Welp, its February, peeps. Don’t ask me how that happened so fast because I’ve got no clue.
The first piece of the year is over, gone. It’s about the time where everyone’s resolutions start going out the window and people are getting real. Speaking of resolutions, I was really hoping to be more organized this year. I was planning to get it together with my recipes and make my life easier on myself, but I am still just as hopelessly scattered with my recipes as always.
I’m not a pattern follower, I’m a free-stylist, but it’s always been that way. A few of my sisters and I crochet together. (Well, used to crochet together. I’m no fun anymore because I’m always working on a recipe or editing pictures and what not.) Anyway, they have the ability to read the patterns and do them to perfection but I so can’t do that, it drives me crazy. I can only do it my way, and in case you haven’t guessed, its the same in the kitchen.
I like it that way. In my opinion the only way to really cook is to be at home in your kitchen and friendly with your ingredients. I have been known to be a little to frindly with someand that can get messy but it works. I have discovered cooking to be my zen and the kitchen my sanctuary.
I don’t know why and can’t get it together with my recipes though. You’d think I would be able to just write them down as I’m making them, but I never do. Sometimes I plan a recipe ahead and write down what I am going to put in it and then just adjust the amounts as I go. Other times I grab a piece of scrap and jot things down as I decide on them. However, most of the time I’m lucky if I get some scribbles on a napkin before I’m finished which always leaves me trying to remember what I did.
I always do eventually, but if I just spent a little time to keep things organized I could save myself that much more. Maybe I will get it together this month but let’s not hold our breath.
So, I don’t have a mile long recipes title today, imagine that. No need to ask if I’m feeling alright, I’m fine. It’s just that I made these yummy little homemade fig newtons and there is no need for more explantion than that. If you are a fan of fig newtons than you’ve gotta make these.
We love fig newtons and you can’t but them here so I made these for a little blast from the past and they were so good.
They’re super easy fun, and way healthier than anything that comes in a package.
