cookies and pudding

It was a kitchen day. I ended up baking some goodies...surprise, I'm NEVER in the kitchen. Brinley likes to bake with me, so we decided on Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Matt has been bugging me about making some of these. I found a GREAT recipe and they turned out awesome ( I love experimenting with new recipes and tweaking them to my taste). The recipe came out of an old book from the 70's, i'm sure. I love old recipe book, especially ones that you find at a yard sale or thrift shop, they always have notes written in them. Then I got the hankerin' for some good ol' fashion Bread Pudding. If we go out to eat and it's on the dessert menu, I order it. I love Bread pudding. It has to be one of my favorite desserts, especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a little chocolate drizzled on top. YUM! My Grandma Esther used to make it for us growing up, so it has sentimental qualities to it. I am reminded of her every time I have it. I am so happy she left all of her hand written recipes to me, they are priceless.
So, Brinley and Matt had cookies, I had my puddin'.

You are funny. Sounds yummy, but no WW friendly. Ugh!!! Quinn is only going to work one day a week at the Smart Cookie and work here full time four days. She is very excited about it. Better people, better money and new skills. Miss you.

Thank you thank you for the oatmeal cookies...but, you didn't give me the bread puddin' recipe. Is it a secret??

I have been craving oatmeal cookies for a while and you have convinced me that I need to make them tomorrow. I am not sure if I should thank you or not!!!

I have a few of handwritten recipes from my Great-Grandma. A couple are for different types of pickles. Won't be making them anytime soon, but I love that they are in her handwriting.

Why don't you just give out the recipe's? I don't know that I have the bread pudding, either. Grandma wouldn't care. Love MOM
