So, I’ve told you about my cookbook. I hope you are as excited as I am. Maybe you’ll even buy a copy, or send one to a friend..or your sister, or that distant aunt you never visit. You know, they might like it too.
But I’ve been neglecting you, my long-time readers, friends and loyal commenters. So I figured, before I leave on Wednesday for a long awaited trip to California for the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, I had better leave you with something delicious.
I spent a good deal of the weekend playing with this:
‘Cause that is my therapy, besides making bacon filled desserts that is.
Also there was this:
Let’s all take a minute to say what we’re really thinking, “Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!”
I knew it. Who doesn’t love a baby bunny!
But then what I really wanted to do after all the snatches, box jumps, running, back squats and overhead walking lunges around the track (my butt is dying right now) was make dessert. Something portable, in case I need to import them into the US on our flight on Wednesday. You know, cause they don’t really feed you anymore so much as stave off the hangry for a few minutes with “pretzel bites” or whatnot.
In any case, I had a bunch of black plantains hanging around and I can only eat so many a night, which meant I needed to get rid of them. I just so happened to have been thinking of making a “starch based” baked good for a few weeks now. I had thought sweet potato brownies would be good, but now I had plantains to get rid of. So I figured cookies would be a fit in my purse, right? Bingo.
So I made you these chocolate chip plantain cookies! No big.
And with that I’ll see you in a few days! If you see me in Carson City, throw me a wave!
