(Well, maybe. See the last bit of this post!)
Anyway, I finished grad school three weeks ago yesterday (!).
Then I immediately went to Boston for an intense but awesome two-week-long institute related to my job (!!).
So writing-wise, I must admit I’m a little spent (thus the brief nature of this post)…
But luckily, exhaustion of the mind does not have anything to do with baking! So here’s what I made today, on a whim: another favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (can’t believe it wasn’t on the blog yet!) sprinkled with a treat I bought myself when I was in Massachussetts: Maldon sea salt, which I’ve been trying to find for a long time!
These are delicious: chewy, chocolatey, giant, and the fancy sea salt is the perfect finishing touch to play off the brown sugar and dark chocolate.
My birthday’s coming up, and I do have plans to bake myself a cake, so you’ll see that soon. And who knows, maybe I’ll start baking and blogging again… but for the time being, I am completely reveling in having no reading to do or papers to write, and I don’t want this blog to become a to-do list. So posts may be sporadic, but I hope you’ll enjoy them when they pop up!
