The topic for today is A-Z Recipes that we love or want to try.
Now, I’m terrible at coming up with meals for the week prior to grocery shopping but I can write about food. Food is good. I like food. Food and I are on talking terms. We hang out once in a while. We’re friends. Especially when I’m not the one that is cooking and money or time are not an issue. Let’s good started on this brilliant food conversation:
A – A single cookie
B – Bite of a cookie
C – Cookies
D – Delicious cookies
E – Eating cookies
F – Feeding myself cookies
G – God, did I really just sing the ABC song to remember what came after F?
H – Hell yes I did and…cookies
I – Individually wrapped cookie
J – Jessica, you going to keep this up? Yes, cookies.
K – Keeping up with the cookies
L – Lovely cookies
M – More cookies
N – Never enough cookies*
O – Oreo cookie (shake)
P – Plenty of cookies
Q – *Quantity of cookies: Never enough
R – Reminiscing about cookies

T – Tummy full of cookies
U – Unlimited cookies?
V – Very nice cookies
W – Woah! Cookies!
Y – Yes, I really did this post all about cookies
Z – Ze cookiez (German cookies)
- 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (I don’t actually measure, I use a salt grinder and enjoy the bigger salt bits)
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Chocolate Chips (Any kind will do – milk chocolate seems to be the household favorite)
1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well…
3. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Literally just drop them. Don’t measure out the cookie then roll the crap out of them in your hands like they are balls of play-doh. Just measure and drop.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly (2 minutes for me); remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 5 dozen cookies. Minus the few that will be eaten while baking.
And this is how I’m rounding out this teaspoon sized post. Enjoy the cookie recipe and if you make some, don’t forget about me! I could use some cookies! Hint hint to the following ladies:
