So, there's going to be this cultural luncheon thing at work next week, and Sweetie's going to be out of town (he's got an interview, isn't that great?) so I might spend the whole weekend baking! I really want to make some chickpea cookies and these things - I don't know what they're called - imagine if you made a funnel cake, but used honey instead of batter? They're like that. Good stuff.
Posting some recipe links, I'll let you know which ones I end up trying:

I figure, hey, if I'm gonna get fat, at least I'll be a good cook to boot.
