… Mistletoe Make & Bake 2010 - day 3




So. . . have all these cookies recipes on the Mistletoe Make & Bake blog hop made you want to get into the kitchen & start baking? (. . . or at least made you hungry for cookies?) I know that as I've been 'hopping' to the other blogs, I can hardly wait to start making cookies!. . . (I'd start right away, but I have a crummy cold & I'm at the stage where my taste-buds have gone 'on strike' & I can't taste a thing!. . . so it's been chicken broth for me!). I'm thinking that the baking season at my house will be starting in about a week or so. . . The neighbors won't know what hit them!


Todays subject . . . well it made me smile, because it's some hints I could use! The subject is - cocktail party conversation starters that allow you to avoid standing in the corner alone. . . Ha-ha! I'm not the best to answer that question. . . as  1) I've never been to a cocktail party in my life. . . &,   2) if I did. . . I would most likely be the one standing in the corner! (lol!)  But. . . I'll give it a try & if it were a holiday party - then I would ask someone what their favorite toy was as a child, & why. I think that might give some insight to the person & the child we all have within.
. . . So, what would you use as a conversation starter? (I could use some ideas!. . . just in case!)


For todays recipe. . . I'm sticking with some classics. For those that know me - or have followed my blog for a bit - know that I am a girl that loves her oatmeal. . . & her chocolate! So this cookie hits all the bases for me!. . . it's Oatmeal Chocolate Chippers. . .

Day 2 -
Oatmeal Choco Chippers...Mmmm!
Thank you for the recipe.
I'd use the plate of cookies as a starter...I'd ask if they like cookies!

Bren, thanks for another winning cookie recipe. I shudder at what you would think of me if we were at a party and you asked about my favorite childhood toy - I fondly remember a grungy, green-haired doll who barely wore a stitch of clothing because even back then I was curious as to how clothing was made. (I still take apart items of clothing to figure out how to make my own rendition.) Hehehe - I'm laughing as I look ahead at my word verification - it's "weight" - great one to go along with all these cookie recipes! Just reading them adds the "weight."

Sandy said...

I like to ask people to tell me about their favorite Christmas. Everyone has a story, we just have to draw it out. :)
I like your favorite toy idea...will have to try that as well. Oatmeal & Chocolate - I'm with you!

Brenda said...

The only thing that can make an oatmeal cookie even better is an oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips! Thank you for sharing.

It's best to avoid cocktail parties..one cocktail and I'm talking to everyone! lol Perhaps the Oatmeal cookies could be a buffer? Thanks for sharing.

Those cookies sell themselves in the photo ... they look delicious! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe :)

Melissa said...

I love oatmeal cookies although I prefer raisins. My husband prefers chocolate chips. There is normally pushing around the batter bowl to see who can get their ingredient in the bowl first. :)

Cindi said...

You are so right! Oatmeal and Chocolate, they are the best. Thanks.

Cindi said...

I like chocolate chips in my oatmeal cookies better than raisins. Of course, the raisins are healthier (but this is the holiday season-so I say Go With Chocolate)
