fist pump tuesday
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?
