Welcome to the Polyphagous Dragon!

Hearty greetings from the Rainbow Dragon to all visitors to my digital kitchen in the blogosphere!

As my blog title suggests, these pages contain a wild mix of recipes which sample a wide range of flavours and cultures. I won't even try to apply an over-arching theme to this project other than to say that every dish is about creating good food!

The Polyphagous Dragon offers multiple options for site navigation in the sidebar panels. Use the Contents box to search for recipes by dish type, the Blog Archives to search for a specific recipe by title or the Ingredients Index to pull up all recipes that feature a particular ingredient. See also my Cooking Philosophy notes for further insights.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 5/8 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins


Cream butter and sugar together until mixture is light and fluffy.
Beat in egg.
Sift baking soda and salt into flour.
Fold oats and flour mixture into butter/sugar/egg mixture until well blended.
Stir in raisins.
Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased (or non-stick) cookie sheet, allowing space between each spoonful for batter to spread as it cooks.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375°F.

These cookies are delicious hot out of the oven.
If you have any leftovers, allow them to cool at room temperature on cookie sheets or wire racks. Then store at room temperature in airtight tins.
