I am very interested in these Chocolate Migraine Cookies... ;)
kitmizkit on December 2nd, 2010 01:06 pm (UTC)
The recipe is here! :)
From Mission Impossible To MissionInfreakingsanitynot_from_stars on December 2nd, 2010 01:10 pm (UTC)
Oh thank you! :) I know what to make and have on hand during next migraine.
kitmizkit on December 2nd, 2010 01:16 pm (UTC)
*laughs* Under the logic that if you've got a migraine you might as well indulge? :)
From Mission Impossible To MissionInfreakingsanitynot_from_stars on December 2nd, 2010 01:17 pm (UTC)
Well, yes. :D Because my daughter swears that dark chocolate of any kind or chocolate cookies help tame my beast during a migraine.

I've got a migraine RIGHT NOW! I need to immediately bake these cookies.

And I find that chocolate for migraines is a bit like the hair of the dog. Sure it can trigger a migraine, but it can often ease one. I don't know how it works, but sometimes it does.
From Mission Impossible To MissionInfreakingsanitynot_from_stars on December 2nd, 2010 04:37 pm (UTC)
*nods* It never causes mine, but there is something in chocolate that seems to ease mine.

Of course, now that mizkit showed me the recipes I have a feeling I will be teaching my teen to make those a lot. *grins*

They really are excellent cookies, but they also do trigger migraines in my chocolate-sensitive husband, hence the name. :)

with those cookies a 'simple' (relatively speaking) cheesecake is a nice alternative....

I have voted for turtle cheesecake because I have no idea whatever what it is. And it is thus Exotic and Interesting. Though my party standard is rhubarb yoghurt cake.
kitmizkit on December 2nd, 2010 01:37 pm (UTC)
That sounds delicious. Will you share the recipe? :)
Kari Sperringla_marquise_de_ on December 2nd, 2010 01:58 pm (UTC)
Of course. I'll email it to you.

I like gingerbread cheesecake. Gingerbread cookie recipe without the eggs added so it is a dryish crumb mixture. Add 1/4 cup to your basic cheesecake recipe. Add enough to make the crust. Pour cheesecake over crust then bake.
mikaela_lmikaela_l on December 2nd, 2010 02:05 pm (UTC)
Catie, is the temperature in the Migraine cookie recipe in F or C? 350 C sounds odd.
kitmizkit on December 2nd, 2010 02:06 pm (UTC)
F. It's like 150 or something C or gas mark 6ish. (Hi, I'm an American. :))
mikaela_lmikaela_l on December 2nd, 2010 02:19 pm (UTC)
I suspected that it was in F. But I wanted to check, just in case :) Oh. I used internet to convert it to C, and it was 176.9999 C. So, 175ish. All right. I am off to convert the rest of the recipe. LOL.

How cajun is New York?
Buttery King Cake! Or some other Tasty Cajun Dessert.

Re: How cajun is New York?
I suddenly feel we should put off the Cajun idea until Mardi Gras...

(Somehow my Google Fu wasn't strong enough to put in "cajun desserts", I guess. Thank you!)

Pumpkin cheesecake is superior cheesecake.

as a (usual) disliker of cheesecake (there are some very very few i like, such as eggnog cheesecake), i'm voting for something else totally lol

as for what exactly... not sure. you already have chocolate covered, so maybe a poppyseed chiffon cake or apple cream pie?
Min: Supernatural/Dean2phantomminuet on December 2nd, 2010 03:23 pm (UTC)
Pie!
