I just noticed that it has been one month since my last post! 

Maki - the friend who gave me rice flour and all kinds of goodies - and her mother were recently involved in an accident involving five cars.  It must have been SO scary for them both. The impact caused injuries to their necks, backs and, for Maki, her left leg too.  When she mentioned to me about it over IM, my heart went up to my mouth!   In fact, I was so stunned that I was lost for words (and that doesn't happen often).  My fingers were in shock too because all they could managed was to type repeated,"I'm so sorry you had to go through this Maki!"  There isn't much I can do to help Maki feel better since she resides in Tokyo.  So I baked.   

These cookies are incredibly tasty.  How can the combination of brown sugar, mango, macadamia nuts and dried cranberries be anything else but tasty?  Not many people like cakey cookies but my dad loves these bite-size morsels.  He feels cookies for the elderly should all be like that - not too sweet and not too chewy.  With that in mind, I made a batch to include in a care package for Maki and her mother.

I know that Maki would enjoy the dried mango bits embedded in each cookie.

Maki, I hope you and your mum will recover in time to fully enjoy the Christmas holidays!


I just discovered that the new Blogger interface works with CHROME. How come no one tells me this?! I've been blogging with SAFARI sin...
