Today was one of those days that had awesome potential (snow day!), but I got stuck being everywhere but in the present. And kept using the tone of voice with Phillip that I hate hearing from myself.

We made oatcakes together, which was sort of half successful. I got the recipe from a friend, and hers were awesome. Mine aren't. Maybe mine weren't because Phillip and I were struggling to work together. Or maybe because I left out the coconut so Adam would be able to eat them. Either way, I'll let you know when I get the recipe perfected. Good night!


  1. Will you post her recipe or will you post the version you perfect on your own? I can't wait to try it too! :)

  2. Heck, I can post both! Merry Christmas, Teresa. :) I'll give you hers to tide you over until I get around to perfection. It might take awhile.

    Cream 2 cups margarine (of course, I used butter) and 1 1/4 cups brown sugar. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Mix together: 2 cups flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup oats, 1/2 cup bran, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup flax seeds, 1 cup coconut. Add dry mix to butter mix and mix well. Press dough into 1/2 inch thickness in 2-3 inch diameter rounds. Add more oats if dough is too sticky. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes on a baking stone; if using a regular cookie sheet, flip after 7 minutes. Enjoy!

    They look pretty well made in that picture and the recipe you just posted sounds delicious. I love oatcakes. I might just have to try this one out. Hope you had a good snowday. Vickie
