I tried this oatmeal cookie recipe that is more natural/less processed/more healthy. they are pretty dang good if i do say so myself. I found this recipe on the internet (it is a modified recipe of the one found on the container of my Old Irish style oats). I used organic old fashion Irish oats, whole wheat flour, honey (substitute for sugar), canola oil (instead of butter)  lots of yummy spices, dates, and pecans. You can always tweak the recipe, that’s what makes it fun!

here is the recipe from Old Wessex oats (very similar to the ones I made, but these use margarine)

I read about this new cook book on Allure’s Beauty Blog. This sounds like it could be fun!

“Plenty of people think that fashion insiders don’t love food, and that the industry thrives on a steady diet of canapés, champagne, and cigarettes. But the CFDA’s new cookbook The American Fashion Cookbook: 100 Designers’ Best Recipes by Lisa March proves that fashion is inextricably linked to haute cuisine. The book dishes out the best recipes from the likes of Isaac Mizrahi, Carolina Herrera, and Derek Lam—who, by the way, don’t shy away from carbs (Mushroom truffle pasta! Chocolate chip cookies!)—and they’re all accompanied by fashion illustrations by the designers themselves. Slaving over a hot stove has never been so fabulous.”
