Since I've spent a lot of time indoors, thanks to the recent snowstorm that came through our city, I've done a little baking and some cooking. Saturday morning I desperately needed to make chocolate chip cookies, but we had no chocolate chips. When I was about to cry and force my husband to drive to the grocery store in the snow, I discovered 3 full size Hershey bars in our freezer. Still don't know why we had these in the freezer, but for the record, they are great chopped up in your cookies!
I need to confess to you all that one of the only reasons I make cookies, is to eat the dough. Below is evidence of that. I've also recently decided that I need to have less shame on my blog. Less shame = showing you pictures of my snow day attire.
Prettiest girl in the world, right? Greasy hair plus pajamas and over-sized sweaters are one of the best parts of snow days!
Here's the cookie recipe I used. Thanks to Ariana for sharing this on her blog! She gets all the credit!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 t. vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat butter with sugars.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Stir in dry ingredients (baking soda, salt, flour).
Try not to over beat during any step. You're wanting to just combine all ingredients.
Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes for perfect cookies.
There ya have it! We've also made chili (J's recipe) and Creamy Orzo and Chicken with Vodka Sauce. Both were delicious! If you want what the orzo recipe, email me! I don't have it typed up, but I can if you want it!
What do you like to make on snow days? Also, do you enjoy being a bum (like me!) on your snow days?
