Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies 059

It’s hard to beat a good chocolate chip cookie, but sometimes I love the addition of oatmeal and lots of chopped nuts.  I like to think that adding the oatmeal and nuts make them a little more healthy {smile}.  These cookies are a classic comfort food – they are easy to make and always appreciated.  They freeze well, so make a double batch and stock up.

Praline Snickerdoodles

The days are longer.
Hot weather.
An abundance of fresh fruit.
Spending the day at the pool with my kids.
Family vacations.

And the list could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. However, I live in Colorado and don’t get me wrong we have great summers, but they just seem to be so

Chewy Toffee Almond Bars

Sitting at my computer with a five year trying to help, here are the topics I was given to write about today - shoes, napkins, receiving packages in the mail, summer, and school.

Here is an easy dessert that doesn't take much and is delish! We have a shortbread crust with chewy toffe with coconut and almonds, what's not to love?
