Olive-oil cookies I made with this oil, orange zest and grated cinnamon. Based on Mark Bittman's recipe in "How to Cook Everything", without the eggs and savory spices. They are 1 inch in diameter, crunchy and not too sweet.
I made these for a holiday cookie party. It's Isa Chandra Moskowitz's recipe, but I used olive oil instead of canola oil.

My fourth-grade class learned to make delicious candy-cane cookies. I can still taste them all these years later. These candy-cane cookies, however, turned out terribly because I experimented with coconut oil and I worked the dough too much. It was too much work trying to wrap red dough around white dough that I didn't bother giving it a second try.
My work packaged these gift boxes for employees. $88 worth of high-end food products. And only two items weren't vegan friendly.
Vegan nog cookies from "Vegan Cookie Connoisseur" turned out very well for Christmas Eve. Delicate texture and soft crunchy bottoms, topped with sweet rum icing. Mmm.

Best of 2010

Every year, I take stock of my photography, assessing my progress as a storyteller and as a person. Last year's best work has been curated and placed into albums on my Facebook fan page. While you're there, consider "liking" my page.
