bonanza blog party cookies

Earlier this month, I attended a fabulous blog party at the 4th annual JunkBonanza hosted by Ki Nassauer of Junk Revolution.  I can never show up at a party empty-handed, so I whipped up some cookies that morning, and they were a big hit at the gathering.  I promised to post the recipe on my blog, and have been remiss in doing that, so without further ado.................

Bonanza Blog Party Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies!
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 c oats
1 c (or bag) chocolate chips

-cream butter, eggs and sugar
-add dry ingredients and mix well
-add oats and chocolate chips and mix well

-bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned
-cool and store in airtight container

I chatted with so many interesting and talented people there, including the very creative Matthew Mead and his equally talented wife, Jenny.  Visual divas Heather Bullard and Linda MacDonald were also there, and it was a treat to meet them.  Matthew and Ki have dreamed up a wonderful new magazine to satiate all of us that are hungry for a new design publication-yay!  Heather and Linda are along for the crazy ride, as well as
an entire team of talented writers, designers and art directors.  Check it all out here

I also had the great pleasure of finally meeting, in person, the very fun and stylish Nancy Soriano.   Nancy was editor of Country Living magazine for 10 years, and is now teaming up with Jo Packham of Where Women Create on a brand new venture focusing on women entrepreneurs, a long time passion for both of them.

It is always inspiring to be around such a group of creative individuals, and it will be exciting to keep up with their new endeavors.
