simple oatmeal cookies

October 24, 2012

“Well,” I said “I can make oatmeal cookies, but I don’t have a damn thing to put in them. No chocolate chips, no raisins, nothing!” To this, I got a bit of a weird look. “Convenient. I don’t like oatmeal cookies that have stuff in them.” Enough said! I was off to the stand mixer […]

My MO lately has been to buy Oreos while they are on sale. It’s amazing the things you can stick these buggers in! Mash them up, or just sneak a handful or make some cupcakes. It’s nice to have a reserve in the snack drawer, whenever I get the feeling to make something, theres usually […]

Peanut Butter Cookies – revisited

I went back and looked at my previous version of peanut butter cookies, which, while very tasty – were missing one somewhat critical piece of information. What temperature to cook them at. Hmmm. How could I have missed that one? Cooking them for 12 minutes is all very good information to have, but only is […]

I spent most of my day cleaning and doing laundry today. Since we’ve moved I have chosen not to work on the weekend. It’s been so nice to actually enjoy the place I’m living that I have sacrificed making (extra) money in order to sweep the floors, unpack things, make dinner, do dishes… I found […]
