If you’re not familiar with malt. Familiarize yourself with it. Just not here. I’m not going to go into detail as to what it is or how it came about. Because I’m not sure myself and every time I try to tell you people something I get that one asshole emailing me telling, “That’s not true.” They have nothing else better to do than sit on the internet and tell people they’re wrong.
Have you ever used a Hot Toddy to get over a cold? It seems like this is the old fashioned way of dealing with a cold. I understand why it’s old fashion but I think we should bring it back.
I was originally going to call these “Double Fudge Cookies” since I already have a brownie cookie recipe in my repertoire. Everyone that had the pleasure of being a tester or stole a cookie said, “It’s like a brownie!” So they are the Fudge Brownie Cookie. Appropriate.
Fun Fact: I had made the Cherry Tequila Sunrise as an afterthought. I originally soaked the cherries to make this ice cream. When you’re not looking or paying attention and you just let go and go with life’s flow. That’s when good things happen. Life is like that. Unless you’re driving. I’ve let myself go and wandered while driving and almost took out a guardrail. A dog. Some bushes. Other cars. People.
Is this considered a food hack?? I guess it depends on who you ask. When I was growing up you’d be considered a lazy bastard. Nowadays, everyone is just too damn sensitive so it’s not nice to call people lazy bastards. We have to call it a food hack. I get it now. You’re not a lazy bastard, it’s a food hack. Wink, wink…
Years back I went to Brazil to visit one of my most amazing friends ever, Michel. Let me tell you meeting Michel is one of those moments that happens only in the movies. It was totally random and bizarre and I consider him one of my closest friends and I love the hell out of the guy. He is beyond talented, he is dedicated, hard working, soft spoken, smart and physically flawless to look at. He is actually everything I hate in a person and I love the guy beyond the stars. I would do anything for the guy.
It’s times like these when I hate myself. I was talking with a coworker that asked me “don’t you just hate these people?” To which I thought, I jokingly say I hate someone but I don’t really hate anyone. Hate is a strong word and I prefer not to use it. I will use it, but I prefer not to.
