year-round homemade tomato sauce - canned tomatoes

Can’t believe it’s February already, but I’m happy at the same time. Last week was so weird. The weather kept changing day-to-day and everything would get wet in the evenings without it raining at all.  And I felt cranky all the time and probably annoyed my boyfriend way too much. (It’s what us girlfriends are for, no?)

I saw this article on Buzzfeed about de-stressing in the kitchen and I totally relate to it. My favorite way to de-stress in the kitchen is making dough and washing the dishes. I prefer to do the latter first, then make some dough and on a super asshole-y day I make pizza out of that. Nothing beats cheesy pizza and a beer. Well, maybe lasagna does.

Add some TV to that and I am #blessed.

oatmeal fudgy skillet cookie - blueberry sauce and ice cream

You know, I’ll just jump right into it. I’ve been wondering what to name this recipe. I think fudgy skillet cookie works great, but this is more than just a cookie.

It’s loaded with chocolate and chocolate chips, so it could be a brownie. It’s got oats which remind me of an oatmeal cookie. It’s served with a thick blueberry sauce and vanilla ice cream, which is a bit over the top and gives me cake or trifle vibes.

You could also simply call this your Friday night date. I’m not kidding, because that doesn’t sound bad at all. And you know I’d never judge you.

Brownie, cookie, potato, potahto, … I opted for fudgy skillet cookie. I like the sound of that, as it satisfies all my sweet cravings at once. I can just feel the gooey chewy chocolate bits, without even having a bite.

Here’s what I don’t get: Why is it always sunny during the week but come weekend it’s grey and crappy outside? It messes with my plans.

It’s funny because during the summer I normally do my best to hide from the sun. You put me out there for 10 minutes unprotected in the middle of the day and I’ll be the prettiest lobster around. More like the only lobster and not that pretty, but that’s beside the point.
