  1. These are really yummy and very easy to make. I left out the optional nuts because I was making a quick batch of biscuits, and halved the recipe (not needing 48 naughty temptations!) and they were wonderful. Thanks for a yummy recipe that will certainly be made again.
  2. Good classic oatmeal cookie recipe.
  3. These are FABULOUS! Easy to make and they don't last long at all! They get made at my house a LOT! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe! :)
  4. These were absolutely fabulous! I made a double batch for the 25 people in residence where I work and received several complaints from individuals who didn't get any.I used quick oats and walnuts. The next time I want to use regular long-cooking oats because they provide better texture (as if I need to improve upon perfection).
  5. I made these to go on a fishing/houseboat trip and they were wonderful. I was looking for a crispy cookie, so I baked them as suggested. The nuts I used were walnuts.The only complaint I had was that I didn't bring the whole batch! You see, it rained. So, stuck inside a houseboat on rainy days we tend to consume greater quantities of everything--I love rainy days!


I am a 33 year old stay at home mom (right now) of three great kids. I've been married for 16 years to the same great guy and we have a wonderful life together. Our kids are our pride and joy. We have one son and two daughters and they all keep us quite busy at times!! We live in the great state of Alabama and cooking is one of my favorite things. I love to cook for my family and experiment with new recipes. I love good ole country cooking like grandma used to make. I come from a long line of 'great' cooks and have tons of recipes from my mom and grandmothers that I enjoy sharing with my own kids and husband. My favorite cookbooks are those that belonged to my mom and her mom, most of the pages are battered and torn and I'm trying really hard to get these in new pages and on disks for my own two precious girls. Besides cooking, my passion lies in Scrapbooking! I just love scrapbooking and have a fortune invested in it...lol. (All of you scrappers know what I mean) This is one of the best hobbies I know, because I get to take the most important people in my life and compile books about our life together. I would love to do the scrapbooking retreats, but with little ones...it's hard! aw...but one day.....
