I Make Things

I’m not good with words. I always come up with the right thing to say 10 minutes after the opportunity presents itself.

I don’t bake that well. Yes, I have chocolate chip cookies and chocolate crinkle cookies that I can deliver consistently. But anything more complicated than that will take me LOTS of practice to be successful. The yeast didn’t activate in the cinnamon rolls I made for my honey on Valentine’s Day {but he ate it anyway}.

But, I can make things.

I stole this adorable idea from transcraftinental {via Muddycakes Muse} and gave it to my husband on Valentine’s. We’ll all be skinnier this way if I just keep making things and forget about the baking.

    p.s. what is this chocolate crinkle cookie you speak of??? do share! chocolate is right up my husband’s alley.

    and i am super curious… is your chocolate chip cookie recipe a buttery crispy melt in your mouth piece of goodness, or is it the sort that are thick like a cake cookie that breaks really easily like i remember my grandma used to make that my cousin loves the most but i can’t stand. if it is the grandma sort, that’s okay, just not for me. but if it’s the first sort that i dream about even though i am not a huge chocolate fan, i must know how you make them!!! i have been on a hunt for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. surely a gal who comes from a big family must have a winning recipe, right???

    I identify with your opening here, but I have been reading your blog for a bit and I agree with you- you can make things. And you do them beautifully!

    @Susan – oh, I have the choc. chip cookies recipe… shortening AND butter which, you’ll note, will not give you any “grandma cookies”!! (this recipe is from a friend of mine)

    1c shortening
    1/3 c butter
    2 eggs
    1tea. salt
    1tea. baking soda
    1tea. vanilla
    1c sugar
    1c brown sugar

    mix together, then add 3 – 31/2c flour a bit at a time. Add chocolate chips. 375 for 8-10 mins. Mmmm..


    I tried to find the chocolate crinkle recipe online, but didn’t find it. This is a recipe from my mom- and the cookies look like this, but the ingredients are a bit different: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes.aspx/chocolate-crinkles/941e22b3-9a48-4fb1-bdb0-27479e76d484

    1c shortening
    1 2/3c granulated sugar
    2 tea. vanille
    2 eggs
    1/4c cocoa
    1/2 tea. salt
    2 tea. baking powder
    2c flour
    powdered sugar

    Mix ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 15 mins to an hour. Shape into balls, roll in powdered sugar. Bake 350 for 7-8 minutes for a soft cookie, longer for a crunchy cookie.

    thanks, brooke! i will try them out as soon as i can get myself a bag of chocolate chips. i’ll let you know how it goes ;O)

    @Susan – does that mean you don’t have the costco sized chocolate chips in your cupboard? Susan, Susan, Susan…

  11. Susan said: February 22, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    ha ha ha ha ha :)

    you have a good sense of humor, my dear.

    YES and NO.

    truth be told, i don’t have a costco membership anymore (i know, i know, but i got rid of it when we moved to d.c. because the nearest one was about an hour away – and i simply haven’t reinstated my membership over the year and almost a half we’ve been back in california) so no costco sized bags here at present.

    what it really means is that this weekend was a BIG baking weekend for me. i was in charge of an after church social on Sunday and i made dozens of chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cupcakes, and so on.

    hugs to you, susan

    p.s. even though i’m not strictly vegan (i don’t even qualify as moderately vegan, really, though we do have one or two vegan or vegetarian meals each week), everything i made was vegan to prove to a bunch of doubters that a big and entirely vegan dessert/breakfast buffet could actually be good. it was a huge success. not a crumb was left – thanks to my vegan yum yum and vegan with a vengeance cookbooks – and while i am feeling super victorious this morning, i am also officially exhausted and don’t plan on baking/cooking for another week at least! okay. for at least a day. but only because we can’t afford to eat out all week until i feel like cooking again :(

    CUTE! I’m going to try this. However, I may need to use your Xyron and check out this awesome machine you and Shannon speak of.

    Love the idea – I am making it for my wife! Very cool
