Or so I thought.
That darn Adrianna over at A Cozy Kitchen, she's turned me onto the wold of cute food. Maple bacon pancakes, biscuits of the same name, scones, crostinis, sandwiches, glitter nails, you name it! This girl knows her food, loves glitter, and knows how to cute things up. I kind of love her. Hence these garlic knots. There's garlic, and, Parmesan and butter, oh glorious butter, #yum. They're chock full o' cracked wheat and made with wheat flour which makes them good for you, #awesome. But it wasn't until I was tying the dough into double knots that I realized how cute they are. Too f**kin' cute! #bonuspoints
However, I didn't quite realize how much work such cute food requires. It was some time between my "I have made dough"dance around 2 am on Christmas morning and the dough's second rising sometime Christmas afternoon that I started to throw some serious side eye toward that Adrianna. I don't know how this girl manages to make cute cooking seem so easy, because even though I actually read the recipe before I made it, I still vastly underestimated how involved it was. It probably didn't help my cause that I kept getting my Christmas on in between steps [church, presents, bribing my mother into baking her German Apple Cake, cooking other things, etc], but still it was a lot of freakin' work.
But it was delicious work. Sooo delicious. And now I'm conflicted, because I want some more, but I'm lazy.
Damn that Adrianna.
*I really plan on doing better by you guys with my food photography. Let's go 2012!
