Still Stuck for Favors

This whole favor thing is spiraling out of control. First the whoopie pies didn't taste that good. Then the chocolate covered blueberries were too much work. And finally, a horrible combination of the two: chocolate blueberry marble cookies that taste TERRIBLE and were way, way too much work.

Here's the recipe, you can try it yourself if you don't believe me. Better yet, just give me a call and I will give you the other half of the dough that I didn't use because it simply wasn't worth it.

Sure, they look great.

But there is more to cookies and wedding favors that sheer looks. Let me explain to you the pain of this process. First you have to boil the berries. Then you have to make 2 separate doughs, which requires the washing of dishes. Yuck. Then you have to chill the doughs because they are too sticky to work with fresh out of the mixer. Then you make each singular cookie with equal parts of each dough, rolling and marbleizing as you go.  Well, I just think that's insanity.

So I mixed the 2 doughs together and went about it that way. Turns out, it's still a lot of work and a very sticky mess. Then, after all that, you bake them and have a bite.... and think to yourself: "This needs more chocolate."

But even when you add the chocolate chips, there still isn't enough chocolate and the cookies still taste gross. So you continue thinking to yourself, "maybe they really are good, but I can't tell because I don't like fruit that much." But then, your family comes over the next day and tells you, no... they aren't very good. 

And then you slice your finger off while using your mandoline to cut potatoes. So you take some time off from cooking and crafting, and pretty much doing anything that requires any work at all. Next thing you know, it's been a few weeks since your last post and it's a good thing you didn't post about those stupid cookies when you made them 2 weeks ago, because then you'd have nothing to write about. 

And then you go home and throw the rest of the cookies away - because no one ate them - and you wonder, what are you gonna do about favors?

So then, what am I gonna do?
