Ever gotten bored? Stupid question, of course, you have, but have you ever gotten bored of something you positively adore? It’s a hell of a lot worse than being generally bored, right? You expect that adored something to bring stimulation or even joy but, inexplicably, it doesn’t, it’s just meh. That’s how I feel about ginger molasses cookies.
Happy Halloween, guys! I know your social feeds must be flooded with hot dogs carved into fingers and ghoulish dry ice cocktails, but you won’t find any of that here. Here we’re going to keep it classy, decidedly less fun and exceptionally more difficult. Are you sorry you stopped by yet? Well, take heart because these Chocolate Pumpkin Mousse Cakes with Burnt Caramel are definitely worth the effort.
You guys! Summer is here and I am ecstatic! I’ve been in a state of euphoria for the past two days, which is a good thing and a bad thing. It’s a good thing because, you know, it’s euphoric. It’s a bad thing because I constantly have to remind myself that I can’t sit in the sun and get day drunk for the next two months – it’s very disappointing. I don’t think I will ever get over the buzz kill that is adulting in the summertime. But I can soothe my inner sprinkler-loving child with these Bourbon Butterscotch Ice Cream Sandwiches. Okay, the bourbon is more for adult Susan than child Susan if you want to split hairs.
The weather continues to force me to make my own sunshine. It’s cool! I can totally handle it – I’ve got Meyer lemons. And when life hands me Meyer lemons I make not only lemonade but all sorts of things. Last year it was these adorable cakes (excuse the photos, I didn’t know what I was doing yet), this year it’s these Meyer Lemon Alfajores.
