cookie mixture

All Bottled Up

Here’s Part 2!

“We really should’ve let the cookies cool down.” Keith said, lifting the ice cream sandwich to hus mouth before it drips to the couch.

“Ya think?” Lance laughed on the floor, fervently licking at his hand for every drip of the melting ice cream.

“You guys stick with your ice cream, while I enjoy my doughy, warm goodness.” Shiro gave up on the ice cream sandwich and grabbed a bowl from the counter. There he dunk his share of the cookies and mashed them together. He ate the warm cookies with a spoon and seemed content with it.

“I have an idea!” Lance crawled towards them, grabbing the tub of ice cream on the table and his share of warm cookies. He kneeled in front of them on the couch and waved for Shiro to hand over his bowl.

“What are you planning, Lance.” Shiro raised a brow at Lance, refusing to hand over his bowl. He saw the mischievous glint of Lance’s eyes, he knows the idea was a bad one.

Lance rolled his eyes at him. “Keeeeith, your boyfriend won’t hand his goods!” Lance whined, pawing at Keith’s shoulder.

“Pfft, Lance, you can’t just say things like that!” Keith laughed, burrowing even deeper on Shiro’s chest. They occupied much of the couch’s space where Shiro sat at the corner and Keith languidly leaning on Shiro’s side with his feet on the remaining space.

They look comfy, Lance thought as he tried to grab Shiro’s bowl.

“No! You’re gonna ruin it with your ice cream!” Shiro refused to hand over the bowl, enjoying the way Lance tried to reach for it.

Shiro has to admit that it was fun hanging out with Lance. It was like he was friends with him too.

They’ve been eating cookies and ice cream for a while now, and he very much enjoyed Lance’s company. Of course it’s also a plus how Lance made Keith smile. He can see now that Keith and Lance truly had years of friendship connecting them in a way that it’s fascinating to watch. Whenever Keith would recall a certain event in their younger years, Lance would smile wide and continue the story with much enthusiasm that all you could do was listen and smile back.

Given the fact that they had a rocky reunion, you wouldn’t know that they just had a confrontation a while ago with the way they were talking to each other. Keith was relaxed in his arms, laughing and eating melting ice cream. That’s all he could ask for.

“Cmon, Shiro. Pleeease?” Lance leaned in further, his hand digging on the sofa’s surface between his legs and his chest near his. His face was close too and he was struck with how blue his eyes were.

2 times you hated his height and the 1 time you didn’t - Steve Rogers

The first time his height was advantageous was the normal day to day. You were planning on making some cookies and some idiot had put the packets of chocolate chips on the top shelf of the cabinets. Now you weren’t the shortest flower in the garden but the cabinets in Stark towers were catered to 6-foot tall superheroes. You clambered up onto the counter to try and reach the shelf only the chocolate chip packet was too far in the cabinet for you to grasp it. You groaned and hopped off. Tony felt like there was no need to have stools in the kitchen since no one needed to reach the top cabinets. You spotted on of the bar stools and realised you could use that if you held it steady. You walked across the kitchen and put two hands under the seat of the stool to lift it up. And holy shit was it heavy. You tried three times to lift up the stool but all three times, its weight bested you. Out of anger, you kicked the barstool forgetting it was made out of metal. The hugest shout of pain left your mouth. Steve ran into the kitchen after hearing your sound of pain.

“What did you do?” He asked, towering over your curled up body on the floor.

“I kicked the stool” You replied, sitting up still clutching your foot

“why?”

“I wanted chocolate chips and I was too short to get the packet because of these stupidly high cabinets. I tried to use the stool to climb on but it was too heavy so I got annoyed that I couldn't pick it up so I kicked it.”

Steve laughed.

“Hey, don’t laugh at me. Help me”

Steve stopped laughing to extend his hand to you which you used to hoist yourself up. You led him back to the cupboard and he effortlessly pulled the packet of chocolate chips out and handed them to you. You saltily took them from his hand and poured the pack into the cookie dough mixture and started the stand mixer up again so it would fold the chips into the batter. Steve stood behind you and wrapped his arms around your waist, leaning his head on your shoulder.

“What do you want green giant?”

“Is someone jealous of their height?”

