Oatmeal Raisinets Cookies

By now you may have realized that I have a passion for baking. Not only to eat tasty treats but also for the memories I create with my children. Baking was such a big part of my childhood, it’s the dearest memory I have with my mother growing up. I remember checking out cookbooks from the library and always having a new recipe request to make. My mother would take me to the store with my recipe list in hand, happily encouraging me to experiment in the kitchen. These are the memories I look to recreate with my own children and hope that they look back on when they’re older. Today I’m sharing with you an Oatmeal Raisinets Cookie recipe we recently made together.

With the start of the Raisinets Enlightened Enjoyment sweepstakes it made me reflect on the things that bring joy into my life. My family is my number one source of joy and fulfillment, they are what complete me. Yesterday we had a picnic at the park and I honestly can’t remember the last time I had such a great time. There’s something about playing with the kids out in a big open soccer field that makes my heart melt. There are plenty of other things that bring joy to my life. Besides spending quality time with my family I love baking, reading, running, crafting, and sharing ideas with all of YOU!
