I know that’s a bold statement. I am no great Friend of the Kitchen, let me tell you, yet I still find time to make these cookies every December, year after year. Since I was in elementary school in fact…I think they were in a class cookbook or something. Mr Rae calls these his Kryptonite. And he doesn’t even really like sweets that much. My kids love them. I eat them five at a time (see picture below).
These are no-bake so they take almost no time, and they are seriously delicious. Something about the combination of white chocolate and peanut butter, and then the crispy rice krispies, mini marshmallows, and peanuts inside. Ground Control to Major Yum. You can use a microwave to melt…
Photographic Proof. Exhibit A:
Warning: this post is about food and not at all about sewing (I know, right? where did THAT come from?)
On Monday, in a not entirely unprecedented flurry of domesticity I decided to make whole wheat crackers. I know, strange. I’m not a huge cook, although baking is a little more up my alley. But you’re still thinking, crackers? Let’s just say my kids (yes, both of them) eat about a metric ton of crackers each week and as most store-bought crackers have next to no nutritional merit I’ve been looking for a heathier replacement. Also: I always keep a box of flaxseed meal in the house and this seemed like a decent way to get it into our bodies where it could do some…
Thanks for all the good suggestions on dealing with the lack of plastic bags…I think I’m going to go without in a few rooms, use a brown bag in a few other rooms, and look into some of the recycled options for the kitchen. I also bought a tumbler composter on Craigslist this week so we’re starting that up too.
And now for something completely different…food! I do read a few baking/foodie blogs here and there (I love Orangette) although I do admit to feeling completely inept by comparison. But every once in awhile I can redeem myself:
This is one of my fave easy desserts. I happen to be a pretty big Nigella fan and this recipe is from Forever…
