Healthy Lactation Cookies
I adapted my favorite healthy snacking cookie into a cookie recipe that will help nursing mamas boost/maintain their milk supply. The Brewer’s yeast is the main active ingredient that make this a “lactation” cookie. You can barely taste it. Feel free to omit it if you’re looking for a delicious healthy cookie recipe and don’t need the milk boost :)
Vietnamese Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps (Sous Vide/Slow Cooker)
A humble cut of pork shoulder gets an umami-rich marinade and a 24-hour soak in the sous vide which renders it meltingly tender. The pork literally falls apart with the prod of a fork. It then gets sprinkled with brown sugar and blasted under the broiler to mimic that charred sweetness reminiscent of true Vietnamese street food eats. BYO little red stool.
