The 2 Ingredient Cookie Taste Test

2 Ingredient Cookie TestYesterday, we posted an article about the 2 Ingredient Cookie recipe from The Burlap Bag. The two ingredients are bananas and oats and the recipe is so close to foolproof, I had to make some and test them out on three cookie experts. So I made a batch and in an effort to suck-up to the judges, mixed-in some chocolate chips. Here are the results:

  1. Kid A: Too chewy. I can’t eat the whole thing.
  2. Kid B: It’s not bad. I could eat more but just not now.
  3. Kid C: Don’t like bananas. Not going to try it. (my l’il commie)

Personally, I loved the 2 Ingredient Cookies and I could even do without the chocolate chips. It’s a great, “on-the-go” and healthy snack you can stuff in your pocket as you’re leaving the house. Skip the Snickers/Granola/PowerBar and give the 2 Ingredient Cookies a shot. I may try this recipe with applesauce next time and see how it goes. You’ll be the first to hear about my success or failure.

Takara Tomy’s Gurefuru Chuchu: Hand-Cranked, In-Fruit Juice Maker

[youtube width=”425″ height=”319″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvXqnfFkfH4[/youtube]Skip the orange flavored drink box and get your fruit juice directly from the source. I guess it’s Jubbling because it cuts out the processing and packaging of normal fruit juice boxes. But I do foresee that the manic-cranking of the Gurefuru Chuchu handle to make some in-fruit juice will create a warm, frothy concoction that will activate a lot of gag reflexes. Just sayin.

Guerrilla Grafters Are Doing Some Guerrilla Jubbling By Grafting Fruit Tree Branches To City Trees

[youtube width=”425″ height=”239″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0osO1_FR_24[/youtube]Maybe if I worked for the City of San Francisco, I might be pissed about Guerrilla Grafters grafting branches from fruit trees on the city trees but only because I have to be. Guerrilla Grafters are illegally grafting fruit tree branches, including cherry and Asian pear, to the cities trees and from the video, the people working near the trees like the idea. Are they FrankenFruit trees now? We prefer the name JubbliFruit trees. [FairCompanies.com]
