Oatmeal Scotchies

Share

This recipe is an old favorite of mine. I remember it fondly from my childhood. The recipe was on the back of the butterscotch chips bag. They’re a delicious, chewy oatmeal cookie with butterscotch chips.

Three out of four of my boys love these. One claims he doesn’t like butterscotch, so he won’t go near them. […]

I mentioned in my last post how much I loved refrigerator oatmeal, and I wasn’t kidding. I have two batches of this pumpkin spice oatmeal marinating in my refrigerator right now. Tomorrow’s breakfast is going to be good!

In the fall, I make these pumpkin muffins quite a bit for the boys. When I first made […]

It takes mere minutes to throw together if you have the ingredients on hand, and it’s really healthy. I asked one of my sons to try it, and […]

The recipe calls for making much bigger cookies – like the size of the cookies you get at Starbucks […]

It snowed  in NYC today and the boys didn’t have school, so we went sledding in Central Park.   It was lots and lots of fun.   We stayed out until they got cold (and wet).   Our tradition after sledding is to come home and have a piping hot cup of hot chocolate to warm up.   We […]

I haven’t posted in a while because a dear friend was in the hospital for over a month and I was spending a fair amount of time in the ICU waiting room.   He’s much better now, so I’m back to cooking and writing.

I took my son to piano lessons recently and left one batch […]

I came across this one the […]
