After reading about how many vitamins and nutritions are in sweet potatoes, I went out and bought some!

I made Sweet potato casserole. Next will be baked sweet potato wedges with honey mustard sauce :)

Dearest Bloggers,

I am always trying to find ways to make good comfort foods healthier and guilt-free. My aunt gave me this recipe off of her oatmeal bag! With this oatmeal cookie recipe I used half the amount of butter, half the amount of sugar. Added flax seed, raisins, crushed walnuts. I coated the cookies with a thin thin layer of warmed hoeny before i put it in the oven to add a little bit of the sweetness back since i didnt put in much sugar. I also used cracked oats and rolled oats so it would be softer. The flax seed gives it a buttery nut flavor and its really good for you!

Enjoy :)
