- I want to make peanut butter cookies. I want to add some ground flax seeds into them because my mother is convinced that flax seeds are awful and horrendous and so forth (bad experience in the past). But I don't know how much I should add. I never know how much flax to add into anything. I know that there are no for sure numbers about how much of the omegas we need each day, but is there some sort of ball park? Like, a teaspoon of ground flax per day is good? Or 8 tablespoons? I really have no clue.
- My dear sweet mother, who really is very supportive of me, is making a pot roast for dinner tomorrow. She almost always eats my vegan food, uses my soymilk for her cereal, adapts all her muffin, pancake, biscuit, etc. recipes so that I can eat them. She's been wonderful about it, so I'm not going to put on a huge show about her pot roast. However, I need to make something for me. My brother and his girlfriend, also huge omnis, are coming over for dinner (hence the pot roast) and I want to make something that they might actually want to try. I have a cup of cooked quinoa that I need to do something with, and some mushrooms. I am making peanut butter cookies and chocolate pudding for dessert, but am at a loss for actual dinner. I was thinking of cutting up some red potatoes and frying them with garlic and spices and adding the quinoa, but that's where my ideas end.
Edit: This is the recipe for the cookies that I'm making -
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups unbleached flour
And I was thinking about replacing half of the maple syrup with brown sugar.
