i am such a pushover.
i’ve been putting off making these for the longest time, but the boy begged and begged me to make them and who am i to deny the guy what he wants? in the kitchen, that is.
please don’t think about that too much.
anyway, these are pretty much deadly. if you make them around new year’s, they’re what i would call “resolution killers.” the first step in the recipe is to mix crushed chocolate chip cookies with butter, if that’s any indication, and it doesn’t really get any more acceptable from there (see filling instructions: mix peanut butter with sugar). but the result… ohh, it’s divine. but seriously – i tasted the crust as i was patting it into the pan and i’m pretty sure i heard my new free people skinny jeans running for their life.
they’re best kept in the freezer because this way, they can’t stare you down. i hate it when baked things do that.
and since i know you’re wondering, i’ll just come clean. yes, they have approximately 3,257 calories each (give or take), though i’ve heard that if you share one, the damage is practically zero. so go ahead, make them!
but hey, don’t let me talk you into it.

perhaps a better title for this post would be “where i obsessively take pictures of food and try not to get sauce on my lens.”
“try” being the operative word here. so far, so good.
here are a couple of my first snaps. i’m still trying to learn all of the settings but it’s mostly been trial and error so far. hope you like!
salt cod fritter at bar bocce in sausalito
marble potato, smoked bacon and fontina pizza, also at bar bocce
asparagus gruyere tart, burnt end not pictured. recipe here.
fresh black mission figs, destined for a salad with prosciutto and chopped pistachios. most of them made it 🙂
