Hi. My name's Carol, and I love food. No, you don't understand. I love food. If I were on the Titanic, I'd be in the galley (kitchen) eating up the chocolate pudding and the roasted quail. I go to most events, activities and parties just for the food. The company and the conversation are secondary. Here, I'll try to document everything that goes into my mouth. Aren't we excited? Oh, hey, are you gonna eat that?

[C]raisin pecan oatmeal cookies
I've been sitting on an Ina Garten oatmeal cookie recipe for a little over a week. It's still hard not having a venue and a mass of people to bake for, like I used to. Good thing my husband can eat cookies every day, after every meal, especially when he comes home late at night from a gig. These are good and easy, Garten's twist with toasted pecans and raisins.
Eddie had offered to fetch me the ingredients from my list, but he'd forgotten the raisins, so I made do with a ton of Craisins -- a very underrated snack.
Every time I make oatmeal or peanut butter cookies, I think of my dad (who was a fantastic cook and weighed over 500 pounds) making me breakfast, and grade school. They kinda go hand in hand. Well, the cookies are in my cookie jar now, waiting for you to have some. Enjoy with lots of milk. (Or, if you're like my son James, straight out of the mixing bowl raw.)
