Happy Birthday Sweet Girl

The photo above was taken 27 years ago ~ right after our daughter was born.
Here she is 24 hours old.
At two years old, she's the sweetest little pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch.
She is married now and on her own, but she will always be our little girl.
Happy Birthday Honey!
Lots of Love,
Mom and Dad

Fall Baking

It's a nippy autumn day here today and I felt like warming up the house by doing some baking.
Our favorite basic cookie around here are Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Over the years I've tried many different recipes for this type of cookie.
Mixed the ingredients all together with a wooden spoon hundreds of time. Using the same wooden spoon I used since I was a newlywed.
And dropped them by evenly spaced rounded tablespoons on a cookie sheet. But throughout all those recipes I've tried, I always come back to the same one.
My secret recipe can be found under the lid of the Quaker Oats carton. I never have to search high and low to find it or try to recall which recipe box or cookbook it is in. I can always rely on Mr. Quaker to keep my favorite recipe safe and sound for me under his hat!
