And Now, a Tweet from the President of the United States of America

What a weird way to defend yourself against an allegation. If he never said it would he need Mark Burnett to call him to say there is no physical evidence of it? And why was his spin team planning for an eventual release of a damning tape then?

Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter + Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in the mood for some home baked cookies. Found this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen:

These cookies came about when my friend asked me to bake something that he could bring to an event he was going to. Of course, anytime someone asks me to make a dessert I usually end up baking my famous brown butter + sea salt chocolate chip cookies (because they are absolutely phenomenal); however, I wanted to do something a little different with the cookies that would be surprisingly unexpected and delicious.

Ok, you have to wade through a few paragraphs of a description before you get to the ingredients list but that’s pretty much every recipe site ever. I used chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips and forgot the sea salt but voila:

These are really good but wayyyyyy too rich. I wasn’t diabetic before eating these but now I’m not sure. I’m going to give the rest away. Even for an atheist these are much too sinful.

Plane Makes Emergency Landing on Highway

I love the guy saying “I told you that guy was low” in the middle of the freakout.

Omarosa

I’m kind of enjoying the Omarosa press blitz. I don’t trust much of what Omarosa says to be true but trust Trump even less so am kind of enjoying Trump’s people having to fend off Omarosa’s claims makes me hungry for a slice of schadenfreude cake. Like this claim of Omarosa walking in on Trump eating a piece of paper:

The former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman claims in her forthcoming memoir that she once saw President Donald Trump eating a piece of paper in the Oval Office, The Washington Post reported Friday, citing excerpts it obtained.

“I saw him put a note in his mouth,” Manigault-Newman wrote, according to the newspaper. “Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. It must have been something very, very sensitive.”

Or that Trump wanted to be sworn in on a copy of The Art of the Deal.

Or Omarosa saying that Trump drops the N-word frequently. Or that she taped her own firing in what is supposed to be the ultra-secure Situation Room?

Trump has called her a lowlife in response to this. Ok dude but you’re the one who hired her!

Vanilla Bean Pots de Creme

It’s just me and Lola home tonight. Mrs. C is off to San Diego (I think. My memory is terrible). She’s not a fan of egg yolk so when she goes away I make Shakshuka. I think I’m going to try these Vanilla Bean Pots de Creme tonight for dessert. I’ll tell you how they are.

Update:

Meh. I may have screwed it up because I cut the recipe in half but I wasn’t a fan of the flavor. Chocolate pot de creme usually has a more intense flavor. This one…. not so much.
