I did the unthinkable.

I dove into my garbage just now. To rescue the cookies I threw out.


I made a recipe from the new Cookies book by Martha Stewart. LOVE the book. It's fantastic. But for some reason my Brown Butter Toffee Blondies didn't turn out. Everything was done to a 't'. I'm thinking it just wasn't baked long enough.

Anyways..they turned out way underdone. and the thought of having gooey underdone squares containing at least 2 cups of brown sugar and 1.5 cups of butter which haven't chemically reacted properly just made me ill. So I bagged up the entire 9x13 pan of it, minus a few bites from Trent and I, and chucked it in a big plastic bag and threw it in the garbage.

This evening. I had a craving. For one. last. bite.

I can't believe I fucking did that. I'm laughing histarically at myself right now.

Oh it was so righteously worth it.

They're back in the garbage again. without a bag, mixed in among the coffee grounds and banana peel so I won't dare touch it again.

OMG I cannot believe I admitted to this!


  1. OMG thats disgusting....what would Martha say? Do you think she does things like that when no one is looking? NO! Because she doesn't under cook things! Because SHE is Martha!

    This is why you should squirt dish soap over temptations before you put them in the garbage ;)

  2. so. very. ashamed.

    oh my gosh, what a good waste of soap! I should just squirt some of that in my mouth instead! lol

  3. I find I have to cook things 10 minutes longer than recipes state - I don't know if its the altitude we are at here in Edmonton or if it's my useless oven but everything gets ten minutes longer! HTH

    PS the soap thing isn't something I do but is something we used to suggest to the bulimics we treated when I worked in an eating disorder unit lol......just in case this becomes a regular habit for you hahahahahha! ;)
