I recently got the book Get It Ripe by Jae Steele. I’ve been looking forward to getting it from all the rave reviews I’ve read. This is more than just a cookbook as it goes into food choices (e.g. organic vs local), digestion, and even a cleansing and detox section.
As much as I like my refined sugars and other unhealthy treats, this book is a nice change from my usual habits and the recipes focus on whole grains and unrefined sugars. It also helps that the recipes taste good.
The banana chocolate chip muffins?
Definitely up there with the other muffins I make.
My 2 year old niece came over so we could bake cookies together. She’s allergic to eggs and dairy and I prefer feeding my niece treats that aren’t filled with refined sugar. This book is perfect for that. I chose the Flax Maple Cookies because there’s 6 ingredients and the instructions are so simple and straight forward.
I prepped all the ingredients beforehand so my niece could just pour everything into the bowl and I wouldn’t waste time measuring ingredients. She did well mixing the ingredients together, but once the batter came together she was too interested in tasting the dough to do the rest.
Verdict? She likes the cookies! My sister took home a bunch and the ones that were left here were eaten so quickly by R that I had to tell him to stop eating any more so I could take a picture of them.by
