Coconut Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies | The Homesteader's Free Library

Holy cow, homesteaders! I may have just found my new favorite cookie of all time. They’re delightfully crisp on the outside, and have an almost caramel-like chewiness on the inside. The coconut and butterscotch chips melt together to make the perfect chewy texture. And while they’re just as sweet as you want your cookies to be, they also have just a hint of saltiness to pique your tastebuds. The dough balls even freeze nicely, so you can make one, or two, or six whenever the craving strikes. I’m just going to come right out and say that they’re kind of the perfect cookie. You should really make some this weekend.

Honey Health: Using Honey in Home Remedies, Baking, and Skin Care

Dogs may have a challenger when it comes to the “Man’s Best Friend” Award.  Honeybees pollinate eighty percent of the fruit, vegetable, and seed crops in the United States.  In addition, they are the only insects that produce a food that humans eat.  Honey, which the bees have been producing for 150 million years, contains all of the substances necessary to sustain life, including water.  And if that (in addition to its delicious taste) wasn’t enough, honey provides us with a myriad of health benefits and can be used in home remedies, baking, and beauty recipes.
