Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies stuffed with Oreo


I use a variation of a recipe from vegweb which is one of my most favorite online vegan/vegetarian recipe sites. Check it out.

Anyway, the recipe I use goes something like this:

Preheat oven to 350-F (175-C) degrees. Prepare baking sheets with baking parchment paper (makes for real easy clean-up!) In the bowl of a food processor or one of those expensive standing mixers (sure wish I had one) blend together 2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups canned or roasted pumpkin, 1 cup vegetable oil, and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Now the original says to sift together the dry ingredients then to add to the wet mixture... but I'm a lazy cook and I've never had a problem with just adding each ingredient and mixing a little with my mixer/food processor. So, add in 4 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon ginger. Mix well. Last add in chopped up dark chocolate or milk chocolate candy bar. Or use chocolate chips - white or dark, whatever. you choose - because you're gonna eat them. Use as much or as little as you like. Omit the chocolate if you will. I think I used about 100 grams worth of milk chocolate.

Next add the Oreos.

Now, the batter is a firm enough to handle dough so you can just spoon it out on the the cookie sheet as is, or you can press an Oreo cookie into the batter or between two pieces of cookie dough. These would even make nice muffins - so you could stick an Oreo into the bottom of a cupcake/muffin tin and then spoon the batter on top and bake accordingly. Be creative!




Bake 12-15 minutes. This recipe sure makes a lot. I usually half it just so I don't find myself getting too fat during the holidays... although, you can share them :)

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals, Hurricane, Utah

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals
692 N 150 W
Hurricane, Utah

By appointment only.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Dena Humphries of Hurricane. She runs Suzy's Closet. It's a non profit Dress Rental in Hurricane. The goal of this non-profit is to provide modest affordable dresses for young women. But, anyone can "rent" a dress - you don't have to be young.

Dena said she had someone going to a Marine ball in Southern California that was older that was borrowing a dress.

The cost to rent dresses is $35 per dress. This covers the cost of dry cleaning therefore, Dena doesn't make anything extra, hence non-profit.

Dena runs this business out of her house, namely out of her living and family rooms.

Why doesn't she call it Dena's Closet? She said because she thought it didn't sound good. She chose the name Suzy because it was cute and similar to her middle name Sue.

How did she get into the business or charity rather?

She got into it becaus…
