Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches with Sweet Tea Frosting


Super chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches with Sweet Tea Frosting.  These totally kick Little Debbie in the butt!  

So, I almost had a mini heart attack yesterday.  I’m very new to this whole hosting on the internet thing and blogging.  It’s a scary frontier and I’m always learning something new about it everyday.  Well, I wanted to set up my Google Webmasters account and verify ownership – I’m sure all you bloggers know what I’m talking about.  It’s a cool way to see who links to my blog and see if anyone out in the world is talking about little ol’ me.  As I was going into my hosting account and adding the Google text I accidentally changed the DNS pointer.  Sounds harmless…


My webpage stopped working.  Anyone who is internet savvy or has been blogging for a while is probably thinking “No big deal.  It’s not broken.  Only put on hiatus for a little bit.”  Well, I thought I LOST everything.  Yes, I’ve only been blogging for a little over a month, but hey, this little yummy blog has become my baby!  So after talking to techs from my hosting company on the phone, they informed me (through crazy technical internet space language) that, “No…You did not lose your measly two months of blog content.  You just have to wait for the site to propagate.”  Whatever the heck that means…

So in conclusion:  Do not get cocky with the interwebs and think you can successfully change a little code and things be okay.

Lesson learned.


So in the midst of my despair yesterday, what do I always do when I’m a wreck?


Like I’ve mentioned before, I’m a lover of chocolate chip cookies.  Oatmeal raisin cookies seem so blah.  Oatmeal. Raisins. Eh.  Yet these little guys are awesome.  I wanted to channel Little Debbie, but show her who’s boss.  These are so chewy, with little bursts of fruity raisins in each bite and the sweet tea frosting rocks it even further.  The frosting was leftover from the Lemon Blackberry Cupcakes I made a few days earlier.

    See it’s things like this that scare the heck out of me every time I consider self hosting! I know if I were in your shoes I would have been freaking out and praying to the magical beings that run the internet for mercy. I’m glad that everything worked out ok! If anything at least you got some awesome cookies out of the experience. I love oatmeal raisin cookies and you can only make something even better with a good dollop of frosting.
