Really Really REALLY Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
1 Cup of smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
And that's it.
Mix well and roll the dough into balls about an inch in circumference. Place on oven pan, heat oven to 350*. Place balls on baking sheet and squish with a fork to create a cross pattern, and bake for about 10 minutes, or until brown on the bottom.
Delicious Fruit Compote
2 Cups of your favourite fruit (IE Blueberries and Peaches, Apples and Pears, Fresh Cherries, Pineapple, Mango, Mixed Berries)
1 Cup of white or clover or wild honey
1 TBSP of cinnamon, or black pepper if desired (believe me, pepper is awesome on fruit!)
About half a cup of white or red wine if desired, or if not have some anyway :p
Cut the fruit up, if large. Place fruit in a skillet over medium heat and add the honey, cinnamon and wine (if not drinking!). Keep stirring until the fruit is brown and coated well with the honey. DO NOT let it boil. You'll know the fruit is cooked when it gets all mushy and sweet.
Serve over vanilla ice cream for an awesome dessert.
1 - 2 Heads of cauliflower, cut into florets of similar size
1 clove of garlic, bulbs separated and skinned
1 glug of olive oil
Salt and pepper
Place florets into roasting pan. Pour olive oil over to coat the cauliflower evenly and toss in the garlic. Add salt and pepper as desired. Roast in a 410* oven for 35 - 40 minutes, until the florets are brown and crispy. Serve on its own or on pasta with lots of parmesan cheese.
You can add cherry tomatoes and other veggies to the mix to make a gorgeous pasta sauce. If you want, you can add lemon juice or balsamic vinegar to taste just before roasting.
