The Best Oatmeal Cookies!😋

I made a batch of these Crispy Oatmeal Cookies a couple of days ago and they are SO good.

https://m.wikihow.com/Make-Crispy-Cookies

I like cookies that are crisp on the outside, these fit the bill. Great texture and flavor.

I didn’t want to bother digging out my stand mixer so I used a food processor instead, it worked fine. With the amount of oats, these would be hard to mix properly by hand.

I also cut the sugar in half, and added some vanilla and cinnamon. Other than that, this Crispy Oatmeal Cookie recipe from WikiHow is great. 😊

Hard to stop at one though!

A Recent “Cheddie” Photo!

Still as handsome as ever.

Still acting like a kitten, at 15 plus years young.

That’s our Cheddie!😁

🍁Happy Thanksgiving!🍁

It’s Thanksgiving weekend, here in Canada.

🌼I have much to be grateful for.🌼

This holiday just makes me think about those people (past and present) and things, even more than usual.😊

I think it’s a great idea to start the day, with a gratitude list. I try to do that, every day. Sets a positive tone for the rest of the day too.

🌹What are you most grateful for?🌹

On the Menu: Potato Scones

These scones are my favorite way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

So yummy and delish!😊

I made a batch this past week to go with soup for supper. No leftovers after that.😉

This has been a popular recipe download for years, here at Veggies….

Hope you enjoy some (sweet or savory) real soon.

🌻Happy Weekend!🌻

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

These scones are absolutely delicious, melt-in-your-mouth good!!!😊

I have now tried them as a vegan-friendly version, after being inspired by a post on the popular mainstream cooking blog:  Pinoy Cookthat featured this recipe and some gorgeous photos too….

I have included options for making them sweet or savory, vegan or not. I hope you will enjoy them too. I look forward to hearing about your results. PS Please excuse the less than pristine albeit clean, oldie but goodie…. pizza pan in my ‘action shot’  it actually looks worse in the photo than it is !.

HELP!! 😟My Links Have Disappeared.😢

I was doing a little blog cleaning last week, removing some old links from my sidebar, etc…

I don’t know how it happened, but now, as you can see, my blogroll is no longer visible (for all the links I had, further down on my sidebar).

The links ARE still there, when I check on the DASHBOARD, but they are no longer visible at this blog.

Yes, I did check that each one is still ✔ as visible and that each one still has a category .

And I did post this issue on the Forums, unfortunately, the answer I got was just basic and didn’t address what actually happened here.

I DID remove one category while working on this and that is where I think the trouble started. Now I don’t know what to do.

😟😟😟

If you’ve ever had this happen here at WP, please let me know how you fixed it.

As you know, there is no WP Support anymore, except for the Forums, so I don’t know what to try next.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!

The Joy of SOCKS!😊

I’ve done a lot of knitting and crocheting over the years.

Shawls, blankets, sweaters, gloves,hats…..

I’ve loved every minute of these creative pursuits.

But there is nothing quite like making REAL socks for the first time, for the ultimate knit satisfaction!😊

guilty socks 3

Unfortunately, many novice knitters in particular are very intimidated by the steps involved in making that first sock.

That’s where a really good how-to sock guide, book, site or video can be invaluable.

Unfortunately, one of my favorite how- to sock guides by Sandra Harris, is NO longer available at Amazon.😔

But there ARE plenty of resources out there for the wannabe sock knitter. It is a lifelong knitting skill SO worth learning.

 

RAVELRY is a great place to start.

Sign up is free and easy, if you’re not already a member. A fun and worthwhile place to visit, with a multitude of resources, for knitters at all levels.

 

And with 🎄 Christmas 🎄 only weeks away, this is a great time to start thinking about those perfect handmade 🎁🎁.

Socks Made With ❤ Are  SO Special!

Apple 🍎 Time Has Arrived!

One of the many things I ❤ about autumn, the harvest fruits and vegetables at their peak, and all the yummy recipes to use them in.

Apples are way up on that list!😊

The recipe (see page two) for:

 

AppleSour Cream, Crumb Pie

 

is one of my🍎 favorites that I hope you enjoy soon.

I’m making one of these oh so rich and yummy pies, later today.

Definitely good but definitely NOT for a dieting day!!😏

What’s Going On Amazon?

Has anyone else been experiencing really BAD customer service from Amazon recently?

amazon

I use the Amazon Canada site but I’m beginning to wonder if this is a company wide issue.

Delivery dates are hardly ever accurate and the representatives I’ve been emailing with recently about a variety of issues leave much to be desired. They don’t even answer the actual questions I’m asking, just some ” copy and paste” usually unrelated to the actual problems.

Even their Executive Office is slipping. That used to be a final resort that worked but even they seem to be just going through the motions now, and not serving their customers as they should.

Right now, I’m having an ongoing issue with a reseller order I placed for a laptop. I am not exaggerating, so far I have written at least 15 emails about this, LONG detailed emails, and still not resolved.

I ended up ordering another laptop from HP directly. Got a great bundle deal, including a new printer and no hassle!!

If Amazon doesn’t wise up soon, I am not going to order anything but e-books from them. THAT they can’t screw up (or so I’m hoping).

Please let me know if you are also noting a big slide in Amazon’s customer service. They aren’t the only game in town.

Mr. Bezo….Are YOU LISTENING??😕😔😪
