Miss Inexperience does cookie compliance

In the side bar of this this site, there is now a warning letting you know that I use google analytics, it makes me feel better about blogging because I can see that people are actually reading what I write.  Silly, perhaps but there it is.  In order to comply with the EU cookie law I need to tell you about this, so I have.  If you stay here then you agree that I can see anonymised data about you through my google analytics account, it’s not sinister it just makes me feel better.

Anyway now you’ve had the warning if you’d rather have my recipe for rather nice chocolate chip cookies then here it is:

  • 100g chocolate
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 75g soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 150g plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt

Preheat the oven to 190 deg C.  Line two baking sheets with grease proof paper.

Chop the chocolate into small chunks and set aside.

Heat the butter and sugars in a small saucepan until combined, stirring continuously.

Add the egg and vanilla, beat until blended.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and stir them in.

Add the chocolate.

Dot heaped desert spoonfuls of the mixture over the lined baking sheets – leave plenty of space between them, they spread out a lot when cooking.

Bake for 8-10 minutes then carefully transfer them complete with baking parchment to a cooling rack.  They taste good hot or cold.

    My Canadian son will be doing on MFA at UCL this Sept. We have a narrow boat moored in the Midlands. Do you know of any moorings we could rent for him that have access to London?

      I am not necessarily the best person to answer this as I never intended to stay in London as long as I did and therefore did not research the local moorings. Moorings in central London are rarer than hens teeth and in general are not officially residential which means you’re not officially allowed to live there.

      Moorings further out are more reasonable but would mean commuting and might separate your son from the universities social life. I would do an Internet search for available moorings, then compare prices, facilities and distance from university in order to make a decision. It might for example be possible to get a 6 month mooring at Limehouse for a reasonable amount. A lot depends on what’s available at the time and moorings in the London area are at a premium.

      Good luck.
