Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. On top of each other. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale.

WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. Makes 24 cookies. Stay hungry, my friends. Malted Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. I usually whip up cookies in no time, with no problems. These? No. They were too flat, they were too crispy, the bottoms were burnt before the centers were done, they had too many calories, etc. Okay, so I fixed all of the problems, except for that last one.

Calories are delicious, so I decided to just leave that alone. This recipe is from Taste of Home, but I changed it up a bit to turn these into bars. It only took me three test batches before I got the idea. Don’t even ask what happened to the test batches. Now, y’all know that I do quite a lot of baking, so when I say that something is just plain fabulous and a new favorite, I hope you’ll know that I mean it.

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes.

“Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream.

This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it.

Jordana. Twice Baked Potatoes, Two Ways. Hiiii Abby!!! This blog post is dedicated to Abby. Abby emailed me a few weeks ago requesting a recipe that could be made in the microwave.
