The alternate title for this post was “You say pain killers, I say cookies.”
I couldn’t decide.
Probably because of the pain killers. Ha!
I may be down, but I’m not out of the kitchen, and I have been bakin’ up a little love courtesy of two of the sassiest, snappiest and most seductive ladies of the net…Celine and Joni.
Running the Paris Marathon might not happen (just yet), but I am embarking on a marathon of recipe testing for their upcoming collaborative cookbook project. Uh huh. You may now officially begin drooling my friends.
Chewy Ginger Cookies
Guppy & I had a little collaborative effort of our own in the kitchen – this of course would explain the purple sprinkles. These have become my new favourite ginger cookie ever! I wuv these cookies, and so did Guppy. We ate them all (there weren’t too many, honest!). Don’t tell Monsieur F we made them, K? He’ll never know…
But don’t you go feeling all sorry for M. Fish on me, because he got to go crazy with these :
Toasted Pine Nut & Chive Soda Rolls
There is a magical recipe for soda rolls that is going to make you think that Celine invented the wheel or something. Which she did. Didn’t she? This recipe is as flexible as a poll dancer kids – I opted for the toasted pine nuts & chives because I thought they would go nicely with the “lets put all the left-over veg and pasta in a big pot with some veg stock and call it soup” I was making. And they did. In fact, they were so classy and sophisticated (yet refreshingly down to earth, like me! Ha!) no one really paid much mind to the tasty yet strange looking soup in their bowls. Right on.
More test recipes to come my hungry friends.
“As flexible as a poll dancer”. You’re hilarious, or is that your painkillers talking? 😛
You mean Celine did NOT invent the wheel? The Soda Roll looks divine!
How have I not heard about this upcoming cookbook?!? You lucky tester, you!
yum!!! you had me at purple sprinkles (so random, I love it), but those rolls look even better if possible.
Sweets and baked goods are the best sort of medicine, if you ask me. 🙂
Ciao ! I’m so sorry for your foot ! It must be very painful and a terrible nuisance !I hope the pain will be over soon ! I’ll try the cookies really soon ! Knitting isn’t too hard, you are so good that it will be very easy!
I’m with Ricki – was there an announcement??? I’ll buy any book that Celine’s had a hand in writing! Those soda rolls are genius!
i’m hungry as hell after look’n at these glorious goodies! oh my goodness, Shelly! hooray for all the yumminess! i love love LOVE the purple sprinkles! sounds like you and Guppy are the baking queens of deliciousness! yay!
those soda rolls look like they came from God. i am just in AWWEEEEE right now. haha celine really knows her stuff.
I think you may need an additional taste tester in the kitchen… plane tickets to France aren’t that pricey, right? 😉
