I’ve already mentioned that cakes are my favorite form of dessert so you know it’s a big deal when I make cookies. Usually, they’re for A. His favorite form of dessert is cookies and if they’re chocolate chip, you’d better hide your share. Obviously, I made these a few days ago. The conversation went like this:
Me: What do you want for dessert? Cookies?
A: Do you have to ask?
Me: Chocolate chip?
Ohh, rhetorical question.
And so these little morsels were born. Double chocolate (white and dark), a large dose of vanilla, and a healthy amount of butter.
TGIF!! Have a wonderful weekend and eat a chocolate chip cookie for me!
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Yield: ~41 cookies
3 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 c salted butter, softened
1 c raw sugar (or white)
1 c brown sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 c white chocolate chips
3/4 c chocolate chunks (unsweetened – you can use semi-sweet if you prefer)
Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine butter and sugars together until well-mixed. Add in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Packing to go anywhere is always a challenge but I’d have to say that packing for the UK proves to be the biggest challenge of all. I’ve had a bad record with under-packing; our road trip to Ireland was proof of that. I packed all wrong for that trip: summer dresses and short sleeves when I should’ve…

The cat and I made friends. Actually, no. She was eyeing me resentfully, like I was disturbing the peace. I guess I kind of was. I wore this super comfortable and perfect travel outfit during one of our days in Amalfi. In hindsight, I probably should have worn something sleeveless because after 1700 steps down…
Lately I’ve been on a crepe kick. Blame it on my sweet tooth (see Gluten Free Pecan Torte or Chocolate Chocolate Cake if you need a refresher) or on the fact that it’s summer. In fact, I already posted a crepe picture earlier this week on Instagram. And now I’m dedicating an entire post to them. Crepes are thin, French…
Remember when I mentioned I had a friend who came over for a cooking marathon? No? Well, do you remember these homemade marshmallows? Now do you remember? I really wasn’t exaggerating when I said he came over and we had some cooking fun. If there’s anything that’s more fun to make than marshmallows, it’s caramel sauce. This…
I’m an Italian food gal at heart. Even though I don’t allow myself to enjoy it often, I love anything and everything Italian from stromboli to pasta to gelato, the latter being my favorite. I miss Venice. I still have dreams of their stracciatella gelato. In fact, when we were in Baltimore, we went to…
