look, cookies March 23, 2007Posted by kiki in dessert, Uncategorized.
i know it’s been a long time since i’ve posted, but with all the procrastinating and the avoiding cooking tactics and the whining about how my computer doesn’t like wordpress i just haven’t had the time. i felt guilty though. i’m the one who said i wanted to learn how to cook, nobody twisted my arm. so in the spirit of being a big girl, i borrowed some ready to bake cookies and an oven and voila!
yummy cookies. it wasn’t so bad. i might even do it again.
adventures in fruitcake January 13, 2007Posted by kiki in dessert, Uncategorized.
somewhere in october i became obsessed with fruitcake. i’d never had it or really had an interest in it before, but i had to make one or two or three. the more i tried to dismiss the idea the worse it got. i had to make fruitcake. so, after taking out a loan to afford the ingredients i found a recipe and got to work.
i had to take a picture of these because i think they look like sugar glazed water bugs.
and then baking
actually, the hardest part was remembering to douse it in rum every week for a month or so. fruitcake definitely requires planning.
it was totally worth the effort, so delicious and pretty too.
would you like to make a fruitcake of your very own? (more…)

first, just let me say that although i followed all of the directions pretty closely i did not have a proper pan to cook it in. it doesn’t really say in the recipe either but you should use a shallow pan so you have more room for the dough. as you can see, my dough got all scrunched together. i also think it would have cooked better in a different pan. i also do not own an electric mixer so i had to do it all by hand, poor me. that said, it was pretty delicious and even better the next day. it turned out pretty good for my first time working with any type of dough besides store bought cookie dough, which by the way caused a nice footstompin’ hissyfit when i couldn’t get it to stop sticking to the counter, the rolling pin, me…
