OUR APARTMENT IN HARLEM
Happy 2021!!! I scheduled this update a couple of days ago. Knowing me, I’m probably hungover from NYE’s “festivities”.
To get into the spirit of COVID Christmas 2020, I baked some cookies last!
Bacon, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Cookies
The plan was to make two batches of cookies – the bacon chocolate chip cookies (aka aconbay ocolatechay ipchay cookies) and the peanut butter cookies. Get it? Pig latin since the cookies have bacon. However, I was lazy and did not feel prepping two batches of cookies so I just threw everything together into one bowl. While delicious, this time I had time to refrigerate the cookie dough before baking, I think these cookies had to too much stuff in them. Although not pictured, I did prepare a whiskey glaze for the cookies. Remember that I have to add booze to all of my desserts.
Blood Orange Rosemary Vodka Fizz
Not really a picture of food, but oh well. Well. . . blood oranges are in the cocktail so I guess it counts as food. 😉
-2 oz freshly squeezed blood oranges
-1 oz rosemary simple syrup (just add rosemary to homemade simple syrup)
-1 oz Aperol
-1 oz vodka or gin
Add ice, shake, pour into a glass, then add champagne/sparkling wine.
To make life easier, just upscale everything, add to a pitcher, and add the champagne/sparkling wine when you are ready to serve.
