Recipe for family meals :


This recipe comes from the the Bitchin Kitchen web site which is run by Faith Heinauer. This is what she said in describing Bitchin Kitchen:

" I grew up in a household that loved not only food, but also the creative process of cooking and entertaining. My father is a professional chef and my mother was a former pastry chef. After earning my degree in hotel and restaurant management, I joined my father's catering business and started teaching cooking classes. Growing up in the restaurant scene offers a lot of culinary observations; add my knack for experimenting in the kitchen, and you've got my collection of recipes and tricks of the trade. So, if you want to talk food, get a great recipe or hear the latest culinary scoop, you're at the right place!"

"Pull out the sprinkles, decorating icing, and food coloring . . . Its cookie time!

This recipe utilizes a food processor. If you do not have one, throw the ingredients in a blender it will work just as well".
