Thick and chewy triple-chocolate cookies

The best things come in small (pretty) packages.

Behold! Probably the best cookie in the world.

At least, I think so. One could even make the argument that this tastes more like cake than it does a cookie–but why quibble over delicious little details?

Quick update

Hey everyone,

I’m just dropping a quick line to let you know of two additions to the blog that I have been working on:

  1. You will find a Recipe Index page, which includes every recipe as they are posted. For those who haven’t checked it out yet, you will find it is organized and wonderful:

  2. I have (finally) added a “Printer-friendly version” link to each recipe. You will find the link just above the ingredient listing:

Posting once a week for 2011

…and cutting down on carbs. Let’s see if I can do it.

Now, I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions. In fact, when asked if I have one, I usually scoff and say, “Yeah right. Like the first day of the year is better than any other day of the year to make a promise to yourself. They get broken within a week.” Well, I never even make those promises to myself during the year, so I figured I should just zip it and try. Continue reading

Your apathy ends here.

It’s been a while since I got up the nerve to document anything, let alone publish it to a discerning audience. After months of lamenting over the free time I had, I decided to effectively put an end to being young, hungry and listless.

The plight of many twenty- and thirty-somethings is how little time we (think we) have to be creative or prepare Real Food, and the excuses that go along with it. We all have instances of coming home after a long day of sitting in front of a computer screen, running around or working labouriously over anything translates to: Don’t even try it, I’m not making a damned thing. This of course leads to standing in front of the refrigerator, staring at condiments and keeping cool, or popping by the corner store or fast food “restaurant” to sustain us because it’s just easier. But when you break it down, it’s neither.

So my goal is simple: I’m going to prove that you don’t need a lot of money (I’m certainly skint) or a lot of time (check!) to make food for yourself on a daily basis. Even if three nights a week is all that’s going to cut it, it’s better than nothing and you can tell your mom that yes, you are eating properly, and yes, you do know how to cook. I’m not proposing anything mental here; I’m just saying it can be done. In the coming weeks I will be posting recipes and photos of the food I have attempted to make, along with adaptations and attributions. Let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions, that would be amazing.
