor of the finished cookie....more

a giveaway! oatmeal, chocolate, and ginger, oh my!

The delicious aroma of freshly baked cookies wafted through my house last weekend: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip; Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt; and Ginger Molasses. I sampled each dough, as well as the baked cookies, several times before deciding on a favorite. All three varieties were placed into tightly sealed containers, and put in the freezer. My favorites are tucked behind the package of frozen peas. Bwaaaah haha! Hey, I was raised with four siblings, some things are hard to share. ...more

Homemade Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Making these little cookie ice cream sandwiches made me so happy today! My favorite little twins are coming over and I was going to buy one of their favorite desserts, ice cream sandwiches, but decided instead that I would create healthier and tastier ones. So I baked oatmeal cookies made with whole wheat flour and my favorite Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats, stuffed them with good vanilla ice cream, rolled them in semi-sweet chocolate chips and voila!...more

Cake Batter Cookies

I've seen a lot of cake batter-themed treats floating around & I sure do love cake batter!Anyone else love the cake batter & strawberries from Cold Stone? I always want to lick the bowl & beaters whenever making cakes or cookies. The hubby always gets onto me, "there's raw eggs in there!"

My Grandma's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Instead of going to day care growing up, I was blessed to stay with my grandparents during the summers and after school. In that time we had together, they taught me so much. My grandfather taught me what true love and compassion looks like. How a man can be so strong and yet so kind. That a real man carries a pocket knife. How to garden and grow beautiful things. My grandmother set the example in our family to be a strong, educated, successful woman. She patiently taught me how to sew. She taught me to cook and instilled a passion for baking....more
