Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies…need to say more? This recipe combines three of my favorite types of cookies, chocolate chip, peanut butter and oatmeal. If you are a fan of soft and very chewy cookies, then you are going to love these babies! This week Andrew and I are vacationing in Arizona. We have planned to spend a few days in Sedona, a few days in the Grand Canyon, and then to Scottsdale where Andrew will spend three days at a Dermatopathology conference. Right now we are in Sedona. If you have never been to Sedona, Arizona you are really missing out! Sedona’s famous red rocks are absolutely breathtaking. We arrived here last night to see the tops of the rocks covered in snow. The bright white against the red looked amazing. We were told that seeing snow on top of the rocks this time of year is very rare. The next few days are supposed to warm back up and be mostly sunny, which leaves Andrew and I great weather for hiking Sedona’s famed rocks. Have you ever been to Sedona, Arizona? If so, I would love to hear about some great activities and restaurants that shouldn’t be missed!
