A whiplash and some soothing gel

a whiplash and some soothing gel

the coconut butter thins... were cruel this week. Spread too much and browned to quickly...

Yet another disheartening week... *feels the fresh burn of a whiplash mark on an old scar*

Visit Jayne's The Barefoot Kitchen Witch for the recipe.

Soon the sun had set over the graying horizon. Evening set in, and a cloud of dark shadow spread over the lateral contours of the earth's surface. Lamps and lights of all shapes, sizes and functions were switched off in a bid to vote for Earth. From the magnificant Sydney Opera house, to the Parisian Effiel Tower, and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. The world become shrouded in a mist of perpetual nightfall for a magical hour.

And as the bright lights went off over my head, I retired into the comforting lair of my dark surroundings. Rubbing at the aches and pains in the absence of the public eye.

Yet, thru the night, my light was always beside me... I just had to open my eyes to see him. In him, I feel no aches.. just an undying surge of bliss.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

Sihan they look great! I'm making mine later today (talk about last minute!). So glad you took part in earth hour, i did too :)

Farah: It's never too late yesh? Just a word of advice.. freeze this again just before baking after you've shaped them. Spore is just too hot!

Earth hour was fun wasn't it. Too bad the neighbours weren't that enthusiastic about the whole affair.

These look great...I think they browned very quickly.

I did Earth Hour...except I thought I would turn everything off and take a nap...well, my Earth Hour became 8 hours of sleep! (But I didn't use electricity and started a new habit of turning off the power strip on my laptop!)

Earth hour? Interesting. And I bet your cookies tasted good, right? They were delicious I thought. :)

They look good! Mine spread too. You are right though, they do taste better than they sounded. I love these.

That is too bad they didn't turn out like you hoped. earth hour looks relaxing; beautiful pictures.

chocolatechic said...

Mine spread and over cooked too.

Leslie said...

I bet they were still great! Something to munch while the lights were out (I think I was the only one on my block who turned out the lights, and it made me so sleepy I went to bed at 9!)

TeaLady said...

I just took mine out of the oven (haven't posted yet) and they look tasty. Yours look nice and brown and crispy and yummy!

Steph said...

I love the colour of your cookies! The texture looks awesome too.

I think the cookies look different but good - and good for you for doing earth hour.

Jacque said...

AAah, your pictures look so peaceful. Definitely comforting after the harsh reality of over-browned cookies :)

Cakelaw said...

Your cookies look tasty Sihan - no matter that they are brown (I actually like the crispier texture). Good on you for participating on Earth Hour.

You are not alone! My cookies were a bit disappointing too. I guess we live and learn....
