Just testing the image uploading features.

Yup.  It appears to work.

And now I want a chocolate chip cookie.  Homemade, gooey ones, fresh out of the oven.

I'm just your typical depressed donkey. I'm an abuse survivor. I deal with the pain and stiffness and other fun stuff that goes with fibromyalgia. I used to teach English for a living but because of my health, that isn't any option anymore. I love to cook and feel most in my element when I'm in the kitchen tinkering around.

  1. mmmmm. cookies. every month or two, i get inspired to make chocolate chip cookies. i mix up a double batch of cookie dough, and keep most of it in the fridge, and just make a few cookies at a time, so the cookie dough will last for a couple of weeks. yum.

  2. I wonder how cookies would bake up in a toaster oven (that has no temperature settings). That, of course, assumes I can find everything I would need to bake cookies here.

  3. That’s a pic for my students (we’re setting up a little restaurant).

    I could have used the picture of the salad, but what fun would that have been?

  4. No, no, no — not gooey right out of the oven. The perfect chocolate chip cookie is out of the freezer, once the chocolate has had a chance to reassume its proper texture.

    I like the idea of making a few at a time.

    And testing the toaster oven — why not? See what happens. Especially low-risk if you do one cookie at a time until you figure out if it works.

  5. I wonder just how long it would take to cream the butter and sugar by hand. There are days I miss a proper kitchen.

  6. I usually do it by hand — too lazy to get out the hand mixer and then have more things to wash later. The texture isn’t exactly the same, but it isn’t different in a bothersome way. If you let the butter sit out for a bit to get to room temperature, it’s just a matter of mixing them well.
