Pumpkin Spice Cookies

It seems that I have been obsessed with Pumpkin Spice everything this week... This is a recipe I have been playing with in my head, that I finally had the opportunity to execute yesterday, and they were a success! These cookies taste just like bite sized pumpkin pies. Perfect for an autumn treat, or a snack with coffee or tea. 


Pumpkin Spice Cookies


Ingredients:



1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

1 Cup Quick Oats

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/3 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Tbsp Pumpkin Spice

1 tsp Vanilla

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 1/2 Cup Canned Pumpkin

2 Tbsp Flax Seed

1/2 Cup Dried Currants

Instructions:

In a large bowl, mix together Flour, Oats, Baking Soda, Sugars, Flax, and Pumpkin Spice.

Add Pumpkin, Vanilla and Oil and mix until well blended. 

Stir in the dried currants. 

Roll dough into small balls (about 1 Tbsp of dough each)

Place on non-stick baking sheet and push down with the flat-side of a fork (so as to make a cross hatch pattern on the dough)

Bake at 350' for 10 minutes (or until bottom of cookies are golden brown)

Enjoy!

A Lesson to Military Wives

Today I was writing about how lucky I am to be surrounded by so many supportive people, and it got me thinking. When I agreed to marry my now-husband, and move away from our family and friends, to live the military life, I didn't know what to expect. It was a big change, I was excited to be moving somewhere new with my husband and starting our family together; on the other hand, I was moving away from my support system, my family, my friends, my job. Everything I had spent twenty-five years growing with, that was once just a quick walk or drive down the road, was now a long drive down several highways, and a quick phone call away. That's scary, but do you know what? I am so happy I took that leap of faith with my husband. 
I love our life where we are, in our home, with our own little family, with our new friends, in a new town - this is our life. This is not to say I don't miss our friends and family back in our hometown, because I do, but I make the most of what is give…

Coconut Baked Tofu

Coconut Crusted Tofu is hands-down, my favourite way to enjoy tofu. I used to be a ‘tofu-hater’ until I tried fried Coconut Tofu for the first time, and since then, I have played with a recipe until I created what is now my go-to favourite for Tofu night. Here is my recipe for Coconut Baked Tofu:

Instructions: Cut tofu into cubes or rectangles.
Press tofu between paper towels to squeeze out water. 
Mix the Soy Sauce, Chili Sauce, Lime Juice, Brown Sugar, and Water, in a shallow container.
Add tofu and ensure that each piece is sitting in the marinade. 
Let sit for 1-2 hours, flipping halfway to ensure both sides soak up flavour.

Preheat oven to 350’
In a small bowl, mix together Corn Starch, Flour, Baking Soda and Cold Water. 
In another bowl, mix t…

Unplugged

Some of you will start reading this post and think 'yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before.'  but I encourage you to really read through what I have to say. Maybe I am just another person telling you about the perils of technology, but I learned a lot today, and even had a couple "ah-ha!" moments, and I really think a lot of people could benefit from this too. 
As much as I hate to admit it, I am on my phone way too much. To the point that if I leave a room without my phone, I nearly feel like I am missing an appendage. I know I am not alone, in fact, I am willing to bet that the majority of the population under 30 feels the same way. I truly believe that our cell phones have become an addiction to some of us. So often I find myself in the middle of doing something, and then because I get a message notification on my phone, I open it up and then get sucked in to checking all of my other apps and social media accounts while I'm at it. I even bring my phone with …
