Crash Hot Potatoes. Man, do I love Australia.

Crash Hot Potatoes

First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website.

When one of my friends asked him what kind of cookies he wanted to buy from his daughter he said, “You know. Girl Scout cookies,” with a confused look on his face. One reason that Girl Scout cookies hold such a spell over many people is that they are only available for a limited time. Whether you’re looking to create a healthier version of the cookies that you like so much or you want a way to get your fix during the off-season, try your hand at these recipes for Girl Scout-like cookies.
