Stoneware Pans

It’s been a while since we touched on our kitchen tool topic.  And just recently, we had someone ask what kind of pan we used in our ginger snaps recipe.  So it must be time to throw up some links and information on another tool we wouldn’t be without in our kitchen (in fact, we recently just added another one).

Banana Cookies

If you like banana bread, this is a great cookie recipe to try.  Instead of eating a whole piece of bread, just have a couple of banana cookies.  Same satisfaction and great taste for a quick snack. In case you are wondering why the bananas in the picture are black, it is because sometimes I don’t eat all of my bananas when I should.

One has a zesty orange flavor and the other hazelnut/chocolate.  Both taste wonderful.  I had a hard time choosing which I liked best.  🙂

Karen’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

What? Chocolate Chip Cookies for us paleo/primal eaters?? Yes, you read correctly!  Chocolate Chip Cookies!  One of my very favorite things to eat.  So, of course I had to find an alternative recipe to the regular one I tried so hard to master and luckily, I got a winner on my first attempt!   As a side note, did you know that the Chocolate Chip Cookie was invented by accident in the early 1930s?  Who knew?  I love how “mistakes” can turn into something wonderful.  Don’t forget that.  Okay, onward…
