Today’s blog is fully inspired by my friend Chelsey who is visiting my wife and I in Calgary this week from sunny California. She wrote a guest post to go with her rainy day inspired cookies to boot! Read on if you want to find out more about what one of my biggest fans has to say about my kitchen…

“My mom always told me when I was growing up that rainy days are for making cookies. So now that I find myself in Calgary on rainy upon rainy afternoon, I thought to myself, “why not bake some cookies?!” The Male Baker has all the key baking tools to get the job done which made baking easy and fun! I decided to go for oatmeal chocolate chip medley skor cookies because who doesn’t like all the flavours of butterscotch, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and skor all together in one bite? Plus, the oatmeal gives you all the fiber you need, so it makes you think you are being healthy.” ~Chelsey
