Chicken and Waffles

Chicken and waffles is a very common meal around these parts. I can remember the first time I met someone who was not a “local” and had never had chicken and waffles. I was shocked and horrified!

My Own Cookie Recipe

I like to just throw things together when I cook/bake. I saw Martha Stewart just dumping vanilla out once and was truly inspired! I NEVER measure vanilla anymore cause Martha doesn’t do it so I don’t have to! This non-measuring technique can get carried away sometimes. I was so hungry for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and couldn’t find a recipe. SO I just threw a bunch of stuff together and ended up with a DELICIOUS…

I think it is too intimidating, but, REALLY, they are NOT hard to make! I got the recipe from an Amish cookbook, so a full batch makes 5 dozen. I am giving you the half batch recipe and much clearer directions…

Monster Cookies

Yummmmm… I LOVE these cookies! I like to say that they are just about everything you could want in a cookie. Oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips, m&m’s,… This is a modified Amish recipe, so you might want to cut it in half! This would make about 10 dozen cookies! It took FOREVER to make a full batch Saturday night, but hubby ate a lot of dough to help me out! 🙂 Monster Cookies 6 eggs…
