Our oven is still being sassy. Which is the pits because it’s warm food and baking season! The weather even currently matches! Hopefully it will be fixed soon. In the meantime, we got the idea to make little microwave mug cakes! A fun evening treat to mix up after baby bedtime. (ps- it says two minutes, which is the cooking time, but then it says wait 15 minutes for cooling. So it’s kind of a lie, but still fun.) Do you have any favorite no bake or microwave treats we can try??
Since I’ve been feeding this little guy around the clock, I have a never ending craving for cookies. I froze some chocolate chip cookie dough before he came, but I had a bit of time to whip up something different over the weekend. These flourless chocolate almond cookies turned out very good, and (comparatively) healthy too!
Are these not the most adorable cookies you have ever seen? I took a picture of these before they went in the oven just in case something terrible happened in there, but thank goodness, they came out looking just as good. And they are even fully edible! Although I don’t know how you could eat one, instead of just filling your pockets with them.
There is always such drama when baking a new recipe. Is the bottom getting too done? Is the top done enough? Are they going to dry out if I leave them in longer? Luckily, this drama had a happy ending. I used this recipe, except I added mini chocolate chips instead, for cuteness.
Did you do any baking last weekend? We wanted to make a pie for the long weekend, and we finally decided on chocolate cream. I topped it with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, and it looked really pretty, but everyone was so eager to dig in that I didn’t get a photo. It tasted even better than it looked!
