A little bribe...

Recently I posted about my method for making homemade cookies available for my peeps in their lunches and for desert.   The secret weapons are my freezer and  mixer!  I love how easy it is to whip up a batch (or two or three) of cookie dough.  This afternoon I made Chocolate Chip Bacon Pecan, Oatmeal Scotchie, and Banana Coconut Crunch.  Took all of 45 minutes, including cleaning up the mess I made and running the dishwasher.  And now the freezer has 6 new packages of cookie dough to coax people into eating the dinner recipes I am experimenting with - tonight it's Trinidadian Chicken Curry, a la The Pioneer Woman.

I'll have to be crafty and not tell them about the Chocolate Chip Bacon Pecan cookies until they've tried them...sometimes motherhood is a rough game.  But if they never try new tastes, how will they know what they are missing?  Or if a new favorite dish is to be discovered? And if the promise of fresh oven cookies does the trick, is there any harm done?
I'm thinking no!

the family likes the choco chip
and bacon cookies! I have never
heard of them. I am curious...
