Bananas were 39 cents a pound the other day...consequently I will be making banana cream pudding today before they all get brown. Once they are brown I'll put them in the freezer for banana bread. I'm making pudding cups because I'm too lazy to make pie dough today.

Hi Alix! I've been in a cooking rut but otherwise I'm great! I still check in here once in a while. Here is a link to the Korova Chocolate Cookie. You'll LOVE it! It's a perfect recipe adapted from the pastry master Pierre Herme for easy-to-make double chocolate cookies with just the right amount of crunchy, chewy, and melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I have trouble keeping myself from gobbling up the whole batch!

Tell me how you like it!

Charlie,
Several years ago I cooked at a youth camp for a week. I was filling in last minute for someone else so the menus were set and the food ordered (very badly I might add). There were cookies almost every day for snack time and I was quite prepared to make from scratch. But they had purchased several boxes of frozen cookie dough - you take them out of the box, put them on trays and bake.

The kids were always out on activities when I would do this but they would come into the dining hall to the wonderful smell of fresh baked cookies and would eat them warm.

They would say did you really make these? and I would reply - "yep, baked them up fresh just for you!"

! wasn't lying and either are you! We baked!

In all honesty, I love the turnovers, they are really - really yummy.

Oh, I do too. They are so good there is no point in making them from scratch.

Who has time to make them from scratch. Even when I do, I still use store bought dough.

I quite agree, why spend the time when you have found something store bought that is just as good as you could make from scratch. It leaves me time for making from scratch other foods and baked goods.
