in case you missed these...

have you seen the sweet (lord in heaven!!) goodness that molly has been dishing over at orangette for the holidays? like these chocolate blocks (photo courtesy of said sweet molly)? you realize of course that the possibilities are endless here. i am having visions of espresso beans, candied ginger, pretzels... i could go on and on. i also made a batch of these lemon cookies with a few modifications, first i couldnt find a meyer lemon, and second i was too lazy to buy turbinado sugar, so i went with a regular lemon and dusted mine with powdered sugar. still fabulously delicious. think lemon flavored shortbreads almost. yum. then there are mav's pizzelles and cookies. how badly do i want one of those griddles? very. and then of course there is melissa's norwegian apple cake. good night. i love this recipe for so many reasons, but mostly because the way melissa writes it is exactly the way i cook. oh you know, a pinch of this, a bit of that until it tastes good, until it looks right. probably not very helpful when trying to impart a recipe, but so true to my form. i know that most of these posts have been about cookies and cakes and holiday goodies, but i promise you that i have been thinking about weekly fare. i hope to start a discussion about what you make throughout the week soon. after i get done making just one more cookie recipe...

thanks for linking to the chocolate blocks, they look delish! kind of like fudge, only more pure. speaking of fudge, do you suppose it's at all possible to ship fudge in the mail without it turning into a mushy mess?

Hopped over here from the Posie site.....

I, too, still love to cook, love to collect and yes...even write out recipes! I think we might be a dying breed...sadly, I know of nobody else in person who cooks anymore.

thx for the links and recipes...now I am off to find those chocolate blocks... they might even be as tasty as Nanaimo Bars.... maybe....
