Catching Up on Food

Sunday, May 31, 2009

I know I haven't been the best blogger lately. I don't have all that much time, nor do I want to spend every waking moment on a computer. Having to sacrifice the future of my eyes at work for 8 hours a day is enough, so blogging isn't exactly highest priority. However, I have had several people give me a good kick in the pants for not doing it, so I swear I'm going to catch up. I have at least 3 more posts waiting in the wings, just waiting to be typed. I'm not quite done editing all the photos, but I promise I'll throw more your way once they are finished.

In this post, I am going to just show you pictures of food that I have taken over the past month to share with you. I don't feel like typing out all of the recipes, and I know that if I wait to post these until I get that urge, these will never see the light of day. Thus, here's some lovely food porn for you. If you want a recipe, just ask.

The following two cookies are from the Macrina Bakery (based in Seattle) cookbook. My mom gave it to me last Christmas, and I have to say it is one of my favorite baking books. SUCH wonderful baked goods, and I've learned a lot from reading it. Yes, I actually sit down and read cookbooks cover to cover like a novel.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (I think I actually still prefer the Nestle Toll House recipe)

Molasses Ginger Cookies (these were A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.)

Gateau aux Noix (French Walnut Cake-- which I actually didn't like at all. It tasted like bread but had the texture of cake, which just grossed me out. Jess and her family liked it, so I guess it wasn't all that bad.)

Hi Angie,

We don't know each other, but I was searching for a baked goods image to use on our church's Facebook page for our Book & Bake sale and I came across your pic of the choc chip cookies. It's just too perfect! Do you mind if I use it on our FB page? I'll of course give you all the cred. You can find us on FB under St. Rita Catholic Community in Portland, OR.
Thanks for your time,
Mindy Malone

Hi Mindy, Yes, go ahead and use the picture. I can send you a picture without my name watermark on it if you want as well. Just email me at angietjoelker (at) g mail (dot) com. Thanks, Angie
