Something Saturdays (3/2/13)

My beloved Pocket Princesses also used the Oscars (and Merida from Brave's win)--I particularly love Ariel's drooling face :P

And ok, so many exciting things going on this week!

Ever since I began reading Kim's blog, Cravings of a Lunatic, I longed to be featured in her Burning Down the Kitchen series. It was one of my favorite things and I just hoped and prayed that would be my turn. And you happened. Kim wrote a super amazing post and did some seriously wonderful things to this cookie recipe, so head on over and check it out!

Woohoo! Baker Bettie is hosting her 2nd annual Cookie Wars (you may remember I participated last year, and the result was one of my favorite cookie recipes to date)! This year Kristina from Whipped, Laura from Ring Finger Tan Line, Charity of Sweets by Charity, and myself, are all helping Baker Bettie out with the first round of judging! The rules are that you need to create an original cookie recipe using 2 of the challenge ingredients (there are 25 possible challenge ingredients, that you'll find here) and then you need to submit the recipe with a photo of the finished cookie(s). You can learn more by visiting the FAQ's page and  the Official Rules page. Click here to go to the Official Online Recipe Submission Form. You guys know my obsession with cookies so I am very excited to be a part of this and see what amazing stuff you guys bake up!

And oh yeah, I finally got an iPhone and have hopped on the Instagram bandwagon! Follow me @kayleblogna and leave me your username if you'd like me to follow you! :)

Posts from this week
Recent links bookmarked (visit my Pinterest for more)
Roasted Garlic Crostini (My San Francisco Kitchen)
Bread, goat cheese, and roasted garlic sounds divine!
Cream Puffs (Cooking Classy)
I love that this recipe uses a combo of pastry cream & whipped cream for the filling!
Thick and Soft Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies (Averie Cooks)
These cookies sound sooo good and they're like...healthyish?
Homemade Ketchup (Dulce Delicious)
I've been dying to try homemade ketchup, and I think his is just the recipe!

Movies/TV Talk
Girls-Ewwwy to Hannah and the 19 year old. And Jessa is an unhappy little free spirit, huh?

How I Met Your Mother-SKITTLES! TMNT! All the insanity with the playbook!

Cougar Town-Ahh the old sitcom standard of closing the book on a possibility of a relationship and then the resistant party becomes all "wait...maybe I want it now...?" Laurie Laurie Laurie.

Law & Order: SVU-So, this episode was essentially (and supposed to be) Chris Brown and Rihanna, right down to the messed up tattoo of a her bruised face. People are worried the show went too far, but I think it was a perfect display of what could happen (and does happen in many domestic violence situations). It sickens me that those 2 are back together in real life, it is disgusting.

Pretty Little Liars-(SPOILERS) Ok, so Toby died in the books, so that's not entirely surprising, but of course his role in the show is so diff. than in the books that I don't know what to think. Maybe he's not even dead, I dunno. Also I'm super annoyed that the show is doing that thing shows do with Aria & Ezra-oh their romance is no longer forbidden, let's just throw in some wrenches and have Aria potentially break up with him even though they seem pretty happy. And now Spencer's lost it, full on.

Modern Family-I love how sassy Lily is! Best part was at the end with her and "Sal".

Supernatural-The Greek mythology geek inside me nerdgasmed over this episode. It was kind of sad but kind of awesome. I also loved when Dean was explaining the "men of letters" stuff and sounded all proud and was like, " big deal". :D

Criminal Minds-Holy cow, this is getting intense. The Replicator is like...on a whole other level.
