 I’ve lived here 16 years. Today was the coldest day, ever. I know I like to use the word EVER, like this EVER – By itself, for emphasis. But it really was the coldest day.
Good day to stay in and look at the snow drifting on the street… you know when it looks just like dry ice, after you pour liquid over the top?? Which btw, reminded me of something that happened a little while back, when I heard the funniest thing. EVER. I was sitting in church, in a meeting for young women. We were celebrating one of our young women who just turned 18. Jan, our leader in charge read off a nice little tribute to Abby, who is the cutest 18 year old girl, ever. Then Abby said “Yay! Now I can buy dried ice!” Who says that??!!
So funny.
Anyway. Today was a good day to stay in and make cookies. Do the laundry. Eat cookies. Change sheets, Do more laundry. Eat more cookies. Have hot cocoa. Wear my hat, that Melinda knit for me (in one day). Wear my hat to Costco, and leave it on the whole time I shopped. Have Jake look at me in Costco and say “Are you going to take that hat off??”

Found this recipe and noticed it had 5 stars and over 800 (mostly positive) reviews on

You’re going to love these. The kosher salt gives them a really amazing salty-sweet flavor. No spices to take away from the pure oatmeal-raisin base.
Best new favorite chewy oatmeal raisin cookie.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raisins, I like golden raisins best


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until fluffy. Place flour, baking soda, baking powder and kosher salt in bowl with wet ingredients. Mix just until incorporated. Add 3 cups oats, mix with large spoon. Fold in raisins.
  • Drop dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet, or sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
  • You may also use a convection setting and bake cookies at 375 for about 7 minutes.


– I scooped these out in small one inch balls and baked about 12 per sheet.-The recipe called for 1 1/2 cups of raisins, I thought 1 cup was just right.
