So, I made a bread!

Actually, I did this like a week ago, and kept meaning to make a proper post about it, but I kept putting it off. Okay. Here it is. )

Halloween Sandwich Cookies )

These were a bit of an experiment.



Mocha-Almond Cookies~ )

If I do this again, I'll probably leave the almond flavoring out of the cookies themselves and just put it in the icing; and instead of decorating with coffee icing (the taste is pretty strong) I'll probably use chocolate icing...or just plain old chocolate?

Omg I need to go get another one of these cookies

ETA UNRELATED THINGS

I am super excited because [livejournal.com profile] beasts_and_men is officially my boyfriend partner people now

Second thing, why do I hear fishercat noises outside, it isn't fishercat season here yet 6 n 9 goddamn I hope it's not like, a predatory faerie or something

Actually to be honest that would be exactly as terrifying as a fishercat so I really don't care I just hope whatever it is goes away
potato_head: (6 u 9)
Sorry if the earlier post was obnoxious, I am just legit that excited.

Also sorry for the general flist spam today guys but here have some more photos of my cookies )

I'm also hoping to tempt you all into baking these cookies for yourselves because they are seriously so good oh my god

RAWWWRRRRR

Been awhile since my last baking post, right? Well, it's been awhile since I tried a new recipe, so.

These I found out about from [livejournal.com profile] pwalkeri, as soon as I saw them I KNEW I HAD TO MAKE THEM. I mentioned them to mom and dad and immediately got a request to make them for Superbowl Sunday. So.



SUGAR COOKIE BOWLS. )


Also - I am finding my kind of slapdash method of outlining plots is not working for longer pieces like the er, epic I am working on right now (writing-wise). Does anybody have any recommendations? I feel kind of overwhelmed with the plot and can't get it down.

I had an outline guide that I learned a method from that I really really liked - it seemed very organic and natural to me - but I've lost the guide and forgotten all of it (well, I completely quit writing there for awhile - if y'all didn't notice, even the creepypastas I wrote were all heavily edited - sometimes rewritten - by Amanda). IIRC the guide was by the writer of God Eaters, which should make finding it easy right since I thought he had posted it to his LJ, but...I keep looking and can't find it anywhere I think it should be ;A;

I would go back to my old method of basically keeping it all in my head - since I have a very good (eh, VERY good) memory as long as I can web it, which of course plots and story info do very naturally - and just starting writing scenes with summaries before and after of where they go in the story (this is what I'm doing right now with short pieces like fanfics) but with something of this size I don't think I can do that and still make it as complex as I think it should be.

So I finally found the upload cord from my camera. I got some old pictures off it, plus some I just took yesterday and the day before of Tripper fetching in the snow. He's SO HAPPY ABOUT THE SNOW OMGGG

ARE YOU PREPARED

There are a billion photos here and some of them are really crap. BUT I MADE COOKIES

READY SET BAKE )
potato_head: (8D)
TONIGHT: THE BAKING BEGINS.

Why is it not snowing yet though, my life is so sad I need snow to bake Christmas cookies properly!

Anyways here are the plans thus far!

  • Sugar cookies (new recipe! Because the one I have been using...sucks. I will be making some alterations to this one as well to make them a bit sweeter, also maybe almond extract rather than/in addition to vanilla?)
  • Chocolate sugar cookies (same recipe as always because they are tasty and also Tophercrack)
  • Shortbread cookies with OUR NEW COOKIE PRESS OH MY GOD I AM SO EXCITED and we are dipping some in chocolate and omggggg
  • Stained Glass cookies
  • Gingerbread cookies probably?
  • SNICKERDOODLES and not-snickerdoodles especially for Topher but I will probably eat a bunch as well


I'm probably forgetting some but anyways tonight I am starting by baking some of these to test if they can be altered slightly to make good gift jar cookies. Just going to see if the malt can be added at the same time as the other dry ingredients. I suspect it will be fine.

Also CHECK THESE OUT WTF I HAVE TO MAKE SOME



I wonder if Joanne's sells edible markers?!

So is there anyone who can explain to me in small words like, what Obama is doing in Australia

With that military outpost or whatever

I am really confused and somewhat concerned and the articles I have found are not helping. Are we going to be nuked by Australia and/or China? Why are we staking claims on other countries and why is China so pissed about it? SOMEBODY HALP I FEEL STUPID


Anyways I'm making snickerdoodles later so if we get nuked sometime soon that would suck.
