Sweet, sassy, molassy -- that's all I can really say about these little bites of joy. Im a major cookie fan, and it's my 'thing' to see how I can upgrade and alter the general cookie into more than just something you can dunk into your coffee or tea.  Having said that, these cookies are high on smokey molasses, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and rolled in sugar so that they're crispy on the outside, and gooey-chewy on the inside. I'm a big fan of spices, so I go a little overboard with them when i'm making them at home, but in the recipe below, the exact measurements are all there....

 First thing is first – I love cinnamon and I’m a total cinnamon-junkie. I am also addicted to cinnamon rolls and I will stop at nothing to dig into one if it’s in my vicinity. However, the truth dawns -- when you hit 30, your body kind of changes; and by that I mean your metabolism kind of progressively starts to slow down… and down... and down… and then you realize you cant indulge in things like giant cinnamon rolls smothered in frosting every afternoon at lunchtime without risking some unwelcome physical ailments.

 Pumpkins are SO healthy - rich in vitamin A and C, fiber, and vital flavonoid poly-phenolic antioxidants such as leutin, xanthin, and carotenes. WIth an abundance of vitamin E, it is also great for your complexion. Did I mention it's also low in calories? 100g of pumpkin flesh contains less than 26 calores . It's also rich source of minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. Sadly, it's also one of the most overlooked veggies ever. Local supermarkets however have made pumpkins readily accessible for everyone now, selling them either peeled, in chunks, or as slabs, where...

I love making pies. But my peeve is always the leftover pie-crust. I usually ball whatever is leftover, wrap it in plastic wrap and throw it in the freezer for alter use in hope that if I accumilate enough, I dont have to go through the process of making another pie-crust. Like a bonus really. But there's usually never enough to make another pie - unless you ball pie--crust leftovers for ages and ages! I'm usually dont possess such patience when it comes to long culinary processes... and hence, this simple and elegant idea. One of the easist things for me to do with the leftovers is ma...
