Melody and Taunya are beginning to recover from the Holiday season,  and exhaustion is still quite evident. Taunya mistakenly calls this episode 3, but we decided to keep it as a testament to our exhaustion. 

We start off with a little literal potty humor (sorry about that). For those that would like to know more about the fascinating Thomas Crapper, here is is wikipedia page.

 In https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Crapperthis episode we discuss the digestive biscuit, a common item in the U.K. but now real known in the states--the sisters want to put a little spotlight on this delicious and healthy biscuit.

The first item Taunya introduces is a graham cracker recipe. The graham cracker is the closest Americans have to the digestive biscuit. This recipe comes from King Arthur flour. 

TAUNYA'S OPTIONAL MODIFICATIONS: Double the amount of cinnamon if you wish. Substitute 1/2 of the white sugar with brown sugar.

The second item that Taunya presents is a more traditional digestive biscuit from Jamie Oliver. 

TAUNYA'S OPTIONAL MODIFICATIONS: Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and grind the oats in a food processor or a seed mill.
