One week without postings… I miss porting in the blog, but last week I was just not in the mood for neither cooking nor eating much. I had such a bad episode of sinus and ear infections, that food literally lost it taste for a few days. I was so congested that I could not smell or taste well the food I made. And this does not help when you like to cook and is already feeling tired with all the viruses going on inside your body.
Oh well, a week of antibiotics later and I am feeling much better! Which is good, because we are going to spend the weekend at the beach and I definitely want to be feeling good then.
Not much cooking, but Matheus and I managed to make some cookies last week. It’s been a while since we did a weekly treat for the class, so he wanted to make cookies and take to school to share with his friends.
It seems that everybody’s favorite there is chocolate chip cookies, so that is what he chose.
Bev’s Chocolate Chip Cookies is my favorite recipe for this kind of cookies. I love oatmeal and chocolate, put the two together and it cannot end in something bad! This cookies are healthier the other versions, but just as good, we all love it at home, and it was also a big success at school! Matheus came home all happy telling me all his friends liked the cookies too!!

Bev's Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 c rolled oats
1 c whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c butter -- softened
1/4 c canola oil
1/3 c sugar
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 c chocolate chips

Add dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Stir in chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cookies are firm around the edges and golden on top. makes 30 small cookies.
