"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Kathy is a molasses lover!!! The stories I've heard about Kathy and her love of molasses are too numerous to mention. When I came across this recipe which included all those wonderful spices, oatmeal AND that irresistible molasses .... I baked them. Not only did I score big points with Kathy but she almost gave me her first born in exchange for the recipe.
