After making the molasses cookies, know what I was woken up to the next morning?
The cat. Crying her face off.
I’m about 90% sure her cries were her saying “Mommy! Daddy! I was minding my own business pouncing on the counter and then there was a NOISE! And things FELL! I don’t like it!”
I finally brought her in because I had bad, bad visions of her licking some metal.
And on the subject of nuts…
I’m part bear, and so I’m preparing to hibernate for the winter. In addition to cookies I realized my bear belly needs nuts
(Do bears eat nuts? I feel like they do. And I bet if you gave them a cookie, they’d eat it. Science.)
I wanted to make spiced nuts for my husby and for myself.
He likes food so spicy it clears your sinuses. I’m preparing for winter by eating my weight in sugar. So I made two types.
For mine I stared at about 3438 recipes and realized they were all the same. You whisk an egg white with 1 T of water
Then stir in 4 c of nuts
With 1/2 c of sugar and some spices
Then you bake it at 200 or thereabouts for an hour, and you get this deliciousness
The husband was tricker. He wanted spice. I looked and looked for a recipe. I finally found a few different ones that called for butter, Worcestershire, and hot sauce.
Barely any spice. How could something with only good things end up so bland?
Anyone have any ideas on how to make some that’re really spicy? But, you know, good spicy. Not just “wow they dumped a bottle of cayenne in here” spicy.
