Calling the baked spinach savouries cookies is perhaps stretching the definition of cookies a little bit. What is a cookie? The trusted wiki alludes to the sweet version but there is no common definition. There is actually a lot of confusion when it comes to defining cookies. A cookie in US is biscuit in most other countries, a cookie is a bun in Scotland, a biscuit is a scone in the US, a cookie is generally chocolate chip cookie in UK and therefore my baked spinach savouries is a cookie. And even better, you can have them for dinner without feeling guilty! And without your mum telling you to stop eating cookies because it will ruin your appetite.
Today I went a step further and also made the equivalent of chocolate chip cookies by adding adzuki bean sprouts. And this is what they look like:

The ‘chocolate chips’ partially retained their crunch. I liked both plain and chocolate chip cookies.

In case you haven’t eaten Korean food for a while, or never eaten it, this is perhaps a friendly reminder! A Korean friend told me that ideally a Korean meal should comprise of ingredients with 7 different colors. Different colored ingredients contribute a different nutrient so the meal is more balanced. Taste of Home’s meal is certainly balanced.

An excellent collection of kitchen tips. Some interesting tips include:
- If you happen to over salt a pot of soup or a stew, drop in a peeled potato. The potato will absorb the excess salt.
- When baking bread, do not preheat your oven. You will be amazed at the resulting lightness of the bread.
- Store tomatoes with their stems pointed down and they will stay fresher, longer.
