Cowboy Cookies

For when regular chocolate chip cookies just won’t cut it… Cowboy cookies elevate chocolate chip cookies to a whole new level with the inclusion of coconut, oats, and pecans.  Every time I bake these cookies I’m at war with myself as to whether this is cookie overkill.  I mean there is, absolutely, nothing wrong with…

Oatmeal Molasses Bread

Oatmeal molasses bread take two – this is the second oatmeal molasses bread recipe I have posted.  I wasn’t happy with the first recipe, so I decided to try something else.  This recipe is less dense and moister then the last recipe with a rich molasses flavor and a chewy oatmeal texture.  It just keeps…
