This was a fun project of mine, I put these together for gifts for friends, though I kind of want one for myself now as well. It was a lot of work, but it was worth it in the end. I found the cases in a used game shop for really cheap, though you can also buy them brand new and repaint them as well, it's just more expensive that way.
I know it has been a while, and I apologize, but I have started to really work on losing weight, so in light of that I have resolved to eat less cookies, now that does not mean I am cutting them out entirely, it just means that I am significantly cutting back on them, unless I REALLY have the energy to burn off enough calories to be able to eat them.
With my burns all healed I can once again eat cookies. Time time I decided to go gluten free and try some that are made of quinoa and not flour. Quinoa is still a type of grain, but it's not any kind of wheat. It can be used as a rice substitute as well as a flour substitute.
I regrettably burnt the inside of my mouth rendering me unable to eat cookies this week. I will pick up my usual Friday night shenanigans this week which will give me plenty of time to heal myself. Always make sure your tea is cool enough to drink before you take a huge gulp folks. To make up for the missed day, I present to you, an image of my adorable rabbit.
This weeks cookies are Belgian chocolate thins. The box says that they are Belgian chocolate covered butter cookies. All indications of it are that they are actually imported even if I did buy them from my regular grocery store. The every supportive husband shaped object is in high hopes that I won't like this one too much so that he can have the rest, which is what happened with last week's cookies. These are once again all natural cookies with a very small ingredient list, but it seems to be the case with the strange brands of cookies I am finding for this.
We all know what Friday means. It's time for Nibbitz's cookie of the week. This week I have some Thai cookies to try. It is called a Cocoroll, and is described as a coconut cookie roll, the one I got is banana flavored. It's ingredient list is small, and is all natural, I am noticing a trend from where I buy my cookies from. Despite the neat look and simple ingrediants, these cookies are not on my favorite list. They start off tasting really good, but once you hit the sesame seeds in it the flavor takes on a weird note. They don't taste bad, but they also don't really taste that good. They won't go to waste though because the husband creature likes them, he says they remind him of waffle cones more than anything. I imagine they would be a lot better if I liked sesame seed more then I do.
Tonight I have a package of Jammie Dodgers to try. It is a cookie that is popular in the UK, though if you have never actually seen them before they were mentioned in a Dr. Who episode. It was used by The Doctor as a bluff against the Dalek's, he was pretending it was a TARDIS self destruct button. Like the name suggests, they are a cookie that is filled with jam, sandwich cookie style. They area actually really cute looking as far as cookies go. Somewhere between a sugar cookie and something animal shaped cute. They are a bit crumbly but the jam keeps them from being a huge mess and they actually have them filled nicely so that you don't get a bite without jam in the cookie. The jam itself is raspberry flavored apple, which is pretty good. Not too sweet but sweet enough that it brings out the flavor of the shortbread cookie. These, much like the Chocolate Orange Wafers from last week are considered more on the natural side of things, though these aren't considered all natural. These c ...
I recently took up blacksmithing, and by recently I mean it was last Sunday. That being said this endeavor
What started off as a joke has become a thing by request of a few friends, so here it is. Drunken gNome Design's cookie review on Fridays. I will feature a new cookie every week and I will even take suggestions on what to try next.
