Today's lovely guest is Kati from
I remember when I first came across her blog -
she had just shared a hymn and you all know I love the old hymns :)
I was immediately looking for the 'Follow' button!
She also has beautiful photos that she posts.
There is always something wonderful to see at Kati's sweet place.

My grandmother, Mommom as she is affectionately called, is a wonderful woman.
She loves the Lord.
She loved her husband of sixty-six years
(he has been to be with his Lord and Savior three years now).
She loves her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
She has an excellent memory!
She can remember every birthday of every single family member
which is quite a feat since my dad is one of eight and she has eighteen grandchildren
and twenty-seven great-grandchildren plus those who have married into the family!
She can listen to another conversation while taking part in another.
She can put her finger on anything she has in her house:
an outfit one of her children wore in a school picture, a receipt from 20 years ago, birthday cards,
party favors, lunchboxes, Easter baskets...
Since she lives just three doors down from us, I will occasionally walk down to her house
and we will spend an hour, sometimes two, sitting in her living room talking.
She can make the best coconut cake, peanut butter cake, and boiled cookies.
|Mommom and me|
Ever since I can remember we have made her recipe for boiled cookies.
Dad or my sister Kristin would make them some evening
and sometimes we couldn't even wait for them to cool. :)
I always think about Mommom when I make boiled cookies.
We have made these cookies so many times that the original recipe card that Mommom gave us
faded so that we could hardly read the recipe.
We copied the recipe over to a new card but kept the old one in her handwriting.
In our recipe book we have the new copy and the old side by side.
They are so easy to make and so yummy!
They use some of the best ingredients out there:
chocolate, peanut butter, oats...what could taste better than all those ingredients put together? ;)
And since they have oats they're healthy, right?
In a medium saucepan put together:
2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter
Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Take off heat.
3 cups oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Place tablespoonfuls on cookie sheets lined with waxed paper and refrigerate until hardened.
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as my family does!
