Game Day Baked Goods

And by game day, I mean Ohio State vs anyone.

Never underestimate a food manufacturer’s test kitchen. You need not use the brand names, but the following recipes are all winners, as was the team on Saturday. I sent the photo out Saturday – now recipes to match. The links to each are below.

**As a special note – our family sympathies are with the family of the Ohio State player who recently lost his life. It’s a terrible tragedy.

Cookies…Yeah, That Kind of Cold

There's only one respite from the polar vortex, and I mean inside or out. I've got to be in front of a warm oven. That probably explains why I baked the whole batch of rugelach (like a Jewish croissant cookie) instead if saving half for later.

We also made these cookies in the cooking class I taught this week. The food processor dough is so easy, we made two Middle Eastern salads and the fixins for an Israeli inspired sandwich.

Sub mini chips for the walnuts. You'll thank me.

Cookies…By Popular Demand!

For goodness sake, I tried to give you greens (see previous post) y'all only want cookies. Fine! I celebrated the March snowstorm making agave oatmeal chocolate chip. Mostly I wanted to use the agave that was sitting in the pantry for a while. The best way to get inspiration is to try to use up an ingredient.

Here's what I learned about agave. It has about the same number of calories as granulated sugar, it's sweeter, so some people use less depending on the usage, and it has a lower glycemic index as measured by the current standard.

Here's what I learned about your cooking preferences. Baked good recipes will always be more popular than greens…I tried 🙂

The recipe is straight from the Dominos website. Cookies are on the sweeter side, especially since I subbed chocolate chips for the raisins.

And yes, good with milk, hot chocolate, tea, coffee and wine – B (and for breakfast)
