The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
I’m not much inclined to cook. I can cook but I don’t. Now and again I have a reason to cook and then I get carried away.
This week I needed some utility baking for a school project. Rationing biscuits.
I found a recipe on a great blog. That’s handy!
It was for carrot biscuits. (Watch out if you’re from across the Atlantic. U.K. Biscuits are cookies. US biscuits are more like scones from what I can gather. )
The ingredients were simple and I made them gluten and dairy free too.
The recipe was for twelve biscuits. It had about twelve spoons of ingredients and I was struck by how small the biscuits were. I doubled the recipe to make more.
I guess it’s an example of modern life. Cookies and cakes are huge now. This war time recipe encouraged smaller portions. And of course the restricted diet at that time seems to have kept people healthier.
They were good. (They don’t keep very long. )
