I used about 3 ounces less cheddar cheese and added about an ounce of pepperjack for some spice. I used 2 tablespoons less of butter and replaced it with 3 tablespoons of chia seed gel Not only was this probably 1 tablespoon too many, but I probably shouldn't have added the 2 tablespoons of water later either. Everything was fine before I added the water, making it a bit gooier than it should have been.
I made circles thinking they'd be easier. They weren't.
I also thought I was so smart spreading out the mixture with a spatula bottom and cutting out the shapes while on the cookie sheet, but it's just too hot in our house. The batter got warm and sticky almost immediately (even the wax paper started sticking to the dough and ripping - I guess that's why they recommend parchment).
I tried to spread it and freeze it. Cut out the shapes and freeze it. Pull the shapes off...and goop! I finally just put spoonfuls on the darn tray and threw it in the oven. Screw it.
Five minutes later the house sure smelled good. I was also appreciating the tiny amount of dishes that go into this process.
And the taste? Yummy.
Note: The seeds do have quite a bit of good fat in them, so this is not a calorie buster. Eat like you would nuts or avocados.)
The only bad thing? Well, it didn't make that much. And I had to save some for Michael....
Friday night - at The Dock - to sign a book that a blog reader, friend, and part-time owner/visitor bought online - and.....a popcorn machine? Is this someone's idea of torture? I want one of these in my house! Once I own one, you'll know that I've just given up. Bring on the fat a**. I loooooove movie popcorn. But I didn't have any. Of course, Michael did.
BTW, I absolutely must give a shout out to Vishnu who sold one of my books by basically saying to a complete stranger - give me $20US and I'll give you a book you'll love. It worked. He's my new salesman. His commission was a Carib. Everybody's happy.
