I’ve been mussing about in the kitchen quite a bit lately, and thought i should share some of my successful recipes with you.
Yummy Cookie Things That I Sort Of Made Up
Preheat the oven! 350.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
almost 1 cup wheat germ (about 1/2 inch from the top of the measuring cup)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Blend these until it looks like a pile of healthy nutrition. Then make a depression in the middle and add:
large glop of peanut butter (maybe around 1/2 cup?)
1 stick softened butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
several squirts of vanilla extract
Start mashing these around until it starts looking uniform. If it is too dry, add:
and maybe 2 tblsp vegetable oil (if it’s still too dry). It shouldn’t stick to the bowl much, and be nicely massive.
Add about 1/2 cup of coconut, and mix again.
Roll with your hands into little balls (about 1 inch in diameter) and bake for about 12 minutes, until the top looks dry. These are so small and yummy that they’re hard to stop eating, so beware! Also, i baked some extra dough in the bottom of a pie pan and it made an excellent cheesecake crust.
Really Delicious Bok Choy Salad
1/2 cup vinegar (my recipe said red wine vinegar, but i used apple cider because that’s what we had)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white sugar (this seemed like a lot to me. Maybe less would be better.)
2 tblsp soy sauce
Mix and set aside.
1 head bok choy
Wash and shred. The white stems are good, too, but i used mostly the leaves.
The recipe called for green onions, but i didn’t add any.
1.5 cup chow mein noodles (the recipe called for 2 packages of dry ramen, which i think would be better)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Stir-fry in a little oil for a few minutes, until crunchy and flavorful. Careful to keep stirring or it burns!
Add the crunchies to the salad, and toss with the dressing. Serve immediately.
