Cranberry Coconut Cookies

by | Bites, UnBox Your Kitchen

I love to bake. Living the nomadic lifestyle, my home on wheels doesn’t necessarily provide me with the kitchen space I was accustom. Adjustments have been made and new routines established. I learned to bake half batches to accommodate the limited storage space, a growing waistline, and very small oven.

During my time on the road, several concerned friends have asked, “What do you eat?”

My response is always, “Food. What do you eat?” Their concern for my well-being is sweet.

I thought it would be fun to record a Facebook Live video in the UnBox Your Kitchen Facebook group to show friends and family what my kitchen space looks like and an attempt to adjust a recipe to fit the ingredients I had in the pantry. Both were a great success!

You’re invited to join the Facebook group community. I enjoyed recording the live video and plan to do more!

Until then, stay well my friends!
