Hi.. what is the "soda" you mention? Is is baking soda, or soda you drink? (11/21/2004)

"Soda" in the dry ingredient list would OBVIOUSLY be baking soda. (11/22/2004)

valleyrimgirl: No need to be SO condescending to Kim. Perhaps she is someone just learning to cook. At least she had enough sense to ask before she did it wrong. Isn't that what this site is about - to help out others? Get over yourself. (11/22/2004)

In her defense I too wondered about the "soda" in this recipe! I am glad someone asked this question~:) (11/23/2004)

Oatmeal Cookies

Hi, Baking soda for those outside the country is bicarbonate of soda or "bicarb" in the UK. Soda is also what we call carbonated beverages like Coke here in the U.S. It's also called Pop or Soda Pop. Soda is also the name for an old Soda Fountain drink with flavored syrup and carbonated water so it's easy to get confused. We'll try to watch for that in future recipes. (11/23/2004)

Oatmeal Cookies

If you add a 1/4 cup of skim milk and about 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon for 15 minutes made with an ice cream scooper these cookies come out like bakery specialty cookies. (08/28/2005)
