I am a huge fan of swap-outs when it comes to cooking, baking, and snacking. In fact, there are not many recipes that I do NOT make a single swap. (Well, unless it is a new recipe that I am making for a large group of people on limited them. If this is the case, I don’t want to experiment and make something nasty.)
If you recall, I received a bunch of yummy products from Sunsweet a couple of months ago. One of the products that peeked my interested was the Amazin’s. Chopped prunes. Ready to enter any recipe. Deserts, entrees… the possibilities are endless.
I definitely tend to indulge in my sweet tooth more so than savory dishes – so I wanted to bake something.. something I love. Oatmeal cookies? Uhh. only my favorite. Oatmeal Prune cookies? Sure! Why not?!
But why prunes instead of raisins or other dried fruits? Believe it or not – prunes are the way to go. To find out why … you’ll just have to check out my post over on Spry to see why prunes are such a better dried fruit to use!
And as for these delicious cookies… well, I suggest you make them ASAP!
You can find the cookie recipe – as well as tons of creative recipe using many Sunsweet Products right on the Sunsweet site!
And don’t forget – you can STILL enter to win $1000 dollars in the Amazing Prune Sweepstakes! Hurry before time runs out!
What is your favorite ingredient swap?

(Insert awkward greeting after a near 2 month hiatus). Actually.. let’s just jump straight to the point. I’ve been gone. I’ve been busy.. but if you ask with what, I probably couldn’t give you an answer. When it comes down to it, I just didn’t feel like blogging.
See, I have a little bit of an obsessive personality. I tend to find something I like and then put way too much of my time and effort into it – thus taking away from more important aspects of my life.
But, I think I am ready to jump back in and blog on a more regular basis. I’ve done a lot of (well, I don’t want to call it soul searching.. so let’s just go with reflecting). If you are still reading – or still have me in your reader (which by the way, I don’t what I am going to do when google reader shuts down in a few mere months) – thanks for sticking around.. and maybe I will post something worthwhile.
Can I catch up on life? Umm.. Not really. I just checked out my camera roll. It is filled with unpostable teacher pictures. But I can tell you I’ve been living life with my family.. enjoying time with my husband
and all others who are important.
Also – a special congrats to Kaitlin – who just got engaged! , Chelsey – who is pregnant with TWINS!, and a special prayer for Ashley who just had her beautiful baby, Hunter – who has had a rough go at it in his first few days of life. (See, I’ve kept up.. kind of).
Catch up up on other important news!
What do you plan to do when google reader is nonexistent?!
