Ok…yeah…it’s been awhile…a long while. I have been busy and unmotivated to use my spare time to post. I have not, however, been unmotivated to bake. I have made most of the recipes I have missed. To actually get this posted, I am going to keep my reactions short and sweet. From the most current on down…
Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies: After reading the P & Q, I decided not to offer these without a filling. I made two ice cream sandwiches for the kids. Hmmm…I tried one and didn’t go back for a second. Will ate his but didn’t ask for a second. Colin ate three bites and walked away. Not a hit around here. The chocolate flavor was just too weak, I think.
Date/Nut Loaf: Didn’t get to it. I just knew it would not be well received around here and I am not in a position to be the office baker at the moment.
Chocolate Biscotti: I got pretty small cookies. They were good. Biscotti is not really my thing but I was curious about the chocolate. I did take the rest of these to work and they flew off the table.
Blueberry Plain Cake: I was originally planning a post comparing this to the Oatmeal Nutmeg scones but, alas, that didn’t happen. In short, we liked this but ended up not quite eating it all. I can’t really tell you why. Seemed like the perfect breakfast cake to me but maybe (subconsciously for some) we are trying to eat healthier breakfasts.
Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones: Dorie’s scones and I are not friends. Period.
