Guest Post #1: Turtle Hand Pies

Hi everyone, can you believe it? Finally, I am this close to Graduation (Imagine me pinching my pointer finger with my thumb) :D – And with graduation comes performances, baking, class parties, baking, muck up days and lots of baking!

Before I graduate though, here I am ploughing through my workload because before every beautiful part of life, comes this hideous, clawing at your neck part known as my final exams. Eep! And because I cannot bake my butt off right now, I would like you to enjoy a huge range of wonderful guest posters especially chosen just for you! 

So close to the end of school, I can taste it! Au revoir mes cheris!

Turtles. Tuuuurtles. TURTLES! The first word which pops in my head when I think of the super creative, super fabulous Kim from Cravings of a Lunatic - if you have not heard of  her blog, her insanely delicious and crazy blog, where have you been? ;)

A blogging Willy Wonka if you will, you really have to wonder where she gets her ideas for the insane desserts she shares with her readers!
I am sure you guys are going to enjoy this post to kick off my 
guest posts :D – Go Kim! Go Turtles (you shall see why…)

****************************

Hi folks. Let me introduce myself before things get a little nutty here. I’m Kim and I blog at Cravings of a Lunatic. It’s a bit of an indulgent blog, I make things like Trix Krispies and Pink Popcorn. I bake way too much and have a serious penchant for anything sweet. I blog savoury food too, but sweets tend to be my first love.

Burning And Berries

Today, the weather is scorching. I am talking hitting up in the 30s, flies galore and my feet unable to touch the pavement.

Pool, fans, ice cold water – it is all useless today and though I was planning on pulling down my Christmas tree today, it just didn’t happen. These hot days make me want to sit around with the AC on full blast while I eat thick juicy grapes and ice cream with no limit.

I am feeling so lazy today that I am not even posting this blog post till now, when I actually should have done it at least 4 hours ago. I had the pictures (which were taken quite quickly due to the unbearable heat) ready to go and when I sat down on my laptop, BAM – I fell asleep *smiles sheepishly*

15Anyway, this very UV morning, I was lounging around, enjoying a bowl of ripe, sweet strawberries when it hit me. It hit me with fever so hot it was if I had swallowed the sun which is currently outside my window. I wanted perfectly creamy strawberry ice cream.

Finale: Chocolate Chip Based Baking Week

So this is it my friends.
My Chocolate Chip Baking Week is officially FINISHED!

What have I learnt from baking cookie after cookie after ice cream after cookie?

  1. You can never have enough cookies
  2. Every contestant is a winner in its own way
  3. It really depends on your taste that makes for the ultimate, divine, revered ‘perfect chocolate chip cookie’

smileyface_thumbsup

Throughout this week, on basically a daily basis, I experienced crunchy, chewy, crispy, soft, ultra soft, slightly doughy, thick, cakey chocolate chip cookies. Each one, although different in so many areas, always left a sweet lingering comfort in my mouth and an addictive aftertaste which made me cookie, after cookie, after cookie.

Chocolate Chip Baking Week 1: Mrs Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

What makes Mrs Field’s Cookies so fabulous? Is it the soft and chewy factor, the delicious always-freshly-baked smell it gives off or the abundance of chocolate chip cookies? Personally, although they are not my favourite chocolate chip cookie in the marketplace, I think it is that sweet sugary crunch you get with each bite, reminiscent of eating cookie dough where the sugar has not caramelised.

47I was desperately trying to find a recipe for her chocolate chip cookies for this week – it was nowhere on the internet but this site claimed this recipe was legitimate. So I made this recipe and oh my gosh, they were much loved, much revered and had these qualities of the REAL chocolate chip cookie so globally loved:

Introductions: Chocolate Chip Based Baking Week

I have exciting news! And no I am not:

  1. Going overseas (just up to the coast actually)
  2. Buying a car (soon, you’ll all see)
  3. Getting my Ps (a little early I think but in approximately 8 months I shall be a lone driver!)
  4. Running away from home (I can’t even do all those grown up things like ‘balance a cheque book’ or whatever – I knew there was a reason so many people took economics in our school)
  5. Getting a dog (again, I need to be a wee bit older and a wee bit moved out…)

Sugary Lunch

Sometimes I need massive hits of sugar – so much sweetness that I can finally relax and enjoy myself instead of continually nibbling on tid-bits. That is when I have a sweet lunch. It is really simple. I just make 1/4 or 1/8 of a recipe and eat it as my lunch. Nice no?

I have been known to scarf done tubs of ice cream, molten lava chocolate cakes and sometimes even mini microwave cakes on these occasions. Today I was sold on brownies. Specifically these mini delectable s’mores brownies.

You guys know what s’mores are right? This American idea which consists of two digestive biscuits filled with chocolate and marshmallows before being heated in campfire embers (or the grill/microwave) until the mallow is gooey and the chocolate is flowing. I’d say DAM, these brownies do a good imitation of them. Plus they have a brownie included which makes it all the more better no?

So should I make you jealous of my lunch while you healthy normal folk indulged in sandwiches? Yes, yes I think I will.
