Hi! Remember me? I’m supposed to post pictures on a daily basis but somehow February flew right by me. Work was hectic and crazy and disappointing and a little depressing. Private things were fun and exciting and blissful and definitely interesting. I took a few photos here and there, but I don’t like to think up memories from 10+ days ago. So I figured I’d use this entry as a largely uncommented pic dumb and start fresh in March – this time hopefully more in time. ;)

So this was February.

My office mate spent much of the afternoon talking about how much he was craving pie, so I made him one.
The recipe is Serious Eats’s chocolate chip cookie pie, but I subbed the chocolate chips for white chocolate and the vanilla for lemon.

Before I moved, I made a serious point in getting rid of a ton of books and turned the majority of my library digital. Yet, I still had a bunch of very heavy boxes because… cookbooks. I love them and I’m always excited to buy a new one.
Cassie’s newest cookbook has been patiently waiting for me at the post office and I finally got around to picking it up today. It’s going to be a few weeks before we have a functional kitchen, but I’m looking forward to Goji Berry, Boconut & Dark Chocolate Truffles, Salmon Cakes, and the like.

I baked lime coconut olive oil cake for the farewell party for one of our student assistants. I really liked the combination of the fresh summer-y flavors, though the cake ended up a tad dry because I only had a large baking dish at hand. I can highly recommend this recipe, though – just make sure to check the doneness of your cake regularly! :)

Cranberry White Chocolate cookies! This is hands down one of my favorite cookie recipes and I use this base for at least half the cookies I bake – Kim sure knows her baked goods. I’d lost my baking mojo for some months there, but I’m glad I’ve had opportunities to get my hands mixing bowls dirty in the past few weeks.

And I baked brownies for Valentine’s Day as I’ve done for the past 4 years. I’m not entirely sure how I managed to burn the top but… shrug. They were still really delicious (if a bit smokey).

I baked cheesecake for my office mate’s birthday because he’s cool. I’m doing my best to get rid of this German tradition according to which the birthday girl/boy is expected to bring their own cake.
