Get out the mixer and warm up the oven because it’s going to be a yummy, yum, yummy Bake Along this month! We would love to have YOU join in the fun with us. Here is how:
This month’s star baker is Kate @ Life, Tea,and Everything. Kate is a Crocheter and has also just learned to Quilt! She is AMAZING:). But her weight loss journey this year has been truly inspiring. Way to go Kate! Luckily she still finds a few calories to share with us each month though. I’m so glad. It is always fun to Bake Along with her:)
For this month’s recipe, she has chosen to share her grandma’s oatmeal cookies. Now we’re talking! A tried and true family recipe. Yum! I can’t wait to make up a batch or two!
Here is the recipe, but be sure to head over to Kate’s fantastic blog to hear about the sweet story behind these cookies.

- 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup boiling water
