Seems we are on to some sort of theme for the month of April with this cooking group.
“Love it or Hate it”
Luckily, so far, I happen to belong to the “love it” team. Coconut, what’s not to like? This seemed like the sweetest little recipe, something to whip up while finishing my final paper for my AODA class and organizing the volunteer reception for our district’s volunteers (it’s National Volunteer Week). I finally got to it yesterday. It WAS so simple and pretty to whisk up the ingredients.The description that Dorie wrote in the cookbook made me want to brew some tea and invite my friends over to chat while nibbling on these delectables. Too bad things seem to be so crazy this week that I wasn’t even sure I would have time to try one while flying out the door. I love the smell of coconut, although I wasn’t able to find unsweetened for this recipe but I think the sweetened worked just fine in this case.
I was too lazy to buy another mini muffin tin, as mine bit the dust in a “let’s make our own crayons” fiasco. I simply bought mini muffin cups and filled them with the batter and placed them on a cookie sheet, then popped them in the oven. This worked really well!
Seventeen minutes later just as Dorie promised, these babies were ready! The verdict? Both Hannah and Eli gobbled them up, Eli claiming they were the best of the best (they don’t have access to vast amounts of sugar). Bob had to be prodded to attempt a bite (he plays for the other team) and pronounced them “good”. If you know Bob, you know he means “crappy” but you can’t win them all.
Sadly for next week’s post I may need to trade my jersey in for the opponent’s colors. Lamb, love it or hate it………………………stay tuned.
