Toasted oatmeal pecan and chocolate cookies

cookies close up

Today I am blogging and baking these oatmeal pecan and chocolate cookies. The pecans are being toasted in the oven, the chocolate chips are open to snack on with a cup of tea, and the kitchenaid is at the ready.

Because today a man came to repair my washing machine. Seeing my broken frontloader up against the wall, the man-who-works-with-washing-machines-for-a-living said he had hurt his back and could not move the washing machine…. if I could be so kind. (more…)

Best Christmas Cookie Round upYou’re right. You should. Sure, some people are on top of these things weeks ago. But they’re also the same people who order things online in advance. Unlike me who is puzzled that nothing I want to buy online today as a Christmas gift will arrive on time.

Therefore I’ve rounded up some Christmas cookies for you, and also ranked them in order of “easy-to-make” to “really-you’re-going-try-that-right-now?” (more…)
