First- thank you all so much for the well wishes about baby Hugo’s arrival. I am so glad that I had several posts prepared so I haven’t had to worry about anything that cuddling with my babe. I’m feeling really great though and getting the hang of things- so I should be back in the kitchen soon! Also- stay tuned later this week for Hugo’s birth story! (To be found in the “Baby updates” section- found on the top right button on the homepage.)
Onto the cookies: I don’t really watch cooking reality shows too often, but when I do- I have to be honest- they terrify me. Maybe its because as a baker/cook- I can imagine myself in those contestants’ shoes and having to come up with something under a time constraint and it gives me the sweats. I’m not a fan high pressure situations and I like to take my time to come up with recipes and flavor combos.
That being said…last month when my neighbor Melissa had a birthday, I asked her what her favorite flavors in a dessert were. She said- dark chocolate, salted caramel and coffee and also mentioned she liked “milk dipping cookies”- and man did I love the challenge of incorporating all of that into a special birthday treat!
