    I am keeping this short since we are trying to minimize our indoor time on this trip. We have prepared cookies for you today, but before we give you the recipe I just wanted thank you for your warming thoughts on our last post about quitting my job. You repetably blow my mind with your kindness and encouragement. I can t thank you enough for that. Would it be possible to substitute flaxseed meal or oat bran instead of the buckwheat flour? I think so but happy to hear any advice on that kind of substitution. Merci!


    This mouthwatering recipe sticks to the basics — old-fashioned oats, butter, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract — but then adds a cup of crystallized ginger to the mix, resulting in one superbly revamped classic. Do Fast Food Condiment Packets Ever Expire?
