I’ve taken quite a break from the Tumblr world.  Mostly because of busy schedules, but also because I blog for work and that seems to take up most of the allotted blogging space in my brain.  I’ve decided to get back on track though, because, well, can’t one dream about being picked up by some big name blog person and then living on the mountainside, testing recipes and writing about that?  No one else does that? Oh…

Well here’s a few pictures of recent creations. It’s not a ton, but this is my slow approach to getting back in.

I believe a strong woman may be stronger than a man, particularly if she happens to have love in her heart. I guess a loving woman is indestructible.

Today I made up a recipe

…Because I really wanted to use mint from our farm in some cookies.  And I’ll potentially sell them at the market.  And I’ll potentially drop some off for my boys.

It went something like this:

-1 cup sugar

-1 cup mint leaves

-2.5 cups AP Flour

-1 teaspoon baking powder

-1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

- 1 tsp salt

-8 ounces butter

-4 ounces cream cheese

- 1 egg

I threw some of the sugar in a food processor with the mint to get it really finely chopped.  Beat the butter and cream cheese together, added the additional sugar, then the egg, followed by the mint/sugar mixture and finally the dry ingredients.  Freeze for about an hour, and then bake for about 15 minutes at 350.  

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed :)

Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying ‘yes’ begins things. Saying ‘yes’ is how things grow. Saying ‘yes’ leads to knowledge. ‘Yes’ is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.
