Shortbread Cookies

It's not even fall yet and baking is on my mind. I came across this recipe recently, it's one of my favorites. 
The walnuts and oat flour add a bit of nutrition: 

Oat Walnut Shortbread Cookies

1 stick of salted butter
1/3 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
½ cup of unbleached white flour
½ cup of oat flour
¼ cup ground walnuts

Preheat oven to 325.

In a mixer combine room temp. butter, sugar, vanilla until smooth.

Slowly add flours until just combined.

Roll into a log and freeze for 10 min.

Slice into 1 by 1 inch pieces.

Put on baking sheet about 1 inch apart on silpat or parchment paper. Pierce each one with a fork.

Bake for 17 minutes, don't let them brown too much.

Let cookie sheet rest on cooking rack for 10 minutes. 


They are also great drizzled with melted dark chocolate.

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.

The Happy Hausfrau

One of my favorite blogs to read is The Happy Hausfrau.
It chronicles the raising of kids post divorce.  While, I'm grateful
that I can't relate on a personal level, I love her posts about momdum.
She seems like a real survivor.  If you are looking for compelling reading,
check it out, you won't regret it.
