I tend to have achy cold feet and legs and hands and poor circulation. The combination of ingredients in these cookies combined with the turmeric milk makes me feel toasty warm and relaxed. The cumin helps with a heavy feeling in the legs, I like to put it on pizza, too. It makes me sleepy and I wake up feeling refreshed. I also put curry powder on pizza. I could practically live on these two recipes:

Oatmeal Freezer Cookies

  • melt equal amounts butter and peanut butter in a pan on medium heat, just until melted
  • stir in sugar to taste - 1/8 cup or so
  • stir in about 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1/8 teaspoon or more clove powder
  • stir in enough uncooked oatmeal to make it thick enough to make little bite size balls
  • press into the bottom of a pan and freeze
  • cut into bite size squares and store in freezer or fridge

Turmeric Milk

2 cups hot milk, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon turmeric (no pepper), 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, optionally 1/4 teaspoon cumin

drink it hot

Also, if you make ginger snap cookies, try adding a tiny amount of cayenne :)
