YES! Another cookie recipe!!!
Before you healthy types start grumbling, let me state several reasons for posting back-to-back cookie recipes.
1) These may be my favorite cookies of all time (too close to call).
2) I made them yesterday and therefore have a fresh photo to share.
3) I leave next week for Hotlanta. This is likely my last post before I get back, and I want it to be good. This is a great recipe for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities. It makes a boatload of cookies (6 DOZEN!), perfect for sharing with friends and family, freezing for later consumption, trading at a holiday cookie swap, sending home with strangers, donating to a local soup kitchen, or just filling your fat pants (we all have them, no shame).
4) They are freaking delicious. They are almost sodium free. What more do you need?
Temps are falling fast here in northern New England, and I came out this morning to find the windshield of my car covered in thin layer of frost. Not enough to have to scrape, but more than my windshield wipers could handle without a generous squirt of blue liquid. I’ve spent the weeks since early August harvesting everything my garden has to offer, and in the past month have come to grips with the fact that everything is tapering off. Except for the tomatoes. Oh, the tomatoes! Abundant green globes as far as the eye can see. But with the onset of cold nights and cooler days, real ripening is a thing of the past.
Never fear, intrepid eaters! “Waste not, want not” wasn’t just my grandma’s motto, here in Maine, it’s a way of life! We all know that roasting is the magic hat of cooking. You pop [whatever it is] into the oven and POOF! Pure deliciousness. Everything from potatoes to broccoli to radishes, all rendered irresistible with little more than a lot of heat.
I’m in the process of planning a road trip down to Atlanta in November. I haven’t seen my sister and her family in almost two years, and as my folks live just 20 minutes from them, it’ll give me the chance to spend some serious quality time with them all. To say I’m excited would be putting it mildly.
To break up the solo drive, I’ve decided on 8-10 stops each way, visiting places I’ve always wanted to go, but never have. And to pay for this venture, I’m using the remainder of the money I earned from my last cookbook, as well as selling the remaining copies I received. For just $15, you can help me and help yourself! Yes, you can buy it cheaper on Amazon. But will you get a signed cookbook, lovingly mailed by the author herself? HECK NO!
I don’t make any royalties from my cookbooks. None. I was paid a flat fee for writing them. I say this not to complain, but simply to explain why the sales mean so much. Each book purchased from me is money that I actually see. The lack of royalties is THE reason why I haven’t been updating the Daily Dish site. It’s not that I’m not creating new recipes. I am! But I won’t be sharing them until I publish my next cookbook. One with royalties!
If you value my work, then please show me your love. I want to see my family, but I need to pay for gas, food, and lodging. I’ve never done ANYTHING like this before in my life – a long-distance solo road trip with Meniere’s disease. ??!! But I’m determined. I know I can do this. I WILL do this.

If you don’t have an eBay account and would like to purchase a cookbook, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can send you an invoice via PayPal. For the price of a pizza (just $15!) you’ll be helping so much. And we’ll both feel great. :)) Thank you.
