I had peanut butter, I had frozen bananas, I had oatmeal, I had raisins, and I wanted cookies. I just couldn't find the right recipe, so modified what I could find and came up with this one. The resulting cookies are pretty good, but are missing "something". I can't put my finger on it. If it was a savory recipe, I would say it needed more salt. Otherwise, I was pretty happy with them. They make a soft cookie with a good bite.
I cut this cookie recipe out of a magazine years ago, but have never made them, until now. They're very good, and not too labour-intensive if you buy the fruit already chopped. I modified the recipe slightly by adding the ginger. Also, the original called for shortening. I used butter.
This recipe caught my eye when it was posted in our local newspaper. We love cauliflower, but get bored with the usual "steamed with plastic cheese sauce" version I usually make out of laziness! This is delicious and easy to make. Also, we actually ate the leftovers the next day - unheard of with our usual version! (Note...I used more cheese than the recipe called for, just because we love cheese.)
I'm calling these "Kitchen Sink" cookies because they have pretty much everything BUT the kitchen sink in them! These should satisfy everybody's cookie preference, except maybe peanut butter, although it would be interesting to add that as well. I think this recipe would be fairly flexible as some of the ingredients can be either substituted or removed entirely, depending on your preference or what you have in your baking cupboard. They turn out soft and chewy.
This recipe was in our local newspaper and I had to try it right away! It was delicious and a big hit at the table! Then I looked on 'Zaar to compare it to others and discovered a few variations. I really liked this one, but might try a couple of the others for comparison purposes. This one is comfortably spicy. The cayenne pepper can be varied to your own preference. The chicken breast cubes are not marinated, but when cooked in the sauce, they are tender and juicy!
This has been a favourite of many a pot luck! It's a recipe that was given to me from someone, who got it from someone, who got it from someone.... There are quite a few similar recipes on 'Zaar, each with its own twist. Here's another one!
