C is for Cookie
I made Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar for a lovely vegan potluck at Kit and Emily's. I think it must have been around the holidays last year or possibly Mardi Gras. Anyway, I still think of them fondly. I need to make more soon. They are chocolaty with a hint of cayenne....my kind of cookie! Sorry, I think I might have lost the pictures in the great hard drive demise.
Common Ground Co-op makes/sells Josie's favorite, vegan molasses cookies, and I need to find a recipe for them.
Speaking of baking, check out Jack Norris RD's blog post about trans fat. He explains hydrogenation very well. Rob is buying oils to make our own bar soup and his own shaving cream so we've been discussing hydrogenation and fractionated oils a lot lately. When we make soap, we obviously don't have to worry about ingesting them. We've avoided hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils in food we eat for a long time, but it is always good to keep up to date on fats.
