fist pump tuesday

November 9, 2010

1. Cute as Cupcakes — The Red Velvet girls give me design envy on a regular basis. I know I shouted out to them last week, too, but this bakery in their new shop is too cha-cha for words. I want to drive to Missouri just for bubble tea and one of Emma’s salted caramel cupcakes.

2. I’m a Lousy Evangelical, Too — I love Rachel Held Evans and sometimes, it makes me laugh and shake my head at how similar we can be. Her list of reasons why she’s a lousy evangelical hit home — because really, I am, too (though I still am not sure if I’d identify myself as one in the first place)…and I think that’s okay.

3. Chocolate Chip Determination — I have never tried a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I actually liked. Ever. I’ve tried probably a dozen and none of them have ever worked out right. All I want in life is the trifecta of cookie perfection — soft in the inside, just enough chocolate and crispy on the outside. Maybe it’s me (it might be me) but after last week’s HOLLOW chocolate chip cookies (seriously — how does that even happen?), Miss Molly’s Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies are my last attempt. For now. Until I try to crack this egg yet again. Let’s hope this one works.

What is making your fist pump this week?

    These might be a little too soft for your liking, but my high school friends and I swore by the recipe that came on the back of the…. (get ready to gag)…. butter-flavored Crisco Sticks. We also were very specific about the cooking time – only 9 or 11 minutes in the oven, and then let them cook up a bit on the hot pan while cooling. This makes them extra gooey.

    But they were really so good. Next time you are cooking for your non-foodie friends/family who won’t judge you for your recipe choice, you should try them out 🙂

    @ Jessica!

    I don’t know about the butter-flavored part, but I could always sub butter (the real stuff) in! 🙂 Thanks for the tip, JT!
