Scenes From My Week 05.28.14

I’ve been cleaning out my pantry in preparation for our trip to the U.S., taking scraps of leftovers and turning them into whatever I could so they wouldn’t go to waste in our absence.

So what do you do when you have an excess of dried cranberries? Make spiced white chocolate cranberry cookies, of course!_1060907

I just took a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe, substituted in the white chocolate and cranberries, then added a pinch or two of nutmeg because, to my mind, white chocolate needs nutmeg. Et voila!_1060911

Also, did I mention white chocolate?_1060913

I also had a whole bag of sesame seeds leftover…so I made homemade tahini to use on tahini toast. I thought it sounded so intriguing, and it tasted even better than I imagined! I wish I had heard of this stuff sooner. It’s such a lovely alternative to peanut butter.

Have you ever made your own tahini?

  1. the cookies look delicious. It is good to clean out the pantry sometimes, you never know what you might find. No I haven't made tahini, perhaps I should try it.
    Have a great week.
