Off to See the Wizard

I don’t know how we managed

but with a bit of magic & some finagling

we packed our house into





& a trailer

I would say that is not too shabby — forget magic — this was all thanks to the maneuvering & muscles of Dave, dad[IL], best friend Dylan & our wonderful neighbor Sonny.  Great job & THANK YOU.


As we leave Utah this morning, I leave you with one of my favorite autumn cookies.  I am pretty proud of this recipe — not to mention the thumbs up from the guy who doesn’t care for oatmeal cookies or pumpkin.

[Happy Moving Day]Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

~16 cookies

  • 1 C Spelt Flour
  • 2/3 C Oats
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg


  • 1/3 C Brown Rice Syrup
  • 1/3 C Maple Syrup
  • 1/3 C Grapeseed Oil
  • ½ C Pumpkin puree
  • ½ tsp Vanilla
  • ½ T ground Flaxseeds

Combine in a separate bowl.


Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix.

Fold in ¼ C dark vegan chocolate & ¼ C raisins, optional.

Chill batter in the fridge for ~10 minutes.

Drop by the tablespoonful onto a cookie sheet.


Bake 16 minutes.

Cool on parchment paper on a wire cooling rack.


We’ll see you when we get to AZ !
