Keeping in Touch

Many changes have happened this year. Many changes are still happening. I'll be moving to a new state, starting a new job, finding and moving into a new home, making new friends, and attempting to keep in touch with my current friends. I hope this blog can help me keep in touch and keep track of all the new things.

Recipe from a great friend:
Kate's Vegan Ginger Cookies
Addictive spicy sweet cookies
Oven: 350F
4 tablespoons turbinado or demerrara sugar*
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup soy milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Grease 2 cookie sheets. Place turbinado sugar in small bowl. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a separate large bowl, mix oil, molasses, soy milk, sugar, and vanilla.

Pour dry ingredients into wet and combine well. Roll into 1-inch balls, flatten into a 1 1/2 in diameter disk, press cookie tops into turbinado sugar and place 1 inch apart sugar side up on a prepared cookie sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, let cool on cookie sheets for 3 to 5 minutes, transfer to cooling rack.

I now realize how I seem to have taken your presence for granted and how much I'll miss your smile in the hallways. What a great outlook on life you have, and how lucky you are to have found your soulmate so early in your life. I wish you lots of luck in your new school! Keep smiling, be strong, and stay in touch!
