Well, it’s probably quite obvious to you all that I’m struggling with my little blog. I just don’t know what to talk about anymore! I get a couple sentences into a post and decide it’s dumb and decide to scrap it.
Part of it is because I’ve been completely uninspired and unsuccessful in the kitchen as of late. I mean shoot, not only have I lost some creativity, my “regular” dishes have been disastrous. Whether I burn it, under-cook it, forget an ingredient…poor Craig.
And when I find a new recipe to try I always ask if it’s a “keeper.” Sadly, Craig has most often replied, “nah, I don’t think so.” I’ve been in total agreement, so I haven’t had anything new or exciting to share with you all.
Moving into the holiday season, I’m excited to bake cookies and other holiday treats. My first round of peanut butter blossoms, inspired by my wish to surprise my ma with some chocolate stars, were okay. I invested in some new, nice cookie sheets and some of the bottoms still found a way to get a little too dark (while the tops looked a little under-cooked). What the H is going on!?
Side note: Did you know that my mom in Texas and my aunt in Colorado request for chocolate starts to be sent to them? Apparently, you can find them just anywhere. And who wants to unwrap Hershey kisses like that?! I mean, really.
I’m wondering if part of my trouble is my transition to a gas oven. Do any of you have any tips, tricks, or things to consider? I simply won’t be able to survive a holiday season if I can’t get my cookie fix!
That cookie picture totes isn’t mine. But aren’t they beautiful!? I love ’em. If you click the picture, it will take you to the source.
