Hi friends! Just wanted you to know that I'm doing a cool review of some cookware (watch for that coming soon) from the CSN stores coming soon! If you haven't heard of CSN, they have over 200 online stores and sell everything you could possibly imasgineThey have all sorts of awesome kitchen gadgets that I LOVE, but also have some really nice home decor, including modern bedding (love the accent pillows!).

Please change your Tasty Sensations from http://www.heidisrecipes.blogspot.com/ link to:
I decided since that's what I call the site, that's what the URL should be. I've also been daydreaming up some ideas on how to spice up my favorite hobby of food-blogging. Check out the same-old-but-good, and soon-to-be-new blog - I'll be getting around to adding some new recipes and other fun stuff soon!

Preheat oven to 325.
Mix until fluffy:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
Add one at a time:
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Mix together and add:
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
By hand, stir in:
3 cups quick oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup golden raisins (or substitute for chocolate chips if you prefer)
Bake for 13 minutes in preheated oven. Remove and let cool on pan for 5-10 minutes, then cool completely on wire racks (or eat warm!)
Please pardon the lack of posts lately! Lots of changes going on in the Tasty Sensations kitchen (new baby just came, moving kitchen from one state to another). Be patient for another month or so, and I'll be back with regular posts that will make you drool. Until then, I'll post some here and there that are worth trying out!
3 c. old-fashioned rolled oats
1 c. slivered (not sliced) almonds
1 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. chopped dried apricots
1/2 c. chopped dried apples
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 300.
On a large baking sheet, combine the oats, almonds, and walnuts, and bake for 30 minutes, stirring once after 15 minutes. Transfer the cereal to a large mixing bowl. Add the honey and, using a large rubber spatula, stir to combine thoroughly. Add the apples and apricots and stir well. Cool, stirring occasionally. Serve at room temperature.
Another variation I like to call "Banana Nut Protein Crunch":
3 c. oats, 1/2 c. cashews, 1/2 c. almonds, 1/2 c. walnuts, 1/2 c. dried bananas - toast that all same as above (I toasted mine 20 min. on each side). Add honey (to taste), stir to combine.
So good, and so easy! Thanks to Sylvia for this yummy one!
1 pkg. ranch dressing powder
2 lbs. red potatoes, washed and quartered

Toss quartered potatoes and oil in a ziploc bag to coat. Add dressing powder and toss to coat. Place in ungreased baking dish in single layer.
Bake at 450 for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
Got this recipe from Summer/Mandi, and modified it a bit. It was great!
