I’d like to proudly say that this is my first actual original recipe. I’ve tried out tons of other French onion soup recipes but so many of them call for wine, or they’re too complicated with all these random liqueurs to put in them. I say, NOTHXGAIZ cause that requires extra money at the LCBO and I’d rather spend that money on flour or sugar for my next baking endeavour =P
PEW PEW! I decided to embrace the ultimate nerd baker in me this weekend by making these really awesome yet really time consuming cookies. It was like, let’s take the inner child that still wants to play with PlayDoh, but make that PlayDoh delicious and edible. Not like Poseidon’s salty sphincter. Happy Belated Birthday to Matt! I told you I’d make these for your birthday like ages ago…so, here they are! I have a dozen set aside for you. Cause you rock.
Or should I say, Lisa’s Peanut Butter Cups? Doesn’t have the same delectable ring as Reese’s though. I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate about as much as I love lemon. I’m actually surprised I haven’t done more posts using this delicious combination of flavours. But yeah, these were actually really easy to make. I thought that it’d be hard to coat the sides in chocolate evenly, but alas, it wasn’t.
I think one of my favourite things about camping are the s’mores. Graham crackers with melted chocolate and ooey gooey toasted marshmallow squished in between. Accompanied by a glass of cold milk. YUM. But yeah, when I first started baking, joyofbaking.com was basically my go-to-guide for baking. I really like that website because the creator, Stephanie, always puts really cool histories of the recipe into her introductions.
Hmm. I’m going on a little bit of a food blog RAMPAGE right now. But it’s because there are so many things I want to make! In my last post I talked about things I ate at the wedding I was just at; this soup wasn’t at the wedding but it was something Chris’ mom ordered at a restaurant. It seemed really intriguing and I wanted to try it. It was quite interesting, to say the least.
