Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Today I've got an oatmeal cookie recipe to share with you! I love homemade cookies and so do the kiddos. It's a nice surprise after a day at school. I like the idea of oatmeal cookies because oats are good for you. I used dark chocolate chips and walnuts to up the nutritional value.  One third the batch got dried cranberries and white chocolate chips for a twist on the traditional oatmeal cookies. I'm not sure which I like better!...more

Oatmeal Morning

I am snuggled up with my warm bowl of oatmeal, watching the light slowly brighten into the day.  What a peaceful morning.All is quiet in my home, as my family of hunters are out for opening day today, chasing the ever elusive whitetail deer.  This actually gives me a quiet alone-time morning!  I shall call these my “Oatmeal Mornings”!  Doesn’t that sound comforting?  I get to eat warm food, with the fireplace going.  Nice and warm and cozy-while the 6 hunters I have on our land are freezing!  And they think they are having fun…...more

Savory Asian-Inspired Oatmeal

Oatmeal.  Love it or hate it there's no denying oatmeal is here to stay as being a staple health food.  For a long time I struggled figuring out a yummy way to prepare and eat it.  However, my sweet tooth always gave in and I would bombard it with brown sugar, butter, and more. Success for my sweet tooth! Epic fail in the health realm.  Enter my trip to Vegas a few weeks ago to visit my best friend Aiko.  She introduced me to a way to eat oatmeal I had never even thought of and has completely transformed my mornings!...more

Eggless Oatmeal Cookies

It was the night before my son’s day camp began and I had not been to the store in a week. I was looking over the list of things I was supposed to pack for him including a lunch and snacks. The previous week we had had 2 little boys in the house and they had eaten every snack in the place. Goldfish? Gone! Popcorners? An entire bag eaten in one afternoon at the pool. Raspberries? Devoured with pancakes. Graham crackers?...more

Day 8. Wow, time flies when you're having fun!!

Day 8.  Wow, time sure flies when you’re having fun!!  We so enjoyed having the “in-laws” this past week.  As a mother of sons there’s a little fear when you hear “Mom, I’m so in love!!” because you know that you’ve got to eventually meet the family!!!  I finally told my youngest, who was always falling in love, that I was not meeting another extended family until the engagement party!!  Thankfully the next “love of his life” actually became his “forever” and her family is wonderful!!!  My husband and I could actually take vacation with them, even without the k...more
