Wellness Wednesday Pride Workshop: Reimagining Relationships – Feb. 10 at 10 am

Many people can be influenced by “relationship rules” that they have encountered from family, from cultural traditions, from peers or social media and so forth. Some of these rules may make things easier, and other times, they can make situations worse. Join this workshop to consider how you can choose to take responsibility and ownership for living your own vision of relationships through self-exploration and through how you interact with others. Register here!

Rainbow M&M Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, soft
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups M&Ms (keep 1 cup aside for the top)

Tools: Mixing bowls, wooden spoon, whisk, hand mixer or stand mixer (not essential, but makes things easier)

Recipe:

  1. Wash your hands!
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  4. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and both sugars for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  5. Add egg and vanilla extract, mixing until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  6. On low speed, add in flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  7. Gently stir in 1 cup of M&Ms (we’ll use the other cup for the top).
  8. Scoop balls of dough about the size of a golf ball. Drop dough onto prepared baking sheets leaving an inch or two for spreading.
  9. Bake for 10ish minutes, until the edges of the cookies are set but the centre is still slightly underdone, this will create a soft cookie.
  10. Using the remaining M&M’s, press 5 or so onto the top of each mound of dough.
