Let’s Make Brown Sugar Drop Cookies!

When I was a little girl I baked with mom a lot. There are printed photographs still hanging around of me somewhere. My mom has numerous stashed photo albums from the 70s and 80s hidden in various boxes in her basement storage. In them are photos of me from about four years old on, baking cookies. Of course, in most of those photos I’m licking cookie dough batter off a spoon. Still, I still seemed to have grasped the concept of baking at a young age.

Not only did I learn that raw cookie dough is delicious. I also learned that if you want to eat raw cookie dough you had to actually make at least some of the cookies. These days, when I’m feeling lazy, I just pick up refrigerated cookie dough from the grocery store. Nothing, however, quite beats making homemade cookies from scratch. And I’ve found that by making something I enjoy eating, baking – and even cooking for that matter – really is a joy filled self care activity.

Back in the days when I was still under five feet tall and drawing with crayons was my favorite past time, I loved to bake snickerdoodles with my mom. You can of course roll these brown sugar cookies in a combo of cinnamon and sugar before baking them if you like. But these brown sugar drop cookies are actually delicious all on their own. And, this is a great cookie recipe to inspire a young (undiscovered) baker you may have in your own home.

Despite the name, these brown sugar drop cookies aren’t overly sweet. What they are, however, is pretty darn perfect. And quite frankly, I’ve never made an easier cookie. So, whether you’re getting back to your roots with some simple, old fashioned baking, or if you’re simply learning a new skill, this homemade brown sugar cookie recipe is a keeper.

Flank Steak Tacos Recipe. How to make a delicious flank steak tacos recipe with avocado crema, cilantro and a chili lime rub for quick and easy weeknight dinners for taco Tuesday.

Let’s Taco About Cooking

I’ll admit I’m not the best cook. I learned the basics (my mom taught me to bake, not cook) during my first marriage. I was going through an unfortunate bought of agoraphobia at the time. So I cooked meals from scratch, both from Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food Magazine and recipes from the internet. My biggest success was surprisingly making pierogies from scratch. It took an hour and half to make, and I needed help flattening out the pasta, but damn. It was totally worth it. (At least once anyway.)

I made all my mashed potatoes like pierogi guts after that. Flavored with sauteed onions, garlic, sour cream and cheddar cheese. However, that was the one and only time, I ever tried making pasta. I vowed, that until I owned a pasta machine, it was entirely too much manual labor. (Not to mention the total time suck.)

Since then I’ve experimented with cooking primarily through meal delivery kits, such as Hello Fresh. While it’s not a realistic service for my budget every week, it does make a nice treat from time to time. I get to cook a dinner I know I can’t screw up. And I’ve actually learned some things along the way. Cooking tips and tricks that I’ve since incorporated into meals I actually made without a recipe.

Of course, meat is expensive, especially steak. So I recently tried a meatless Monday for dinner. It did not going over so well with Greg. After a ten hour day of manual labor, it just didn’t fill him up despite the high iron and protein content in farro and quinoa.

While in Kroger one day, I happened upon some flank steak. For the price it was ridiculously cheap compared to a ribeye or a filet. So I picked up close to 2 lb. (two meals for two people) for around $17.

Up to that point, I hadn’t cooked flank steak in over a decade. It’s often not available or I’m not the one cooking. So any meat selection, aside of an organic grass fed sirloin, I leave to the chef (ie. someone other than myself.) I was readily impressed, however, both with the flavor and tenderness of the cuts of flank steak. So I’ve purchased it a few times since then.

This latest go round I decided to make tacos with something other than ground beef. I combined a number of taco recipes I’ve tried over the years, including ones with shrimp, for this flank steak tacos recipe. In the end, I was pretty impressed with how my “winging it” turned out. Therefore I thought I’d share my flank steak tacos recipe with you, my readers, so you can enjoy it on your next taco Tuesday dinner night.

A Traditional Summer Treat

I still have fond memories of my parents giving me change to buy ice cream throughout summers as a child. Every year the ice cream truck would circle through our cul-de-sac to deliver treats to a neighborhood full of kids. I think my favorites were the chocolate Good Humor ice cream bars and, of course, bomb pops. These days, however, ice cream truck sightings are rare. They’re also the talk of the town. Just not for the reason you may think.

The only ice cream truck we ever see circling the block plays Christmas music. As if that wasn’t bizarre enough, the combination of Christmas tunes in the summer paired with the distortion from a pair of way back speakers sounds pretty f-ing creepy. I swear it reminds me of that movie, Killer Clown from Outer Space. It has that same eerie level of creep factor that’s both amusing and terrifying at the same time.

There are also no bright pictures or prices for ice cream painted onto the sides of this particular truck. Therefore, my friends and I always wonder what that ice cream truck is really a front for. We’ve never actually seen anyone buy ice cream from this truck. So for all we know the person inside could be selling drugs. Or perhaps it’s a secret gateway to hell.  (I mean hey, I did grow up in the 80’s. Anything is possible!) I’ve also wondered if other towns and cities like mine have experienced the same sort of killer clown ice cream truck phenomenon.

Luckily, all of the other food trucks in our area seem to legit. It’s just that one ice cream trucks that creeps me out more than the massage parlors dotted throughout our strip malls. Those, at least, aren’t emitting eery music or maneuvering  through our neighborhoods.

These days I’m obviously no longer dependant on quarters and dimes from my parents to get my ice cream fix. However, seeing as how I’m all grown up – in number not in heart – I enjoy making my own homemade popsicles from time to time. And what better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than with your own boozy popsicles speckled with edible flowers?

You can also use pretty spoons in place of a traditional wooden popsicle stick to make your boozy popsicles the perfect addition to your spring wedding or event.

Benefits of Edible Lilac Flowers

One of my favorite spring flowers are lilacs. Lilac shrubs, which typically bloom in late spring, offer more than just their beautiful blooms. This flowering shrub yields a plethora of fragrant blooms that are not only pretty to look at, they are also edible and medicinal. A beautiful touch to garnish drinks for a spring brunch, lilac blooms offer a slightly bitter, floral flavor. (Much like some of my favorite cocktails. I am after all, a gin and tonic girl with an undying love for elderflowers and juniper berries.)

Medicinally, lilacs make a lovely ingredient in facial toners due to their astringent properties. (Next time you’re thinking of making rose water, why not try lilacs instead?) A warm or cold lilac infusion also makes a nice compress for rashes, cuts and other skin ailments due to its natural astringency. As a home remedy, lilacs have often been used to bring down fevers as well as to help with gastric issues such as gas, bloating and constipation.

While I’m a huge fan of Pok Pok Som drinking vinegar, I chose to use Vermont Village Sipping Vinegar for my Limoncello & Violette Spritzer recipe instead. Not only is Vermont Village Sipping Vinegar available in smaller quantities (and at a better price point when purchasing from Thrive Market which is how I save on natural and organic products) but they are also sugar free.

I chose to use their blueberry & honey sipping vinegar which simply contains blueberry, honey and raw apple cider vinegar. This is also the one and only EVER sipping vinegar that my roommate will drink.

While she agrees with me that this sipping vinegar is quite delicious, especially in the craft cocktails I make up in our kitchen, she will still only drink it while holding her breath so as not to smell the vinegar. With that said, I’m quite sure half of you are nodding your heads in agreement and the other half are laughing your tooshies off.

Either way, if you’d like to give my Limoncello  & Violette Spritzer a try, here’s how to make it…
