dianasaur's pumpkin oatmeal choco-chip cookies

Diana is another food blogger in this area, south of Seattle, and I love her food and photos. She posted a recipe for these cookies the other day and I just had to try them out. I had some wonderful helper-beans in the kitchen--they measured, stirred, and ate (a lot)!

I went by her recipe and also added a pinch of salt, some powdered ginger, and molasses. The chocolate I used was over 60% (and darned delicious). I did find the dough really stiff for some reason and couldn't add all of the oatmeal called for.

A hit all round, and friends declared so, too.

These were luscious! More from Green Smoothie Revolution...

All these had were three persimmons, one banana, and a bunch of spinach, to which I also added a couple of splashes of apple cider.

Blend, eat with a spoon, and enjoy.

bloody mary (smoothie, that is)

Still on a veggie-full green smoothie kick--this one had tons of flavor (though I did like the creaminess the avocado added in yesterday's--next time I do this one, I'll throw in an avocado as well).

As with yesterday's, this Bloody Mary was adapted from Green Smoothie Revolution.

You'll need:
  • kale
  • 1/2 lemon, peeled and seeded
  • chia seeds
  • flaxseed meal
  • garlic
  • fresh seaweed
  • 1/2 cuke
  • fresh parsley
  • 3 stalks celery
  • Roma tomatoes
  • water
  • cayenne pepper
Do this:

Blend and drink!
