I don't know why the first picture loaded side-ways. mmm should that mean anything?

As you know, I don't cook that much anymore. But I do like to bake (when I'm in the mood) HA!! I got this recipe from a book I just finished reading, "Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs. Yum, yum and they are pretty good for you, too! I know that just doesn't sound right, does it? "Good for you" and "Yum,Yum" in the same sentence!!

P.S. Don't tell my older son it has coconut....he says he doesn't eat toenails!! YUCK!!!!

1 TBSP vinegar
juice 1 orange and add water to make one cup of liquid
