Hi.

For the record, I’m still here. I’m just going through an insane two weeks. And while I’d much rather be posting nice bits for you all to enjoy, I busy doing more things than I care to list here.

Some moments are still the same, of course. And no matter how busy I am, just as wonderful.

Lunch in the kitchen, with my little man. Are you supposed to use plates with a 10 month old? Because they seem like they might be more trouble than they’re worth.

He LOVES the flaxseed pancakes I posted in September. Loves. And I’ve come up with an adaptation even better for babies. Make them as directed but use this flour combo (for more protein):

1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quinoa flour
1/2 cup ground flaxseed meal

Which makes them satisfy all sorts of good nutritional needs: whole grain, omega 3s, protein, etc. We eat them for breakfast too, with loads of butter and syrup of course. But Dashiell eats them any time. I made a bunch on the weekend and kept a few in the refrigerator for the week, plus froze half of the batter for later. They are the perfect finger food. Highly recommend.

More soon, promise.

    OK, sitting here, nursing e, hungry….. Decided to make these (the original recipe b/c i don’t have any quinoa flour) and they are freaking delicious!! i even put bananas in per your recommendation. This is going to be a regular over here….thank you!

    wow, adding these to our routine. we had been doing buckwheat crepes for a long while, and this is just the ticket for something new. and delicious. I have a TON of bulk quinoa — wonder if I could just grind it up? It’s what I do with flax.

    my niece would take the food off the plate and put it on her tray.

    For some reason, quinoa mentioned *anywhere* makes me thinks of you (that’s good!).

    And awww…sweet little pudgy hand…

    We’ve all had those weeks… hang in there! Thanks for sharing the recipe – I’m always looking for new, healthful ideas for my 16 month old twins.

    What a sweet boy and what joy to stop in the midst of insanity to have lunch with him! PS. Mine stared using plates around 18 months, I can’t imagine them handling them at 10!
