9 PM on a Friday night, about 88 degrees in a just-cleaned Brooklyn, NY apartment
G: [Smacks lips] "What do I have to do to get you to bake something?"
M: "Why! What do you want me to bake? I was thinking of baking something!"
M goes to kitchen, sits on floor browsing cookbooks for 15 minutes. Re-enters living room.
M: [Glumly] I'm not baking anything. It's too hot and I just cleaned the kitchen for the night.
G: [Sighs] Okay.
M: I MEAN UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT ME TO! What do you want me to bake?? SHOULD I MAKE COOKIES? Okay, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you want cookies?
Cut to M, in kitchen, sweating, stirring, possibly swearing and saving preheating the oven for the last possible minute.
Lemon-Poppyseed cookies from Kelly Peloza's The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur. G had about 3 last night and I brought the rest in to work. They were gone by the end of the day, so I guess they were good. I enjoy baking but really try not to eat so much sugar so I only had half of one. Recommended by proxy.
