Hello again friends!
It has been so dang busy around here! And not in the FUN way.
Can we real talk for one moment? What the hell SEPTEMBER is almost over? What happened to my summer? I completely missed it! I don’t remember participating in it one bit. It never got hot, I never went to the beach. I think I took a swim once! I want a REMATCH. As much as I love Halloween fall can FUCK RIGHT OFF. I am not ready. I am hitting the snooze button on this one. Take your pumpkin bread and SHOVE it.
Okayyyyyy – what we are here for – let’s get to it – to it.
Remember my other rumbles with testing those Pinterest pins? Check them out if you haven’t. Go look again anyways, I’ll wait.
Round 1 – Image Transfers
Round 2 - Leave room for Jesus
Well today is another PINTESTER MOVEMENT – round 3 for me! I was a little LATE to the party on this one. I went looking through saved pins for something quick. That’s the point of some of these pin’s right? Life hacks, quick meals and SNACKS. Well this time I actually need something quick and easy so this is a REAL LIFE TEST. Real life folks. FOR REALS.
Go on over and check out what all the other testers are working on at the Pintester Movement – I promise it will be worth it!
And check out Sonia’s Site – Pintester for all round hilarity
I decided to try the 2 – Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie for One
A couple things to note here:
A chocolate chip cookie, FOR ONE. Could there anything more sad cat lady than that? Oh don’t mind me, in my sweatpants, on a friday night, making a GIANT COOKIE for me, myself, and I. Thanks Pinterest for making me feel awesome! The worst part is I got a flu shot on friday and I was feeling under the weather, and made this in mah sweatpants. I will mention they were my fanciest sweatpants though.
Here is the recipe:
- 2 tbsp (3O grams) unsalted butter,softened
- 1 1/2 tbsp (2O grams) white granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp (2O grams) brown sugar
- 2 tbsp (3Oml) beaten egg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 tbsp (60 grams) all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- pinch salt
- 1/4 cup (40 grams) chocolate chips
That’s it. No other instructions. No when to add, how to mix. SUPER. I picked a winner here friends. You are WELCOME.
Since I bake cookies often I just went in the order I would do that. Here we go:
Everything worth anything starts with butter….
2 dang tablespoons – for one – one for each of your buttcheeks. These are supposed to be softened.
Annnd too much. Oh well – off to a smashing start. Next add the brown and white sugars.
This is an equal opportunity cookie. That is a lot of goddamn sugar for one cookie.
Next we add two tablespoons of a beaten egg. This part annoyed the crap out of me. Egg waster.
And it was hard to measure. Mix Mix Mix. Fork Fork Fork.
Now add flour, vanilla (that’s the dark spot) baking soda and some salt!
I have an easy bake oven – I should have popped it in there - next time!
1/4 cup of chocolate chips! SO MANY! of course anything with THIS MUCH is going to taste good! CHEATERS!
Since there are no instructions I am assuming the 2 mins was the cook time? On High? Sure!
Nuking the ever loving shit out of my cookie. Contemplating what has gone wrong in my life.
I think I see jesus in the reflection.
Here it is folks. Overwhelmed aren’t you. Meh. Me too.
This tastes like an ok stale, dry cake. It was ok. Mom and Dad joined in the tasting (they are GREAT SPORTS) Mom said ehhhh – as we kept eating.
Dad said, It’s good, but walked away. That means he was being polite. The walk away is a true sign.
We put chocolate sauce on, MINOR improvement.
Oh where do I begin. I don’t know why I continued with a pin that had no instructions. If you have all these baking ingredients – MAKE A REAL FUCKING COOKIE, maybe a whole dozen. Share them with others. This cooking for one in the microwave is dumb. That being said I ate the entire thing.
• Have you seen Jesus in your microwave?
• Do you have a favorite snack/microwave recipe?
• Should I have used more chocolate chips?
• Can I have your cat?
Until next time – don’t be a stranger!
