I hate to jinx myself, but the past two weeks have been calm. Like hella calm. Like I have ample time to myself in the evenings and on the weekends and I don’t know what to do. I hope things stay like this, and I’ve been taking advantage of the free time to make some things in the kitchen.
Last Sunday, before the Super Bowl, I made (never home) maker’s pumpkin garlic knots. This is before soaking them in tons of garlic and nooch.
And I am glad I had enough foresight to put a few away and not take them to the party, so I could eat some all to myself.
Since I already had a can of pumpkin open, and needed to use it up, I scoured the internet for some recipes. I didn’t really know what I wanted, but when I came across these pumpkin chocolate chip cookie bars from Oh, Ladycakes, I knew I had to make them.
These were a big hit and were all gone before the game ended.
Over the weekend my friend Laura mentioned a goldfish cracker recipe on Chef Chloe’s web site. The recipe is incredibly easy and fast, and I made this after work earlier this week.