“I just think that it’s stupid that everything is put so high up so that all of you freakishly tall men can reach them but I can’t.”

“We’ll take note of that next time we go shopping and we’ll keep your stuff at an easy to reach level”

“Now what do you really want?”

“Can I not hug the woman of my dreams without an ulterior motive?”

“You want cookie dough don’t you?”

“Mmm maybe”

You stopped the mixer and lifted the lid up, scooping the mix off the paddle. You held up your finger and felt Steve’s lips suck off the mixture.

“I can not wait until these are baked.”

“If you help me portion the batter then you can eat them faster.”

Steve moved back and got a spoon from the drawer in front of you and started putting tablespoons on the trays. Once all the mixture was on the 6 different trays you put them in the oven, thanking Tony for installing huge double ovens in the kitchen. 11 minutes later the cookies were out of the ovens and left to cool slightly.

“Hey look, Santa and his elf baked cookies” Clint yelled, making an obvious dis at your differing heights.

You stuck your middle finger up at him and bit a cookie.

The second time you absolutely hated his height was when you were on a mission. It was supposed to be an easy mission, you were supposed to steal another potential A.I threat and you and Steve were given a side mission to steal the information from the servers of the place where the A.I was being hidden. 

You advanced computer skill made you part of the avengers. Most new threats were technological and at times just brawn wasn’t enough, therefore, you, the brains, were enlisted to help. As your fighting skills were still in development, Steve was told to accompany you in the mission so that you didn’t get yourself killed. 

Steve stood watch by the office door whilst you were typing away at the computer, hacking through the numerous firewalls the computer had in place. Once you had finally cracked through you copied everything on the desktop onto a USB drive given to you by fury.

“You know, we haven’t gone out for dinner in ages”

“Hmm, we haven’t have we?”

“There’s this new Mexican place that opened a couple of blocks from the tower. Take me there at 7?”

“Tomorrow?”

You nodded.

“It’s a date.”

“Uhm Cap, I hate to ruin your little cutesy session but the lower levels of this building are on fire. The package is secure but you and Y/N need to get out of there now.”

The computer dinged to show that everything was copied and you yanked the UDB drive out of the computer and ran up 10 floors, with fire slowly following you, to the roof to see the QuinJet hovering with the rest of the team. The hatch was still open so that you and Steve could jump and hold on and, with the assistance of the others, yank yourselves in.

Steves 6 ft 2″ height made jumping and grabbing a much easier task compared to your shortness. He ran and jumped grabbing onto the hatch door and getting pulled up by Sam.

You felt the heat of the fire behind you and you turned to see it blazing behind you.

“Baby, you can do this. I promise you.”  He called out.

“I’m not going to reach Steve, I’m too short” You yelled back, feeling the heat of the fire.

“You can, you just need to trust yourself okay.”

“It’s not going to happen.” You took the USB drive out of your pocket, getting ready to throw it up. “Give this to Fury”

“No, you’re jumping Goddamnit.”

He yelled for Sam and lied down with his arms and torso dangling over the edge of the hatch and with Sam holding his feet.

“Aim for my hands. I’m going to catch you. I promise”

In the short few moments, the fire got worse. It would only be a matter of seconds before the lower levels imploded.

You pocketed the UDSB and stepped back and ran towards the jet, Jumping with all your might and grabbing onto Steve’s hands. Sam pulled his legs in, getting you securely into the Jet. Steve grabbed you into his arms as the hatch fully closed.

“We are never doing that again” He mumbled into your hair. 

You nodded into his chest breathing in his scent that made you feel safe whilst trying to regulate your breathing.

There were times when you loved the sense of security and safety his tall frame brought to you. At the end of every mission, he would be sure to envelop you into a bear hug as the adrenaline that was released as a result of the fighting was wearing off. It brought you back from being Agent Y/L/N and you reverted to plain old Y/N. 

This mission was no exception. It was a pretty simple mission, you, Steve, Clint and Nat got into a Hydra base, injured a few security guards and stole back classified S.H.I.E.L.D information. It seemed weird, but hacking into heavily encrypted computers with multiple firewalls got your blood pumping. The rush of finding out secrets was equal to the feeling Steve got after punching Hitler. 

