Recently I posted photos of my oatmeal raisin cookies and received all sorts of comments from friends and family. And those helped me create this recipe. First, a friend mentioned that she added tea to her oatmeal raisin cookies. Second, several friends engaged in some raisin-shaming, suggesting that chocolate chips were a better addition to oatmeal cookies than dried up grapes. Okay. Fine. I'm on board with chocolate chip cookies anytime!


I circled back to my friend who mentioned the teas and she said she adds the contents for a few tea bags. I just happened to have received a care package from The Republic of Tea* and read the labels to see which might be a nice flavor complement to oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies. You'll see other other two teas in different creations, but for these, I went with the new Star Wars: The Mandalorian - Warrior Herb Tea.

It's a caffeine-free herbal blend of rooibos, natural passion fruit flavor, hibiscus, natural mango and vanilla flavors, peony petals, sunflower petals, natural strawberry, and grapefruit flavors. And it smells delicious. Feel free to substitute whatever tea you have on-hand.

Ingredients makes approximately three dozen 2" cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • contents of 4 tea bags (approximately 4 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • Also needed: baking sheets, parchment paper, cookie scoop (optional) 


Procedure
 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Once that mixture if lightened and fluffy, beat in the eggs one at a time until fully combined. Beat in the vanilla.

In a medium mixing bowl, blend together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and tea. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter-sugar mixture. Stir in the oats. Fold in the chocolate chips.

 

Scoop out the dough by large tablespoonfuls - I use a cookie scoop - onto prepared cookie sheets, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie. These flatten out and spread as they bake.

 

Place trays in the oven and bake until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown, approximately 16 to 18  minutes. 

Let the cookies cool for 3 to 4 minutes on the sheets. Then carefully transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
