Thoughtful Thursday

      I don't know about anyone else but this year has flown by. I'm still trying to process that it's November & still feels like Summer outside. Then again, I do live in the Southeast where we really only have 3 seasons at this point so not sure what I was expecting. The weather has been at crazy as this whole year in general. With the weather being the way it is, I finally broke down & bought a humidifier for the house. I have started to sleep better since I've started using it.

Other than that, I have gotten some more practicing more reiki & space cleaning for friends around me. It's been going okay so far. Going to eventually do a rebranding to try to fit all that into my blog & social media. Speaking of the blog, today I'm still using quotes from Billy Chapata's last book that I read. Here are some thoughts for this week:

Peace & blessings, all. Have a great Thursday!!!

Recipe: Oatmeal Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

     Hello all.  So, I was going to post the recipe in October but, life happened.  This year has flown & month have flown by. At this point, my sense of time is super crazy. Anywho, I have been wanting/trying to find an essay oatmeal cookie recipe that is not super hard. This recipe that I'm sharing is from Preppy Kitchen's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I did added some sea salt caramel to the cookies along with the chocolate chips.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar 
  • 2/3 cup light-brown sugar 
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats 
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips 
  • 1 cup sea salt caramel pieces

I pre-heated the oven to 375. While the oven was pre-heating, I put the oats in my mini food processor. I did this so that the oats would have more of a flour texture.

Mix flour & baking soda together in bowl. Sit aside.

Add soften butter, brown sugar, & granulated sugar in mixer. Mix until blended together.

Add egg, vanilla, & salt to butter/sugar mixture. 

Mix ingredients together until smooth/blended well.

To the sugar. butter mixture, fold in the chocolate chips, oatmeal, & sea salt caramel pieces. Place dough in fridge for 1-2 hours. Doing this will make the dough easier to form into balls.

After I formed them into balls, I baked them at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes. Once done, I did let them cool for about 5 minutes. One suggestion to make sure that they don't end up over-cooked is to literally bake them for the 8 to 10 minutes. If you even cook them a minute or two over, they potentially will be hard. 

Well, that's all for today. Peace & Blessings, all!!

Thoughtful Thursday

          Happy first Thursday of November. I've been busy going on job interviews & finishing some of my courses. My goal is to try to blog at three times a week for the rest of the year. We'll see if that happens though. Other than that, I've been trying to cook more at home again. Also, I've been making a dent in the tower of books that I bought at the end of last year/beginning of this year. Until then here are some thoughts for this Thursday.

                       Peace & Blessings, all. Have a great Thursdcay!!!