Once you were done, he grabbed your hand and gave you his shield and punched his way back to the jet. You’d learnt a few tricks and could smash someone’s jaw with one upwards thrust of the shield. Once the four of you were back on the jet and autopilot was running, Steve made his way over to you. His suit was half on half off and chest was covered by a white tank top. He wrapped his arms around your waist and moved one hand behind your head. You wrapped your arms around his torso and the two of you swayed in each other’s arms. The safety and comfort you felt were unparalleled to anything else. You hated how tall Steve was in comparison to you, but this moment made you forget all about it and made you realise his height was home.

This was harder to write than I anticipated but after I contemplated having a baking session to ‘cook up’ some ideas (I’m full of puns today - apparently including the title), I actually got the idea for where this story should go. Also, Steve x Wanda - I ship it. ;) This story is for awardlosinglosers, I hope it’s alright. Enjoy, my darlings!

Prompt: y/n is new to the avengers (joined around the same time as the twins). y/n is very shy, only talking to clint and nat at first. y/n got to know everyone slowly, leaving bruce to last due to his scarly violent abilities. eventually, y/n and bruce became friends, but the fear was always still sitting at the back of y/n’s mind. the rest of the avengers began noticing his particular interest in y/n, not atraction, something else.

“Cookie Monster”

Bruce was used to it by now – the distance people kept, the fear they had of his every move, the way their eyes pored over him like a bomb ready to explode. He was used to it. Yet, for some reason, when she did it he felt horrific.

You had joined the Avengers not long after the twins, having been in the same Sokovian base. Whereas the twins had volunteered for experimentation, you’d been taken at the much younger age of 9 and tested on ever since. As a result, you’d become a hollow shell who was dependant on orders. It was only after the battle with Ultron that the twins recalled having seen you a few times and asked to search the base for you. Sure enough, you were found hiding in the shadows, waiting for instruction and help. Tony had described your powers blandly as invisibility but it was more accurately camouflage. You could take the appearance of whatever environment you were in or even just become a shadow, a wisp of dark fog.

However, after joining the Avengers, you rediscovered your humanity. Though you were still shy, you were slowly beginning to have your own thoughts and feelings again. You talked mainly to the twins, Clint and Nat, frightened of Tony’s boisterous personality, Steve and Thor’s huge figures and Bruce’s… Well, Bruce. You didn’t mean to be so terrified of him, particularly when you knew he couldn’t control it, but something about the idea of a man so volatile was not appealing after the way HYDRA had treated you. These thoughts raced through your mind as he sat across the table from you, sipping a glass of water peacefully. Wanda was sat next to you and sensed your discomfort. Relax. Her voice urged you.

A Super short drabble, You and Peter have been together for about a month but are keeping it quite for now.

 

“Peter, I swear if you keep stealing the dough theirs not going to be any left to bake’ you laughed as he stuffed even more cookie dough into his mouth. “bu ts oo ood’ he tried to compliment through his mouth full of the sweet concoction . “god you are so handsome’ you joked as you looked at his stuffed cheeks, and brushed the crumbs from his smiling mouth , he swallowed loudly ‘aww thanks sweets’ he replied sarcastically as he wrapped his arms around you and rested his chin on your shoulder, you leaned in to him for a few moments just enjoying the feeling of closeness, the cookie mixture sitting forgotten on the cold marble work surface.

He gave you a kiss on the cheek and slowly began travelling down your jaw to your neck, you let out a breathy moan as you came to your senses, ‘ Peter what if someone comes in?’ you mumble as you lean back to look at him.

As you said those fatal words, you heard a throat being cleared, you and Peter sprang apart as though you had been electrocuted. It was the professor. “I wouldn’t worry about people finding out, most of the Students and some of the staff have been taking bets on when you two would get together; and besides, Peters thoughts are so loud it would be a wonder if every telepath in the world didn’t know by now .“ You watched Peters face, usually full of confidence with a comfortable smirk on his lips, turn a rather lovely shade of pink; at the thoughts that the professor was referring to. “Me and jean are beyond pleased that the pinging has stopped to say the least,’ The older man chuckled. You joined Peter’s blushing at this comment, you had liked him for so long and every thought seemed to loop back around to him, his smile, his laugh his easy going attitude his love for his mother and sisters and his new found friends. There you go again, you scolded yourself as the professor raised his eyebrows at you and smiled.

