Westchester Weekend Cooking
Had a great time baking/cooking with my friend Michelle and our kids in Westchester over the weekend. We decided to take some classic recipes; brownies, oatmeal cookies, macaroons and hummus and amp up the nutrition by adding in and swapping out various ingredients. In our hummus we added sweet potatoes, in our brownies and oatmeal cookies we used coconut oil instead of butter, and our macaroons were based on a raw food recipe. So, instead of baking we just chilled the batter in the freezer. We also made a sandwich with ratatouille and goat cheese and an amazing bean dip. Four kids two moms and a lot of delicious food!
