things to remember

Gluten free cookies are still cookies. I modified this recipe by using gluten free flours & melting the sugar and butter together before adding them to the flour. I also used a less expensive brand of chocolate, because it was in my pantry.

Do you recognize this man?

His name is Jon Snow and he’s the illegitimate son of Eddard Stark of Winterfell. I watched the all episodes from the first season of HBO show “Game Of Thrones” around Christmas. I have spent my spare time reading the rest of the “A Song of Ice & Fire” series. I’m only on the second book, but MAN is it good. Right now it’s totally beating Downton Abbey, which is still pretty good, but less cool because there is no MAGIC.

I took the first step in making a worthwhile homemade breakfast bar by making worthwhile homemade granola. I based it on this recipe. However, I used coconut fat instead of oil. I also added vanilla beans, flaxseed, dried coconut flakes, and only used raisins as fruit.

I also caught a cold this week. A Jamaican Toddy (which I may or may not have invented) made it better.

Jamaican Toddy Recipe

1 lime, squeezed
1 oz dark rum/light rum/spiced rum
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
1 oz honey
A few allspice berries
Hot water

1. Combine first 4 ingredients
2. Top with hot water
3. Enjoy
4. Go to bed early.

Some other thing’s I’ve been enjoying this non-winter (it’s been unseasonably warm) have been: Revenge, this amazing lip balm by Nuxe that my pal Whitney got me for Christmas, soaking my own beans (way more tasty), wedding planning, contemplating if jcrew is jumping the shark yet not finding an adequate sale section to fill the void, this blush from tarte (it’s plum scented), and this new poster that GB and I made. Also, don’t forget, it’s an election year. And, although the Susan G. Komen foundation reversed their decision regarding Planned Parenthood, PP could still use your support.
