Loaded M&M Oreo Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
18 Oreo Cookies, coarsely chopped; another type of chocolate sandwich cookie may substituted, or about 2 heaping cups of coarsely chopped add-ins including leftover cookies, graham crackers, chocolate-covered pretzels, etc.)
about 1/2 cup M&M's (I used plain, use your favorite flavor or other chopped candy)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large, microwave-safe bowl melt the butter, about 1 minute on high power.
  3. Wait momentarily before adding the egg so you don't scramble it. Add the egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the flour and stir until just combined, don't overmix.
  5. Stir in the Oreos.
  6. Turn batter out into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
  7. Evenly sprinkle the M&Ms over the top, lightly pressing them down with your finger or a spatula.
  8. Bake for about 20 to 22 minutes, or until done based on add-ins used. Top should be set and edges slightly firm. A toothpick inserted in the center  should come out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Allow bars to cool in pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving. Bars will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

It's been a while, here's a few recent client quilt finishes.

I love this one of Lynne's. She may have been lucky to have gotten it back ;)

This stunner from Conni

It was late when I took these pictures so the colours are off. The quilt is actually shades of navy and denim with a white background.
I quilted it in a silver thread.

I love Conni's backing

quilt monday

This summer has not been as productive as I had hoped. Or planned lol. This quilt wasn't even on my summer sewing list! But I was tempted by an online quilt along and I just happened to have this jelly roll waiting to be made up.

The pattern is Swell from the book Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley.
It was a very fun quilt to make and went together faster than I had thought. I just needed to have spent more time completing the top lol.

I wasn't sure how I wanted it quilted so I went super simple and did Swirl on it. Sometimes the simplistic patterns make the most impact.

I used some of the leftover strips as binding; love the look.

Maybe I'll be able to squeeze one more project out this summer. Maybe.
