Odds and Ends Baking

One of my biggest pet peeves is wasting food. I’ve been known to sit and finish the food my kids leave on their plates, just so it doesn’t end up in the trash. I know there are others like me out there, and for that reason, I wanted to make a post about using the…

Decadent, Triple Chocolate Hot Chocolate

Eggless, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s a cold one here today, and I decided the kids and I would just have a nice, cozy day inside. What better to do on days like that than bake cookies! We opted for these delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They are one of my favourites, since they are large, soft cookies, with chocolate…
