I begin this by saying something which echoes my bacon sentiments: I’m not a peanut-butter obsessed person. Some people live for it; I, quite simply, do not. It’s not that I don’t like it: on the contrary, on the days I want to feel most like my elementary-school self, I make myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on wheat, throw some pretzels alongside, and am transported to a time where I made daily visits to the park and The Jetsons were the only ones who owned cell phones.

Cookie swaps? Fun. Cookie swaps with over 500 people scattered across the world? Agonizing, but in a fun way. There’s so many things to consider! Transport time, crumble factor, freshness window, packing methods; it’s all critical. Not to mention the apprehension of sending your beloved cookies to complete and utter (but nice) strangers. And not that I really have a reputation to speak of, but if I do, it was on the line because of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012. Continue reading →Pin It
This was never supposed to be a series. I honestly don’t know what came over me. There I was, toodling along, eating salads and making fruit things, and it struck me. Chocolate.
I. Wanted. Chocolate.
And it occurred to me, in that moment, that I hadn’t had a real chocolate dessert in ages. If this little corner of the internet is anything, it’s a reflection of what I’m eating, and there hasn’t been one predominantly chocolate post since March; those little chocolate pretzel cookies. Before that, my annual Buche de Noel, and we all know when those show up: Christmas. That’s right, people; I haven’t really done anything chocolaty since last year. That’s about to change in a big way. Continue reading →Pin It
I. Have. No. Words.
This post has been oddly difficult for me to write. Usually, I just make something, get excited, write about it, and…done. And although I’m not winning any “excellence in food writing” awards (that I know of), I think it usually turns out okay? At the very least, I am able to put in to words roughly how I feel about what recipe I have just completed. These corn cookies have thrown me for a loop. Really thrown me. Because It’s hard to accept that something this cornneriffic exists on the earth. In the universe. In any other universe. Continue reading →Pin It
I don’t think I need to tell you I’m in love. I believe knowing that I’ve made three batches of cookies from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook in less than a month should indicate more than just a brief infatuation. I think it’s the challenge; this book plays hard to get. It’s never just a dry ingredients into wet ingredients square dance, oh no…these recipes are full-blown projects. And I mean that in the best way possible. Don’t you ever get weary of just cranking out a batch of cookies you could make in your sleep? I do. Continue reading →Pin It
