Ya’ll, I’ve done it again. I made MORE soup! I can not help myself. It just warms my heart so much; it’s irresistible to make… and eat of course! I was so excited to get this one on the table, … Continue reading
I am a soup lover. Just about any type of soup; all year long. I absolutely love it! I’m always looking at ways to bring in healthier eating to the family during the week since we tend to splurge and … Continue reading
I am the type of person who rather cook a new recipe every day than eat the same ole meals every week. So, while looking through my menu board meals I came across “Stroganoff”. With a deep … Continue reading
It’s Fall, y’all!! Seriously, the best time of year! I love the beautiful fall colors and the crisp, cool air and pumpkin everything! I guess you can call me a #basicwhitegirl. Ha! So, with the Fall season and loving pumpkin … Continue reading
Everyone that knows me, knows I love sweets. Now that I’m a breastfeeding mother who loves sweets, what better way to keep my supply up than with yummy lactation cookies!! What’s even better is all the ingredients are safe to share with the kids, husband and friends and family! Unless you don’t like to share, then I’d recommend telling them they are for lactating and unless they want to lactate, they can’t eat them. 😉 My kids and husband eat them more than I do, so I probably should have told them the cookies will make them lactate! Hehe!
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp flax seed
- 4 tbsp brewers yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 – 1 cup mix-ins of choice (chocolate chips, nuts, cranberries, etc.)
- 1 quart mason jar
when preparing to cook, you’ll also need:
- 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
To layer dry ingredients in jar:
(these layers will be different than the picture because I’ve come to realize the flour will fall through the cracks of the mix-ins, so it won’t be as pretty to look at. I place the flour as the top layer because it helps seal the jar and keeps the brown sugar from drying out in the air.)
- Rolled oats
- Mix-ins of choice (I used dried cranberries, semi-sweet and butterscotch chips)
- Brown sugar
- Flax seed and brewers yeast
- Mix together in a medium bowl : flour, salt, and baking powder then pour on top.
To mix and bake:
Preheat oven to 350°.
In a mixer, soften 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil.
Add 1 egg, 2 tbsp water and 1/2 tap vanilla extract.
Add contents of jar and mix well until all ingredients are wet. (If dough seems to be too runny/soft; place in refrigerator for about 15 minutes to firm up some.)
Drop by tablespoons onto a lined or greased baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
My family LOVES sushi and looks forward to the very few times we catch a chance to get out and enjoy some. The last time was 5 months ago for my birthday. I never thought that I would ever make any on … Continue reading
We missed crawfish season this year and will continue to miss it since we are no longer living in the South due to my husbands first wife; the United States Air Force. So I wanted to cook my family something … Continue reading
