Is that a genuine compliment from Andy? I'm not sure what to make of it!


Tis the season. I made cookies yesterday, just a basic chocolate-chip cookie sans chocolate chips + some cocoa powder (so, a chocolate cookie) and then I half-dipped them in white chocolate and then rolled the edge in crushed candy canes. I thought they might end up looking really nice and tasting kind of gross, but they were amazing.

They are also gone now. I will make these next.


This reminds me that it's time to make a return visit to the Ghirardelli outlet store in San Leandro!

Anyone know whether you can turn regular oats into quick-cooking by whirling them in a food processor for a few seconds? It seems probable...


Yes, that is indeed a compliment -- perhaps of the highest order!


Quick and regular are pretty much the same; I don't think it matters. Just don't use those packets of instant -- as if you would!


"I have got to learn some basic food photography tips."

Here's my two cent's worth. Use lots of light. Like put the plate of cookies near a window during daylight hours. Then get really close.



I'm not very good myself, but here are some tips I found online and have found to be true: http://www.digicamhelp.com/learn/special-subjects/food.php
