Cookies and the holidays. For some they just go hand-in-hand. Cookies often lace our baking and buying during the season as we prepare for children's events, parties and family gathers. There's just something comforting about the smell of fresh cookies wafting from the kitchen -- heck there's even Christmas Cookie Candles!
Along with great cookies are great cookie recipe swaps -- where neighbors share the family favorites to bring joy and good memories to all. And that's what we're aiming to do here at WebMD in the next two weeks. We're asking our members to share their favorite cookie recipes so that we can all try, taste and enjoy.
This week we're calling for healthy cookie recipes. By healthy, we mean a cookie that is good and good for you. Cookies that will still soothe a holiday sweet tooth, but are chock full of good-for-you things like nuts, dried fruits, and/or organic sugars. They can be low-fat, low-calorie, low-carb and don't forget low-effort.
Take a look at Elaine Magee's yummy 5-Minute Fudge Recipe for some ideas. And, if you're sharing a recipe from another site, please be sure to share the source and the link. Thanks and we look forward to see your recipes!
Oh, one more thing — we've got a surprise for one lucky submitter this week. Stay tuned!View Thread
Thanksgiving is coming up, and it's one of my favorite times of the year. Everyone seems to celebrate the holiday a bit differently. And, while there are some holiday staples for the dinner table, all of us also seem to have different food favorites.
What was the best Thanksgiving you've ever had? The worst?
What was the funniest thing that ever happened at a Thanksgiving dinner you attended?
What was the weirdest food you've ever been served for a Thanksgiving meal?
