...very tasty! 

Here's the recipe for the stovetop cookies:

~4 squares (=1/2 bar=2 oz.) Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate
~1 Cup Superfine Sugar (Domino)
~1/2 Stick (=1/4 cup=4 TBSP) 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter' (or some other 'butter')
~1/4 Cup Water (I use filtered-distilled)
~1 tsp Vanilla
~2-1/2 to 3 Cups Oats (uncooked)

Stir & mix well over medium heat, boil 2 minutes, shut off stove but okay to leave pan on heat to delay hardening.

Stir in the vanilla and oats.

To make cookies, use an ice cream scoop and press mixture firmly, then carefully 'claw' the cookie out in one piece (takes a little practice, and plastic food-handling gloves are helpful).  Place on waxed paper or a plate to let it harden.

OR -- leave the mixture as it is and simply stir it occasionally until it's cooled, and this makes a nice chocolate granola to which you can add other goodies.

The Salad:

I actually started out making this slaw from marthastewart.com, but I was in a hurry and ended up with more of a chopped salad.  (Also, I'd never used jicama, before.)  Anyway, it still tasted good but later I decided to add some blueberries.

About Me
Well, yes, I was being a bit sarcastic when I named my blog here "Evidence & Clues." My cuisine scenes are usually not crime scenes. I specifically do mainly VGF (vegan, gluten-free), with an interest in raw foods but not averse to cooking. Have had a problem with some of the GF flours (tapioca intolerance, etc) and so checking out flourless recipes more often. Have an interest in VGF diabetic recipes but without those sugar substitutes… coconut crystals seem promising.
My favorite things to cook
Well, honestly… my cup of coffee in the morning. I do sort of 'cook' it, in that it's a variation on the typical 'cowboy coffee.' Along that same line… I like to make water-based things like sauces, infusions, decoctions, teas, etc.. Soup. I have a water distiller, and a carbonator. One of my more recent interests is in sprouting sprouts. Haven't really got going on it yet but have done a little.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmm. Tough question.
