Karma is a cookin…
Karma is a cooking….
Ok so I edited this post If you missed the original one Well ... For those of you who didn't Well...you know why Thanks too a good friends phone call I realized.... What for? It doesn't make me look good ....even if I am 1000% right! For those Confused - basically I was happy about someone else's misfortune - that someone else being a person who wronged me (not my ex bytw) So here is the rest of the post - unedited...... I am not evil ..funny that yesterday…I was so busy with a party yet still out of no where…my thoughts went to what happened several years ago between us pain is funny like that it hits you…when you least expect it and it hurts still….even after moving on and excepting the blow. could it be "karma"? is this Hashems (g-d) way of making his point yet again that wether I am aware of it or not he rules the world…and sees all? and one day…. we all have to answer for our actions ( me included). amazingly…things like this happen to me CONSTANTLY. I think about a person or event that I haven't thought of for ages... and then the next day or even hour they appear ...or I hear something about them… weird…I know but … ( i will stop while I am ahead...) this all being said karma works both ways and yesterday mine was all good doing what I love best cooking in the kitchen for a big event So much fun... SO SO much hard work... for 24 hours I was glued to my stove... that I can honestly say... there were several times I wondered if I lost my mind ….to accept this job no longer having my " tastebuds staff" to help me! But all worked out deliciously! karma is a cookin... and I will take days like yesterday any day of the week! Just a little taste of what I made yesterday for dessert:
Strawberry Shortcake plates
For the cookies:
1 package of favorite brand butter cookies (or you can make your own – my recipe here)
- 1 cups confectioners’ sugar (more if needed)
- 1 lb cream cheese, softened at room temperature
- 2 tbsp. Strawberry Syrup
In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and cream cheese. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.
Add syrup and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more sugar if needed for spreading consistency.
Lay out half your cookies on a cookie sheet and pipe on a dollop of the cream cheese frosting to the center. Then cover all the cookies with remaining cookies creating your sandwiches.
For the Orange Liqour infused Whipping cream:
2 carton of Frozen Whip Cream Topping ( I use Riches whip – brands like Hadar or Leiber are double the size so you will only need 1 carton)
3 tbsp. Orange liquor or your favorite kind
1 tsp. cream of tarter
In a standing mixer whip your cream and liquor on high speed for several minutes. Add the cream of tarter and continue to whip till you get stiff white peaks.
Pipe onto plate and garnish with a fresh slice of strawberry
