Hey guys, remember me? The crazy lady who likes to bake foods based on Marvel movies and is a little bit obsessed with the Great British Baking Show? I’m back! Long time no see! I’ve been a bit consumed with life stuff lately, so I haven’t had much time or inclination to write. I’m not going to get into that right now, but I will at least say that things are finally starting to settle down and I’m starting to get back into the mood to do what I love: bake!
As I mentioned previously, I wasn’t about to let macarons get me down. After the first failed attempt, I took to Google to learn what could be learned and tried again the next day armed with all the tips and tricks the internet had to provide.
I finally decided to surrender to the trend and try my hand at macarons. I knew it would be difficult, but I secretly expected that as long as I was careful, I’d be able to achieve at least passable results on the first try. As evidenced by the pictures, I was wrong.
Happy Thanksgiving in advance! Time sort of got away from me last week, so this post is extra late (sorry about that). If you need a last-minute addition to your dessert spread, here’s a fun cookie with an unexpected burst of apple cider flavor.
Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to come up with cookies based on nebulous ideas. So far, this ongoing experiment has brought you bad day cookies and unicorn poop cookies. Today’s result is what you’d get if you took all the best bits of fall and turned them into a cookie. I give you: the All Things Fall Cookie!
Another week, another cookie. Can anyone really blame me, though? I can’t think of anything more satisfying than a soft, sweet cookie (ok, maybe a warm slice of pie, but it’s a close competition). For an added dose of fun, here’s a cookie that’s so full of cinnamon, butterscotch, and rainbows that it might as well be unicorn poop.
Some days, you just need a cookie. To me, the ultimate bad day cookie is rich, chocolatey, soft in the middle, enormous, and fresh out of the oven. On a recent bad day, I set out to design a cookie that checked all those boxes, and boy, did the result deliver. 😉 Here’s a cookie that’s sure to brighten those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days.
Somehow PBS has already aired 8 episodes of series 6 of The Great British Baking Show, and I’ve only posted one companion recipe so far! I will blame this partly on their weird habit of sometimes showing two episodes on the same day (and often at a different time than the week before), but hey, what can you do? Make arlettes, that’s what!
Happy Independence Day in advance! If you’re looking for a fun and tasty holiday dessert with some added nerd cred, look no further! I bring you slice and bake cookies that look like Captain America’s shield! (So many exclamation points! Excitement! Yea!) After all, who better to grace your holiday dessert table than America’s most patriotic fictional character?
I’m back! Two weeks sure can fly by. In that time, I flew to New York to visit family, baked pie, caught up on reading, and took some time to just catch my breath. Now I’m refreshed and ready to jump right back in with a beloved classic: iced oatmeal cookies.
