Salted Oatmeal Cookies

I snagged this recipe from a friend's blog. While the cookies themselves were a little heavy for me (I like mine more buttery), the salt on top was an excellent addition!

Chicken Corn Chowder

One of our favorite dinners and super easy to throw together!

1 small onion, diced
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 cup celery, sliced thin
2 cups cubed, peeled potatoes
1 cup carrots, sliced
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken breast
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can evaporated milk
2 cups chicken broth
red pepper flakes, to taste
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Saute onion and bell pepper in 1 Tbsp olive oil until tender. Dice the potatoes and place in microwave safe container. Cook on high for 5 minutes. Add to onions along with cubed chicken and saute another 2-3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer 20 minutes. Enjoy!
