SO I am posting my recipes but do not have Photo's to include which is really no fun .....
I love reading Foodie mags and beautiful cookbooks full of color its what grabs me and makes me want to make the recipe I am certain that might be what would inspire someone to recreate one of my bloggies
but for now you are just going to have to take my word for it and believe the recipes are all to die for good and healthy as can be ...well mostly
the one exception is the Herminy Granger Ranger Cookies that Bodo and I made ...well they have some good ingredients in them ...oats....ummmm yeah..... but of course they are supposto be good summer camp lunch box cookies so they are really quite loaded with sugar ...Bodo gives these cookies two Nintendo Harry Potter worn thumbs UP!
So after that intro lets start with the cookies
