Food and Blogging: The Series Continues

There is no interest in my sardine tacos, or my use of coffee as a spice. I asked several bloggers, to send me recipes; preferably easy to prepare, common ingredients, ethnic etc. In addition if I print the recipe, I'll plug your blog. Send recipes to me at the email address at my profile. I was going to print them all in one post, but I acquired too many. Political agreement doesn't matter. Atleast every month I'll continue this series. Leave comments about food, the blog, restaraunts etc. Everyone who sent recipes, will eventually have them published. I'm going in random order.

Today the recipe comes from Seattle based blogger Premium T.. Premium T.. has been known to share DVDs with Citizen K. T. focuses her blog on poetry and literature.

Now The Main Event

Big Foot Cookies

I developed this when I was an owner of a bakery
called "Two Tartes." There was a demand for a breakfast cookie
so this is the result. The ethnicity is decidedly American

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 T. vanilla

2 cups flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 t. salt
1 t. soda

2 cups crushed breakfast cereal -- I like to use Raisin Bran
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped

Cream sugars and butter, add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
Combine dry ingredients, add to sugar/butter mixture. Hands work great
for this stage of mixing! Add cereal, nuts and fruit. Again, mix with hands.

Make giant cookies using anywhere from a half-cup to a full-cup measure.
Bake at 365 degrees for about twenty minutes.

What do you serve with a breakfast cookie? I never heard of ther idea of a breakfast cookie before.

Nevin said...

Renegade Eye: What a great idea! I love cooking and being in the kitchen in general... it's sort of self therapy for me.... :) I will be looking forward to learning new receipts. Especially, international or fusion style cooking...

Another delicious sounding recipe Ren. Nice one!

T. said...

Thanks, Ren! (A nice surprise after a very trying day.)

And to answer your question: I wouldn't recommend a gin and tonic.:)

Here's my definition of a breakfast cookie:
1. The name given to a ridiculously large cookie that contains oats, fruit, possibly nuts, and is too large to qualify as dessert.
2. A euphemism for "dessert as breakfast."
3. Any dessert-like item consumed before 10am.
(ORIGIN late 20th century: from Seattlite biggus cookus extraordinarus.)

Interesting Recipe!

Madam Miaow said...

Ooh, I have to try your cookies.

I'm thinking about posting some of my staple recipes.

Droolingly yours,


Frank Partisan said...

Email me a recipe, eventually I will post it and plug your blog.

Premium-T: Thank you for sending that recipe.

Madam Miaow: I think everyone should visit Miaow's blog. Anna is a renaissance person.

I don't know why BBC allows someone so subversive, so much air time.

It took Premium T.'s cookies, to get you here.

Nevin: Send a recipe.

Jams: Are you a cook?

Desert Mystery: I'm not sure if interesting is the right word?

jams o donnell said...

I can cook Ren but not to any great standard. I'll have to send you my tofu satay (quourn and chicken work perfectly of course)

Nevin said...

Renegade Eye: I have sent you a Havuc Kofte (Carrot Rolls) recipe... From the book Sultan's kitchen written by: Ozcan Ozan.... I made this dish various times to my children. It's a huge hit! I have plenty other ideas for children's recipes if you wish....

Frank Partisan said...

Nevin: sounds great.

Jams: Shoot an email at the email address at my profile.

Wow it's been ages since I last visited this place :-)

It's so nice to get back in touch! I can see a hell of a lot going on here :-D I need to spend some time digging your archive.

Hi! I stumbled across your blog via my cousin Jae's. Sardine tacos are awesome! It's one of my husband's favorite dishes. I like it because it's both quick and healthy. The bigfoot cookie recipe you posted looks interesting. Maybe my husband and I will give it a try for some of our students. We'll probably use something like Lucky Charms though. I think our students will think that the Raisin Bran is a "too healthy" for them.

This looks like it might also be a good school lunch or work lunch. It's pretty close to a power bar.

nanc said...

nuttin' butter than dessert for breakfast!

in all my years i've NEVER heard of cooking ANYTHING at 365 degrees...strange but true.

Frank Partisan said...

ChelB: Welcome to this blog.

I voted for Jae, when he ran for the library board, here in Minneapolis.

Lohang: Great that you visited.

Ben Heine: Thank you for visiting.

Pagan: It's better than a Power Bar.

Nanc: Instead of cooking at 365,* try baking (LOL).

My oven would incinerate the cookies at 365.

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

I'm attempting to perfect a Moroccan Lamb with a home baked flat bread.

I've mastered the lamb but the bread is proving a struggle to get it just so.

Any bread advice?

Frank Partisan said...

Daniel H-G: I used to work in the baking industry.

There are some things, that can't be made at home. What is called in the US English muffins, can't be made at home, because of the need for precise temperature, proofing etc.

I would make couscous, soaked in the juices of the meat.

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

I'm with you on the couscous but never thought to soak it in the meat juice so it will be so!

Also, I've found out that one of our leading supermarkets over here does a fine flat bread for a mere £1.49 so I may use that.

T. said...

In response to 365 -- of course, each oven is a little different when it comes to heat. Mine is a bit cool, so I have to up the heat just a tad. I should have mentioned this in the recipe....350 is probably best for most ovens. Thanks for pointing this out. :)
