Somewhere in there I also found myself kind of bored and craving something sweet (which is not out of the ordinary for me). Ihad some coconut and white chocolate chips I wanted to use up, so I found a recipe for Coconut Oatmeal Cookies at All Recipes (thank goodness for the ingredient search!). I also used my brand new--and might I add, quite lovely--measuring cups that I won from Mrs. Chic's giveaway!
Before - gooey goodness
After - crispy, chewy, and coconutty
I finally upgraded recently from my measly single cooling rack to this new space-saving, 3-tiered rack. (By the way, this recipe made more like 4 dozen, not 2 dozen like it says.)
Anyway, the cookies are very sweet and very dee-licious. Next time I'd probably try them with regular chocolate chips for something different. There's nothing quite like a glass of cold milk with a warm cookie right out of the oven, am I right people? Luke probably won't eat many of them, because he has a "thing" about coconut and its texture (I, on the other hand, love coconut). Did I take this into consideration when I chose the recipe? You betcha. :)
On a completely unrelated note, I'm also excited to say that I think I'll be ready to reveal our made-over guest bedroom this week! Woot woot!
