Kitchen Sink Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe

Kitchen Sink Oatmeal CookiesI made these cookies on a whim the other night. No recipe, no direction, simply a craving for a toothsome oatmeal cookie with a hint of sweetness. Guess what? They turned out great! Obviously or else you wouldn’t be seeing this post today. I only ran into one problem though. The recipe I concocted wasn’t written down as I went along. So the next morning, I re-tested these Kitchen Sink Oatmeal cookies.

Kitchen Sink Oatmeal CookiesSuccess! Drinks all around! They are buttery, chocolatey and crunchy from the toasted coconut and sunflower seeds. I adore these Kitchen Sink Oatmeal Cookies and i’m positive you will too.

Honey Pear Grilled Cheese Sandwich 2-1Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you Honey Pear Grilled Cheese. It’s a delicious departure from the traditional hum bug boring sandwich. The mild muenster cheese compliments the tangy yellow mustard and sweet honey beautifully if I do say so myself.
