Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

Why am I baking many things these days? 🤔

I don’t know how it tastes like because I still haven’t tried it. 😂 I just like baking.

    These cookies are made according to Nigella’s recipe: https://www.nigella.com/recipes/chocolate-chip-cookies

    What I like most about your cookies is that you are generous with the chocolate chips! ❤ i have to try that recipe.

      😭 I tried to follow the recipe exactly what it describes jillian! And it said 326 g of chocolate chips, so I measured them. Am I misinterpreting something here? 🧐

        Actually it said 1*326 g packet or something like this, so I thought it meant 326 g.

    These look so good.
    I love cookies but I’m terrible at making them.
    They are tricky!
    I’ll try this recipe once.

      There are actually 2 things I wanna update with you: the first semester ended a month ago, and the grades were out yesterday, all of which were more than I expected! (So I should pass the minimal grade requirement to be able to continue this degree.) Another thing is that next semester, I’ll need to study more and take an exam named something like the Qualifying Exam. Many people said it was very difficult, so I’m a bit scared now. And all of them said I should just study in my next semester, so I just informed the uni that I won’t teach next semester. I miss my students and prospective students, but I guess the study will take most of my time and it will be too much for me doing both things during that time.

        The only word in Italian I know, which Eazal corrected me, is ciao. Is this right @eazal?

        1

          It’s albóndigas in Spanish.
          It would be polpette in Italian.
          And Egads is right, size it’s not important.
          You can send me some anytime, yay!!!

    They look delicious! If they are the size of mini-burgers, you can also call them sliders!😁 (A term I learned recently!)

      Ok thank you dramadillo, so here are my ‘sliders’ yay!!

      P.S. I’ve had a croissant, and my doctor I saw today recommended that I eat less carbohydrate. I’m legit sad. I live for carbohydrate. So I decided to postpone cooking spaghetti today. I’ll eat these with tomato sauce.

        Oh no!☹️ I am the same – I love my carbs and beige foods.😋 I have come to distrust the anti-carb thing (but I am neither a dietician nor a medical professional). I grew up eating carbs with every meal, and lots of cultures eat white rice and pasta (e.g. Japanese and Italian) and they are some of the healthiest populations, so I often wonder… But I guess it’s about eating in moderation and relative proportions (e.g. more veg than carbs, maybe?), rather than cutting it out completely. I send you my heartfelt commiserations!💗💗💗

          *whispers* I rarely got any scent from the flowers I’ve taken pictures of, this was no exception 🥺. The fact that I’m always wearing a mask doesn’t help either 😐.

I think people can write essays for each episode of Move to Heaven. It\’s that good.
It\’s a shame that it isn\’t recapped here on DB. It\’s a really really good drama.

    It is really sad? I want to watch but I saw posts on the fanwall suggesting someone died.

      Tbh, I felt emotionally manipulated at times, but they had very good reasons to be so. If you’ve watched Chocolate, it’s a little bit like that one but more complicated. It should be used for educational purposes imo.

          Chocolate was torture (unless you like to see how many unnecessary deaths and tragedies you can squeeze into each episode). I’ve watched several episodes of Move to Heaven and it’s sad, but also very satisfying.

          2
          8

            But there are many unnecessary deaths in the world. And because the story mainly involves the lives at a hospice, I think it didn’t stand out to me that it was strange. Cha-young’s cooking scenes helped me going, and the music is love.

            This is why we continue to be opposites @mmmmm. It seemed pretty over the top to me. I did become immune at some point, and I also stopped caring all together for that reason. Maybe we’ll find another drama to agree on in Bossam?

            Are you invested in the love between the OTP there?

            I like the majority of Chocolate, but yes there are unreasonably tragic things that I didn’t like, too. An example is when the ML got into an accident and didn’t get the surgery in time, and when the FL lost her sense of taste for some strange reason.

            2
            0

            I’m invested in the OTP in Bossam but haven’t forgiven him yet for his early actions toward her @mmmmm.

            Hello Opposite @ndlessjoie. It’s more official than ever that we will remain opposites. For some inexplicable reason, I am not invested in their love; I might as well add that I don’t like him that much LOL (will I be killed by K beans? 🥺) I respect the Princess and think that she’s a hundred times better than him and he doesn’t deserve her. I know how tragic his past is, but I still think that he’s getting so much from her, and it isn’t the other way round for him.

            2
            0

            So, wait…. if you don’t like Ba-woo very much or haven’t forgiven him for his actions in early episodes, you kind of are in agreement? 😆

            I think he’s made big improvements in saying “thank you” and “I’m sorry”, which to me are more important than rescuing her several times. I needed him to accept that she’s awesome before I could be invested in them as OTP.

            2
            0

            Oh.. I’m legit shocked. *shocked face* Are we in agreement @ndlessjoie?

            Right? @wishfultoki, she’s awesome. But why does the princess need to teach him the concepts of ‘thank you’ and ‘I’m sorry’ as if he is Tarzan and she’s Jane? He was so rude in the earlier episodes. *cries*

      Any guesses on what we’ll see in the next episodes?

      In SYHH, I was wondering if the big bad Chairman could be possessed, calling for one epic exorcism to defeat him at the end? Perhaps I’m just missing the action scenes!

          Episode 15 – what a cliffhanger!

          They accidentally found a way to destroy an egg ghost without sacrificing a life, it looks like?

          And we have to wonder if our heroine is alive or a vengeful ghost.

        So glad you discovered GG. There are 7 seasons you know! And season 1 has 21 whole eps, back when seasons were longer and more fun. Then when you’re done with all seven seasons, there is a year in the life of GG, a sequel. Can you believe the house Lorelei grew up in, Queen Anne furniture and all! Anyhoot, it’s a cool series, we.come! Oh, and Lane and her Oma, whaddyaknow!

        3
        1

          LOL, I mean Lane’s oma is a pretty strict lady, and I always admired Lorelei for her patience and grace when having to deal with her. There were times when I felt like Oma should be more considerate of others’ feelings. But we’ll, it’s a show and it’s doing great at portraying different ways people can be!

    My family tradition is to run outside and try to catch a flake on our tongue. Making hot chocolate on days it snows is another thing we do (it only snows a few times a year). I usually smell it coming and always think of it as a good omen, so I can relate to Lorelai.

    2
    2

      Ohh this so cute Mugy! When you talked about smell the snow coming, I suddenly thought of Lorelai. I just watched that episode yesterday. I LOVE hot chocolate too, and ofc chocolate milk. But the tradition of running while sticking your tongue out seems a bit funny in my imagination, but interesting as well.

      1

        I mean we go outside quickly, then stand around trying to catch a snowflake on our tongue.

      When I first saw snow in Norway, I was so excited I stayed outside the house for almost an hour. Then, I asked my host family if I could coop up the snow and eat it with syrup and they were shocked before telling me that it wasn’t safe to eat it because it was dirty. They were amused as well lol. 😂

      2
      1

        Yes, it’s probably not the best idea to eat the first flakes as they fall, but one can’t really hurt, right? If you’re going to eat it, it’s best to wait for fresh snow and just skim some from the top.

        1
        1

          Omo! That’s right! I mean people here drank rainwater in the past because there was so little pollution back then, too. I think that should apply to snow as well. This is gonna be one of my bucket list of things to do in this life.

        I HAVE ALL THE SEASON’S on DVD. I LOVED this show when it came out. I’ve given these to several friends and family members and most recently, my daughter watched them all. I didn’t like the reboot as much.
