Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday, but everyone seems to be busy including myself so we decided to acknowledge it today. My dad isn’t a fan of chocolate anything so I was on a mission to make him a cake that was tasty but not boring (also not COMPLETELY labor intensive). So, I made a buttermilk cake with lemon filling and used *regretably* store bought white icing; it also had some shredded coconut here and there. The reviews from my mother, sister and father were great and I thought it tasted delicious as well. But, next time different icing.  After the cake was done being made, but prior to being eaten, I finished Elke’s Texas Longhorns tattoo and after it’s healed will post pictures.

Soon, I will be back at school not enjoying the great weather of Southern California. My fourth of July weekend was fun and being home at this point feels better. A couple of weeks ago I went out and celebrated a friend’s birthday, now the couple is engaged! Also, I made a delicious breakfast yesterday which I have documentation of, and here are some pictures from this past weekend..

Memorial Weekend

The weekend has been relatively unexciting, just some working, hanging 0ut at home, OH and my bestfriend graduated from Chapman this weekend. Congrats Elke!!! So proud. Been going to the gym and stuff lately so that’s.. fun. Here are a couple of snap shots from the past week.

I made more cookies today as a Christmas present to my dear friend Appel. He has an obsession with Nutella that is completely understandable, so a found a neat recipe for Nutella Cookies.

The Recipe can be found here.

But, here is the process of what I did. All in all the recipe was good, although I almost think that there are too many hazelnuts in it and the cooking time is a little longer than it stated for me.

This entry will be solely dedicated to the cookies I made yesterday and the day before. They all turned out great, and everything was made from scratch, including the icing on the gingerbread cookies. So here are some play by play photos and recipes for you!

2/3 Cup Granulated Sugar

2/3 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Butter (Softened)

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

2 Eggs (medium or large)

1 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

3 Cups Quick Cooking or Old Fashioned Oats

1 Cup Flour

3/4 Cup Fresh Blueberries

Preheat oven to 375 Degrees.

Mix all ingredients except Oats, Flour, and Blueberries in a large bowl with spoon (thoroughly).

Stir in the rest and place in oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Gingerbread Cookies:

3 Cups Flour

1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon Ground Ginger

1 3/4 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves

6 Tablespoons Butter (Softened)

3/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

2 teaspoon Vanilla

In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

In a large bowl beat butter, brown sugar and egg on medium, add molasses and vanilla. Gradually add the other dry ingredients.

Divide dough and wrap them, place in refrigerator for 2 to 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roll dough flat and cut into desired shapes, heat for 7 to 10 minutes.

And then I made the Icing:

2 Cups Powdered Sugar

1/8 Cup Milk

2 Tablespoons Butter

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

1/8 Teaspoon Salt

Beat with electronic mixer, thoroughly. Scrape the bowl often and add a couple drops of milk if too stiff.

Vanilla Icing

After I made a plain white batch, I added some food coloring; and with the green icing I added some mint extract. YUM!

Yellow and Mint Icing

And here’s how most of the cookies look..

Sounds good, right? No.. not really. Tomorrow I’m working at “the Angus” and am not stoked about it. I just want the holidays to be over already, I’m so sick of them. The post couple of days I have felt like a complete Scrooge and I could give a shit less, oh well. Now to save up money for a new camera (since mine broke on Saturday) and hopefully a new track frame.

In other news, my grandmother came down from Arizona today and will be staying for a week or so. Also, not this Saturday but the next I will HOPEFULLY be getting certified to ride the velodrome… should be exciting. Now.. I think I’m going to get my grumpy self into bed. Grr…
