Recipe Roundup

Citrus-scented Rice with Fresh Basil
Used lime juice instead of orange, added a smidge of canned ham, smelled the resulting combination and thought it was weird and I probably wouldn't like it. I ate it for lunch two days in a row and LOVED it.

Thai Chicken with Basil
Mmmm. Added some masala and red pepper paste.

Lime Sugar Cookies
A little solid but really quite good. I love the lime. However: why is it that cookie dough always tastes better unbaked? Seriously you should make these cookies and just eat the dough. It is divine.

Half the dough I added a bit more flour and some food coloring to and made these (I've been waiting ALL YEAR for this.)

Cowboy Cookies

These are really good. The end.

Puffed-up Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Not worth making. The end.

And in conclusion: My kittens are adorable.

Aww. I do find that cooler weather makes kitties more chummy.

These little ones - well, not so very little anymore - are sisters, which I think sort of makes it all the cuter. :)

Ha! Your cats! That's so funny.

Man, what's up with recipes with no photos?? (I mean on the sites you linked, not your own LJ.) That shouldn't be allowed in this day and age!

I know! How in the world are you supposed to know if you want to make it without a photo?

I usually just grab the first link I can find, because I figure few people are actually going to investigate the recipes so it doesn't really matter. If I was more dedicated I'd take my own pictures to post. :)

Are you kidding me?! If it sounds good, if you recommend it, I totally go look at the link! :-)

Aww! Well, that's sweet to know. You guys put a lot of trust in my taste. o_O ;)
Oct. 27th, 2010 09:26 pm (UTC)
LOL I do at least! I've made several things you've suggested. :-)

Btw, I forgot to mention that your cats are adorable!

ditto! I may not follow up on the recipe, but I definitely go to the link, read through it, and try to figure out how it will fit in our food plans. And it's fun to read about someone else making adjustments to a recipe. :)

The kittens are soooooooo precious. And getting so big.

And I am coming over for cowboy cookies now kthxbai. Or I could make my own. But it would be more fun to eat them with a friend instead of having someone who shall remain nameless reminding me that sugar will make me be sick longer.

I will feed you sugar AND CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP so really you will get better faster anyway?
Oct. 27th, 2010 10:35 pm (UTC)
I think this sounds like a very good deal.
Oct. 27th, 2010 09:14 pm (UTC)
The kitties are SO adorable! :)

I've heard of cowboy cookies before but never made 'em. Maybe I should!
Oct. 28th, 2010 10:58 am (UTC)
Yes, make the cowboy cookies. My cowboy doesn't like them, but I sure do!

Love your kitties, Marie!

Kills me with cuteness.

And they are usually like this when I go out to leave for work. Which makes me want to be late for work, so I can stay and pet on them.

It's so cute I went all malleable and stuff.
Oct. 28th, 2010 10:55 am (UTC)
AWWW!!! ♥ I've only witnessed my cats "hugging" like that once.
Oct. 28th, 2010 02:41 pm (UTC)
Mmm, that rice sounds good. And all the cookies!

I'm trying to imagine Evil Kitty ever hugging another cat...or anyone, really. Nope, can't see it. Can I have one of your sweet kittens, please?

Also, I find it interesting that the recipe is called "Puffed Up Chocolate Chip Cookies" but in the picture they're completely flat. Very strange.
Nov. 2nd, 2010 10:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it was really odd!

Hahaha, nope Evil Kitty aka CAT LUMP wouldn't be likely to cuddle with much of anything. :D
