Who wants a …reasonably…healthy delicious dessert/snack?! Yay for oatmeal! These little cookies are so sweet you’ll probably only be able to eat one at a time! They’re so good and not nearly as unhealthy as regular cookies! Also, staying true to my style, they’re really easy to make!

You Will Need:
-1.5 cups flour (The original recipe called for whole wheat flour, but umm, I don’t use that…)
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 cup vegetable oil (I know, this sounds like a lot, but it’s not a typo. I used olive oil. Not because I was trying to be healthy, just because I was out of regular vegetable oil.)
-1 cup sugar
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 cups oatmeal
-3 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
-3 teaspoons honey

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees
-In a small bowl mix together flour, salt, and baking soda.
-In a mixer bowl mix together vegetable oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and oatmeal
-Add in the flour mix until well blended
-Place dough balls on a greased cookie sheet
-Bake for about 10 minutes until the edges are just starting to turn golden
-While the cookies are baking mix together the peanut butter and honey
-After the cookies are completely cool make cute little sandwiches with them using the peanut butter as filling.

This recipe makes about 30 sandwiches.

Baked Salmon

I have never cooked any kind of fish before. Andrew will fry fish at the farm every once in a while, but I personally have never cooked any kind of fish. Andrew and I both love salmon though so the other day at the grocery store he grabbed 2 salmon fillets and said we were going to try them. I found a few recipes on the internet that looked pretty good, but they each had something missing. So…I just combined all the things I liked from each recipe and came up with this one. It was the bomb! Seriously, these salmon fillets were so easy to cook and they turned out amazing.

What You Need:
-Salmon fillets
-Whole lemons
-Butter
-Salt
-Pepper
-Thyme

Directions:
-Spread parchment paper out on a baking sheet
-Lay salmon fillets skin side down on the parchment paper
-Season salmon with salt, pepper, and thyme
-Lay about a tablespoon of butter on each salmon filet (You don’t have to spread it out, just drop a spoonful in the center, it will melt and run across the filet)
-Cut lemons into thin slices and cover the salmon with the lemon slices.
-Set oven to 400 degrees. Put salmon in the COLD oven, don’t preheat it, let the oven heat up with the salmon in it.
-Bake for 25 minutes then enjoy!
