Winter Break Mission: Put a Dent in Recipe Making!!!
i always have 2309423094830 recipes I want to try, so my goal over winter break has been to put a dent in that list and whip up some tasty treats.
First on the list-raw gingerbread!!
Spotted: Katie and Averie getting it on with raw gingerbread men! I just had to join in on the action!
.75c raw almonds
1/4 tsp each ground ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg
tiny pinch sea salt
1/4 vanilla extract
Add everything to your food processer (or vita-mix if you're cool like that)
Then I rolled it out between two sheets of parchament paper
and cut it out with cookie cutters!
The gingerbread, poodle and scottish terrier presses just weren't cutting it (pun intneded) so I stuck to good ol' stars-and then succumbed to balls.
Perfect snacks while doing some PLEASURE READING!!
(yes, when I do not have classes, I still read about nutrition/fitness. "Hungry gene" was very good-discussing the pitfalls of current obesity treatment and the need for continued research. I found it fascinating. "What Einstein Told His Cook 2"=an entire semester of food science in one book. A good refresher)
Have a great Wednesday, and come back on Friday for another Raw Recipe!!
