Super Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Your eyes do not deceive you.

Super Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies | #recipeYes, I just stuffed an entire Oreo and and entire Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup inside a chocolate chip cookie.

Oh, and it’s not just any chocolate chip cookie. It’s The Best chocolate chip cookie on earth—the New York Times chocolate chip cookie.

Wait, can we real quick talk about how 5 years ago when I posted those cookies, David Leite himself (the freakin’ creator of said cookies), commented on my nobody blog about how “fantastic” and “gorgeous” mine were?! Don’t even try to tell me it was someone pretending to be him, because I’m pretty sure my entire world will shatter.

Super Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies | #recipeAlso, what the heck…at the beginning of this month, my blog turned five. I’m terrible at celebrating my blog birthdays, but oh my god, I have been blogging for FIVE FREAKING YEARS! It certainly does not feel that long! To be fair though, the first few years I was very bad about posting, probably because I was also going to school full-time, AND had a full-time job (for some of it).

Not to trail off and get too emotional, but I can’t even begin to describe what this blog and all of you mean to me. I love you guys to the moon and back, and I’m so so happy to have found my passion in life, and to be able to share it!

Super Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies | #recipeOkay, but these cookies, though. I totally blew a lot of people’s minds with them when I served them.They are outrageous, and over-the-top, and you will get so many bewildered compliments if you make these and share ‘em!

Julia's Beef Bourguignon and Garlic Mashed Potatoes | #recipe

Your Tuesday NEEDS this hearty comfort dish. Just trust me, it does. I was feeling a little Julia Child-inspired, so I decided to make her famous beef bourguignon. But, I didn’t stop there, I also made her garlic mashed potatoes (which just may be the best I’ve had). Sooo, just FYI, this is not a

Pumpkin Spice Latte Martini

Pumpkin Spice Latte Martini | #recipe

I made you a ridiculous martini for your Thursday! Is it just me, or is this week taking forever? I don’t know what the deal is, but I swear I’m caught in a time warp or something. I spent the majority of Tuesday thinking it was Wednesday, and now my brain can’t get over the

Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Spice Donuts | #recipe

Donuts, or doughnuts? Which do you say? …Or rather “spell”? I use both. I guess it just depends on my mood. “Doughnuts” seems like the classier, more hoity-toity aunt, while “donuts” is that familiar friend. Ya know? (Yes, I just compared the separate spellings of a word to people, and then went on about it far too long…)

Cheddar and Apple Egg Sandwich

Cheddar and Apple Egg Sandwich | #recipe

Okay, I know. It sounds kinda strange… But trust me! It totally works, you guys! I mean, cheddar in apple pies is a thing, so why can’t we pair both with scrambled eggs, and stuff it all between toast? We can and we will. You see, I’ve always been a little strange when it comes

Concord Grape Jam | #recipe

Peanuuuuut, peanut butter…AND JELLY! Anyone know that song? Anyone at all? Maybe you guys are too young, or too old, or maybe you didn’t religiously watch Barney and Friends with your younger siblings… That’s okay, I found you a poor quality Youtube version here (that led to me spending a good 20 minutes watching all of

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Scones

Double Chocolate Pumpkin Scones | #recipe

Are you going to hate me for giving you ANOTHER pumpkin recipe? I would apologize, but I’m really not sorry. In fact there is, quite literally, “all the pumpkin” in my bottom right-hand sidebar. Check it out. And it’s another scone recipe, because like I told you, I’m unashamedly obsessed with scones right now. But
