Ovenless baking?

Amazing and hilarious. Check out this recipe/guide to baking chocolate-chip cookies in the car. I think I might try this.

That’s awesome! Would be a fun way to make cookies while camping, eh? Mix up the cookie dough at home, roll, AND FREEZE. It’ll help the food in your cooler stay cold and when it’s sufficiently thawed, slice and put in your car. I wonder if they would cook on simple tin foil (with parchment paper) or if the cookie sheet is essential… hmmm.

Related but on a sad note, can you believe that parents have left their kids in cars for hours?? It really is like an oven. Poor babies. :(

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
