October might start us on that long three month holiday trek, but it also brings something sweet with it too.
No, I don't mean Halloween candy (although that does rock). I'm talking about cookies, because October 1st is National Home Baked Cookie day.
So, dust off those old cookbooks and recipe boxes, because it's baking time Riverside!
The best part of making your favorite treats at home (you know, besides being able to eat them at home where no one can keep count) is that you can swap out ingredients to make them organic if you want. Even if you don't change up the whole thing, even swapping out just a few ingredients can help. For example, a simple change, such as organic sugar or flour instead of the regular kind, can help make your favorite cookies healthier, more eco-friendly, and yet still cheaper than their store bought cousins.
If you don't have any favorite recipes yet, then fear not. Simply pop on over to foodnetwork.com and take a look at some of theirs. Enjoy I.E.
