I am a lover of my husband, adorable children, and last but not least food. I first started baking when I was just a little girl. My mom always had an amazing home-cooked meal on the table and she always encouraged me to help. Much of what I know has come from watching her in the kitchen. I used to love to pretend I owned a restaurant and cook things up for my siblings and their friends. Not much has changed :) Now my sweet husband and kids get to be my taste testers. I love exploring new ingredients and am always looking for the best of the best when it comes to recipes. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do. Through this blog I will share just a few of my favorite things- my passion for child development, my wonderful family, and my love for food :) Happy blogging!

My Version of Grandma Rose's Oatmeal Cookies

Stumbled upon this recipe from my mother's grandmother the other day. I always loved these growing up. Not a huge raisin fan and misplaced a whole container..... so I improvised with delicious results :) Perfect Fall recipe. Enjoy :)

1 c. craisins
2/3 c. water
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 T. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 tsp. cloves
1/3 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. regular oats (not quick oats)
1 c. milk chocolate chips


Bring the craisins and water to a boil and remove from heat. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients, except chocolate chips. Add craisins and water. Mix thoroughly and add chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. Enjoy!
