Seriously after devouring 3 of these not so small roast dinner spring rolls made me contemplate why I haven’t been putting leftover Sunday dinners into spring roll wrappers until now. It’s definitely a great way to revitalize leftovers. Continue ReadingPin It
Best thing about spicy ginger oatmeal cookies? They’re like an oatmeal cookie but without those deceitful raisins that portray themselves as chocolate chips. The reason people have trust issues!
Soft, chewy and comforting like an traditional oatmeal cookie but with a dark, spicy and more ‘grown up’ flavour complexity like a ginger nut biscuits.
My preference for ginger cookies are for them to be laden with ginger. To the extent that the flavour is spicy yet warming. For these cookies I did not hold back on the ginger. 2 types of ginger lace these spicy ginger oatmeal cookies, ground ginger and stem ginger in fairly larger than usual amounts. Don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of ginger in these cookies, the ore ginger the better and PLUS ginger is good for you.
Ginger is used in abundance in my house and is usually always the first thing we grab when we are feeling nauseous or have a cold. So in a way these cookies are perfect for helping to kick that cold to the curb or to warm you up on a cold autumnal day.
I eat grapes by the bunches. And sometimes I sit there and polish off a whole packet quite easily without realising. Red grapes that are crisp, juicy and cold.I seriously fail to understand why grapes are used much more in baking. Apart from roasted grapes, which is great with mascarpone and crumbled amaretti and the odd roasted grape tart or jam, baking with grapes is few and far between. Even with the simplicity of this simple and rustic Shloer plum grape galette, it has convinced me that grapes should be used more often in baking.
If you are one of those people who hasn’t baked with grapes before, start with my Shloer plum grape galette, because your’e seriously missing out. Which is a shame because sticking grapes into your baked goods adds a slight musky flavour, like wine which helps round off fruity and sharp flavours.
