In honor of Thanksgiving (this post was originally posted on Thanksgiving :) ), I have to say that one of the things I am most grateful for is my mother. She has always been there for me whenever I needed her to either pray, lend an ear or give out hugs. The other thing that I can always seem to remember that we would do together was make cookies. This is one of the recipes we made together all the time, and still do, and hope that (when you make it in your home) you will be reminded of all those things that you are most grateful for. :)
Please note that this recipe is fish and soy-free (if you use all soy-free ingredients) and nut-free if you don't add any. :)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 Cups quick oats or old fashioned oats

Have fun making this recipe your own! :)
