Sweet purple cabbage salad
Just look at those colours! Have you ever had purple cabbage? I had it for the first time two years ago. It was a catered lunch at the office. One of the dishes was a simple coleslaw made with purple cabbage and a sprinkle of pine nuts. It was delish. I can’t say the purple cabbage tastes any different from the regular green one but it makes such a huge difference when food just looks good and appetising.

Oatmeal raisin cookies
This is the first time I’m making cookies since I was in high school! There’s a recipe my mother has that was super easy (no, this is not that one), I would prepare the dough and store it in the fridge, then roll it out in portions every morning to make a fresh batch for snacktime for me and my siblings. But that was a long time ago…

Adding raisins is an easy way to freshen up an old cake recipe. If you have a recipe that you make often and you just want to change things up a bit, throw in a handful of raisins. I do reccomend soaking them in something ahead of time, even if it’s not alcohol, I might even steam them a little, just so they’re not so dry.
