These are the cookies to bake when you aren’t sure what you’re craving. They’re packed with M&Ms, oats, butterscotch chips, pecans, and crispy rice cereal.
Now that we have our son, our weekend mornings start a lot earlier than they used to. Our Friday nights often don’t end any earlier than they did when we were childless, which is probably why we have such a hard time waking up the next day. On one such Saturday morning I found myself doing a little channel surfing while I wiped the sleep from my eyes. But what is on television at 7 o’clock on a Saturday morning? Not a lot.
Eventually I landed on the Food Network, where an episode of The Pioneer Woman was already underway. She was making these monster cookies, and not only did she perk me right up, but it took mere moments for me to decide that I would be trying them as soon as possible.
A new chocolate chip cookie you’re sure to love, with a heavy dose of nuttiness from whole wheat and hazelnut flours and chopped hazelnuts.
Sometimes I really struggle with this whole blogging thing. Sure, it’s a lot of fun but it is also a lot of work. And if you really want to be successful at it, the to-do list is about a mile long. Or so it seems.
It can be exhausting and life-consuming. And can I tell you what? Sometimes I just want to bake cookies and share them with my friends.

Not only is the summer heat this year relentless, but it’s trying to destroy my marriage. Okay, not really, but it does have us sleeping in separate bedrooms.
My husband prefers to sleep in the guest bed in the basement where it is cooler, while I stay upstairs in our room because the bed is more comfortable. Before bed we kiss each other goodnight and head our separate ways. It’s terribly unromantic.
But our summer heat wave does have it’s benefits, like ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I’ve done it, and I am not ashamed. I’ve been creating all sorts of fabulous frozen treats this year and these oatmeal cream pie ice cream sandwiches is one that I’m quite fond of.
