Tahini Sauce

No comments:
Happy Thanksgiving, all!


Yesterday, I experimented with tahini by mixing some with cucumber, garlic, water, and salt. Not bad! If you're looking to make your tahini a little smoother (like I was), then you will be pleasantly surprised. Spread on toast, as a dip, a peanut butter substitute, a dressing, etc. Hope you like this tahini sauce as much as I do. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

So we found this recipe over at Just Doing My Best. They are oh so delicious! Plus, they're so tiny that popping one after another into your mouth doesn't seem so bad, right?

Here's the recipe as we used it. J added some mini chocolate chips to a batch for extra sweetness. These are highly addictive. You have been warned. Enjoy!

This is a delicious recipe that has been around my home since my youth. Add a side of veggies if you're in the mood, or leave as-is for pure comfort food. Enjoy!

  5. Top with Chicken and pore the rest of soup mix on top.
  6. Bake, uncovered at 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top.
