Happy Monday y'all! Lol okay maybe Monday isn't the day most people look forward to, but if there's cookies involved people might be more receptive :) My day was full of phone calls and migraines :( but the show must going on right? Since tomorrow is the birthday of this very blog, I have much to do and no time to do it lol. I'm trying to narrow down a special recipe to celebrate this occasion and I'm looking at thousands lol. I also have a sad announcement to make :( A website that originally started as a monthly subscription and ignited my passion to creating in the kitchen is closing in 2 weeks. Grandma's Kitchen has always been an inspiration to me, but she is retiring to spend more time with her grand kids, so I can understand. I will, however, miss all her helpful tips and and suggestions. So naturally I am scouring through every recipe on her site (which is a LOT), and writing down every recipe that sounds to delicious to be lost forever. If you're an enthusiast of all things delicious and love to create them too, head over to the site and take a look. You won't be disappointed ;)
Enough sad news, lets get to something delicious and will bring a smile to any face. As I've mentioned over the last few weeks I've been craving oatmeal cookies, but I wanted to try something new and a little unusual. So I've been searching and searching but never found what I was looking for. That is until I received the email letting me know of grandma's retirement. I should have known to look on her site. I found a recipe that was sort of what I was looking for, and I made a few changes to suit exactly what I had been craving. The original recipe called for white chocolate, but I'm not a big fan of chocolate anyways (I know *gasp*) so I replaced it with pecans. I adjusted some of the ingredient quantities, and also added some spices for a little more dimension. You can find the original recipe, for the next two weeks anyways, on Grandma's website!
