Bite Size Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies


Lactation cookies are a great way to increase breast milk while satisfying a sweet tooth craving. I love these cookies! They are super good and super good for you. You can make the cookies bigger then what I did but bite size works better with a 2 year old who wants the cookies. It's just much easier to hide. The cookies are fine to eat even when you are not breast feeding, my husband and daughter both enjoy the cookies.This recipe makes a LOT of cookies.

Warning: These cookies are GOOD! You might just eating all of them in one sitting.

Still moving

I am still in the mist of moving everything. You never believe the junk you keep until you moved. As of last month we no longer have cable. The husband and I found out that between the 3 of us (Husband, Hannah and I), Hannah is the only one who watches any TV. We were paying about $100 a month for just cable and internet. Not worth just one person watching TV and only on one channel (Treehouse). We have decied to get Netflix to see how that goes. So far no complain. I finally set up the Wii with Netflix so we no longer can only watch on the Ipad.

My TV do not look like that in real life.
