notable events for today, in chronological order, not impact:
1. blizzard.
2. new cookie
3. genesis of blog.

1. I never dreamed that i would be in a blizzard. it's not entertaining, tasty, or warm. therefore, i am considering no longer participating in the blizzard experience. Occasionally, it can be kinda pretty. i took pictures to try to have proof, but who knows what that'll look like. beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Also, things close down because of blizzards. this is usually viewed as good. but this time around, it is not so good. even church was not open. that's ridiculous.

2. chocolate cookie w/ soft chocolate in the middle. i ferget the official name of the recipe, but it is by the naked chef, Mr. Jamie Oliver. It's an excellent cookbook. i enjoyed the bread recipe very much. so did other people who had the opportunity to sample it. this cookie's appeal was the soft chocolate center. I've been eyeing cookie recipes of this genre for some time now. saw one by martha stewart, but didn't bother copying it down. this recipe would've been amazing except that i didn't have any cocoa powder. therefore, after a brief consultation w/ another baker, i substituted vanilla extract. hmm, this may have accounted for the altered flavor. didn't taste quite the way it looked. it looks extraordinarily delicious. but it left a salty aftertaste. also a possibility due to the tweak of making my own self-rising flour. since i am certain of future success w/ this cookie, i will try it again. further reviews to come...after, i purchase cocoa powder, but not by Nestle.

3. due to the snowstorm, and having exhausted nearly all other possible forms of distractions, i officially turn to the internet and this questionnable source of entertainment. I do not expect to blog regularly, though perhaps frequently when time, access, and creativity come together, or not. at any rate, for posterity's sake, this is the official preface. it is not my intent to expound wisdom, reveal deep-seated secrets, or impart any gravity to this blog, therefore, you may have either wasted your time or spent it well by lingering here. thus begins the blog.
