I kind of have a thing for spicy and sweet paired together. I’ve posted recipes for spicy chocolate almonds and double dark chocolate chipotle cookies to name a few.
Earlier this week I posted a salty and sweet popcorn. While salty and sweet is a great combo, I think I may like spicy and sweet even more.
The idea for this particular cookie came from a show. I can’t really remember which one, the boys and I watch our share of Food Network and the Cooking Channel!
For many the beginning of autumn means pumpkin spice in everything. I’m more simple, plain old cinnamon is fine by me. The smell of apples and cinnamon. Pumpkin and cinnamon. Chocolate and cinnamon.
Okay, I might have a little addiction! But really, what’s the harm in a little more cinnamon?!
What a crazy month it has been. Once again time has flown by so quickly, I can’t believe it is already the beginning of another month. That brings us to another In My Kitchen post, with Maureen over at Orgasmic Chef hosting this monthly roundup as she continues to heal from back surgery.
In our house August was all about back to school. Okay, maybe it was more exciting for me than the kids! This year was our second annual trip to the mountains the last weekend before school starts. We stayed with Oma and Opa and also went camping for one night.
So in our outdoor kitchen we made grits with smoked sausage, zucchini and onions. It’s always a challenge coming up with a dinner to cook over a camp stove that will handle being packed in a backpack and staying there for over six hours while we hike and setup camp. We stepped up our game this time by also packing a box of wine, best thing invented ever (so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but boy did it make the trip better).
