extra chocolate chip cookies

I made some extra cookie dough for the freezer today. I pre-scooped them into cookies so they are ready to go. We sometimes have trouble with frozen cookie dough staying really gooey in the middle, so I tried flattening them a bit, to see if that helps them bake better. We’ll see if it works next time we have a cookie emergency!

easy oatmeal waffles for two

We love making waffles on the weekend. Jon almost always puts butter and syrup on his, but this time we made a ton of fruit to go on top.

I like making extra waffles, but since there are just two of us, I usually make smaller batches. Here is a quick recipe for some yummy oatmeal waffles.

Mix together:

  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 Tbs melted butter
  • Bit of cinnamon

Pour into waffle maker and cook until ready! We made 4 waffles on our waffle maker. Enjoy!

back to sourdough bread

I ended up taking a little hiatus from making sourdough bread. I’ve been working on feeding my starter to make it happy again. This is my first successful little loaf in a while, and it was sooo good. We tried this recipe, which was enough resting and rising time to give a good sourdough taste, but it was low maintenance enough that we didn’t need to check on it all day.
