And they all came falling down…

December 13th, 2008

I’m sure I have complained about my kitchen before but I am going to again.  It is so SMALL!!!!  The first batch of these amazing fudgey cookies had a very short life when, trying not to burn myself while closing the oven, I balanced the pan on the stove and it went toppling over.  It is driving me crazy!  One of the reasons, I do not cook as much as I used to is that I do not have the counter space.

Well, the other main reason is I just don’t have the time.  I’m sorry I have been so absent from the food blogging world.  I have been studying away and now am happy to say, I have only one exam left!  The semester has been really busy, stressful and exhausting but also fun, interesting and rewarding.  Although sometimes I wish my brain would stop picking out torts and contracts in my everyday life, I have learned a lot this semester.  I miss cooking though.  I am embarrassed to admit that I’ve been living on grilled cheese, salads, and pasta.  Just a few more days though and I plan to start cooking again!

Now, about these cookies…Sara of Ms. Adventures in Italy participated in the blog tour for Anita Chu of Dessert First and her new cookbook “Field Guide to Cookies: How to Identify and Bake Virtually Every Cookie Imaginable.  Sara made the Pistachio and Chocolate Crinkles Recipe and I have been thinking about those cookies ever since. This morning, I decided it was time to make them. They were great…little cookies of brownie-like goodness!  They were also very easy to make.  To check out the interview with Anita, the blog tour plus the recipe for these amazing cookies jump on over to here.

    Are you ready to get your Christmas Cookie on? We have to do something in between all the beer and football.

    Hey, don’t worry about it, that’s what RSS feeds are for. But grilled cheese subsistence?!!? No no no!! Kidding :)
    Those cookies are DANGEROUS. I usually eat about 2 dozen before I realize they’re not really that light!

    I didn’t cook much at all when I was in school! :) But I’d love some of these cookies right now!

    These cookies look fantastic! I know what you mean about small kitchens. My kitchen has 1 drawer and has have enough counter space to put 1 cutting board and the rest is all a balancing act. Good luck on your exam!
