One of the many reasons I love shopping at Trader Joe’s is because of their frozen food section. They have the most interesting frozen vegetables. Two of my favorites are their sliced peppers and cleaned and sliced leeks. They sell 10 oz. bags of frozen, chopped spinach too, which are perfect for this recipe. For […]
I have been making these cookies for a while now and they’re delicious. I found the recipe on the back of a bag of King Arthur flour. I love the addition of oats to a good chocolate chip cookie.

My sisters know that I love to bake so they periodically send me recipes to try. This was one of them. I noted that the original recipe is from Melissa Clark, a NY Times food columnist whose recipes I have enjoyed in the past, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
