After 15 years of looking for my favourite oatmeal cookie recipe, I found it. Where you ask? In a cookbook I owned for the last 12 years!! *sigh* I have used this book for soup and dessert and bread and missed the cookie section completely .

So I made it and it was as lovely as I remembered.

Isn't it great being able to make a recipe from long ago, CakePoet? It's like tasting memories. I get all smiley when I make my Mom's banana nut bread recipe. Reminds me of growing up.


My bake today was only a box mix, but a doctored up version. I made Pillsbury pumpkin quick bread and added walnuts to the mix. After it was baked, I remembered that I had pistachios in the pantry. I bet it would have been good with pistachios...

It is silly how simple this recipe is, it just 200 gram butter, 200 gram sugar, 400 gram rolled oats but it is the method that makes a difference, you need to grind the mixture to get the right texture.

A batch of onion bagels is on the agenda for today.

Forgot to tell you - I made another loaf of fougasse yesterday. This one was stuffed with red peppers I bought at our farmers market over the weekend and roasted. I topped it with Penzeys Frozen Pizza Seasoning and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Really good.

We were out of bread. As in none. My Dad the Breadman would have been mortified! I was too lazy to get dressed in "out in public" clothes, so I baked a loaf of whole wheat bread. Once in gear, I decided it would be a good idea to use up the very ripe bananas, too. I mixed up two loaves of banana nut bread while the wheat bread was baking - one loaf to eat, one to freeze for later.

We knocked off about 1/2 of the wheat bread today. I guess I'll bake another loaf of bread tomorrow?
