I love these recipes because they can be made by all ages (even wee little ones - especially the Reindeer Cookies). The Chocolate Oat Drop Cookies need some supervision when melting the butter and dropping the cookies. Both recipes are fast, easy and can really help you out in a holiday pinch when your child or significant other comes home and remembers they need 50 cookies first thing tomorrow morning for a cookie exchange at school or work. We’ve all been there, and now I have recipes for just such occasions!

Acts of violence can frighten anyone, but when it comes to violence in our own country, it hits much closer to home. The extraordinary events that occurred on Parliament Hill are extremely unnerving and upsetting for both children and parents. It is important for people to seek help and support one another through this challenging time for our country.
