How are you doing? Well, here we are well into week four of social distancing. It is a difficult time for all of us, but we are all in this together and we must remain strong. I can tell you I haven’t missed a meal in four weeks—the Quarantine Kitchen has been working overtime! My refrigerator is well-stocked with the homemade foods that we have been developing just for you. I spend the weekends (and other days too) preparing comfort foods I enjoy, and I hope you like them, too.
I want to thank you for all the positive responses I have received on email and the various social media pages. Yesterday I received over seventy responses. They are most appreciated. For the most part, I’ve tried to make the recipes fairly easy to execute. Okay, the Caramel Pork Belly may have been a stretch—but even that, made in an Instant Pot, was relatively simple.
I LOVE cookies! Do you love cookies? Who doesn’t love cookies? When I was a kid, I would always put oatmeal cookies on the top of my cookie list. It wasn’t that I liked them so much better—I liked them fine—I just thought with all that oatmeal they were a little healthier for me… like eating a bowl of hot steamy oatmeal. I mean, could the Quaker Oatmeal Man be wrong? Now I realize with all the creamery butter, two kinds sugars and the added goodies—dried fruit and chocolate chips or chunks—it may not have been quite as virtuous as I imagined.
So, let get bakin’! Ed’s Soft Oatmeal Cookies are very moist with a great flavor. Take these cookies up a notch and add a cup of dried fruit (raisins, cherries or blueberries), nuts, chocolate chips or a half cup of each.
