Sounds good, Kylie. I like to use the Marcus Neimann recipe and use white chocolate and macadamia nuts (chopped, but not finely chopped). I have a friend who can't eat regular chocolate but can eat white, so I used to make these a lot to share with her. When not making them to share with her, I would add some dark chocolate chunks.

I will search for Marcus's recipe too, thanks

I have an apple tart in the oven

FYI: if you put peeled apples in a rice cooker set to steam they will explode and form apple sauce and send it flying to every machine crevice imaginable ...

Haha

I made a fresh fruit salad yesterday morning, will eat its leftovers this morn with hot porridge...my hubby likes fruit salad raw, but I like mine cooked hot, so will microwave my portion before adding it to the cereal.

It contains: a large golden delicious apple, 2 small oranges, 1 dark purple plum, red grapes, halved, some fresh raspberries I couldn't resist in the produce aisle, but which are sour, a sprinkling of frozen blueberries. I add several dollops of real maple syrup (store-bought, extracted from maple trees) to sweeten. Hope to provide you with a pic when the porridge is about to be served. It's early now and I'm heading into the hot infrared sauna for a short spell to ease the arthritic pains. (20 mins per day seems to work!)

Whole-wheat pita bread. That's the baking part. I'm also making hummus to go with the pita and crudities. It is date night so the DH is doing the main course and I'm doing the appys. I might make another batch of the s'more cupcakes as well.

In the process of making some challah bread to use for French toast tomorrow morning. May make a couple of baguettes, too. Depends on how the time works out.

This is my GO TO recipe for cc cookies. I add walnuts.

I keep the dough chilled so I get thicker cookies.

Oh, Andy, I LOVE Nieman Marcus cookies. Just too, too yummy.

On another note...the challah is in the oven. Or I should say Mt. Challah. Omigosh! This loaf rose beyond "rising." It's gorgeous.

While it's baking I've got two baguettes ready to form and get ready for the second rise. The timing should work out nicely so that there isn't too much lag time between bakings of each type of bread. The house sure smells good!!!
