This week’s recipes are going to be pretty simple. My family had a garage sale this weekend and I am still trying to get back on schedule. Unfortunately, the laundry and house cleaning chores didn’t stop just because I had other things to do on Saturday, although that would have been nice wouldn’t it? Sometimes I need to remind myself that things don’t always need to be perfect and it’s okay to make a semi homemade dinner, or even order out once in a while. As mother’s I think we easily feel guilty if we don’t make the best meals, or have the most creative ideas with our children. This week I am not going to stress about how unorganized things may be because I was thrown off of my schedule, instead I am going to have fun with my children and slowly catch up. Good thing I have some quick, homemade desserts up my sleeve for those days when we are all craving a little something sweet!
I seem to be stuck on peanut butter and chocolate flavors lately, so I decided to make some chewy cookies that included those ingredients. I like simple peanut butter cookie recipes, but sometimes I am in the mood for something with a little more flavor- and chocolate! While a crisp peanut butter cookie is a nice treat, peanut butter and chocolate blended together always makes me happy and satisfies my sweet tooth. These Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are great for dessert, a snack or even a nice treat for a family friend. These can also be frozen, which is nice because the children love these as an after school snack. I must admit that I have been known to even pair one these chewy cookies with my morning coffee for a sweet start to the day:) What’s your family’s favorite homemade cookie?
