Bridge Over Troubled Cookies

My visiting friend and I are making a couple more recipes out of the chocolate chip cookbook. Surprisingly for a Chronicle cookbook, there appear to be some… problems… in this one. There were multiple things in the cheesecake bar-cookie recipe that left us scratching our heads in confusion; I’ll give you more detail in the inevitable review. I’m looking forward to getting a digital camera at the end of next month; this is the sort of thing where I’d love to be able to post pictures of the ways in which a recipe clearly isn’t coming out as it should. Next we’re making a berry-chip cake, and some ‘make-ahead mashed potatoes’ to bring to a friend’s house this weekend.

Then maybe I’ll indulge in some World of Warcraft; I’m rather enjoying all the new content from the latest patch!

Today’s review is a sneak peek at Christie Ridgway’s How to Knit a Wild Bikini.

    Berry-chip cake sounds delicious. I have to bake some goodies tonight for a bake-sale tomorrow. Not really sure why I procrastinated, but I’ll be searching my cookbooks tonight for something good.

    Trish: Mmmm. Bake sale sounds like a wonderful opportunity to cook! 😀 I love opportunities to bake sugary things that also give me an excuse to give most of the results to other people. That way I can enjoy a taste but not eat waaaay too much.

    Too bad about the recipe problems. I am generally a big fan of Chronicle’s cookbooks. So well designed and great topics.
