If I haven’t already mentioned it, I moved 7 states over without my Kitchen Aid mixer. In fact, I moved to Memphis without a lot of things, but that’s besides the point. LOL. I’m having to “make do”. Honestly, it’s not too, too terrible for now. Emphasis on the “for now”.
I’m happy to say this blog will get top billing of my free time from here on out. I neglected it for far too long (okay, only 3 months, but still!). I’ve been compiling a list of recipes I’m fixin’ (hey, a Southern vernacular snuck in) to make in the next few months without my beloved kitchen appliance. Lately, taking the easy way out has been my m.o. (there I admitted it!). I’ve been baking brownies and trying the various Nestle break-apart cookie doughs. Gonna hold out as long as I can from buying all the staple ingredients real bakers use, like hmm, flour….sugar…baking powder… since there’s really no point. That’s like being all dressed up with nowhere to go! C’mon, how fun is thaat? And until my mixer somehow makes its way towards my neck of the woods, the oven is still being put to good use. Here’s proof:

And while I occasionally enjoy a peanut butter cookie, I really can’t say these are worth a cookie dough run (similar to a “beer run”), LOL.
On the other hand, these babies are worth having in your freezer at ALL times.
The other Nestle batch I like is:

Either one will be ready to eat in 20 minutes, except the Turtle Cookies…..hold off for as long as you can while they’re cooling. Trust me on this. 🙂Tweet
