Two years ago my fabulous hubby bought me a Kitchenaid mixer. I finally broke it out of the box and have used it four times now - this thing is AMAZING!!!!!! Anywho, so I have this recipe from my Madison St. Mom called Cowboy cookies. Everything you can think of are in these cookies - peanut butter, chocolate chips, oatmeal, and coconut....ohhh how I LOVE coconut. So here are the cookies that I made followed by Nachos - NACHOS!!!!!!!
