Yes, I made these, and an expanded post with photo will be going up soon. Thanks to Nicole of Cookies on Friday for picking this recipe for today’s TWD.
I was supposed to be out of town, looking in on my auntie in Wisconsin. Except that . . .
- Milwaukee had seven inches of rain in 2 hours
- They closed the airport
- Midwest Airlines knew that the airport was closed and, consistent with its poor customer service in the past, failed to: call me, email me, OR UPDATE ITS AUTOMATED FLIGHT INFORMATION . . .
Whereupon, I sat in the airport for FIVE HOURS before I corralled an employee who informed me that the flight had been canceled at 5:00 am that morning. When I mentioned the aforementioned failings, which have been going on for at least 10 years (based on my personal, first-had knowledge), I was told that “Yeah, IT (information technology) is a problem with the company. But I don’t do that type of customer service.” I was told I would have to wait three days for space to open up on the next available flight out.
Needless to say, my patience is at an end, and I have re-booked on a competing airline. I figure 10 years of waiting for them to get their act together is long enough.
*End of rant. *
So, I went home and baked the blondies, which were really good. I cut back on the brown sugar to half a cup (I made a half batch) which was plenty sweet for me. I even kept the coconut in the recipe even though my husband doesn’t like it (I had a little bit left and I had to use it up), and it was not offensive at all.
