Totally gonna make these cookies!

September 26, 2008 at 6:05 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , )

So I found what seems like a good recipe for Pumpkin cookies. I’m going to try it out tonight with the addition of some delicious cream-cheese frosting on top πŸ˜€ . Also I’m not going to add the pecans or walnuts just because I don’t think they need them. Maybe I’ll add some orange food coloring to the frosting to make them brighter too πŸ™‚ . I hope they aren’t too soft seeing as how there’s pumpkin puree in them. It’s not that much so I wouldn’t think they would be, but who knows. I’m excited that this batch makes 3.5 dozen but knowing my fiance’s cookie portions, it’ll probably make closer to 2 haha. The picture of them looks really good and it’s making me super hungry. I’m about to go get dinner and then go swimming so it will be awhile before I can make them. When I get back and finally make them I’ll probably post about them πŸ˜€ and let you know if they’re good or not. Here’s the recipe if you want to try and make them too πŸ˜€ .

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 Β½ cup ap flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch nutmeg
Β½ cup butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 c chocolate chips or raisins
Β½ – 1 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
Whisk together flour, leavening, salt and spices.
In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugars. Beat in egg, then vanilla, then pumpkin. Add flour mixture and stir until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, if using.
Drop by tablespoons and bake for 12-14 minutes at 350F. Bake them until they’re lightly browned at the edges, but not dark.
Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

Thank goodness for Panera

September 20, 2008 at 11:36 am (Food, Random, TV) (, , , , , , , , )

Ok so our internet and cable is completely out so here I am at Panera. Boo no internet (also Panera is lame because it wouldn’t serve me soup 15 mins before lunch despite the fact that the soup was ready when we picked up our food πŸ˜› ). We think the line is down behind our garage but currently we’re not sure. Hopefully it gets sorted out today but who knows. Until then I must find something to occupy myself instead of the WoW filled day I had originally planned 😦 . Until I can post, enjoy the picture of Gir missing his cupcake as much as I miss the internet.

Cool gummies this time I promise

September 7, 2008 at 3:48 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , )

I found something to take your mind off of the horrible gummies I posted the other day. They’re called Big Bite Gummy Bears. I would post a picture of these big bears but they won’t let me have them 😦 .[Edit: I found a size comparison here and they are really big!.] Anyway they cost $15.83 for a package of 6. It’s pretty pricey considering they are just gummy bears. I would imagine that it would take you awhile to just get through one though so maybe they’re worth it. The available flavors are Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Grape, Green Apple, and Orange.

I also found some other cool gummy things starting with chocolate covered gummy bears. *drool* At $7.98/lb they’re also pretty pricey but I bet they are good. It’s also really cool because they don’t just look like blobs, you can really distinguish the bearness πŸ˜€ .

Now an amazing video about making a gummy bear spontaneously combust!

Hannah Montana really likes gummies

September 4, 2008 at 11:33 am (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Ok I hate Hannah Montana so the only reason I’m writing about this is because it’s really funny and kinda makes her look like a whore (not that she didn’t already with that awful wig full of unnatural highlights.) Ok so these are supposed to be guitar shapes but everyone is thinking otherwise. I can only imagine what the microphones must look like. Most of the stories I’ve seen have been saying “look how scandalous her mouth looks.” Uhm, has anyone seen what she looks like all the time? Just like that!

Atleast these aren’t a fleshy color. What will Disney do wrong next? lol.

On a completely unrelated note, look at how cool these new duct tape bandaids are! I think they would hurt to pull off though 😦 .

Phelps is Grrrreeeaaattt!

August 21, 2008 at 10:05 am (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Ok I know that title is bad, but it fits. Michael Phelps is going to be appearing on a box of Frosted Flakes. He should since he probably eats like 6 bowls of it a day. Health experts are freaking out though seeing as how Frosted Flakes isn’t the most healthy alternative of breakfast cereals out there. Rebecca Solomon of Mount Sinai Medical Center says “I would rather see him promoting Fiber One. I would rather see him promoting oatmeal. I would even rather see him promoting Cheerios.” Eeww why would a 23-year-old Olympic gold medalist want to support Fiber One? Promoting that seems to me like he would be saying “Yay it keeps me regular cuz I’m old.” I mean he may look like a monkey, but he’s not old. Besides look at him splashing in the water when he wins. Doesn’t his crazy expression remind you of Tony the Tiger punching the air?

Also, I don’t think that the health experts should be blaming Michael Phelps for “supporting” childhood obesity just because he’s appearing on one slightly unhealthy thing. I mean for goodness sake, he coudl’ve supported Cookie Crisps or something. These health experts didn’t bother to mention how Phelps is trying to get more kids interested in swimming. Gee, I wonder if that couldn’t help to cut down the fat little kiddies. Parents need to take more responsibility for their kid’s food anyways and stop spoiling them with McDonalds every day.

