Last week my good old friend left Vancouver and headed back to the South. The night before she left, I decided to make some cookies for her to take back on the plane. If she had to leave the sunny and very spring-like Vancouver weather for the snowed in streets of Durham NC, she might as well take something nice for the harried trip home. She, like myself, appreciates the sweet and the salty together in one bite and these oatmeal cookies turned out to be pretty delicious. I was initially worried about using butterscotch chips but the salt really helped to tame that kid-friendly flavour into something almost sophisticated. Well, maybe not sophisticated, but something that at least goes well with coffee or a double-strength earl grey tea. Crispy, salty and sweet, these oatmeal cookies turned out quite tasty. You can get the recipe over at Poppytalk.

Interested in a little winter libation? How ’bout sneaking over to ReadyMade and checking out my Olympic spirits? A little Maple Leaf Sour to warm you up while watching all that snow and ice on television? I think so. Make mine a double!
Blog Aid Recipes for: Haiti Cookbook update:
Just this very second, I got a knock from Canada Post at my door. Inside of the box was the Blog Aid cookbook. After tearing up the packaging, I’m just stunned at how wonderful the book looks and I’m already drooling over the recipes. The cookbook sales were spectacular and all told $47,166 was raised and sent to Haiti!! So a big thank you to everyone who bought a copy. You can find out more about this project here.
