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.)
Soba Noodle Bowl with a Garlic Ginger Asian Dressing
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.)
