This week, I dared some friends to make a recipe that struck me as being a bit outside the box — strawberry leek quesadillas.¬† I invited them to write a guest blog post about the experience…stay tuned to see if they deliver the goods!
In the meantime, not to be left completely inside the box, the littlest chef and I made these Bacon Banana Cookies. If you’re a fan of¬†your sweet and your¬†salty in one¬†package, these are for you!
We are celebrating the Chinese/Lunar New Year tonight (more on that menu soon), so I am teaching the littlest chef about the symbolism in the shapes of foods eaten for the Chinese New Year.¬† These cookies are¬†not Asian by any stretch of the imagination, but they do use bananas, which are shaped like a smile. If eating these cookies makes us smile in the new year, the Chinese would definitely approve!
