Why anyone would want to put an 11”x17” picture of me on their wall, I have no idea, but it was apparently what people’d requested for the Cookieclysm giveaway, in addition to the cookies, of course.
I’ll be autographing(again, I will never understand, since I feel like I’m just some random dude with a costume) and shipping three of them out to the Cookieclysm winners, along with their cookies, either this afternoon or Monday.
I did get ten of them printed just because they weren’t that expensive, so I’ll be hanging onto them for future…whatevers.
COOKIECLYSM HAS ENDED
Okay, so it’s been over for close to a day now, but I’ve been so ridiculously busy that I haven’t had much of a chance to get this stuff shot and uploaded to the internet. This is the culmination of eighteen hours of baking over the course of about two-and-a-half days.
Throughout Cookieclysm, I had to stack the plates of cookies to save on counter space. I started calling this growing abomination “COOKIE BABEL” and hoped that I would not be cast out of the kitchen for my cookie hubris.
These will be getting sorted and packed over the course of the weekend, along with the promised prints to those who’ve won my little Tumblr contest, and to select personal friends of mine as well. Depending on the cost of the print job, I may have extras printed for future giveaways, but that is not a guarantee.
As much as I love being in the kitchen and baking up goodies, I am so glad that these are finished.
I was just contacted by all three winners for the contest(thank you, ladies), so it’s full speed ahead, so to speak. Cookieclysm begins(and hopefully concludes) today, and then it’s off to the post office to ship the spoils of the event to happy friends around the globe.
Thanks again to everyone for making this little giveaway pretty neat.
I assure you it won’t be the last.
Today I made a bunch of modifications to a chocolate chip cappuccino bread and wound up crafting a bread that tastes like coffee and brownies. It has 4 Tbsp of butter and no oil, but is still ridiculously delicious and moist.
I would travel back in time to Thanksgiving just so I could be thankful for future coffee brownie bread.
Here’s the original recipe: http://www.beanilla.com/blog/chocolate-cappuccino-bread
My modifications to the above recipe are as follows:
No applesauce, 1/4 C brown sugar, use 1/2 stick(4 Tbsp) of butter, use 1/4 C(2 fl. oz.) of real espresso instead of the powder and water, use bread flour instead of the all-purpose flour, use vanilla sugar for half of the required sugar, sift the dry ingredients instead of whisking them, and, most importantly, use the highest quality ingredients you can get your grubby mittts on! It makes a world of difference!
COOKIECLYSM: Son of Cookiepocalypse - The second coming of…?
Here’re the drawing for the contest. Congrats to the winners! I’ll be contacting you soon for shipping information and the like.
Thanks for everyone who entered, and I’m sure this won’t be the last giveaway I do.
Dale and Kevin get together with Nick and Jess at their new apartment.
More of the talk-faces that you can’t see. Have a listen.
Or don’t. We’re all crazy.
I’m recording the November episode of The Long Con Podcast with Dale, Jess, and Nick today, which means you should hit us up with some cosplay, convention, gaming, or otherwise geeky questions, ‘cause we’d love to talk about ‘em(Jessica, I still have your gaming question from last time, so I promise we’ll get to it)!
Also, today is the last day for my Cookieclysm giveaway, so if you’ve been following me for more than a week and you like the chance of winning free, scratch-made cookies, you might be interested in this thing. I’ll be ending it in about 21 hours from the time of this post! Also, I haven’t been responding to any of the messages, so don’t worry if you don’t get a reply from me. I’ve got about 40 entries thus far.
So get on that stuff, hey?
