Eris bakes: What could be more chaotic than a teenager in the kitchen?











{November 25, 2012}   PIE!!!!!!!!!

So, I’m a little late posting but this past week I learned how to make pie. This was my first year cooking for Thanksgiving and it was a lot of fun and very easy. I won’t take all the credit, my Aunt Paula was telling me what to do with what and when. We made two pumpkin pies, and would’ve had a third but she forgot to read the directions, and a lemon pie and because we had an extra pie crust we made a chocolate pie. All the while, my mom was making a coconut pie and whenever ever we’d ask where something was the answer was always “On the table.”
Sadly, the pies were eaten before I could get pictures. ūüė• But they sure were tasty.



{November 11, 2012}   Well, that was a disaster

Last night, around midnight or so, I had a snack attack. Since I had recently found a recipe for One Minute Peanut Butter Cake I wanted to try it… I’ll skip the boring details, I learned my lesson: ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK that you’ve written the recipe down CORRECTLY, there is a big difference between half a teaspoon and one tablespoon… I think I might try it again… eventually.

 

One Minute Peanut Butter Cookie

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 heaping tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (give or take)

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, baking powder, peanut butter and flour.
  2. Pour batter into a greased ramekin. Microwave for 30 seconds.
  3. While the cake is microwaving, stir together milk and powdered sugar, adding more powdered sugar if necessary to thicken frosting.
  4. Remove cake from ramekin (or don’t), pour frosting over top.


{November 4, 2012}   Peanut Butter Cookies

I have a bit of a story with these cookies.

It was early this year, I was staying with my grandparents and somehow I got the food mission of the perfect peanut butter cookies.

I scoured the interwebs and found hundreds of recipes. I picked one and tried it…they tasted like oatmeal cookies with peanuts stuck in them. Not what my grandpa wanted.

I scoured again and found these amazing ones from Joythebaker.com!

I made them and he loved them, my grandparent’s neighbors loved them, I made them when I got back to my side of the country¬†and¬†the rest¬†of my¬†family loves them! I’ve written out this recipe so many times I’ve almost got it memorized!

So, I have to share them with the world!
