Fall Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

When you make this recipe, be ready for your home to be filled with the true smells of fall; sugar and spice and everything nice.  It is beyond fabulous!

Now that the sweet fall chill is in the air, it’s time for some cookie baking!  I love this oatmeal cookie recipe because of my super sweet ingredient surprise; butterscotch.  Now, I recognize that “Butterscotch” doesn’t exactly make most people begin salivating, but the right amount in the right recipe can be magical!  It is the perfect surprise ingredient.  If you are simply not a butterscotch person, then feel free to get creative with your add-in items and switch it up with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, nuts, raisins, or even cinnamon chips.  Since it is fall, I also sprinkled in a little splash of fall colors with edible confetti leaves.  This cookie is an easy bake, full of fall love and will be enjoyed by everyone.  My kids and husband approve!

But First, Coffee | Featuring EkoBrew

This post is sponsored by Walmart and EkoBrew.  All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. @walmart #ekobrew

If you are anything like me, a good cup of brew is NEEDED to start your day off right.  Now that fall has arrived, I have been enjoying the cooler weather, which also means I finally get to transition my morning cup of iced coffee to a nice steamy HOT cup of coffee.  There is truly nothing better than waking up to the amazing smell of a fresh brewed cup of coffee in your home; But First, Coffee.

Running behind is my normal morning phenomanon.  Funny how having kids does this – I used to be organized and on time!  Thankfully my morning brew is done in my convenient single serving Keurig machine, so it is reliable and fast.  I need a speedy constant in my life and Keurig is just that… there is however a slight problem, I dislike buying the expensive and non ecofriendly K-cups, and I can never seem to find a flavor that I enjoy.  I like to buy fun flavored bags of coffee, especially during the holidays, and I am always bummed that to enjoy them I have to bring out the bulky coffee pot.  Thankfully I have found a solution to this problem: Ekobrew.

My Secret Recipe To The Perfect Cookie | 9 Baking Tips & Tricks

If I have to be honest, a chocolate chip cookie made from scratch… has got to be one of my favorite snacks in the world!  When I have the time, I truly enjoy baking them and I am always prepared for the opportunity by keeping the ingredients on hand and ready to go at moments notice.  Getting to use my KitchenAid mixer, licking the bowl and the amazing smell that fills my home as they are baking… priceless.  I wasn’t raised with a secret family recipe that was passed down from generation to generation, but I was raised on the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe that can be conveniently found on the back of a bag of chocolate chips… and to this day it is still my favorite!  The recipe is convenient, simple and easy to follow and DELICIOUS!

You Are My JAM | Mason Jar Strawberry Jam

I am a berry loving girl so I usually find every way possible to add fruit to the meals I make.

While we were on vacation in Idaho we stayed with friends and they introduced us to homemade biscuits and homemade strawberry jam… I WAS IN HEAVEN!  It was at that moment that I realized that homemade jam… is my JAM!  The day after we got home from Idaho I bought all of the needed ingredients and started making my own jam… and ever since we put jam on just about everything.  I will even go so far as to plan our meals around ways to serve it.  Obsessed much? Sorry not sorry!

Here is a simple recipe for making jam and believe me it is well worth it!  Surprise your loved ones with homemade jam and they will be so impressed that they may even offer to do the dishes!?  The amazing taste will make them believe you slaved away in the kitchen all day, when little do they know, it only took you 20 minutes to make and it didn’t even require stove top cooking!  Now that is my kinda jam!