Edit: Here’s the prototype for the box. Enjoy πŸ˜€ .

Deliciousness :P

August 16, 2008 at 11:22 am (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I had planned to have a special post today but while I was playing around with Gimp yesterday it froze up and lost my drawing 😦 .Β  I’ll probably get the chance to work on it later today but until then here’s something fun to look at.

Ok so in case you couldn’t tell I haven’t had lunch yet.Β  I was stumbling and found some really awesome looking food and that’s what I’m going to use to replace my lost drawing 😦 .

Anyways the first is this amazing cake.Β  It’s called “… Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze, though it is actually a Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze, but all you really need to know is that if you know a chocolate-and-peanut-butter lover, you must make this cake,”-smittenkitchen. This cake looks absolutely amazing and considering it’s a cream cheese cake it probably tastes amazing too.
Next a chocolate chip cookie from Levain Bakery. I found it on Cookie Madness. It makes me want chocolate chip cookies really really bad. In the review it says that the thickest part of the cookie was close to an inch and a half. That’s an amazing cookie plus the fact that it looks fresh and melty *drool*. If I ever go to New York I’ll have to hit that place up definitely. Even though they have cookies by mail I doubt they’d be that good after sitting in the mail. Plus it looks like they’re really expensive. For just 4 cookies it’s $22 whoa! It says that amounts to almost 2 lbs. so I guess it’s worth it.
I choose you Pikachu!

I choose you Pikachu!

Yay I love sushi, well veggie sushi anyways. I like the ones with avocado a lot. I found this site with 8 pieces of sushi art πŸ˜€ . Check out the site for yourself because it’s got some more fun sushi pictures including 2 pictures of dragon/caterpillar rolls yay! That koala is super cute too!
Next, Pacman sugar cookies! Omg they are so cute haha. I would make these all the time. Maybe I should look for that ghost cookie cutter. Apparently guinea pigs love them too; if you check out the site you’ll see it haha. I mean who doesn’t like sugar cookies? πŸ˜€

I think that’s enough food surfing for now otherwise I’m going to die of hunger pangs! Hope you enjoyed the list. I might have to make food the regular Saturday topic πŸ˜‰ .

Fruit Salted Plum Suckers

August 11, 2008 at 12:55 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Looking at Thinkgeek today I saw that they had a new product out called Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets. If you eat one of these they’re supposed to make sour things taste sweet. Personally I dunno if I’d want to trip out my taste buds like that. Also, they’re not supposed to have any “harmful” side effects. It’s recommended to dissolve half of a tablet on your tongue but if you suck on the whole tablet the sour-sweet change is stronger. They’re pretty expensive since they cost $19.99. It’s candy people!

After seeing these candies I decided to look up weird foods and found a few worth sharing. First, Seagull wine, take a guess what it is. “Put a seagull in a bottle. Fill with water. Let it ferment in the sun.” – Weird-Food.com. Baby Mouse wine is similar. “Basically a rice wine bottle full of baby mice,” – Weird-Food.com. Except it’s supposed to taste like gasoline. Just what I want to drink gasoline yum.

Scotland has a drink called Irn Bru which I’ve actually tasted. It tastes exactly like pink bubblegum despite it’s bright orange color. Apparently there’s an indoor fair dedicated to it as well. It looks like fun actually.
Edit: [Irn Bru is sold in the US but I think it’s in limited locations. Also if word got out that it’s made from 32 fruit flavors I think Dr. Pepper would be in trouble with it’s 23.]

In my hunt I found more interesting suckers. They’re called Fruit Salted Plum Suckers. They’re coated with a brine salt layer on the outside with a salted chunk of plum (a.k.a. Sabroso) on the inside. I’ve read that the plum is only in the large plum suckers whereas the smaller ones have the plum plastered to the backside. Either way it sounds absolutely disgusting to me :).

I’d much rather have one of these strawberry flamingo suckers :D.
[Edit: Recently these flamingo suckers have been removed from the site 😦 .]

Yet Another Reason I need to go to Jungle Jim’s

August 4, 2008 at 10:39 pm (Food, Random) (, , , , , , , , , )

I saw this “Grown-up Soda” (GuS for short) on aol today and remembered that I think I’ve seen it on the Food Network too. I definitely want to try it. It’s supposed to be just the fruit juice and some carbonation so it’s healthy and delicious. Anyways there’s a few different flavors available but I really want to try the pomegranate one cuz it’s one of the juices that I love. The Cranberry Lime also seems like it would taste awesome but really puckery :D. Anyways I’ve been wanting to go to Jungle Jim’s for awhile now but it’s far away. So I’ll just add this to my list of reasons why for the mean time. Anyways you can find it at several other locations so go try some and tell me how good it is :D.
