I realize I have been gone for quite some time... I haven't given up cooking, or blogging. Nope, no chance of getting rid of me that easily! I have, however, been ridiculously overwhelmed with school. BOO!! School!!
Today, I have a little reprieve, though. From school anyway. We're having a cookie exchange at church tomorrow - and each person is supposed to bring 3 dozen cookies to exchange. What does that mean in my world? It means..... even if we bring a dozen of each type... and there are 12 people exchanging .... we would each get one cookie of each kind. That kinda freakin blows! I hope other people have considered this and will also bring more than one dozen of each type. Plus, I have never found a cookie recipe that only makes 12 cookies. That is stupid. Who in his/her right mind would only want 12 cookies? Nobody, that's who!
Soooooo - I'm making 6 (yes, I'm making my mom's flavors, too) kinds of cookies - and when I say cookies, I mean I'm going to make some biscotti and peppermint bark and pretend like that equals cookies... because I want biscotti and peppermint bark, dammit!
Hopefully, I can get this accomplished, and get at least a couple of recipes (or extreme failures) posted for you folks this week - turns out I have a couple of vacation days.... someone should pressure me in to excessive blog posts while I have the chance!
