I dunno, but there's definitely something about that. In anticipation, I planned to post this recipe yesterday. I figured that with the Northeast all snowed in under a "blizzard of the century," you'd all be baking cookies, and would appreciate a new one to try.

These dense and crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies are a party in your mouth! Read on... I can't even tell you how many times I intended to post this recipe. I made it a whole bunch of times.

Chocolate Covered Oatmeal Bars


I have a confession to make. I am terrible at reading and following directions. Take instruction manuals, for example. It isn't uncommon to find the instruction manual to an electronic device I bought a year ago sitting in a drawer, still sealed in it's plastic wrap. Instruction manuals, I reason, are for people of lesser intelligence. It may sound like I am bragging mightily here, so I will make a confession too, to even things out, y'know. I don't know that I can sit and read a manual. I don't have the attention span. Or the patience. And yet I have both the attention span and the patience to apply sprinkles to a chocolate covered pretzel with a pair of tweezers, to make sure it looks … [Read more...]
