My friend and I have been talking about macaroons lately, and we keep reminding each other that they are not macarons (the ones mentioned in my last post). Sometimes we remember to say that the macaroons are Italian to distinguish the two.
I decided to throw a fondue party to celebrate decorating my apartment and getting my life more organized. I invited my friend who did the girl scout cookie tasting with me last year and he bought a whole bunch of beer to use for our dessert course.
I have been dying to make the seven layers of sin bars from the Sugar Cube cookbook (as if I don’t make enough things from there but they are always amazing).
However, this continued the trend for the Northwest meal I made for my friend.
I’ve done a lot of food shopping lately and my stash at home is limited only to chocolate bars so I needed to make some cookies.
I had all kinds of nuts, chips, baking coconut, oats and peanut butter so there was no reason not to have a different kind of dessert.
I’ve been chillin’ with my friends a lot lately so that means I went to Salem again.
One of my friends cooked dinner, which was gourmet broccoli salad, pulled pork with brioche buns and sweet bbq sauce.
Here we are post Christmas and I would like to give a rundown of my favorite cookie treats from this year’s holiday.
On a run to the farmer’s market with my favorite foodie friend (yes, I’ve mentioned him before and will from now on refer to him as my F3 because saying FFF is too hard to say quickly), I asked him to request something for me to bring to his state capital abode when I visit him on the weekend.
I received many a suggestion from him and his house mates, wavering on vague (marzipan) and interesting (more middle eastern desserts).
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. Mostly because its like eating a cinnamon roll without doing a lot of work.
When I was a kid and made these for the first time on my own, I was surprised to learn that they need to be chilled for about an hour before you roll them in the cinnamon and sugar.
