"Who Ate My Cookies?"

(R.H.) "Who ate my cookies?"

(Dewena) "I didn't eat your cookies."

(R.H.) "Well, I know I had two left."

(Dewena) "It wasn't me."

(R.H.) "Why don't we make some of your grandmother's cookies?"

(Dewena) "I'm paying bills, but I'll get you the recipe."

(R.H.) "Hey, we can blog about it!"

(Dewena) "Okay, I'll take the pictures, but you're still making the cookies."

(R.H.) "Have you ever heard the story of the Little Red Hen?"

(Dewena) "Yes, but I'm the one who knows where the recipe is."

"Empty?! You took all the cookies!"

"They were trying to get out of the jar...Cookies get claustrophobia too, you know!"

  1. Hahahaha! I love how your hubby says "we." Why don't "we" make cookies and then tries to bribe you with the "WE can blog about it." Lol!

    Hey, I say anything for a blog post, right? I once fished some pancakes out of the garbage just so I could blog about how I forgot about the pancakes and now they were as hard as a rock, and I took a picture of them too.

  2. Very cute post and now I am longing for a cookie~

  3. Oh I can't wait to try Grandma's cookies! They look so delicious! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Smart man to attempt the " blog about it" ruse! They sound yummy!

  5. LOL- Okay-I am saving your recipe for gramma's cookies. What a fun post- Your old boy seems to have enjoyed his bit of blog fame! xo Diana

  6. I wonder how long that cookie jar stayed full? I'll use your recipe next time my grandchildren come to stay, if you don't mind, it sounds yummie.

    When my son was very small and was discovered with the empty jar, he said, "I was looking at them and they just jumped into my mouth." Now I understand: they had claustrophobia!

  7. RH, you take the cake or cookie as it is! Grandma's cookies are the best! Now I want some! Over the Christmas candy, actually hid some in the pantry away from a candy lover husband. Sis, love your blogs, nice to open up this beautiful Saturday morning. Your writings are the best!

  8. Cute, cute, cute post! I've been debating making oatmeal bars for the past 24 hours. I may have to actually get off my easy chair and go do it, now that I've seen this. Thanks to both of you for making my day! Hugs. -- Nancy

  9. Wonderful post! Thanks for the cookie recipe. Can't wait to make these! And your husband is out Alton Brown! Made my day!

  10. These are my favorite cookies every one will love them unless you're one of those coconut haters :(

  11. Oh Dewena, so funny. Tell RH, that I always told that little Red Hen story to my daughters. I still bring it up, once in awhile.:):) Rh did a swell job on the cookies.:):)xoxo,Susie

  12. So good to see R.H. in your blogpost!!! Wow!

    I wish I had some of my grandma's recipes, on either side. I wonder what happened to them? My Aunt Ruth did all the baking for her mother as she got older (she was unmarried) and I wonder if my cousin has some of her recipes. A good thing to plan on finding out this spring!

  13. I just discovered your blog thanks to the comment you left on mine. I will bookmark it so I can visit often. I loved your cookie story. Peggy from pa

  14. Loved this post! I chuckled out loud. Bet those cookies were good! I think it's great that you and R.H. have fun blogging together.

  15. That is so funny! Dad cannot resist a cookie!! I'm just like him! I can't either...
