The OVEN!!!!

So this is it, THE post you have all been waiting for.... does the oven work or is it from the land of infinite sadness.

Well go on, actually look at that picture. OF COURSE IT *#&%&% well WORKS !!!!! YAYAYYAYAYAYAY
Clare is soooooo happy! As you can see, these are Ben's Birthday Biccies. Why does Ben deserve biccies... because he is sweet, we didn't get to see him on his real birthday and I needed an unknowing yet totally willing and deserving guinea pig, gee life's tough sometimes LOL. Since we had a suprise visit, I turned to the Same Baking by Flavours cookie recipe that I used to test that OTHER oven.. the one I didn't get for long.. well :P:P to you! Cause I have a new oven, that whilst not new cooks just as good as you. NERR and is black and much sexier than you too :P

*Can anyone tell just how late it actually is here? :P*

So back on to the biccies, I think they actually worked better this time. They would want to be good, the last of my butterscotch morsals *sob* and 2 (count them 1, 2) whole blocks of 85% Cocoa Lindt. Damm that stuff is GOOOOD. Also these babys are huge. I hope you are getting through them Ben and Nat and enjoying them too. :) xxxxx *Happy Belated Bday too !*

BTW Do you like my new bowl? It was to go with the cute art deco plate.... but it was a victim to the horrors of moving :( as I told Rachel as she helped me unpack, lucky it only cost 2 bucks!

A biccie is a biscuit (or cookie).

Yay, Clare!! A working oven. And birthday treats with butterscotch morsels and chocolate chips? Too tasty!

SO glad the oven works! Your biccies look yum--and sound rich! Too bad about the dish. Guess you'll just have to go out shopping for more. : )

Hi Clare those cookies look absolutely divine !!! Save some for me !!! Sorry about discovering your late old plate but this bowl is pretty cute too. Glad this oven cooks great ! Richard and I cheated last weekend and used sara lee brownie mix which expanded and flattened out in our guess-timate oven and became cookies hehe but it tasted good and we ate all 16 of them in 2 days the little piggies that we are. :D

I'm glad your oven works. Yay! And those biccies (SUCH a cool word) look delicious. Can I have one?

my mum calls em biccies all the time [:

funny to read about all the hype bout your new oven!

and referring to Rachel's post, Sara Lee cookie dough is really quite good. you follow the time recommended, and you can get quite a divine hard-outside-and-soft-inside cookie.

but of course being the avid baker you are Clare, I'm sure premade cookie dough is a no-no for you?
