My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Dark & Milk Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cook Time: 8-10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 36 cookies }

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup splenda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
3 cups old fashioned quaker oats, uncooked
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir with a whisk; set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy.
3. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
4. With your mixer set on low speed, slowly beat in the flour mixture (this way you and you're kitchen won't be covered with it!) Then add oats; and mix well.
5. With a wooden spoon, fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
6. Bake 8-10 mins or until cookies are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then transfer to wire racks to cool.

Enjoy with a glass of organic skim milk! ;-)
