First I just want to say my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston along with their friends and family. I have spent many wonderful days in this colorful and lively city and the pictures I’m seeing today remind me how suddenly things can change.
As most of you have probably seen by now I’m a member of the amazing Secret Recipe Club, which is a blog link up party where people get to explore and then create a dish from another blog. While my normal post went up last week with Group A I am bringing a bonus SRC post today from Group B. Maria’s Close to Home blog has a little bit (okay a lot a bit) of EVERYTHING!!!! From crafts to nutrition tips to recipes she is a very talented women, and her talent seems to be carrying over to the next generation. When I saw these minty green cookies I immediately knew this was the recipe for today. Many moons ago I had the fortunate to spend a St. Patrick’s day in Boston and while the details are a little…hazy…it was a fantastic day spent with great friends. As an added bonus I’m leaving for Dublin in just over two weeks and will be staying right by the St. Patrick Cathedral – so Maria I really was meant to have your blog!
I did have to make a slight change to the recipe as I couldn’t find any sort of mint chips, however Andes Mints crush up fantastically in the blender so I was set. I also skipped the green food coloring as I have an aversion to green cookies after a less than pleasant experience in HS.
Note: picture is on it’s way however my photographer is currently out so might have to wait until he returns! trying to figure out this instagram thing in the mean time…
