It’s Friday, again, so let’s be fabulous. (The picture is to make us feel better about the snowy mess we just got in New Hampshire – Denise) (I like the bike. – MK)
I’ve found a solution to my breakfast woes — what to eat that has some protein to get me through the morning! It’s reverse dosas! I already eat hash browns daily, but they don’t last long enough to get me to lunch. This is PERFECT. Or, you know, pancakes.
A list of gluten-free snack foods — not entirely allergen-free, but a good start for thinking creatively.
It’s never too late for holiday-themed cookies, like these double-chocolate candy cane wonders. Bonus — candy canes should be cheap right now.
Here’s a great method for melting various varieties of chocolate all at once in a crock pot (depending on your dietary restrictions) for use in making candy or decorating cookies, rather than futzing around with double boilers.
In fact here’s a Vegan Orange Shortbread cookie recipe that looks fabulous, that you can drizzle the chocolate on. Can’t give you a new technique without a way to use it!
Also, I know I’m supposed to stop eating sweets after the holidays, but I need these Chili Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. You could just leave the nuts out if tree nuts are a problem for you.
For some reason I’ve been craving Spanakopita. Not sure why. I found this recipe, but it has tofu. I’d like to work one out that has a cheese replacement that’s not soy based. (Note from MK — I’ve used tofu-based “feta” in the past, and it’s not bad, so if you can have soy, this might be a good option.)
Remember, share some fun stuff with us! Also Denise got an Amazon gift card so if you have cookbooks you’d recommend please let us know!
