Peanut Butter Oatmeal Squares

I love oatmeal…. and peanut butter for that matter… so I thought, why not combine the two into a delicious lunch box snack.  This makes for a mostly healthy, moist square you are sure to enjoy!

You could add chocolate chips, or nuts, or raisins, or whatever you like to these squares but I just left them as is.

PB & Chocolate Cereal Bars

I am back!  After almost 3 days with no power thanks to the wind storm we had, we have power and I am back to posting!

This is how we spent Sunday lol…. other than sitting around reading or anything else, we ended up cleaning up all the debris from the storm and having a big burn to get rid of it!


Yesterday I got back to the kitchen and made a few things to post!  One being these PB & Chocolate Cereal Bars!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

This week I when I was doing my “lunch box snacks” baking I decided to make some Peanut Oatmeal cookies along with S’mores Squares and a different kind of square based on the usual crispy rice square recipe but with a different cereal. I will post this later in the week too!

S’mores Squares #2

I finally found the other recipe I had for a S’mores square this week. After Chris going on and on about how much he liked the original S’mores Squares I made last week I kept searching for the other recipe I used to make and thankfully found it!

Fudgy Chocolate Brownies

I noticed yesterday that I was running out of lunch snacks!  Oh no!  Even though I pretty much strap a feed bag on for their lunch boxes I still like to send them full.  Dillon is always telling me there is no way he can eat all of it in one night, but I am one of those people with an innate need to feed people and they are my lucky victims/recipients lol!

So here is my favourite chocolate brownies recipe!

My Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This is the recipe for Chocolate chip cookies that I have used for years.  I use it for my Cookie Grams (which I will try to do a post about in the next few weeks) and just plain old chocolate chip cookies.  This recipe is so easy that even Chris can make it lol…. sorry Chris!

Each year I make about 24 Cookie Grams for my mother-in-law for her clients.  One year we made it a family event, assembly line sort of thing.  Chris was in charge of actually making the cookie dough in my KitchenAid.  He now thinks he is not only a Chocolate chip cookie pro, but also a KitchenAid whiz lol! At least he helped, right?

Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup with Quinoa and Vegetables

As I mentioned in an earlier post, someone I know isn’t feeling very well. I offered to make a few different kinds of soup to hopefully help them feel better.  What is better when you are feeling under the weather than a nice hot bowl of homemade soup?

I am adding quinoa to this chicken noodle soup for the protein alone.  Just a little boost when you aren’t feeling up to par.

This will give my friend some homemade soup, for the freezer, for whenever they feel like eating some.

I am making this Crock pot version of Chicken Noodle Soup, an Italian Lentil soup and then my absolute favourite, I don’t feel well soup…. Potato soup with dill and cream cheese.  I will post the recipes for the other two as I make them.
