Hey, remember when I wrote that, uncharacteristically, I was actually seeing someone? Well, characteristically, I already dumped him. You know what that means, right? It means a triumphant return to baking! I wish I could say that I was in pain about it, because that would make me feel like I was a normal person, instead of a cold-hearted person who prefers her oven over most men, but I'm really not suffering. I'm actually pretty at ease with my aloneness. Not that I'm really alone -- my life is highly peopled. I just don't date. I think that maybe my older sister and I will live together eventually and become old maids together. That might be fun.
Lazy Samoas from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar! Yayy! These little chocolaty, coconutty treats are the vegan version of the classic Girl Scout cookie, and they're just my kind of cookie: small in size (I like l'il cookies), far simpler to make than they look, and -- most importantly -- so so pretty! It's really important to me that my baked goods LOOK nice. Maybe I'm shallow. But I'm convinced that people enjoy baked goods more if they look impressive or cute. It's one of the reasons why I generally prefer to make a complicated cookie instead of a drop cookie. Drop cookies just don't look as nice, although one can, in theory, work hard to shape up uniform drop cookies that look pretty good.
