Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies *UPDATED*

Oh my goodness.  I'm hesitant to post this recipe, I want to be selfish and keep it all to myself!!  These cookies... are to die for...  If you've been looking for a chewy choco cookie recipe, look NO further!!  I swear, I'll never buy cookies again...  Heaven in your mouth is an understatement...  Crispy bottom, soft, chewy, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth goodness...  YUMM-O!!

Okay, so I won't take all the credit, another recipe found on -gosh I LOVE that site...  Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies  - There it is, I just shared a huge secret that only my bloggers will have!!  The secret - Jello Pudding Mix *GASP*!!!

So here's the recipe that's been tweaked:

Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions

My Uncle Elwin gave us some frozen salmon he had caught earlier in the year.  He delivered it all the way from Seattle (gosh I'm SO special!!)!!  I found this recipe on Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions and boyyyy was it yummy!!  I hadn't finished the onions when I took the picture, but it was paired perfectly with the salmon!!

Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Turkey Day!!
Inspired by my Fav cake pop artist, Bakerella, I attempted to make Turkeys for Thanksgiving!!  Here's what I used:
For the head: I cut the whoppers a tad to make a flat surface and i think it make it a little easier to stick.  Dab a little bit of chocolate and hold in place until it dries. For the tail, Candy Corn did the job perfectly.  Dab a little bit of chocolate on the end of each Candy Corn and hold it in place until it dries.   And for the feet, I snapped off the ends of pretzels.  If you're not fast enough to stick the feet in after dipping your cake ball in chocolate, you can always dab a little bit of chocolate at the end of the pretzel and hold in place until it dries.
And there you have it!  A happy family of Turkey Lollicakes or Cake Pops, whatever you want to call it!
And just because my bear is so Friggen cute, here's a picture of my Baby in his new Christmas PJ's!!  AAHH  I LOVE IT!
