I know it’s been a while but I’m finally back :)  I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress and it unfortunately didn’t like my blog template.  That needed to be fixed… and it took a lot longer than I ever expected.  In the interim, I was afraid to try and publish any new content so I (im)patiently waited it out :)  But yes, I’m back and happy to bring you these super tasty vanilla cupcakes!   Recently I was contacted by Singing Dog Vanilla asking me to try their vanilla extract.  My first response was a resounding “sure thing!” and was even more pleased when they agreed to sponsor a giveaway for one of my blog readers!  A giveaway in which the winner will have a choice between two different Singing Dog Vanilla products!  A giveaway that will tap your creativity!  A giveaway that is not limited to “US Residents Only”… this time it’s open to those of you in Canada as well so this giveaway really is a good thing!

Sadly, it’s the last 3-day weekend of summer in the US.  Vacations are winding down, kids are returning to school and in some parts of the country cooler temps are right around the corner.  I had been wanting to make these cookies for a while now but for some reason, tons of other recipes leapfrogged them on the “must make” list.  Luckily, with the extra day this weekend I found some time to actually bake… and I finally made them.  Oh sure, oatmeal cookies might not scream “yay – summertime” but if you ask me they’re a good cookie any time of year.   And when they’re chewy… and have chocolate chips… they’re even better!
