    Last Sunday was the first Sunday of Advent – my favorite time of year. I wanted to dress up but it was so cold out (in southern California!) so I needed to layer up a tad. It also didn’t help that my dress was satin so I wore my boyfriend blazer over it along with knee high socks that I wish were thigh highs… it worked during the day but by the time the sun set, we went home, I immediately changed into some sweats and grabbed myself a hot latte ;p nothing beats snuggling on the couch with your Love when it’s cold out… <3

    Yummy in my tummy – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

    An Dyer's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

    Everyone always makes a dish to bring to my Grandparents’ house for holidays – I usually cheat and buy a dish to bring mostly because it’s a tough crowd. You see, my family is full of great cooks. My Mom’s dishes are guaranteed amazing, my Grandma’s dishes are like Vietnamese comfort food and all my Aunts’ dishes are always crowd pleasers. It’s intimidating! I decided to bake something for Thanksgiving this year so I turned to my personal favorite, a specialty I’d like to think I’ve mastered. Here’s the recipe, enjoy!


    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 sticks (=1 cup) of butter, softened to room temperature
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
    • 6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips


    Preheat oven to 350°.

    Creme together the brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and oats together. Then mix them both together by slowly adding in your dry flour mixture. Fold/Stir in the chocolate chips. Make round tablespoons of the cookie dough and place them on your cookie sheet about 2-inches apart. Bake on the center rack for 13-15 minutes.  Transfer them onto a cooling rack. (Makes about 2 to 2.5 dozen)

    Voila! Cookies! YUM!

    Better late than never 🙂

    My side of the famliy usually celebrates holidays on the weekend after or closest to it to ease the stress of traveling for all of our relatives. This Thanksgiving, we had dinner (part II for my husband and I) at my Grandparents’ house the following Saturday. My Grandmother has always disliked dark/harsh colors (I wouldn’t dare wear black or scarlet red to their house!) so I knew my choices of outfits were limited. She prefers pastels and neutrals but pulling off pastels in Autumn was a little difficult. I decided to wear taupes and browns with my creme lace skirt and topped it all off with a baby pink cardigan. I think my look is still on the Spring’ish side but the combination of browns plus tights pulls it back to Autumn…
