Peanut Butter & Chocolate Rolo Cookies

Is that a long enough name for a cookie?

Has it been a long enough time since I wrote a blog post?  Or should I stay away for another, oh, I dunno FOUR MONTHS.

I would like to take this opportunity to make a post-dated announcement: Fleur-de-Licious went on a brief hiatus, due to…intern year.  It’s the real deal.  These 80+ hour work weeks are no joke.  But if my New Years Resolution is going to involve cookies and stuff (like, making and eating more obvi), then I see this as a perfect time to make another announcement: FLEUR-DE-LICIOUS IS BACK Y’ALL.

Bourbon Caramel Cookies

Well… I’ve figured out where all the stuff I was complaining about last post comes from.

I’ve been moving into my new apartment (in Dallas! Where Hannah lives!). And moving into a new place requires some shopping for essentials that you didn’t feel like end up moving. Like brooms and sponges and dish soap. You know, responsible, adult things.

Payday Cake

Recently I learned 2 important things about myself.

1) I will put on pink lipstick before any task I think may be stressful or that may make me feel like I’m not in control. Like while I’m waiting for my ride to the airport, which happened to be quite late, and it happened to end up not mattering at all. (Is mattering even a word? I don’t think this thing has very good spell check.) Or like when I hear that our flight to Denver is going to be delayed due to blizzard conditions.

Nothing I can do about it, so I might as well put on some lipstick. (more…)

Caramel Apple Bundt Cake

I did something a little strange and a little watch-out-for-my-own-sanity.

I’m kind of proud.  You see, I knew I would be getting back the grade from the exam we took on Friday.  Quick recap: it was a hard, hard, hard exam about all the stuff that can go wrong with your heart.  The kind that makes you realize why cardiologists make lots of money.  (more…)
