Caught you off guard there, didn't I?
Yes, as mentioned briefly in my last (and very belated) post, our little bundle of joy is here. Baby G is rockin' it so far. We love him to bits. So much so that, after our nursing partnership turned into more of an angry one-sided relationship, I have dedicated much of my days to making "magic Mommy Juice" by exclusively pumping (EPing) and feeding it to our little man via bottle. It's great, because Hubs gets to help!

I swear, there's a recipe in this post.
|See?? I swear this isn't all about baby!!|
Apparently the "magic" ingredients are oatmeal (I've been eating a huge bowl every morning), flax, and brewer's yeast. I've used flax before as an egg substitute, so that was nothing new. I'd never seen brewer's yeast before, but after some help from a Bulk Barn associate, I got my hands on some. I used the max amount called for in the recipe (4 Tbsp, or 1/4 cup); it sort of made the cookies taste malted. Reminded me of an oatmeal stout I had once. Not a bad thing!!
