I love how happy Hudson looks in each of these photos. You totally made his day :) I think I'll have to try that recipe as we love bananas at our house too.

Now that's a good mommy, baking cookies on a Sunday afternoon. You know if it was you and I making them there would be some kind of food fight like we used to do lol.

Hey Christine, I didn't know you had a blog - fun! Hudson had a great day home by himself. I forget how much that is needed sometimes. Sorry to read about Tim the fish. Hope Laela is feeling better.

I made these cookies today and they were mmmmmmmm good! We traded chocolate chips for the raisins and left out the cinnamon. It is hard for me to bake anything without including chocolate... The recipe is definitely a keeper - thanks for sharing.

You're welcome - glad they came out yummy! The recipe calls for dates but, I used raisins since I always have them on hand. I need to try chocolate chips next time. I love raisins but, they can't compete with chocolate ;)
