no bake oatmeal scotchies

well here we are two weeks into the new year and i finally have a new post for you guys.
i've been MIA for the last little while, trying to figure out a balance between this blog, my new writing ventures, and family life.  it's hard. suffice to say this blog has taken a bit of a backseat to everything but hopefully i can get into a rhythm soon and up the food content stat.

in the meantime, i did make you guys some cookies.  okay, well i made some cookies for my family and friends and for the ski hill tomorrow.
but at least i'll share the recipe.
