My March Madness bracket just got busted, as did most this weekend, so taking a step back from basketball to do a bit of a throwback post! Pun intended. 😛But instead of sports, I’m talking cookies.
I was not super excited about the Super Bowl this year but it felt wrong not to watch the game. So, when I decided to host a last minute watch party, I baked some Chocolate Football Cookies to get into the spirit. Sharing this easy recipe, a take on sugar cookies but not overly sweet. Perfect for cookie cutters and however much icing you want!
I know not everyone has a sweet tooth but sometimes I just crave a little dessert. When you’re doing paleo, your dessert options can feel limited. Well, I’m excited to share a great Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe that lets you indulge a little while still feeling good. These cookies are chewy, moist, chocolatey, grain free, and dairy free. It’s now one of my favorite homemade paleo treats!
Women, take the day off! Screw wearing a bra! Channel centuries of feminist power to tackle your hurdles!
Men, just like, be cool, okay?
All kidding aside, today’s post is in honor of Women’s Equality Day, commemorating the ratifying of the 19th Amendment of the Consitution which granted women the right to vote! Also, because I can’t help myself, I used this day as an opportunity to try out a new cookie recipe. I’m calling them “Strawberry Suffrage Sandwich Cookies”, jam filled cookies that ooze equal rights! (Sorry, I’ll rein it in.)
But Michelle, baking on Women’s Equality Day? Isn’t that against the whole idea?
Well, while the suffrage movement might have started as empowering women beyond the home, this day also celebrates the continuing efforts to give women equal rights and opportunities, regardless of how women choose to use them. Plus – fun fact – in the late 1800s through 1920, suffragists published cookbooks as a way to spread propaganda for the cause and to help raise money. The very first cookbook was simply called The Women Suffrage Cook Book!
