I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy

Happy National Cake Day! I baked my first cake around 1990-91, then there was a long gap. I don't remember baking another cake until 2004 or so. In the last couple of years, I have developed an interest in cake experimentation, especially when experimentation involves combining booze and cakes. Here are some of the cakes I have baked in the past: Recipes available upon request, if I can remember how I made them....

I couldn't care less what she'll wear or what she looks like/ It all depends on what she cooks like

I made brownies this weekend, and they got a little overdone, which makes me sad. Why is it that when you burn brownies, it's the edges (the best part) that get burnt, and the middle (the second best part) is just fine? I am going to invent brownies that finish cooking in the middle first, leaving tender, chewy delicious edges no matter how long you cook them for. What's that? My baking ideas aren't based in reality? Well, um... LOOK OVER THERE! *runs*...

Catching up with srah

I'm not keeping up so well with the blogging, since I don't have a working computer at home right now and all of my time is filled with cooking, walking and trying to fix the dangèd computer. Here's a bit of what I've been up to: On Saturday, I fixed Isidore sort of by accident. I started him up, ran through all the repair utility thingies, actually got him going for the first time in weeks, played with him for several hours, backed some stuff up, restarted him to make sure he really was fixed, played with him some more,...

I have something in my pocket that belongs inside my face...

I posted this as a response to a call for brownie recipes in the LiveJournal Cooking community, but it occurred to me that a) you might like to read it too and b) (and possibly more importantly) the front page of my blog was starting to get empty. So here you are: srah's favorite brownie recipe 1½ stick butter 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate 2 cups sugar 3 eggs 2 tsp vanilla ½ tsp salt ½ tsp baking powder 1 cup flour Melt butter and chocolate together in a saucepan, remove from heat. Stir in sugar, then eggs, then vanilla, then...

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night

My marathon of cookie-baking is finally at an end and I am spending the night in Stefan's bed. Unfortunately (or "fortunately", as it is pronounced in Chilean), Stefan is not in it. I knew that I had some chocolate chips and I thought I would use them up before I leave, by making cookies for my SMS students' wee party on Tuesday. When I got home and actually looked, I discovered that although I no longer have a four, I had managed to accumulate 1.5 bags of chocolate chips, a bag of peanut butter chips, half a bag of Hershey's...

Graduation countdown: 35 days

35 days. One of the last things I did, between my final exams and flying home from Grenoble was to make cookies with Sophie. It was something we'd talked about all year, but we never had all of the ingredients. So one day in May, we finally sat down and made them. It was interesting because we had the directions in English and in cups and teaspoons. We had the right measuring utensils, because the Morins had had so many Americans before. We had alsatian raising powder, which was something akin to baking powder or soda or something. We had...
