Friday's Scoop 12/7/12

Well that was fast, it feels like I just sat down to write the first ever Friday's Scoop, but here I am scrambling to think of things to write about this time around! First, we can start off with how this week flew by! Did it for anyone else? It went by way too fast because I was barely able to bake anything! Even though I did little baking, I did make some of the most wonderful, delicious, scrumptious, sort of gluten free, sort of vegan cookies! I decided to break out my Babycakes Covers the Classics Cookbook because I have been having some GI issues, so I began to think about what could be aggravating my gut? My mind goes maybe gluten? maybe dairy?
As of now I still do not know what the issues are, but hopefully they will be resolved soon! As I flipped through the pages of Babycakes I had a tough time deciding which recipe to try, should I try the nilla wafers, or the chocolate chip cookies? or maybe the Thin Mints?
I decided on the Thin Mints. I altered the recipe the slightest bit and they were AH-MAZING! They taste like your lithe next-door neighbor delivered them with her wagon in tow and with her green vest on! Mind you they may not look all pretty and uniform, but they sure satisfy your longing for a thin mint! Here's a picture preview!

 Soon I will be sharing this recipe! I have not been able to take pictures because it has been getting dark so early! It is only five o'clock as I write this and it is pitch black outside! I don't like this, can't wait for the days to start getting longer! As I sit eclipsed by darkness (so poetic of me, not) I pin a ton, way more than I should on Pinterest! Just like last week here are some of my favorite pins from the week!

Whole Wheat Coffee Cake Muffins from How Sweet Eats Kind of healthy and looking mighty delicious, count me in!

Brown Sugared Carrots from Cooking Channel Cooked carrots can be a great addition to a holiday meal, but beware not to overcook! No one wants mushy carrots! I can't wait to taste this inventive combination of brown sugar and carrots!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles from Bakerella I am not much of a truffles person, but this picture just looks so enticing! Maybe these will be the truffles that convert me!

What did you pin this week? I hope something tasty!

And some Instagrams!
Another one of my recipes was featured on FoodBuzz! So excited!
My new boots arrived! Do you like? So far I am really liking them, did not need to break them in!
Here's like 1/16 of my nail polish collection, to me nail polish is kind of a big deal. Okay maybe a HUGE deal, seriously sometimes I change it the next day, or even just two days later! Do you like nail polish as much as I do? 
By the way...I joined Twitter! You can follow me here!
Thanks for reading, I will try to get some new recipes up soon!

P.S. Please bear with me as I fiddle around with the blog layout, I am trying to figure out which I like best! Do you have any suggestions?
