Note: The oven mitts are not to protect Jin from the hotness of the pans, but rather to protect the pans from the hotness of the Jin.

Gnat said...

Man I got everyting. The Bunt cake sure is pretty, and well it has some damage to it now...from me. Veddy nice veddy nice.


The cookies are all but gone. My friend from Pits came down and spied the cookie boxes. All I heard was a lot of rustling and a very loud moan. I found him hidding in the back yard with crumbs and a glass of milk. I seriously think he ate 15 or more cookies in under 10 minutes. He is a serious baked goods snob, and he gave them huge thumbs up.

I personally loved the lemon cardoman cookies.

I will just lay in wait until I see something else I can't live without. I don't think I will last long.

Raspberry brownies??? Better get those ready for my next sweet box.

jin said...

gyrobo:

Heeheeheeee!!!!

Too COOL

In fact, you win a prize.

You win the dessert that you sneezed all over!!!

BTW - that has to be one of the most creative comments I've ever received. Genius!

Gyrobo said...

Actually, there's a prize for whoever uploads the 1,001st Opera Widget. I should make another one...

I like the last picture - will the real tart stand up! It all looks good!

Ace said...

Munkees endorse mint brownies.

And raspberry brownies.

Munkees like berries!

jin said...

gyrobo:

I know, I saw that! I figured that's why you were making several. You should make another. May the force be with you.
;-)

Oh! Are you a warlock or something?! Would you believe that after you posted the link to dictionary.com & said that you have no troubles with it, that I have no troubles with it anymore?! I'm serious! LMAO! No more crashing.
*Insert Twilight Zone theme song here*

jin said...

phos:

LOL! I know it! That's why I said it first...I had a feeling half my readers would call me the tart!

Ewww....supposed to get another foot+ of snow tomorrow. :-P

jin said...

ace:

I know Munkees endorse mint brownies. :-D

And raspberry brownies.
So true, so true.

I also know that Munkees like berries!

But NO bananas or citrus or nuts! I'm on it! ;-)

Brioche said...

BISCOTTI!

Raspberry brownies? They sound deeeeee-li-cious!

Jewels said...

The Jewels endorses Mint Brownies as well, oh, and the Cappuccino ones too! And the Hedgehogs, oooh, the Hedgehogs, how could I forget...

Biscotti, Brioche, I'll share some with you honey!

Gyrobo said...

And using only my powers of the mind, I shall conjur for you images of the new Opera!

Pfffffff!

jin said...

Brioche

Mummy's no sucker.
If you want biscotti you have to go ask
Uncle Rich.

jin said...

Rebecca:

A dense layer of fudgy brownie,
topped with seedless raspberry preserves from Switzerland & covered with a thick layer of our Belgian chocolate glaze.

"deeeeee-li-cious!" is a very applicable term to describe them!
;-)
:-)

jin said...

jewels:

Oh, I ate soooo many cappuccino brownies a week & a half ago. I made a whole pan of them because we had all the fix-it guys coming in (for the toilet & the floor). I always make sure I have something sweet to give to the young muscle-y sweaty labourers.
;-)

jin said...

gyrobo:

You TEASE!!!

OMG! I want to click everywhere!!! 9 pages in ONE?!!?

*jin faints*

Gyrobo said...

If I must wait in anticipation, so must everyone I've ever met!

Gyrobo said...

But really, new tabs now have that Speed Dial thing by default instead of... nothing.

Also, they're considering removing the start bar. I hope you aren't too fond of it, the way it springs up every time you click the address bar.

G3T Films said...

I would never feed Brioche biscotti. That would be irresponsible of me!

*looks at Brioche* Shhhhh...

Get another foot? That's what she said!!!

Saw Milwaukee on the news, they had gale force winds on the lake, you could see the waves coming right over the break water were my bro and I used to fish for salmon. Yikes!!

jin said...

gyrobo:

I guess I am not too fond of the start bar seeing as I had to click on the address bar to know what you were talking about. Heehee. I think I can do without it.

You now have me addicted to Opera widgets. I downloaded soooo many this morning. Did you try the artist's sketchbook? How about the imageGREP?! AND the ANAGRAMS?! Ummmm.....but of course your 3 are still the best!
:-D

Brioche said...

rich!

*crunch crunch CRUNCH*

HOWWWLLLLLLLLicious!!!!!

:-P :-P :-P

*slobber slobber*

*crunch crunch CRUNCH*

I won't tell!
Uncle Rich you're the BEST!
:-P sloppy kisses :-P

*crunch crunch CRUNCH*

jin said...

phos:

We have more snow.
UGH. :-P

Still may be some more.
Double UGH. :-P

Tonight it was 36 degrees...but DAMP! OMG! The type of dampness that chills you to your core.

Take care of that knee of yours mister! Make mrs. phos wait on you!
;-)

ZOINKS!!!!

If that was your idea of a wedding dress, I need to go to more of the wedding you attend!!


P.S. I approve whole heartily.

jin said...

TAK:

Heehee! I thought you'd like that!
I wanted to pick something that wouldn't clash with your armour.
;-)

There's a reason why I stay away from this blog you know....

You are evil, Jin...but you already knew that didn't you! Luv ya!....

**EC slaps growling tummy and slinks away tearfully**

It is 69 degrees by me. Nice round number. What's cookin'(bakin'?) this weekend?

jin said...

EC:

Well it's too bad you had a taste in the *non-virtual* world of my goodies. Because THAT'S what hooks ya! ;-)

Those who haven't tasted yet just think gee...can't taste as good as it looks, can it?!
Silly fools!!!

;-)

jin said...

phos!

You suck soooo bad!!!
69 degrees?!!?
:-P
We got about 10 more inches of snow yesterday. :-(

We have a snowbank next to our neighbors garage that is as tall as the neighbors garage. D wants to take a pic of me on top of it so I can post it. I told him I'm only climbing all the way up there if we do something bizarre -- like me barefoot wearing not much of something red! Haaaaahahahahahaaaa!!!!
LMAO!
He surprised me by saying he'd take the shot if I'd do it. But...it is a little old ladies backyard...and she probably wouldn't even notice...but...but...but...lol!

Baked a few cakes this weekend, will post pics later on for your viewing pleasure!

Just don't fall through. I had a friend ski out of a second story window in South Dakota - we had hellacious drifting, and he put his ski pole through the top of a convertible buried in the snow. Whoops!!

Just made Linguine Alfredo

jin said...

phos:

MMMmmmm....Linguine Alfredo.
I actually make that about once every 2 weeks. We all love it. I add lots of portabella mushrooms.

LMAO @ a "ski pole through the top of a convertible buried in the snow" !!!
Ahhh...too bad they hadn't invented video cameras yet!
;-)
Heeheee!
