Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oh my!  These were so good!!  My husband said that these are the best cookies I've ever made.  I followed the recipe except I omitted the cloves and doubled the cinnamon.  I also soaked the raisins in water, then drained, prior to baking to prevent the raisins from burning.  This is definitely a keeper!

About Me
I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter, an 11 year old stepson and a 2 year old son. My husband has been in the United States Air Force for over 15 years, and I am a proud military wife!! My husband is by the far the best cook I know (just don't tell my mother I said that). His recipes are to die for but he won't share the recipes, even with me! I was born and raised in Arizona but my parents are both from NY originally - Queens and Brooklyn - and I spent a lot of time in NY growing up. My mother was raised in a Jewish/Italian neighborhood and learned how to cook great Italian dishes from people who came from the old country. She passed a lot of those lessons down to me. I still go back to NY whenever I can. My brother lives in NJ now and whenever I visit, I eat my way through town. There is nothing like pizza, Chinese food and baked goods from the east coast!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about everything! I have the "staple" recipes that are made on a regular basis, like baked ziti, meatloaf, casseroles, etc., but I get a huge kick out of trying new recipes. I am on Allrecipes several times a day (my husband says I'm an addict!) and you can usually catch me in the cookbook aisle of the bookstore. I love to experiment and see which recipes are "approved" by my husband and kids. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My love of cooking comes from my mother. When I was young, my mother used to throw big dinner parties and would cook everything herself. I remember being in the kitchen with her and helping her prepare...even if it was just mixing something it was fun for me. My mother and I use any holiday as an excuse to cook. Our two favorites are of course Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our menu consists of: Turkey, Ham, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Candied Yams, Green Bean Casserole, Corn Tomolita from Chevy's (a sweet corn side dish), cheesecake and 7-up cake. Yummy!
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I try something new and I get smiles and empty plates from my husband and the kids!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make my mother a sponge cake when I was 11. Let's just say that it more closely resembled a kitchen sponge than a cake!
