It’s a new year, which should mean a resolution to eat healthier. And, I have… somewhat. But, not because of a resolution… mostly due to a cold which has curbed my sweet tooth a bit. My husband and I are currently discussing whether organic is the way to go. Both of us are feeling a nudge to give it a try. We have enough local farms that I am sure we could buy meat somewhere locally… and raising our own chickens for meat may be an endeavor, soon. But, that’s a whole different subject.
Anyway, when it comes to food, it seems my family, (including myself), are just not content rotating the same handful of meals. In fact, I could probably fill a menu 3 months full of different recipes and that still wouldn’t be good enough; we are always looking to try something new. Sometimes, I wish we were content with a handful of meals; oh, what joy that would be! Other times I find it a joy to cook and try new things often. All I can say is, I am thankful for blogs, Pinterest, and simply search engines that help me prepare meals!
This recipe is more of a snack than a breakfast, but we ate them as breakfast cookies and they were a huge hit. They were very simple, too. You don’t even have to grease the muffin tins; simply pop them right out, if you use the silicone kind. You can get the “Famous flax n oat bar recipe” here.
This Pinterest recipe I tried on a night my husband was gone. The problem with trying new recipes with the kids, obviously, is that they simply may be a flop. Since this pasta dish contained both heavy cream and cheese, I was certain it would be a hit. However, it also had Rotel with green chiles, which apparently gives it a kick! The big girls still ate it, as long as I served it with this:
Personally, I liked the kick and thought it was delicious. Check out the recipe here!
