Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

I so often dislike things that are similar or practically identical to things that I love. A few examples, my friends:

I dislike lipstick but love lip stain. (This one has grown on me.)

I dislike filing my nails (it feels weird) but love painting my nails. (I’m wearing this color right now.)

I dislike red roses but love spray roses. (Evidence that I’m a girl.)

I dislike raisins. Like, loathe raisins (golden raisins are excluded). But I just LOVE currants.

They’re the same but different. Black currants are cuter, tastier, sweeter, and teeny-tiny compared to big ol’ raisins.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Out of all the cookie genres—fat and tall, crispy and thin, round and meaty—chewy is my total favorite.

Chewy is cool! Chewy is chic! Chewy is the new black!

Meyer Lemon Dutch Baby

Breakfast

When did fortune cookies stop being fortune cookies and start becoming trite phrases of knowledge? Like, don’t tell me to “live in the moment” or whatever; tell me how many kids I’m gonna have! tell me if I’m gonna get a raise! tell me if that thing I’m stressing about is gonna work out!

Our current fortune cookie reality upsets me, but only because I’m passionate about them. I wish all foods came with fortunes or love notes or Lotto numbers. This dutch baby inflates so high that it could fit a ton of them in its center. How would we get piece of paper in there? I dunno. I wish I knew the secret. I have a feeling it’d involve a lamenting machine and some note submersion. Waking up to this fluffy, tart, sweet thing and some life direction would be cool.

Also, more cutting boards should be shaped like animals. They’re cute and this one makes me want bacon, which sort of disturbs me.

Roasted Rainbow Carrot Salad (with Citrus Cumin Dressing)

Salads

The real name of this salad should read:

“Roasted Rainbow Heirloom Carrot Goat Cheese and Avocado Salad with a Citrus Cumin Dressing.”

But! it needed some tweaking. Let’s not do recipe titles that read like paragraphs. Not a good look. Also the word “rainbow” is way cuter than the word “heirloom.” (I think.) Who doesn’t want to eat a rainbow?! No one.

This dish is like a plate full of skittles…but in carrot form.
