Bunches of Thanks

Hello Friends, thanks for visiting our blog.  It’s taken us a whole month but we are finally settled in our apartment and can start writing out thank you cards. We plan on keeping this blog updated with fun things that goes on in our lives.

We just want to say “Thanks” to all those who was part of our wedding day in anyway. We appreciate all the support for our marriage.

Just in case you missed out on the day… don’t worry! Our friend, Scott Jarvie at Jarvie Digital did an awesome job by capturing the entire day. To see images from the entire day just click on the wedding link in the menu or click on the links below to navigate to the page you want:

Here are some quick highlights of the day:

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

No sugar added, no flour, no egg cookies! But don’t let that deceive you… these are really good! Try them before you judge them. They are puffy little cookies.

Serving Size

  • 16 cookies

Preheat Oven

  • 350 degrees F


  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 cup applesauce (natural, no sugar added)
  • 1/4 cup oil (optional)
  • 1/2 raisin or crasins (or mix it up)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking power
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  1. First mash the bananas really well if you haven’t done so already
  2. Add 1 cup of apple sauce
  3. Add oil if desired, I don’t really think it makes a difference
  4. Add raisin or crasins, vanilla, cinnamon, baking power, and baking soda.
  5. Mix well
  6. Then add oats, beat until cookie dough is light and very fluffy. (~5 Minutes in a kitchen aid)
  7. Make into about 2 inch round cookies on a greased cookie sheet. Make sure to flatten the cookie because the cookies don’t flatten in the oven.

Oatmeal Flour Snickerdoodle Cookies

Today I really wanted to eat cookies but I didn’t want to make it out of flour and I really wanted to see if I could make cookies out of oatmeal flour. Guess what?!? It worked!

Preheat Oven

  • 400 degrees F


  • 4 cups of oats
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar (You can put less if you want to)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Additional 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Blend out the oats in a blender until you get a flour texture and measure out 2 3/4 cup of the oat flour
  2. Cream the oil and sugar together and add two eggs
  3. Stir together the 2 3/4 cup oat flour, 2 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp baking soda, and 1/4 tsp salt
  4. Mix the liquids with the flour mixture
  5. Roll dough into quarter inch balls
  6. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl
  7. Roll cookie balls in the sugar and cinnamon mixture
  8. Place on baking sheet
  9. Bake @ 400 degree F for 10 minutes
  10. Let the cookie cool before you eat it or else it will fall apart!
