I woke up at 7 am this morning. Why do I do this to myself? I’m always bored during the day- I feel the need to be productive when the sun is out. I only feel entitled to veg in front of the boob-tube when the sun dips down outta sight.
So naturally, with nothing better to do- I want to play cooking.
Mostly Baking. (so good for staying in shape)
But due to the incredible early time of day- I feel like I shouldn’t get started on cakes or cookies just yet. At least give it another- ah- half hour. hah.
But I happen to be browsing tastespotting.com (I’m addicted) and stumble upon a recipe for Homemade pop-tarts!! I didn’t know that was possible. The combination of words “Pop” and “Tart” immediately evokes images of chemicals and genetically altered “foodstuffs” being mass processed in a factory- completely un-replicatable in a home type setting. But leave it to the creative foodies of the world to come up with a healthier, tastier version of these aluminum wrapped atrocities so reminiscent of my childhood.

I’m still mid- dough stage right now (mildly surprised by how easy this is) but I’ll post a pic when I finish. I have no doubt they’ll be DELICIOUS. Seriously. You can’t go wrong with pie dough and brown sugar.
