Well, once again I am not exactly baking along with the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie clan. I didn't have all the ingredients for the "Thumbprints for us Big Guys" chosen by one of the few male members of our group, Mike of Ugly Food for an Ugly Dude who is quite funny (check his site for the recipe). I do enjoy thumbprint cookies but between illness, exhaustion, and lack of ingredients, I skipped these. I definitely plan to be back on track for next week though!
I did however make a recipe that I had missed during the last bit of December when I was all baked-out. The Low & Lush Chocolate Cheesecake, chosen by "the Tea Lady" over at Tea & Scones (we have some things in common...). I had planned to make this for a co-workers birthday at the same time that it was chosen. Between exhaustion and so many other treats she said not to worry about making it for her. Well, that same coworker's husband recently had surgery and I was asking what they would like me to make for a dinner for them. She asked for dessert, so I decided to make what I had originally planned for her birthday! (she loved it by the way).
