The cookies above are delicious and easy to make. Plus, if you can believe it, they are actually GOOD FOR YOU. Whole wheat flour, oats, chocolate…hmm, well you get the picture.
Heady with vanilla and studded with dark chocolate chips, my favorite part of this cake is actually the golden crust which seems extra buttery and rich. I like that this cake isn’t fussy and it totally suits my mom’s personality.
I really was in the mood for ginger and decided that adding dried ginger wouldn’t be enough – so I threw in some diced candied ginger as well, along with some dried cranberries because sometimes I just want to shove a bunch of things in my baked goods.
Last week, I wanted to make something creamy and comforting with what vegetables I had on hand: 2 different types of carrots (one yellow, one orange) and a head of cauliflower. Soup would have been the obvious choice, but I wanted something a bit more unusual. These “creamed” vegetables were the result.