“All joking aside, I’m pleased that you are both happy, I’m sure you will do wonders for each other and I wish you every happiness. Theirs no need to hide, not here.’

 

Have a great day and be safe

‘Tis The Season

Just a little holiday-themed fluff to try and ease me back into this whole writing thing. Ignores Cat leaving CatCo, because I still like to pretend that that never happened. Happy holidays, lovely people; I hope you have a wonderful (and safe!) few days :)

Cat is quiet as she presses open her front door and slips inside, smiles when she hears the sound of laughter echoing from the kitchen down the hall.

It’s a sound that, up until just a few months ago, had been so rare in her apartment – she was used to coming home from work to find Carter curled up with a book or his homework or playing video games, with Ella nearby watching him with a quiet but careful eye.

Now she is much more likely to find him chasing after the woman that has lit up both of their lives with so much brightness and joy, and today is no exception, as Cat kicks off her heels and pads down the hallway towards the sound of Carter’s voice.

1 cup of GF oats
2 tbsp maple syrup
2/3 cups shredded coconut

Ingredients: 

Bars:

  • ¾ cup butter (12 tablespoons), softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure lemon extract
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest (from 1 large lemon or so)

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Lemon Drop Glaze:

  • 6 ounces lemon drop candies, crushed
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or milk (see note)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and lemon extract and mix for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest, flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined.

Zähnts Türli

Mailänderli are probably one of the most popular christmas cookies in Switzerland, as they are really easy to make and there are tons of ways to decorate them.

Ingredients:

250g soft butter
225g sugar
1 pinch of salt
3 fresh eggs
Zest of 1 lemon (organic)
500g flour
1 fresh egg yolk
1 teaspoon of water

Mix the soft butter, the sugar and the salt in a bowl, then add one egg after the other and stir until the batter is light yellow. Then add the lemon zest and the flour and mix everything together. Let the dough sit for at least in a cold place.

To form the cookies, use cellophane wrap or a little bit of flour to roll it out with a rolling pin until it’s evenly spread out and about 8mm thick. Use cookie cutters in various shapes to cut out the cookies, then put them on a tray with baking paper. Put them into the fridge for about 15 minutes, then paint them with a mixture of the egg yolk and the water. Let them bake for 10min at 200°C, and let them cool down.

Variations:
Don’t paint the Mailänderli with the egg yolk, and decorate them with lemon icing:

150g of powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
(optional: food colouring)

Mix the ingredients until its a viscous icing and decorate the cookies with the mixture after baking them, you can also additionally put lemon zest, roasted almond splitters or sprinkles on the cookies while the icing is still wet

She has workout videos too, AND she’s repping the Chinese/Vietnamese community!! Check her out if you’re interested in working out more, or getting more organic/vegan recipes.

Ingredients (makes around 6 small cookies):
1 banana
Around ¼ - ¾ cups of rolled oats/oatmeal
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
½ tablespoon honey (optional)

Any other flavoring you might want, such as coconut extract with coconut flakes, cranberries, etc.

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ 176 degrees Celcius.

Cook in oven for approximately 7-12 minutes (you can add marshmallows on top after 7 minutes and put back in oven until marshmallows are soft and brown); if placing in microwave, put on high for around 5 minutes or until solid. Serve and enjoy!

Bad Uncle

Part of the Snow Swift series


TAYLOR POV

“Ali, can you clear up for dinner?” I asked my 7-year-old daughter as she sat at the table surrounded by coloring books and stickers.

“Ali, can you clear up for dinner?” She said back, looking straight at me.

“Alice Wiles.” I said sternly, putting my hands on my hips.

“Alice Wiles.” She replied, putting her hands on her hips.

“Okay then, no dessert for you, missy.” I said, smirking slightly.

“Okay then…. wait what?” She said, realizing what I had said.

“You were being snarky and repeating everything I said, so no dessert tonight…which is really too bad since I’m making cookies for ice cream sandwiches…. I guess there will just be more for Daddy, Danny and I.” I said, turning away from her.
