A downer of a baking story, such as it is.

The Daring BakersThe July Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Nicole at Sweet Tooth. She chose Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies and Milan Cookies from pastry chef Gale Gand of the Food Network.

I wanted to share a nice, long post all about the Milan Cookies (Milanos! Yum!) that my friend Amy and I made for the Daring Bakers this month. But AT&T is so pathetically unreliable that I have no Internet access at home, so I’m typing this at the library. And there are three kids next to me (not mine) arguing about what video they’re going to rent, and it’s just not working.

So I’ll tell you this: The cookies were delicious even though they were a bit underbaked and cakey rather than crunchy and oh, good night kids just agree on a dad-gum DVD and git.
