I bake a batch, sometimes two, of cookies every week. My husband’s tolerance for sugar and chocolate has changed over the past few years. He now finds Toll House Chocolate Chips too sweet for his taste. So last week, I made him Amy’s Oh So Very Best Cookies which are oatmeal cookies minus the chocolate chips in the recipe.
Last Friday The New York Times posted a recipe in their “Here to Help” column for "Quick Jambalaya." Whether you’re celebrating Mardi Gras or getting ready for Lent, this recipe by Vallery Lomas is a recipe you’ll want to keep handy when you’re short on time. You can use leftover rice or prepare your own rice infused with vegetable stock and Creole seasoning. Quick Jambalaya has a nice kick of heat, but you can always enhance hot sauce. I’ll bet you can swap out the andouille (or chorizo) sausage for shrimp.
