We’ve been making this recipe in my family for ages.  It’s from the I Hate to Cook Cookbook, a lovely little tiny paperback from 1960 by a snarky housewife.  This recipe asks for baking chocolate to be melted with vegetable oil, but before that the recipe says “Find your saucepan.”

I think in the book they are actually called fudge cookies.  But the way they are made (rolling balls of dough in powdered sugar and then baking at a high temperature) makes the surface very crackly.  As a clumsy little kid, I thought they looked just like a cracking scab.  Gross name for a delicious food.


Finally, I have access to a card reader and can get things off my DSLR!

I’ve been working on the love embroidery quite a bit.  The exception being the seemingly infinitely long finals period I had to suffer through.  Blergh.

The background is supposed to be only two colors, but I’m using some crappy embroidery thread I had from the summer from friendship bracelet season, and I ran out of blue.  I was pretty sure I couldn’t find a perfect match, so I switched over to three colors.  Purple is the only stuff I have left to do, so I’m feeling pretty good!  I think  I will also add a little black border going around the outside to keep things in and visually tidy.  Thoughts?

And just because, here is a picture of an angel food cake that has a giant handprint from getting it out of the pan.  Oops.
