I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cranberry Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Soft and chewy and studded with dried cranberries and chocolate in every bite! 

2/3 cup butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups oats
1 1 /2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda 
1/2 tsp salt 
1 1/4 cups dried cranberries
2/3 cup chocolate chips (or hearts like these Chipits shapes, recipe from the package)
Coloured sugar for rolling (optional)

Beat butter and sugar together until fluffy, then add the eggs. In a separate bowl combine the oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet in three additions, then add the cranberries and fold in the chocolate.

Take heaping teaspoons and roll into balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, press down slightly and top with another chocolate heart. If you like press the top into some coloured sugar. I used pink...Valentine's Day is coming up 💑
