In response to the winter weather that is setting in, my friend Maxine and I decided to do one of mes passe-temps préférés, one of my favorite things. Baking, bien sûr! Cookies! Now, I have always enjoyed eating healthy things and have recently, I will admit, become a part of the organic fresh food revolution thing that has gripped er, the world I guess. I purchased this organic cocoa powder from a shop on my street awhile ago and had never used it. Alors, Maxine and I resolved that we must find some way to use it in the cookies! Also, we had no money buy real chocolate.
Here is le cocoa powder. Biologique, thank you very much:
And alas! We made a beautiful discovery! Maxine found le chocolat! A bit old perhaps, but delicious all the same! Straight into the batter it went! We also took care to blast a bit of Brian McKnight Christmas music in the process. Brian, je t'aime.
avant the baking...
and well. I do not have après, after, the baking. Because well. Maxine and I, being the ladies that we are, have sweet tooths/teeth. (sweet teeth?) and so yes. No cookies were there to see or spare. But Maxine's friends did create for her these terrific little clothespins to clip her food nice and tight. So you can adore those like I did if you'd like:
Cookies were a delicious success! Studying not so much! But hey now, it is the Christmas season! Eat, bake and be merry! Embrace the darn snow. It is pretty biddie cute. The world becomes so much brighter when you love on the little things I think! Bonne semaine!
