My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Quaker Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

They changed the recipe on the lid of the cylinder! I've been using that recipe as long as I've been making cookies. They are the best oatmeal raisin cookies in the world, why would they change it? There was no reason to write it down, it was always there.

If you have the lid from an older box of oatmeal you better save it. Thank goodness I did. If not and you want me to post it let me know. I can't do right now because I'm too annoyed.

I was going to whip up a batch of these for a friend and her son that are driving to Florida Saturday. You know you have to have munchies in the car for kids. That is when I noticed the strange amounts for the butter and brown sugar. Don't change the butter and sugar in my cookies. If I wanted a healthy cookie I'd eat a graham cracker.

Just thought you would like to know about this. I really think this calls for a letter or email to The Quaker Oat Company. I'll let you know what they say.

Thanks for listening, I feel better already.


  1. Uh-oh. Bev's on the warpath! ;)

  2. These are such great cookies. A staple in life!

  3. Thank goodness I had written them down. I noticed when I made my traditional Sunday morning oatmeal that the font on the recipe was different. I make them all of the time, only my husband hates raisins so I make them as chocolate chip. Excellent with the cinnamon. Some things should just never change.

  4. haha you GO girl!!!

    sorry to say i never had them.... sorry


  5. Oh dear, I hope I have that lid around here somewhere! thanks for the warning.

  6. Quaker Oatmeal Raisin Cookies have been around a long time. I remember my mother making them back in the old days when I was a kid....about 100 tears ago :-)
