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!
