HAPPY NEW YEAR and a recipe too!

2010! A new year, a new decade and new resolutions!
As I've thought about mine, I've decided to:

  • Seek God first, remember He's in control, trust Him!
  • laugh more ~ which means I'll find more ways to have fun.
  • take life less serious ~ as if I can control the outcome anyway
  • respond slower ~ think first
  • enjoy each day ~ more lunch out with friends, more time with family
  • Enjoy the interests God's given me ~ write, travel, cook... eat healthy... but delicious and exercise!

The Best Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Cookies ~ Healthy and delicious

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 sticks butter/soft
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar - not packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups of oats
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of chopped nuts/optional

Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl. Drop by rounded teaspoons on greased baking cookie sheet. Bake 350 for 8-10 minutes. Wonderful hot from the oven, cool or frozen. ENJOY!
