Oatmeal Toffee Crisps Photo Shoot

Yesterday I shared my kitchen with you over at iLashGirls.  The beautiful pictures of my kitchen were taken by my friend Meg of Megan Daines Photography.

The day she took the photos I made a batch of Oatmeal Toffee Crisps and she followed me around the kitchen – it was so much fun.  I almost felt famous!

One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and toffee.

Remember those Chocolate Chip and Toffee Scones - yum!

Chocolate chips and toffee bits are wonderful in cookies too!  This cookie is a thin cookie that is crisp around the edges but slightly chewy in the middle – another perfect combination!  I found the recipe for the Oatmeal Toffee Crisps over at Kara’s Kitchen Creations

Enjoy this fun pictorial  as well as the cookies!





Ready for the oven….




Cookies anyone?


And then we had fun being food stylists!

    I was wondering where you purchased the plates to serve your cookies on and the bowl that your fruit is in. I loved them!

    Some of my favorite places to find dishware and serving pieces are Home Goods, Ross and TJ Maxx! I love handpainted ceramics and pottery and pick up pieces here and there. I’ve also found some great pieces at Target.

    Leigh Anne,

    Will you please share how you get your granite so shiny? Mine looks really dull.

    Thanks for another great recipe!

    Leigh Anne,

    The pork roast & cookies look absolutely yummy!!! Your pictures are fantastic and so is your beautiful kitchen! I love your countertops and have a question about them. I’m saving to replace my countertops and read recently that the shiny dark granite is hard to keep looking clean and makes crumbs very noticeable. I would have thought the opposite but I’m wondering what your experience has been?

    I love my dark granite but yes I think it probably is a little harder to keep clean. If you have it sealed well though it helps and a good cleaner will keep a nice shine on it.
