Happy Halloween!

Hey guys! 

I know I don't update this much anymore, but Happy Halloween from me and my friends (and girlfriend)!

We all went to The Donut Pub and celebrated.  I had a Black and...ORANGE?!? Cookie! It was incredibly good.

See ya soon, buddies!  Or should I say...BOOdies?!?!

Bakery Boys of New York

Hey guys! And that one girl.

Today's mini(ature) cookies come from The Bakery Boys of New York, which to me sounds like some sort of gang from the 1930's. DON'T MESS WITH THE BAKERY BOYS.

I stumbled upon these quite randomly at a grocery store, and waited about a week before remembering I bought them.

To my surprise they were still incredibly soft and fresh (and shiny!) when I opened up the plastic.

It may have been my imagination, but I could swear they were speaking to me. Almost...making a face. "Eat all of us, Jordan. Not just a few. ALL OF US."

Luckily, my friend Dave was there to help me eat these. Though he only had one. Somehow.

I say "somehow" because these cookies were INCREDIBLY good. I was expecting standard stuff but I made an audible "woh" when I tasted these. Or maybe it was a "wow." It could have been a "kaZOOM" but you didn't hear that from me.

Dave was over because we were watching a few episodes of season 1 of The Wire. The Wire is a complex show about how we're all fucked, where people have conversations that we half understand. I really like it so far! The Wire will be making a background appearance in today's blog, if you don't mind. Have you noticed I often eat cookies while watching T.V.? It's the American Dream.

Dave does a funny impression of him. HELLO. HOW ARE YOU.

Oh, also my bird Bob was there, but she's not allowed to have cookies. I let her taste some of the cake part but she didn't like it.


I took a cookie out...WOW. It even smelled great! I bit the vanilla side.

Really soft, subtle vanilla but really delicious. WANT MORE.

I bit the chocolate side.

The frosting could best be described as Fudgey. In fact, what it reminded me most of was a Hostess cupcake. And I'm not complaining about that.

When I took the remaining cookies home later, my roommate Nate made the observation that they were actually ALL vanilla topped, with half chocolate icing placed ON TOP OF THE VANILLA ICING. This probably slipped by me because I ate them so fast and was distracted by trying to keep up with The Wire. But you could sort of see this in the picture below. Notice how the vanilla icing curves all the way around the cookie, before the chocolate tear drop tries to obscure it.

Then I drank milk. I have no joke for this. I just drank milk and so check it out.

Then I cleaned up Bob's poops which were all over my legs.

See ya, friends!


P.S. Yes there is a continuity error with my full glass of milk next to the poop tissues, even though I claim to drink milk before this part. Just go with it.

Red Velvet Cookie - IBlogWhatIBake.com

Hey there cookie bros and cookie hos!

My good buddy Adam brought me back a RED VELVET BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE, made by his friend Jill Churco. Jill has her own food blog, with recipes and all sorts of good stuff, over at IBlogWhatIBake.com. GO THERE!

Me and my roommates sat down to play the new Back To The Future adventure game, which is kind of amazing.

Then I prepared myself to eat a black and white cookie with blood red cake.

Last week I'm pretty sure I burst a capillary in my eyeball. I felt a strange pressure and then there was a red spot in my eyeball.

Now I'm tempted to talk about my burst capillary for the entire blog, but I suppose I should get to the cookie. BURST CAPILLARY. OK...Got that out of my system.

The cookie was small, so it was a struggle to eat it slow enough to review it intensely, so I missed taking a photo of me trying the vanilla side first. Try to deal with this.

The vanilla side. Probably one of the more subtle vanillas that I've tasted. It didn't overload my tongue with sugary vanilla flavor, but what was there had a strange warmth and natural taste to it. I would have liked to taste it even more.

Then I ate a chocolate side. I TOOK A BIG OL' BITE, HEH HEH HEH HEH.

There is also a nice looking non-flash photo, but the flash makes the red cake look brighter, velvetier, and, let's face it, scarier.

The chocolate side was delicious, and the best way I could describe it was that it tasted like a homemade brownie. It even had that very slight subtle burnt taste, like you could actually taste the oven it was made in. It was great!

I ate this very fast.


See, my eye is all better now! No more BURST CAPILLARY.

Thanks to Jill and Adam for the cookies!


P.S. I google imaged "burst capillary," so I could throw in a picture, but they were all too disturbing. So I'm sparing you. You're welcome.
