Welcome to My Week on Wednesday… where I take a few minutes to share some of the things I did, and learned throughout the week. And some of the blogs I visited and articles I read.
(Yes, I know it’s Thursday. Sometimes that happens.)
So, right about now, you’re wondering how the Real Food Cookie Adventure I talked about last week turned out.
Yeah, well, did you notice that this week’s post was not about cookies, but rather entitled Irish Eggnog for Christmas? Yes, that would be eggnog with whiskey in it.
And, yes, you can infer from that that my Cookie Making Adventure drove me to drink.
So, what did I learn?
1. I have no intuitive understanding of baking. Throwing stuff in a bowl and hoping for the best–the way I did with my Divine Hot Chocolate (with Red Wine) or Sweet & Savory Sweet Potato Stew–Does Not Work With Cookies. Maybe this shouldn’t have been a surprise… but it was.
2. Sprouted flour anything tastes better on the second day. Sometimes, it is even edible on the second day.
3. The Pixie will eat anything that comes labeled as a cookie… and ask for another one. Even if said cookie is god-awful.
4. You can taste the turmeric.
5. My mother-in-law’s Mexican Wedding Cake recipe is indestructible. Even by me.
6. I will probably bust out the white flour and pure cane sugar at least once before the end of this Holiday Season. I love my mom’s cut-out Christmas cookies… white flour and all.
So after all of my adventures I am left with sickly yellow cut-out cookies that the dog will not eat, a pan of brownies that are almost good, and a very messy kitchen.
And one success story. As it turns out, those Mexican Wedding Cakes are pretty darn tasty.
On the second day.
Hence the second blog post of the week.
