Finally, here is the cookie I have been working on for about a month now and I really like it. Aside from oatmeal (which I think helps keep the crispy cereals stay crispy) I also have cornflakes and rice krispies in it. I LOVE both of them in here but if you only want to go with one of those, go with the rice krispies.
So yep, these were the cookies that were for someone so I guess you are wondering who, right? They are for my oldes friend, my best man, my oldest daughter’s godfather, my friend Guillermo. Unfortunately for him, he won’t get any because he lives too far away and with the chocolate drizzled on top, it makes them precarious to send. So he will need to come visit us to get some. (hint, hint)
He was in the Peace Corps some years ago and I either gave him some Nutty Bars once or twice before he left or I sent him some once he was gone (who remembers? jeez we are getting old). I really never knew he was a big fan of the whole chocolate/peanut butter combo till after we graduated high school and we had met when we were freshman. About a month or so after school had started, he walked right into our (my friend Kim and I) third period religion class. We all still keep in touch. Some years more than others but still…
I know I have given him some Reeses over the years too, but the Nutty Bars have stuck with me because I actually never had them until he introduced me to them. They are from Little Debbie and we had always been more of a Hostess family.
I really just kinda wanted to see if I could pull it off or not and even though it took me multiple tries, I am really pleased with the results. Plus, I know Guillermo will come and get them at some point. We live pretty close to his family, so whenever he is in town he makes sure to come visit his goddaughter. He is always here around Christmas, at the very least, and I am usually making Christmas goodies or something for my son’s birthday when he stops by and we have a good catch up over buttercream and wine. Can you beat that? I doubt it.
My GeekyLink for this week is Fashion It So. It goes through all the episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generations and goes through the fashions of each episode. It is certainly hilarious but also a bit enlightening. Also, I just finished Season 5 of The Guild and I don’t know how Felicia Day could have topped the first four seasons but she did. TONS of nerd cameos and yet you still stay tethered to the story of the main six guild members. Please watch this show! Only 6 or so hours of your life will put you up to date with this wonderful series. Streaming on Netflix or on the YouTube Channel geekandsundry (new episode every Tuesday).
