Lactation Cookies

I've made a couple batches of these since the twins were born. They are very tasty! The brewer's yeast is one of the key ingredients and can be found at most grocery stores. These would be fun to make for a new mom!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips
2 -4 tablespoons brewer's yeast

Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix the flaxseed meal and water and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar well.
Add eggs and mix well. Add flaxseed mix and vanilla, beat well.
Sift together flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, and salt.
Add dry ingredients to butter mix.
Stir in oats and chips.
Scoop onto baking sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Let set for a couple minutes then remove from tray.

Week of January 20, 2014

I didn't feel like cooking this week :)

Costco pizza brought over by friends Rich and Rissa

I made a double bath of this Cowboy Spaghetti for community group. It was really tasty (anything with bacon is) and would work great for a frozen dinner swap.

Egg Burritos

Kids have leftover spaghetti while Mark and I go out to Buffalo Wild Wings to cheer on the #1 AZ Wildcats!!


*Easy Green Chili Enchiladas and Mexican Rice- I would have liked a little more spice in the rice but it had enough flavors.

*Cowboy Dinner- simple and tasty. The cornbread topping was my favorite

*Black Bean Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust- I used Trader Joes crust. 5 Stars- loved it.

Community group

*Taco enchiladas with cornmeal crepes- this is a recipe to make on the weekend because the crepes take a bit of time to make. But the flavor and texture of the enchiladas were awesome


*Creamy Fettuccini with Ham and Peas- Tasted like a homemade version of Pasta Roni- really creamy and a home run for kids

*Fire Roasted Mac and Cheese- Saisha and James fought over the leftovers of this one

Sandwich Picnic after walking on the ferry to Kingston

Mom's enchiladas

*Orange Sweet Rolls- tasty but I would rather have a Cinnabon
*White Texas Sheet Cake- okay but I would rather have the most amazing Texas Sheet Cake ever
*Eileen's famous rice krispy treats- My dear friend Eileen came to visit!! Pretty much as soon as she landed in Seattle I went to the grocery store to buy the ingredients for her famous treats. Amazing as always.
