Weekend Bits

That’s what I call sexy time!



Growing up, my parents thought it was perfectly normal to make breakfasts of scrambled eggs with canned beans and canned corn so in that tradition, as a grown up, I like to mix it up a bit.  Sure steamed sweet buns aren’t the most logical choice for dessert after a long winded French affair but my tummy wants what it wants.

“Stop eating cupcaaaaakes!”

This movie was freaking hilarious.  Makes me wanna have someone to be this dysfunctional with.

…and at around 2 am, I stumbled into the kitchen, poking my head into the refrigerator, bathed in its fluorescent light, peering into it as if I could simply will there to be a magnificent 6-course meal.  Of course there wasn’t but I happily settled with cookies.  Cookies always take priority.  I been done told you.  :)

Now, I do acknowledge that I could be biased, but these were seriously one of the best cookies I’ve had the pleasure of sinking my teeth into.  I promise to insert the link when my recipe index decides to play nice.  Update: my site has been acting like I forgot its anniversary or something.  Maybe if we all compliment it on how pretty she is, she’ll act better.  Thank you for bearing with me, y’all! Here’s the recipe (I subbed out all the almonds for 1/4 c of squeezed juice from an orange and the zest of it with melted chocolate for powdered sugar).

They taste like soft, fluffy orangettes, if that makes any sense.  Forget that I had forgotten my socks and my feet were cold or that I’d been plagued with crazy dreams lately.  As I whisked and stirred, the sense of calm that always spills over my body when I’m in the kitchen took over and made silly dreams only matter when reiterating them for a blog.

Thursday night, I was a ….pirate? attempting to flee but my ship got blown up and I watched my two sons perish.  I was grief stricken and swam away, barely concealing myself in a thick tangle of vines.  I was mere inches away from my enemies and then, I wake up.  Friday night, I was running away from bears and wolves and slept in trees while simultaneously playing my piano then somehow, in a library.  Then, I wake up.  How does one get a piano in a tree anyways?  Of course it doesn’t make a lick of sense.  Dr. Freud has some ideas though.

So you see, cookies make sense.  Cookies always make sense.

I hope everyone else had fantastic weekends and only dreamed of cotton candy and intense make out sessions with Hugh Jackman.  Why can’t I ever have those dreams, huh?  I mean seriously, how can a man be this freaking beautiful?!  (and I’ll have you know, he counts as part of my food blog, as you can clearly see, he’s delicious!)


Your Squishy Monster ^.~

    Hi Angie, love your sense of humor, you’re so cute! Always enjoyed your posting and love read what you write. Looking forward to more interesting posting from you in 2013.

    LOL, your weird dream on continuous 2 nights!!!! OMG, I couldn’t stop laughing. :)
    But your orange cookies is yummylicious, agree with you cookies always make sense.

    Have a lovely week ahead,regards.

  • Amy Tong says:

    Oh goodness! Your Orange Chocolate cookies look so serious! Seriously delicious, it is! Yes, I 200% agree with you, cookies always make sense. :)

  • marie says:

    Oh surprisingly enough it doesn’t take that much to be dysfunctional :) I hope you find some one too. And I love the combo of orange and chocolate!

  • Veronica says:

    Bwahaha! OK I have to tell you I used to be nuts about HJ. Like Crazy nuts. After Swordfish came out, something went wrong with me and I would stay up all night at my parent’s house (I worked for my Dad at the time) and print pictures of Hugh from the internet. I think I still have them somewhere but really hope not. Thankfully, the only person I am hooked on now is my hubby. I’m so over Hugh though I agree, he is major hotness. I think I’ve come to an age where hotness doesn’t matter to me any more. Wow. Weird. Oh and I totally had a make out dream about him once. Jealous?

    In other news, I love this cookie. I would rather make out with it in my dreams than Hugh. haha

  • shuhan says:

  • Suzie says:

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I googled it out of curiosity the other day and hm… On the other hand, you guys always sound like you have the best of fun. Makes me happy to hear, Suzie!! =)

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I find Hugh to be irresistible so it was only fitting =)

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Of course it was hollywood but it was as real as hollywood could be, I suppose because I literally burst in laughter so often that my popcorn lasted halfway through the movie which NEVER happens, lol

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    ohhh Hugh…yes, Hugh! =)

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Happy New Year, love! I just saw it and all I could think of was him, haha

  • Saskia (1=2) says:

    Can’t resist a pair of sweet buns, but Hugh doesn’t do it for me! He just seems like a nice Aussie bloke to me. Kevin Spacey, Steve Buscemi and Bill Murray on the other hand… swoon. I know, I have strange taste in men.

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    lol…I like Kevin Spacey too =)

  • Paul Anthony Prince says:

    I could go for some of those chocolate-orange cookies about now ~.^ They do look dreamy!
