Chocolate Chip Stout Cookies Plus How Blow Jobs And Shoe Shopping Are Alike Look around this time of year, past the flowers, chocolate, $165 pre fixe menus and you’ll smell the stench of panic. Forced romance will never live up to the expectations that Hallmark has bestowed upon us and all that is left is waiting for the inevitable disappointment. Each partner either trying desperately to figure out what the other one wants, or giving up and trying just to get through it all unscathed. Attempting to discern what the other person wants, what seems to be an illusive mystery of epic proportions, is in actuality, very simple. The truth is, we aren’t as different as we think. Men and women want the same thing out of a relationships, we just get it in different ways. “But I want you to WANT to do it. Of course, women say that a lot, and these same women don’t stop to think about what it is that the men in their lives are thinking that exact same sentence about. Blow jobs.

Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices A sweet and tangy watermelon lime sorbet is a great way to cool off in the summer. As a bonus, this recipe is frozen back in the watermelon rind and cut off into slices. It’s hot. The type of heat where when you step outside the door and your skin is wet before the door swings shut behind you. It’s a hot that hangs in the air, letting you breathe it in, that is cured only by two things: being completely immersed in water or hiding indoors, the air conditioning cranked as far as it will go.I find that the heat makes me very unmotivated to do things like take a walk, water and weed the garden (though I have forced that one on myself) and prepare food and eat it. When your simple syrup is cool and watermelon chunked, blend them together in a food processor or blender until smooth. Cool the liquid completely in the refrigerator for a few hours. This then goes into the freezer. There’s nothing like a slice of watermelon on a warm summer day, especially when your slice happens to be sorbet.

New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies (Treats for Co-Irkers) I'm fairly certain that all food bloggers eventually get around to blogging about the world famous chocolate chip cookie recipe from the New York Times. This week seemed like a good week for me to throw in my two cents and tell you what I think about the recipe. And, since these cookies are going to work with hubby tomorrow, we'll be able to find out what the co-irkers think of them too. This review is slightly tainted however, because upon reading the recipe and making my shopping list for the ingredients, I failed to notice that the dough must rest in the fridge for 24 hours before baking. In hindsight, which still remains 20-20 even though the rest of my vision has gone to hell in a hand basket, I could have gone to Wal-Mart in my pajamas because if your local Wal-Mart is anything like my local Wal-Mart, you see people in their pajamas all the time. OK, back to the tainted recipe. Chocolate Chip Cookies (modified slightly from the New York Times) 1. 2. 3. 4. The verdict?

Individual Monkey Breads. Biscuits, butter, sugar, cinnamon. I think that’s all I need to say about this one. This stuff is astoundingly good. Monkey Breadfrom Ryan via The Pioneer Woman 3 cans Buttermilk biscuits (not the flakey kind)1/2 cup brown sugar1 cup sugar2-3 teaspoons cinnamon2 sticks butter Preheat the oven to 350. Open up all three cans of biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters. Next, combine the white sugar with 2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon. 3 will be really cinnamon-y. Drop all of the biscuit quarters into a bundt pan (or jumbo muffin cups). Melt the butter with the brown sugar in a sauce pan over medium-high heat until combined. Bake for 30-40 minutes (or 20 minutes for the muffin cup ones) until the crust is deep brown on the top. I should now say that you should let it cool for about 15-30 minutes, but that’s practically impossible. Oh man, it’s good.

No Sugar Oat Drops When I first saw this recipe I was intrigued by the fact that these have NO sugar, butter, eggs or anything that can be considered unhealthy. Always on the hunt for things to throw at my kids at feeding time, I gave them a whirl. They are amazing, surprisingly light, incredibly filling and tasty, you can mix and match the ingredients to get a different result each time, adding different seeds fruits or nuts.You can freeze them wrapped individually and have a easy breakfast on the go. 1 1/2 cups regular rolled oats (use whatever type of oats you like) 1 cup coconut flakes 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/4 cup of almond meal (or nutmeal of your choice) ( If you want to make it nut free you could use a flour, just adjust the wet ingredients to get the right consistency) 1/2 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped 1 cup dried fruit (of your choice or chocolate chips or berries) Preheat oven to 175C. Take a large cookie cutter and press spoonfuls of the batter into it.

Japanese Cheesecake There are cakes which look absolutely stunning and gorgeous on the outside, but when it comes to the taste, it disappoints, and you just wished that it tasted as good as it looks. I've had a lot of those experiences, and in fact, I think I've made a few of cakes like that myself! What I love about a good Japanese cheesecake is that while in appearance it resembles a humble (and perhaps, plain or boring?) sponge cake, but the minute you put it into your mouth, you want to close your eyes and go 'hmmmmmmmmmmmmm'. We all go through phases, don't we?! Right out of the oven...hmmmmm.
