With autumn in full swing and holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to cozy up in the den with a plate of warm, hearty comfort food. For me, that means chocolate chip cookies.
But this time, I’m changing up my recipe.
My new ingredient? The new Google Nest Mini 2.
Today, I’m going to show y’all how this nifty little gizmo helped me speed things up in the kitchen and turn the tedious process into a breezy pastime.
Step1 started the previous day, when I decided upon a whim to bake a batch of my favorite snack.
So I turn and glance across the room to the small, gray, flying saucer-shaped device sitting on my desk.
Hey Google, I want to make chocolate chip cookies for 4. What do I need to prepare?
300 g unsalted butter
100g white sugar
60g brown sugar
500g AP flour
13g baking powder
200g chocolate chips
Step 2 involves shopping. Once I return home from the grocery store, I leave my smartphone in the foyer and start to set up in the kitchen.
Step 3: Follow the instructions Google tells me.
Beat softened butter with white sugar and brown sugar until smooth.
Mix flour, salt, baking powder and put aside.
Add eggs one at a time into butter mixture.
Add flour mixture to the butter egg mixture, forming cookie dough.
Mix chocolate chips with the cookie dough.
Preheat oven to 175C, and bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown.
Voilà, ready to serve!
So the process typically takes around 45 mins. Today, it took me 30 mins. And I did it without once picking up my phone, which is a blessing, since both my hands are covered in flour.
The non-stop K-pop in the background also makes a nice difference.
So, though I wouldn’t call this small flat sphere a godsend, here’s the benefits of cooking with Google Nest Mini 2:
- Super easy to find recipes online
- Someone to read out the ingredients list + instructions for you
- Get serving size, cooking time, tips, calorie count, etc.
- Set timer without touching your phone
- Convert measurements easily
- Great music and ambience
- You can save recipes and return to them later with Cookbook
