Cookie Extravaganza! White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies


I was trying to come up with a creative name for this cookie that wasn't such a mouthful. I did not come up with one. So these cookies with a long name will stay long-named.

We usually make just plain oatmeal cookies. (Although last year we added chocolate chips). The pig likes his oatmeal cookies to be slightly overbaked, hard, and crunchy, but no one else does. That means the pig ends up eating most of the oatmeal cookies. So we needed a new plan for our oatmeal cookies...

Cookie Extravaganza! S'mores Cookies


Wow.

There are two events worthy of a wow today:
1) These cookies.
2) This is also our 100th blog post!

Quick celebration for #2: yay!!!!

Back to #1: S'mores are one of the best treats ever created.  I really don't think you can go wrong when you combine marmallow, graham cracker, and chocolate.   Unless you combine them with like, asparagus. 

That would definitely be wrong.  Please don't defile chocolate like that. 

Anyway, when you combine s'mores ingredients with cookie ingredients, do you know what happens?  Magic.  It's like cookie-campfire-chocolate-childhood-gooey-delicious-magic.

Once upon a time there was... Crockpot Chicken Enchiladas



We have one more recipe left to share from our October Greek Week, but it's going to take a while to finish. Rather than leave you hanging again, we have a great simple recipe for crockpot chicken enchiladas.

We first discovered these at Samster Mommy - her recipe looked so delicious and easy that it inspired us to give it a try. We combined hers with the one on the enchilada can and some new ideas of our own to create this Castle Farm version. This is a really great weeknight recipe and it makes fantastic leftovers for lunch all week!
