cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies

Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I went shopping the other day at a little specialty grocery store called, Meiers Meats & Fine Foods, in Highland, Utah.  They always have such fun little treats, cookies, breads, and cute gift ideas…as well as wonderful meats!

I picked up a bag of mini cinnamon chips and just could not wait to try them out in some cookies!  You can buy cinnamon chips at most groceries stores in the baking aisle by the chocolate chips.  

I tried these out on my husband, who was skeptical at first, and then ended up loving them.  Then I tried them out on a granddaughter that thinks there in nothing better than a Snickerdoodle cookie and she also was hooked on these!

This recipe is from On Sugar Mountain and it has the addition of cornstarch, which she says will keep your cookies soft and fresh for a longer time.  I don’t know if that is true because these cookies did not last long enough to find out!  :)Cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies (more…)

I love you more than Easter Eggs

Thursday’s Thought-I Love You More…

I found this fun little saying at Home Goods when we were on our trip in Arizona last week! It just brought a smile to my face when I saw it and I thought of all of my cute little grandkids and it reminded me of them!I love you more than Easter EggsIsn’t this a fun little saying?  

I put it beside one of my fabric bunnies on a table in my entry way.  I love the springy pink color and it just brings a smile to my face every time I walk by and see it.

Do you have any fun spring sayings that make you happy?  I would love to hear them if you want to share!

I have been busy finishing some of the projects that I was working on while we were on vacation, and some of the new ones that I just got!!   I tell myself that I have to hurry and get my everyday work done first and then I can play! :)  We have a ton of yard work to do now, since our weather has been wonderful, so I try to work outside a little bit every day and then I play when I am done!  This is good incentive for me to get my work done fast!  :)

Hope you are having a great Thursday!  Tell someone you love, that you love them more than Easter Eggs today!
