Not As Good As Pork Cracklins

misadventures in cooking

Thursday, April 17, 2008


I stopped by Half Price Books yesterday. I can't help it. It's a disease. They had Alice Medrich's Cookies and Brownies. For $5.98. How am I supposed to pass that up? (It's $49.99 on amazon today!)

As soon as I got home, I threw together Rocky Road Bars. I remember loving Rocky Road ice cream as a kid. And the picture in the book made me salivate. But I didn't care for them. The graham cracker crust was too crumbly and they seemed overwhelmingly sweet to me. I sent them all to work with Gary. Those guys will eat anything.

Today I made blondies. These are the bar cookie I had a taste for! They are excellent. Very sweet, yes. But I think it's the tablespoon of rum in them that makes them so good. These are NOT going to work with Gary! Well, maybe one.

WOW! Those look amazing! Great with your coffee, I bet.

I love a blondi (or is it blondy?) with a cup of strong coffee to balance out the sweetness. I could go for one of those now.
