In the anniversary world, two years is marked by the gift of cotton. How does that pertain to food blogging? A new apron perhaps? Or better yet, Cotton Candy. Yes, Cotton Candy, that's what I want. Too bad there are no outdoor festivals or fairs happening at the moment, in order to get my hot little hands on some. Fail.
Guess it's back to the kitchen for me...
Let's make cookies. That seems anniversary appropriate.
Last year I celebrated with a giant cookie, this year I'm scaling it back and making an individual cookie in a mug, in a microwave, in 40 seconds. A perfectly sized treat to celebrate my 2 year mark. Happy Blogiversay to me!
The only thing that would make this cookie better, is a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Too bad our freezer is currently out of stock at the moment. Looks like it's just the cookie today. But next time.....oh next time...
