Layout Challenges with FUN and PRIZES!

Hang it there everyone! Spring’s got to be coming soon, right!?!
I love plantains. Most restaurants serve them fried, but we all know how bad for you fried foods are. So, for me they have always been a guilty pleasure.
Aside from being yummy, plantains are really good for you. A whole medium plantain is only about 220 calories, loaded with vitamins A and C and while they are a starchy fruit they are very low in sugar.
Last night for dinner, I decided to try to bake the plantains in the same way that I bake our other veggies. For real- we bake our veggies almost every night. It’s just easy and there are so many different combinations that we never get bored (broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, squash, zucchini…just to name the main attractions!).
Lightly coat in coconut oil, lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper and put in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Heaven. I may have finished the pan.
What is one of your favorite easy dishes?

Yesterday afternoon, princess B and I were hanging around the house and B said she wanted a cookie. I’ve been trying to eat healthier, so I haven’t been buying cookies. But, I knew we had some chocolate chips in the pantry so I started digging to see what we could do.
I keep a pretty tight grocery budget- but I love that I could make my daughter a couple of dozen almost organic cookies and it probably cost me as much as a pack of brand name cookies at the grocery store. I have gradually moved to buying organic eggs, butter, sugar and flour. The chocolate chips aren’t organic, but we love our Toll House chips!
I modified the recipe on the bag to make it a bit healthier. One of my favorite go-to tricks is substituting Flax Meal for eggs. I also substituted whole wheat flour for half of the white flour. (Sorry Gluten free friends- we haven’t made that move yet). When you sub whole wheat flour in a recipe, you may find that you either have to reduce the amount of flour or add some liquid for the recipe to behave properly. I would start with the two cups of flour and if your recipe is too wet, add a bit more.
Here is the recipe I used:
1 tbs flax meal
3 tbs water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
Combine flax meal and water in small bowl or cup.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add flax meal and then egg, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
I love my Pampered Chef cookie sheets. I have never burned a cookie using them!
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Let us know if you make these, how they turn out. We froze most of them to have a treat for later too!
