>Oatmeal as a delivery system

>Cooking is a passion of mine.  I like to try recipes, watch cooking shows and demonstrations, and invent my own gastronomic creations.

I believe cooking is more than making food to shove down a throat….much more!  Cooking is about creating flavors and sensations, experiences and memories….at least it should be about some of that. The food should nourish body, mind and spirit.

One of my recipes is a good example of that; healthy and at the same time satisfying all the things a person anticipates when they introduce something edible to their body.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

4 Sticks butter or margarine softened, 4 eggs beaten, 1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy), 2 1/2 cups firm packed dark brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 3 c flour (whole wheat – 2c white flour – 1 c), 6 cups rolled oats, 2 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cloves, 1 tsp dried ginger, 2 c raisins or other dried fruit, chips (chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, white chocolate or combination)

Blend sugar, butter ’til creamy.  Add peanut butter, blend some more. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Combine flours, Baking Soda, spices, stir into sugar/butter mixture, add remaining ingredients. Spoon or hand-roll and place 1-2 inches apart on slightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Cool on rack completely before storing.

Healthy, tasty, and easy to make.   Batter can be made ahead of time, rolled in wax paper and kept in the freezer for those times when you just want to slice off some batter and bake some cookies.  Defrost it first to insure even cooking.

Anyway, that’s an example of my recipe writing skill.  Somebody give it a try and let me know what you think,
So for today, Fifty Five Is The New Oatmeal as a delivery system….healthy snacking = healthy life.
