It’s been a busy week-end, with St. Patrick’s Day and other activities for warmer days. Perhaps you haven’t had time to check your cookbook or creative spirit for healthy snacks made only from the ingredients in the last post.

I want to share a cookie recipe I like that has some redeeming qualities as far as nutrition is concerned. But the time factor is way off the chart as far as “right- now- eat-ability” (if that is a word) is concerned. Check it out. Kids will love making them but they won’t like not being able to eat them right away.

Dream Keeper Cookies

2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Beat whites very stiff. Gradually add sugar until stiff peaks form. Stir in nuts and mix lightly.  Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheets. Place cookies in preheated oven. Turn off oven and leave cookies in the oven overnight. Next morning, carefully pull each cookie from the paper or foil. Enjoy.

Now I’ll put on my thinking cap for other fast snacks using these ingredients, but with a much, much shorter time-frame. What are some of your healthy snack ideas using these ingredients?

Here is a list of potentially dangerous home situations. I suggest you discuss them with another member of your family. What would you do if any of the following occurred in your home?

Jennifer has just broken a glass in the sink. How should she clean it up?

Halley just came home from the store with some cleanser and bleach. Where should they be stored?

Meridee is washing dishes but wants to go and turn on TV. What should she do first and why?

She also splashed some water on the floor. What should she do?

Juluis has a pizza in the oven and is ready to take it out. What should he do first? Then what? Then?

Matt is tall but not tall enough to reach a high shelf for a plate. Other than call for help, what should he do?

B.J. was making some toast and a slice got caught in the toaster. What should B.J. do?

Hope you’ve come up with¬† safe ways of handling these situations.

Here’s to working safely in the kitchen,

Chef Crombie
