No Sugar No Butter Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Do I like cookies? Yes I do!

Can I have ten cookies in a day? Yes I can!

Do I have an amazing metabolism and burn everything I eat? Oh God no.

Therefore, I had to come up with a recipe for my favorite cookies that doesn’t have as much butter and sugar. Though we all know everything is better with butter and sugar, but if you want to stay on the healthy side, this is a good recipe to try.

Chicken and vegetables Calzones

Yes! We are back in Seattle again! I love this city and everything about it, my husband’s parents and relatives are here so it’s wonderful to be in Seattle, plus people here are so nice and happy. They also drive really carefully which makes everything much smoother.

It felt so good to be back to my in-laws house. I’m quite sure I have said it before that they are really nice and kind people, but I just can’t stop repeating it. They also have a great kitchen and they always tell me to feel at home and do whatever I like in the kitchen, and yes I do whatever I like and make anything I like! Well usually everyone likes the food I make, haha.

Chicken Stuffed Peppers

So that day we had chicken stuffed peppers with our bulgur pilaf and they were OH-SO-GOOD. I personally don’t like traditional eastern type of stuffed peppers because they are mostly filled with rice therefore they are really dense. Here is my version of stuffed peppers that I made for the first time, I’m thinking of more diverse ingredients to use next time I’m making these babies!

We loved the bubbly mozzarella on top and juicy chicken inside the pepper, such a great combination in total.
