Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are my love letter to peanut butter.

I’ve mulled on this recipe for weeks. Recently, I found a scrunched up piece of paper in the bottom of my laptop bag. It really is just scribbles of measurements. The writing is nearly illegible. Scrawls and scratches. A recipe that has been tinkered with until it reached my version of perfection. This means one thing – peanut butter experimentation can yield good things.

Boldly Spicy Tamarind Ribs

Boldly Spicy Tamarind Ribs

I have clear memories of barbeque season. You see, growing up, we lived in a city with scorching summer heat — barbequing was a necessity. It was a newfangled way to spend time, especially with the cousins, aunts, and uncles always dropping by on weekends. My parents were consummate hosts, so using our backyard for entertaining, helped break up the monotony. I have to give them credit for trying their best to emulate Canadian traditions (within reason) – they wanted us to experience some form of Canadian normalcy.

Addictive Cherry Chutney

Addictive Cherry Chutney

The beauty of cherry blossoms inspires me. Every year, I make the effort to convince people to stop and revel in their beauty. For me, they symbolize the arrival of spring. The end of winter. An opportunity to savour the present moment. Prosperity. Joy. Beauty. Freshness. Maybe even a little bit of hope.

Cherry blossoms also remind me of the cherry tree in my parents’ backyard. In the dead of winter, their tree is barren, sparse, and diminished in its appearance. When the blossoms are in full bloom, I am reminded of the coming months’ potential.
