Inaguration for Little Ol' Me

After years of passively looking at all of the wonderful foodie blogs out there, I've finally decided to start my own. With just the right encouragement, I've finally come to realize my true dream. Yes, having a food blog has been my life-long dream. The hell with the accounting degree I'll be getting soon. I'm here to eat damnit! And eat I'll do! Now let's start on these chocolate chip cookies I baked just for the occasion. :)

 * How blasphemous!! A food blog with no recipe!? Sorry for not posting this earlier.These cookies are literally THE softest cookies ever because they're made with all brown sugar. If I had to compare, I'd say they're a homemade version of those Chewy Chips Ahoy. Mmmmm....

THE Softest Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C butter, softened
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 C flour
1 C (or more) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
With mixer on medium, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Put mixer on low and add the dry ingredients, just until incorporated. Stop the mixer and add chocolate chips by hand.
On a lined baking sheet, scoop out tablespoon-sized balls of dough. Bake for about 10-12 mins, or until lighty colored. (Though not browned! Always take them out before that happens, even if they don't look "done".)
Cool on wire rack and enjoy!!!

  3. Thanks everyone! I love this stuff, yet I'm already slacking!!

  4. and here I was hoping you would be posting a recipe for said chocolate chip cookies...

  5. You're right! I totally forgot!! I'll remedy that in a jiffy!

  6. Chocolate chip cookies are an awesome way to begin food blogging. So classic. So perfect. So delicious. Can't go wrong with chocolate chip cookies. Everyone is always trying to fine tune their recipe but the thing is...everyone is not heading for the same results. We all like something different in our cookies but it's always fun to try new recipes.

    Welcome! I will be checking back frequently.


  7. Thanks, Heidi! I'll try to keep up with some good stuff! And yes, you can NEVER go wrong with chocolate chip cookies!!!

  8. I am tempted to make these cookies. I will confirm if they are as good as they sound and seem.
