last week i read a book that made me pause,
look up and ask dw the most random questions,
prompted by the story,
but mainly because i wanted to hear his voice
and i wanted to know his answer
(fyi: no it’s not romantical to be boba fett,
even if skies are crossed on your behalf)
(and i also made dw croon love will tear us apart,
because i’m not familiar with the song
and it seemed SO IMPORTANT that the main protagonist loved it so much)
it’s been 3 days since i finished the book
and i’m still thinking about it
(it’s like i’m 15 again)
he always thinks about my questions,
treating each with the same reverence
for someone who likes to ask silly questions
it means so much that he doesn’t make me feel irreverent
one of the things i love so much about dw
is that he is game for anything
it’s never “do we have to?”
it’s always “sure, LET’S DO IT!”
during one of our early conversations,
it may have been our 4th date,
i mentioned to him that i was giving up meat for Lent
then i offhandedly said that if he
wanted to hang out during mealtimes
it’d be a good idea for him to give it up for 40 days
cus you know,
it’d be hard for me to watch him nibble on a steak
while i noshed on cauliflower
i didn’t seriously think he’d do it,
nor did i think he had to,
and most importantly, it wouldn’t have been a deal breaker
for me if he didn’t want to partake
but without blinking an eye
or skipping a beat
he said OK
and that was that
Blueberry Breakfast Cookies
*note: i am a stickler for breakfast. i’m not always good at eating breakfast but i know the importance of it. every sunday i try to make something for the week so to keep myself accountable i’m starting this Breakfast Series. i won’t be able to do it every week, and likely, there’ll be some weeks that are repeats but i’m hopeful that i’ll come up with delicious but wholesome treats for us to eat during the early hours of the day.
**note: blueberry season is over, sadly. early in the summer we went berry picking to make jam and well 22lbs is a lot of berries. we still have a bag left in the freezer from that adventure. you’ve been warned: there might be a few more blueberry treats coming up. any seasonal fruit will do in these cookies.
1 cup spelt flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup tahini
2 tbl lemon juice
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
Pre-heat oven to 400F
in food processor, combine dry ingredients and pulse a few times. add in the tahini, pulse until combined. add the lemon juice and maple syrup. the dough should feel moist and pinch together.
divide the dough into 4 equal parts, then divide each part in two, shape into flattened rounds. dot the top with a few blueberries, as many as you’d like.
place on baking sheet.
bake for 14 minutes
cool on sheet. will keep in tightly covered container at room temp for a few days, after which, put in fridge.

Love the ginger in these! And cookies are the perfect way to start any day. In these here parts, because our growing season is shorter (and starts later) I can still get massive boxes of freshly picked blueberries from my pal’s organic farm. Yippie!!
(Thanks for the shout out, lady!)
i am so jealous of that you can get blueberries still!
I always brood over small things – from a line in a book, or a character arc on a tv show…you’re so lucky to have someone to commiserate with. 🙂
These breakfast cookies are splendid!! (Great font choices too!)
Thank you for the mention! xo
yes, perfect word for what i do sometimes over the randomest of things: BROOD.
dw is awesome. What a guy! You are awesome too. I love your committment to breakfast, and can’t wait to read what else you bake up. These sound so good! Love the tahini in there! Smart, smart.
thank you sophie!
the tahini really does add something special to baked goods, this was my 2nd time using it and i like it a lot.
Blueberry beauties! Is your drizzle blueberry too?
yes! excellent catch. i had some leftover blueberry juice and decided to use that instead of water.
