The ingredients and recipe are listed here if you want to give it a try!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter softened

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar packed

1 large egg

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp honey

1 1/4 cup all purpose flower

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup quick oats*

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

*if you only have old fashioned oats, take 1 1/2 cups of the old fashioned oats, then remove 1 cup and put that in the food processor/blender. Give it 1-3 short pulses and now you have your 1 cup of quick oats!

Instructions:

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line your baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.

-In a large bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars until fluffy.

-Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and honey

-With the mixer on low speed, beat in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.

-Mix in the quick oats and the old fashioned oats

-Form the dough into balls about 1 tablespoon in size and place 2 inches apart on your baking sheet with parchment paper

-Bake in the middle rack for 9-11 minutes

-Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. Then enjoy!

Storing Cookies: you can store the oatmeal cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days, though they may get eaten before then! Haha!

Has Anyone Tried This Before?!

So a few years ago, my friend put me on to bubble tea and from then on, I got hooked! Lol

Check out what I thought when I first tried bubble tea! My First Bubble Tea Experience!

So I found a spot literally right up the street from my place so I don’t know if this is a good or a bad thing lol. I might end up going there like everyday haha!

The place is called King Fu Tea and they serve milk tea, slushies, and other assorted drinks that have many flavors and add ons!

I usually order a milk tea with the flavored bubbles and I love it so much! I’m already a big tea drinker so this is like heaven for me!

I have to say that I enjoy this version of bubble tea more than my first bubble tea. Mainly because the first time, it had the chewy tapioca pearls which I’m not a fan of. This tea has the bubbles that are flavorful and have a nice pop to them!

Earl Grey Tea with hints of rose hip and blueberry with grape bubbles

Have you tried bubble tea before? If so, what is your favorite combo?!

My Valentine’s Day 2021

So my hubby and I don’t really make it a big deal to celebrate Valentine’s Day. But we figured that this is our first V Day living in a new city, new home, new everything pretty much lol. So we wanted to take advantage of this holiday and celebrate!

We decided last minute that we wanted to try and go bowling. Unfortunately every place was packed so we just decided to stay home lol. And yes we’re being safe out there for those who are wondering lol.

We ended up ordering dinner from a nice local restaurant and ate it at home while watching a movie. We loved all the food that we ordered so we are definitely ordering from them again!!! Here are a few pictures of what we ordered!

Crab stuffed shrimp, fried Brussels sprouts, bbq corn, and biscuits
Hubby had steak and scallops
This was one of our appetizers. It was pork belly with corn. OMG amazing!
All the other food we ordered!

I also told hubby that all he has to get me is a bouquet of flowers, I didn’t want roses because I wanted to be different lol. So check out what he got for me!

I loved it! And the strawberries were delicious too! Yum!

Funny story is that I planned to make my own chocolate covered strawberries so when I saw his strawberries I was surprised, but I definitely wasn’t complaining! Haha! Here are how my strawberries turned out!

I used Hershey’s chocolate to coat the strawberries. So delicious!

So I have to say that I enjoyed my V Day! Did you do anything for Valentine’s Day?!
