Things have been quiet around the blog for a good reason. On March 21, 2011, my husband and I met our new baby. We have a sweet little girl! I still can’t believe it. The transition has been challenging, amazingly difficult, wonderful and just such a blessing. I’ve had so much on my mind the past few weeks. Thinking about what I want from my life, what I want from my creative energy. I’m going through a big shift style-wise, and with what I want to spend my time on. Expect things to change around here over the next few months. I anticipate a surge in cooking and home type posts, and of course, I will write about my new adventures in motherhood. I am still sewing and knitting, but since my size is changing so much, most of these creative pursuits will be directed towards home or baby items.
Without further ado, I am learning about a whole new world. I found a recipe online for these cookies, which are basically oatmeal cookies with a nutritional boost from flax seed and brewer’s yeast, all designed to be delicious and improve the milk supply for a nursing mother. Basically, I think it’s an easy way to justify eating plates of cookies when I haven’t lost any baby weight yet. Never fear about the cookie’s name – they did not cause any of my family members to spontaneously lactate. I think not only does my photo look WAY better than the one with the recipe, my ingredients are also better. I used half whole wheat flour and added about 3/4 cup of chopped dried cherries. They really are fantastic. I searched long and far, and finally settled on Lewis Labs’ Brewer’s Yeast. Holy moly, this stuff is packed with nutrition! I will definitely be experimenting with it more in the future.
